The first of many...

I am so excited to be getting this newest part of my journey off the ground.  I feel the best way to start is to tell you all a little about myself and my vision.  I am not going to ramble on about myself, but rest assured, you will learn more and more about the chef behind the lens with each post.  I put a lot of my heart and soul into every dish I create and every photograph I take.  I will tell you that I am a trained chef as well as a trained photographer.  We all know education is very important, but without a passion for what you are doing it will always be just a job.  I began photographing at a young age, and I have always loved to cook. However, it took some time to realize that I could take my 2 passions and marry them into one amazing life and career.  

I have had this blog in my head for quite some time, but I was unsure of the direction it should go.  A few days ago, a light went off and I HAD IT!  The vision...the concept...the plan... so here we go! I love to photograph, and my camera is always with me.  I love to photograph everything from people to animals to flowers, and  I even spend a lot of time snapping at squirrels, yes, squirrels.  I don't know what the fascination with them is, but it always makes me smile and I have so much fun when they are out playing and letting me take their photos.   With that said, my all time favorite subject is food. All kinds of food. I love to cook, and I love to eat, but I also really love to photograph fine cuisine.  It is where my passion lies, and I am thrilled that I can combine my love for fine cuisine with my love of photography.  To have someone look at an image and just want to reach in and enjoy it....WOW...it doesn't get much better than that.
