Nice to e-meet you, I'm Emily!

I'm a Tucson-based commercial photographer specializing in plant-based food and product photography.

I create beautiful images that tell stories about your brand, evoke feelings of joy and wellness, and build awareness for your brand. My images are sure to bring your products to life and help you increase sales with my captivating photos, unique storytelling skills, and eye-catching content.

You'll often find me exploring Tucson and the farmers markets or making my next batch of sourdough. I love to travel, so don't be surprised if you see me planning my next adventure with my husband. And when I'm not traveling? You can usually find me whipping up a favorite recipe, writing for my plant-based food blog Resplendent Kitchen, or creating images.

Food Focus

Food photography is my bread and plant-based butter; this means you'll partner with someone who is an expert at capturing the beauty of plant-based food. I help my clients tell their brand's values and story through the use of fresh ingredients, lighting, and thoughtful prop and background selection. I know what it takes to bring out the very best in your plant-based food and products.

Simple Approach

I take a clean and minimal approach to my work and allow the food to speak for itself, making it the main focus. From bright images filled with light to moody scenes evoking a sense of drama, I know how to create images that speak to and resonate with your ideal customer. You'll find my photographs to be simple yet strong enough to captivate your audience and drive results.

Food Passion

My food photography business is more than just a job. It's my true passion. I left my nursing career behind me to do what I love: shoot mouthwatering images of healthy ingredients and fresh foods to help businesses such as yours flourish. This passion for food and photography allows me to unleash my creativity to help plant-based brands achieve success by creating imagery to help them meet their business goals.

Concepts were strategized to be on-brand with the client, but still feel organic on Emily's channel. Once published, her audience responded enthusiastically to the content, with many commentators calling out the brands by name. Especially during a crazy year and during the holiday season, Emily was the height of professionalism.”
