Hi, I'm Emily!

I am a food photographer based in Tucson, Arizona, helping brands that value healthful ingredients, sustainability, and delicious plant-based food by creating beautiful images that reflect their brand and increase brand awareness.


While working as a nursing professional for many years, photography called me as a creative outlet. My interest in food photography developed after I took a plant-based cooking course for which I took photos of the recipes I made. This passion for food photography led to the creation of my food photography business.


When I'm not cooking or taking photos, you can find me exploring Tucson, doing yoga, diving into a new book, making my next batch of sourdough, or planning my next adventure with my husband!
