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

If you're in search of a talented plant-based food photographer specializing in editorial and lifestyle commercial photography, you've come to the right place.

Through my images you can tell an exciting story about your brand, a story that evokes feelings of joy and wellness while building brand awareness and increasing revenue. A story that allows you to meet or even exceed your marketing goals, no matter what they may be.

When I'm away from my camera, you can find me exploring Tucson and the farmers markets or making my next batch of sourdough. I love to travel, so you'll often find me planning my next adventure with my husband. I also love to whip up my favorite recipes, write, and create images for my plant-based food blog Resplendent Kitchen.

Why I'm Different

If the thought of hiring a professional photographer is stressful, let me assure you that you can trust me to be there every step of the way, whether you are local to Tucson, Arizona, or whether we work together remotely. I'll keep you updated and informed as we work together on the project, from the initial concept, mood board, and shot list all the way to the final images.

From the moment you call me for a complimentary consultation, you’ll notice that I’m not your ordinary photographer. Here are a few of the many reasons I stand out from the crowd. If you're a brand or business that can benefit from high-quality, stunning plant-based images for your marketing, website, or social media, don't hesitate to email me today!

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.

Client list

I'm honored to have created images for amazing clients including Cakebread Cellars, Empress 1908 Gin, Imperfect Produce, Louis Jadot, and Nielsen-Massey Vanillas.. To see what they're saying, read on.



“After connecting on IG, I collaborated with Resplendent Kitchen on campaigns for Louis Jadot and Cakebread Cellars. Emily kept me updated on every step of her creative process. 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.”
