Hello and welcome!
I love food! Growing up on a farm outside of Portland, Oregon, my mom had a large garden with an abundance of fruits and veggies. Now living in Venice Beach, California, I'm lucky to be able to shop at farmers markets for produce year round. My love for natural, beautiful and delicious foods has lead me to follow my passions and create my own business, Peas Thank You. I specialize in food styling, which goes hand in hand with recipe development and photography. All of the images I share are original recipes, styled and shot by me.
I believe the best dishes typically consist of simple ingredients of the best quality, so buying quality food and using what is in season are my keys to creating the prettiest and tastiest dishes. I have always enjoyed trying new restaurants to inspire the dishes and platters I create. I am always challenging myself to come up with creative ways to style food; playing with different lighting, angles, props and ingredients. I have enjoyed working with many different companies to match their aesthetic or often come up with a new vision for styling their products. Not a day goes by where I am not gathering inspiration and thinking of ways to apply what I find to my own work.
Throughout my more than 10 years in the culinary field, I have been a server in many amazing restaurants, performed a full range of services for catering companies, taught cooking classes, and studied photography throughout college. There is rarely a time that I am not reading about food, recipes, styling, or dietary health. All the meals I prepare are my own recipes, with organic ingredients that are locally sourced from farmers markets or neighborhood grocery stores. This is the experience, skill, and culinary practice I bring to all of the services I provide!
If you are looking for someone to develop recipes around your product, need a food stylist for a shoot you are planning, or want me to take your product from start to finish with recipe development, styling and photographing images for you to use for marketing, I am your girl! I can do it all.
