The Local FFF is Schenectady New York’s newest arcade and entertainment center. They brought me in to shoot their full menu for social media and online ordering purposes. We had a blast working on this shoot to capture the wide range of items in addition to some cocktails and the arcade! The Local FFF is a great addition to the Rotterdam area and offers so many things to do! The fries are delicious (I snuck a few…👀) and the extensive […]
There’s nothing better than outdoor dining in Saratoga Springs, NY. That’s why when I was asked to photograph the new Cantina Rooftop I was ecstatic! Cantina is one of Saratoga’s most popular restaurants and their rooftop was already a guaranteed success. Although the day was incredibly hot (who knew rooftops got so hot? 😅) the staff at Cantina made my job easy and fun. The bartenders and I worked together to capture their fun and refreshing cocktails, while the space […]
In addition to shooting for clients, I make it a point to do personal projects, both for portfolio building and creativity’s sake. This shoot was a bit of both! I was itching to do a cocktail shoot and have had my eye on the gorgeous Brooklyn Gin for a while now. The beautiful aqua bottle mixed with the metal details creates a vintage, slightly masculine vibe that I LOVE. I’ve also been wanting to do a shoot with vintage-inspired glassware […]
In October I visited Cantina in Saratoga Springs, NY to capture some of their popular menu items and cocktails! The goal was to capture the lively environment of Cantina while showcasing the delicious food and drinks available. The restaurant is a favorite amongst locals and tourists and is always bustling with people. The photos were taken for use on social media and I know they’ll entice people to visit, especially during Saratoga’s track season in the summer!
The 408 is one of Saratoga Springs’s newest event spaces. Located above Cantina, the modern venue has a luxurious but intimate feel and is perfect for small weddings, rehearsal dinners, showers, and more. Chef Mary Nickler has curated menus for every palate and her plating is stunning! From charcuterie boards and soups to perfect filet mignon and mini cheesecakes, the food at The 408 does not disappoint. Shooting with Mary and her team was an absolute pleasure!

If you’ve never worked with a photographer before the process of finding one may be a little overwhelming. A quick Google search will provide a list of photographer’s websites and each one should have a portfolio for you to look for.

The restaurant industry is not an easy one to be in. It requires long hours, a lot of money, and putting trust in staff members that they will help run and represent the restaurant well. Because of the challenges the restaurant industries presents, hiring a food photographer is often looked at as an unnecessary luxury. After all, why invest in a professional when everyone owns a smartphone these days? Any big foodie who is looking for their next new restaurant […]
Many people close to me know that my journey with photography started with a beauty and lifestyle blog I started before my junior year of college. From that, one of my first partnerships with a company was with Bird and Blend Tea Co based out of Brighton England. I first discovered the tea company when I studied abroad in Brighton. I quickly became obsessed, falling in love with their unique blends and bringing as many packets of loose leaf tea […]
When I first started getting into blogging and photography, I was convinced everyone had marble countertops and subway tile backsplashes. It never occurred to me that they could be using backdrops to create a scene.Now I am less naïve and much more knowledgeable. Not everyone is blessed with a kitchen designed by Joanna Gaines so we have to fake it. This is where the magic of backdrops comes in. Photography backdrops help you create the high-quality food and product photography […]
