My photography aims to engage people more closely with the world around them, and with the love of food that feeds body and soul. I take a natural approach to creating images: I want them to look approachable and even more desirable -   to me a food photo is successful if it makes you want to reach in and eat it, or at least engage with it on several different sensory levels. I'm available world wide but divide my time mainly between the West Coast of Canada, the Eastern United States, and the UK.

When I'm not with camera in hand I'm usually in the kitchen, renovating our old farmhouse, or planning my next adventure with my amazing husband and three crazy kids. So far we've covered the world from the Orkney Islands to Vancouver Island and all stops in between.
