What once started as a food blog due to my passion for all things food has now turned into a food & portrait photography business.

After graduating from NYC’s Institute of Culinary Education with a Culinary Arts degree in 2009, I dabbled in a few different endeavors. Trying to find my niche, I tried my hand at catering, cooking demonstrations and a food blog. With every venture I always returned to food photography.  I took each photo for my food blog and would spend hours perfecting each image.

One day, a girlfriend wanted maternity photos and I happily volunteered. That shoot turned into a newborn shoot then a family shoot. Now I would love the opportunity to capture a memorable time in your life. Knowing those memories will last a lifetime brings me such joy!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website, Heather

    This is an awesome site! I’m so proud of you and I LOVE what you have to say under the “About Me” section. I love to cook also, so this will be great fun trying some of your recipes. Odd that we both loathe baking. Wonder if that’s hereditary??

    I’ve known Heather since we were in diapers. I’d like to make a deal with her. For every Z is for Zest recipe I try, can I post one funny (and possibly embarrassing) story from childhood??? 🙂 Love you, sis!

      Hmmm… I would say yes BUT what if I need that material for future articles? 🙂 Love you too.
