Hi! I’m Rebecca, a commercial and editorial food and brand photographer with a studio in Nashville, and I specialize in helping chefs, restaurants, bakers, and makers market with soulful images to elevate their brands, connect with clients, and sell more of their work. I also photograph food for cookbooks and magazines including Edible Nashville and Tennessee Home & Farm.

Helping people feel and look comfortable and natural in photos is one of my superpowers, and I guide you through the photoshoot to bring your content to life with movement and energy! I never just show up and shoot. Instead, I take the time to get to know you and your brand, and I take the time to plan, style, and intentionally create compelling images that promote your food, your products, and your personality in a natural, soulful way.

1. Free consultation
2. Session planning
3. Timeline
4. Photo inspiration

the photography experience

This is for you if...

• You’re a chef, baker, artisan maker, restaurateur, farmer, or other hard-working entrepreneur driven by big goals and a passion for your product.

• You have a solid marketing plan, but you lack a cohesive collection of photos to make your brand consistently, visually recognizable.

• You need professional photographs that tell your brand story in a natural way that really feels like you and helps you connect with your customers.

• You need beautiful photographs that will upgrade your website, sales pages, ads, menus, social media, and other marketing content.

• You’re tired of pulling together DIY photos from your iPhone and images from a dozen different photographers.

What will we shoot?
Whatever your brand needs! Branding sessions are customized to your brand look, message, and your upcoming needs. Before the shoot, we’ll discuss your ideas and hopes for your photos, along with upcoming launches, offerings, or events for me to keep in mind as I plan your session. I’ll send over an in-depth questionnaire, which I’ll use to do my pre-shoot research, and I’ll then map out your shoot to best tell the story of your brand, and I’ll plan the flow of your shoot from start to finish.

Do you style my photos and direct the session?
Yes! It’s another way I take the stress out of your photoshoot - I style and creatively direct everything on the day of your shoot. So you can relax and enjoy the process.

Where can I use these photos?
My past clients have used their brand photos on everything from Instagram and websites to newsletters, menus, About pages, Facebook ads, large outdoor signs, and more! I’ll get a good idea of how you’re thinking of using your photographs before we shoot so I can be sure the images will fit your needs!

How long after the photo shoot can I expect image delivery?
This can vary, but my absolute guarantee is a four-week turnaround. I always aim to beat that, and in most cases, I do! If you have a specific timeline requiring expedited turnaround times, please feel free to fill out my contact form to discuss your specific questions.
