Hi! I’m Anne.

I have always seen the world through the lens of a culinary enthusiast, so it makes sense that I fell in love with capturing images of my passion in action from a young age. I am so grateful for the success I have found in the food world as a photographer and I hope you enjoy visiting my site as you spend a little time seeing the world through my eyes.

I am excited to share my perspective with you, not only through my photographs, but also my experience styling food, creating recipes, and ultimately where it all started for me – cooking.

Tomorrow, Nov 30th, is the #NationalDayOfGiving also known as #GivingTuesday here in America. It's been my personal experience that there is no greater way to lift my spirits than to give of myself.

On a deeply personal note, I really discovered the true meaning of this along my journey during my husband Tim's cancer battle. Whenever Tim had a surgery or treatment that I wasn't allowed to attend with him due to hospital protocols, instead of standing around & pacing with worry, I chose to take myself to the store, spend whatever I had in my wallet on supplies & food, put together some 'gift packets', and then go to downtown San Diego to distribute the packets to the homeless. I just wanted to shower them with love and whatever little bit of kindness I could share at that moment. It sounds counterintuitive, as in my "moment of need" most people would think that giving of myself would have drained me further - but, the funny thing was, I discovered that the opposite was true. Giving to others and showering them with love actually filled me with more peace & gratitude than I ever thought possible, particularly in those vulnerable moments. ❤️ It helped me feel like I was DOING something in a moment of helplessness. And I truly believe that "to give is to receive" - happiness comes when we give of ourselves, no matter the circumstances.

It doesn't matter how much you give - or even what you give - as long as you give with the selfless intention of loving others & serving life, it will always come back to you in spades.

Really WOW your friends & family at the Thanksgiving table this year with this Spiced, Roasted Maple Kabocha With Cherry Bacon Compote and Gorgonzola dish! 🤤

This was a beautiful recipe created by @hannasgourmetsd that I cooked/styled/shot for the team over at @sandiegomag for the "6 Recipes to Cook at Home This Fall" article last year. And if you want to make this recipe in a meatless direction, you can simply omit the bacon from the compote and replace it with a little bit of coconut oil & a dash of smoked paprika to keep the smoky flavor in the dish (I gave this a try and it turned out great!). #ThanksgivingSides

Taste the rainbow 🌈🍏

Autumn = Apples, so this one's for all of my fellow apple lovers out there! Delicious on their own, or used in both savory & sweet recipes - these little beauties are always a staple in my Fall kitchen pantry. What's your favorite thing to make with apples?🍎
