WHAT I DO...

FOOD Companies
Food Styling/Consulting 

 

Long before A la Carte, I was a food stylist.  I have prepared food for many major food companies, books and magazines. My clients include Bertolli, Nestle’s, Hershey’s, Nabisco, Pepperidge Farms, WaWa Foods, Kings Supermarkets, Chocolatier Magazine, Family Circle Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, International Masters Publishers, Kitchen Aid, Lifetime Brands, Parade Magazine, Kraft and many more.

 

Not only have I mastered the art of food styling, but I have also mastered the art of bringing a group together to work as a team on a photography shoot. My vast knowledge of food well as my sense of style and relaxed attitude brings a feeling of confidence to both photographers and clients.
