I’m Rachel

Food is my love language.

I believe that food is a language all its own. To me, it’s a love language—one that I first learned when my mother taught me how to cook for our family of four. It then blossomed wildly when I discovered the joy of The Food Network, and I began taking my cookbook collection quite seriously. The more I learned about the language of food, the more I came to believe this truth; it’s not about what food you cook and serve for people, it’s about how.

Whether I’m cooking in my kitchen, tending to my garden, or seated at the dinner table surrounded by dear friends, I love how food cultivates connection and is always speaking to us and through us. It’s always telling a story. 

As a wedding and portrait photographer for the past nine years, I’ve developed an eye that searches for stories to tell with care and honesty. I’m eager and delighted to partner my years of photography experience with a lifelong love of mine, and to become more fluent in a language that really does connect us all.

It’s this passion that has led to the creation of the Visual Storytelling Kits below. 

 

 

Starter Kits

Designed for:

Restaurants looking to establish their visual brand identity or who need a little sprucing up.

Purpose:

Many of our real life decisions are informed by our digital lives—especially when it comes to food and restaurants. Is this restaurant any good? Let me check out some reviews on Yelp. Anything tasty on the menu? I’ll peruse their website. What’s their dining experience like? Let’s scroll through their Instagram feed.

Every one of these increasingly common interactions is an opportunity to tell your story, share your passion, and engage with your customers before they ever step foot in the door. We want to help you capitalize on these “digital touchpoints” by not only showing what you do, but who you are and how you do it.

Shoot Focus:

Our Starter Kit shoot options equip you with an inventory of images focused on: your restaurant’s interior and exterior, styled food portraits, featured menu items, kitchen activity, mise en place, front-of-house happenings, documentary images of customers, and chef/staff portraits. It’s basically everything you need to get your visual brand rolling or jumpstart it again.

Whether you opt for the Essentials or the Comprehensive, our goal is the same: to provide you with a beautiful foundation of images that empower you to put your best food forward.

Subscription kits

Designed for:

Restaurants in need of new and consistent content for social media, website, and more.

Purpose:

Fresh content is key to cultivating an engaged (and hungry!) audience, but it can be tiresome to keep up with. Our Subscription Kits are designed to provide you with consistent, quality content that not only keeps you in front of your audience, but also empowers you to share more of your story through distinctive imagery.

Additionally, we understand that business, budget, and content needs may fluctuate. We’ve purposefully structured a quarterly contract commitment allowing you to easily reassess your needs throughout the year. Need more or less images? No problem! Subscribe to a new option or take a break. We’re small business owners who understand small business owners.

Shoot Focus:

Our Subscription Kit shoot options provide you with a new library of images each month. The focus of these shoots is flexible and can be catered to what you need most. Maybe it’s photos for social media one month and capturing the new outdoor patio the next. Maybe it’s new banner images for your website one month and staff portraits the next. Whatever the visual need, we’re here to help!
