I’m Megan, a San Diego-based food photographer, stylist, nutritionist, and all-around food enthusiast. Documenting any step of the food journey from plant to plate is my favorite. My specialty lies in crafting rich visual imagery to promote food (and food-adjacent) brands that offer creative solutions towards bettering the health of our bodies, our communities, and/or our planet.
The true beginning of my love affair with photography was serendipitous. In 2007, unbeknownst to me, my partner entered me in a half-marathon because he heard there were cash prizes. I guess it’s nice to have someone that “believes” in you, or maybe were just short on cash. It’s hard to say at this point. Miraculously, I managed to finish the race and place third. Yep. Third out of three women. Later, after spending a day in bed with a pizza to recover, the prize money led to the purchase of my first decent camera.
Being a nutritionist, food photography was a natural progression. For me, the beauty of food itself provided ample inspiration, but food as a medium for self-expression was equally fascinating. Feeding one another can be an act of love, a history of family and ancestors, a celebration of culture, an art form, a paycheck, a vital component of both social and environmental justice, and ultimately an incredible vehicle for human connection.
Now that you know a little about me, how can I help? I’d love the opportunity to get to know you a little better!
