Hi, I’m Elle! I’m a professional food photographer, registered dietitian, and recipe developer.
I have a Master’s of Public Health in Nutrition from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Bachelor’s in Communication and Media Studies from Boston College. I began my career in nutrition as the lead dietitian at MyFitnessPal where I provided nutrition expertise, insight, and leadership that became foundational in the company’s product, digital marketing, and more.
In 2016, I decided to pursue my true passion: professional food photography and recipe content creation. I’ve been creating food content for over a decade and professionally for more than six years.
Most days, you can find me working somewhere in the house — either testing a new recipe in the kitchen, shooting food photos or video in one of our large picture windows, or editing at my desk. One thing I love about my job is that every day looks a little bit different!
Outside of work, I’m a minimalism-obsessed mama to two adorable (albeit exhausting!) kiddos. We have a home in beautiful Bend, Oregon and sunny Alicante, Spain. When I’m not shooting in my home studios, you can probably find me soaking in the outdoors skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking. My favorite things include pasta, podcasts, high-waisted yoga pants, sweaty workouts, and low-key family time.
