Creating photographs that tell a unique story about products, places, people, and the passion that drives them.

Hello! I'm Carly, a food and lifestyle photographer in Portland, Oregon. My story is a winding one that took me across nations and oceans, through journalism, brand strategy, and visual communication. Along the way, my camera became my tool of choice to create and capture moments of beauty, creativity, and wonder in our wild world. 

After living in Rome, Seoul, and Amsterdam, I returned home to Portland, Oregon with my little family and founded my photography business. I collaborate with creatives across the food and design industries in Portland, Amsterdam, and beyond. 

My work has been published online and in print in a variety of publications, including Bon AppétitFood & WineSunsetLA Times, Kinfolk, Imbibe, Martha Stewart, Portland Monthly, Thrillist, USA TodayPure Green MagazineLife & Thyme, 1859 MagazineThe Oregonian, Food Republic, and more.
