Collaborating with brands around the world to create engaging content and share powerful stories.

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 a small visual production agency. I've worked with clients across the food, beverage, product, and apparel 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 TodayLife & Thyme, 1859 MagazineThe Oregonian, Food Republic, and more.

Clients have included: Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Tillamook, The Wonderful Company, Finex, Olympia Provisions, Blue Star Donuts, Portland Sangria, Tony's Chocolonely, SE Wine Collective, Kachka, Bob's Red Mill, Feast Portland, Ataula, Bull Run Distillery, Steven Smith Teamakers, Portland Juice Co., Salt & Straw, Studio A+, Frozz Amsterdam, Vía Raíz, and more.
