Hello! I’m Nicole. Photographer, stylist and recipe developer.

I’m an Italian girl at heart, cooking is in my blood. AlthoughI was a late bloomer with cooking, I could barely boil an egg until I was 21! Then I got myself into the kitchen, my dad taught me most of his cooking tricks, “LAYERS HE WOULD SAY COOKING IS IN LAYER’S”. I spent countless hours chopping onions (moistly crying from them) and reading ENDLESS amounts of cookbooks to refine my skills. Now, I Specializing in Gluten + Dairy free cooking, you'll find a bit of sweet and savory recipes over on the blog. When i’m not in the kitchen, you’ll find me photographing my next adventure. I’m based in Sunny Phoenix, Arizona and I’m always up to travel anywhere to photograph a project!
