Hi, I'm Emma.

I'm a food photographer for restaurants, brands, and bloggers. Based in San Jose, CA, I'm available for both remote and in-person photo shoots in the Bay Area.

In addition to photographing food for others, I create and capture festive recipes for my blog, Holiday Sweets n Treats, celebrating all things holiday as much and as frequently as possible!
