Sarah did not always do food photography; she holds a Bachelor of Science degree from University of Toronto Scarborough, in Neuroscience and Psychology, she was a pharmacy assistant, a cashier, dental hygienist, and office manager. When she gave birth to her third child, that’s when she made the decision to pick up the camera and photograph her amazing culinary creations. She was instantly hooked. The recipes, the styling, the engaging stories she would tell, it all came together and she loved it all.
Her excitement lies when she pairs with a company and they just hit it off. She loves nothing more than bringing ingredients together and creating a story or a recipe that just showcases their products so well, and is delighted when sh can help other photographers with their questions and help them get closer to their dream goals.
Sarah is also a contributor for Best of Vegan, the #1 online resource for vegan cooking. In addition, she writes a bi-weekly newsletter with a dash of realness, a pinch of humor, informative vegan health and fitness tips and facts, so that you can be in the know. Most recently she wrote a three-part series on epigenetics, and how we are what our parents and our grandparents ate, and how nurture affects nature. She delves into ways to help reduce toxic exposure, i.e. go greener, omit animal products and by-products, use cleaning products that contain natural ingredients. She discusses the body’s main detoxification tool, the liver, how it is essential to keep our bodies in check so that we can support it. She stresses the importance of a plant-based organic diet, investing in a water filtration system, supporting the gut, the immune system with natural prebiotics such as inulin, pectin, hesitant resistant starches like onions, bananas, artichokes, dandelion greens and garlic, as well as polyphenols which are found in fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices. She also stresses the body’s need for probiotics and fermented foods such as kimchi, miso, and tempeh, which can benefit the central nervous system resulting in neuroprotective effects.
Sarah continues her plant-based and vegan journey and always writes with gratitude from the heart perfecting each newsletter by bringing knowledge through her experiences, dreams and creations, that captures the end-user.
