PLANT-BASED food and PRODUCT photography

by Kari of beautiful ingredient

I'm Kari, a food photographer specializing in plant-based food living on a beautiful island near Seattle.

A Little History

I have always been a food lover, and once I had kids, I became very interested in the quality of food. A few years ago, I created a website for a business that I'd built designing beautiful organic table linens for clients like Food52 and Bloomingdale's and decided to start a blog of recipes to go along with the linens shop. I wanted to create the most ideal, beneficial recipes, which led me to discover a plant-based lifestyle. Soon, the table linen business grew beyond what one person could do, and I knew I didn't want to manage their production. Around the same time I discovered a deep love of food photography and now focus on food and photography full time.

What I Can Do For You

Photography: I am available for commercial and editorial plant-based food photography, so whether you have a vegan food product that needs website or social media images or a plant-based cookbook that needs a photographer or an organic produce farm that needs images for marketing materials, I'm here for you and I'm excited to get to work! Telling your unique story through beautiful images is what I do. Basically, if you need photos of anything in the world of plant-based food, products, or florals, I'm interested in providing that for you. Food styling is a skill I can bring to photography shoots as well to make your product really shine! I can handle everything from helping you establish the style of your unique brand images to post processing and image delivery. While I primarily work in my studio, I am happy to discuss on-location photography projects for plant-based restaurants, events, and getaways.

Are you looking for beautiful plant-focused artwork for your restaurant or office? I'm happy to provide that for you! Nature photography is a passion of mine.

Recipes: I also offer recipe development services! So if you have a need for an original plant-based recipe, such as for a food product to showcase, let's talk!


I love helping people discover the beauty of eating more plants. I feel a sense of responsibility to both people and planet with the work that I do, which is why I work exclusively with plant-based brands, especially those that are organic and vegan. Is that your brand? I believe the world needs you.

More About Me

Beyond these services, I share quick & easy recipes and ideas over at the Beautiful Ingredient blog, helping my readers discover quick and easy cooking methods so they can eat more plants and love doing it.

When I'm not in my photography studio or the kitchen, I'm usually spending time with my family, catching up with friends on a walk, attempting to do yoga, or curled up with a good book and our dog, Maisie. And I'm probably eating homemade pecan butter while doing at least one of those things.
