Today is my birthday. I’m turning 26! So much has changed in the past year. Most notably, I quit my day job and (so far) am successfully working as a freelance food and still life photographer. I feel ridiculously lucky! =) I haven’t been able to update the blog much this summer so I thought I’d take […]

BUST Magazine Luckyrice Isa Does It Some bits and pieces about me:
- I love all kinds of photography but am particularly drawn to food, still life, and lifestyle photography. I'm very passionate about creating beautiful light. It's not uncommon for me to use up to 8 different light sources for one shot. Although sometimes just 1 or 2 does the trick. =)
- Styling. The best thing I ever did for my photography is put the camera down and start collecting props. I love telling stories with props. When the right lighting is paired with the right props, magic happens.
- I live in a Brooklyn apartment with my boyfriend and fat, yellow cat above the best bagel shop in all of NYC.
- I really love tea.
- I really love gin.
- I grew up in SW Virginia and went to college in West Virginia. I am a mountain girl at heart.
- I want to travel everywhere.
- Oh, and I love food. <3
