Hi, friends! I’m Emily- Nutrititarian (now Hey Emily Ann) was created my senior year in college as a dietitian-to-be as a way for me to inspire people with meal and recipe ideas. As a new dietitian right out of college, my mantra was “eat clean”. Whenever and wherever, nutrition should be the focus. Or so I thought. However over the past 3 years my views have shifted. My life since graduation has taken me to many places that have shaped how I see food and nutrition and health and wellness as a whole. I wholeheartedly believe in wholesome nutrition to promote wellness and am fascinated by food’s ability to affect our bodies. But I also believe that food is source of joy. It brings people together, it creates community. It is a way to love others. It brings people to the table, to a place of vulnerability creating a space for supporting one another. And so why shouldn’t something so important be captured beautifully and be shared with the masses? This is a question that has led me to start my food photography career- yet another way to share food and encourage people to share it together!
I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my husband where I work as a food photographer and also am attending culinary school at Johnson and Wales! My hope for this space is that you can find some inspiration in recipes and photos to get in the kitchen and gather your tribe around the table to share in the one thing that unites us all- food. Thanks so much for being here!
