Hi there!

I'm Kara, a food photographer, stylist and graphic designer based in the Sacramento Valley.

As a child, my fondest food memories were baking with my sister and my grandmother. Learning how to cook was still a ways away but going away to college forced me to figure it out on my own. During my last few years of college, my final projects always seemed to gravitate towards topics that integrated food and design. It strongly became clear that being able to work in both food and design was the dream. Without even knowing it, after graduating in 2015, I found myself in a position where I am now able to work in these two fields simultaneously.

I find great joy in capturing the beauty of food in its most pure and natural form and finding ways to incorporate it into design pieces. Almost every other second, you’ll find me tinkering in the kitchen and more often than not baking all sorts of things for my blog, kneadbakecook.com.
