Who am I???

Hi there, my name's Dena. I am a South African born, Botswana raised and now, an honorary Irish citizen through many years of friendship with incredible Irish people and now marriage. My husband and I live with our beautiful baby boy, Elliot in Donnycarney, Dublin 9 and couldn't be happier. I am a huge foodie and wine lover. My favourite holiday is a very hot beach kinda one with plenty of BBQ's and seafood! 

I love to meet people, from all walks of like and support the weird and wonderfulness that makes us all our own special kind of magic. 

My journey to food photography was was a long one and rather accidental but I am 100% certain that it was meant to be that way. If you want to read all about that, hop over to my about me section here.

Food and Drink

I have worked extensively in the food industry and understand the nature of a busy store. It's very important to me that the floor and kitchen staff are put under the least amount of pressure as possible during the shoot. 

I am experienced in both food styling and photography.
