Hi! My name is Emily Miller, a Tucson based photographer. I am the food photographer and content creator behind my blog, Resplendent Kitchen. I help brands and restaurants by creating mouthwatering images that reflect their brand and tell their story.
I've been taking photos since I was ten years old. Many years ago, I took a cooking class for which I had to submit images of the food I made as part of the assignments. That's when my desire to learn about the art of food photography began, and I have been hooked ever since!
About the blog
I started this blog as a place to share my creative passions for food photography and plant-based food. Over the years, I had acquired necessary cooking skills by teaching myself how to cook through cookbooks and the occasional cooking class for fun. I love to share plant-based recipes and hopefully inspire others to incorporate more plants in their dishes.
My experience of working as a registered nurse for many years has given me a unique perspective on how diet and lifestyle affect health. The recipes you'll find here are wholesome and plant-based with the occasional indulgent recipe. I have a passion for cooking, eating, discovering new foods along the way, and photographing food. Through my recipes and food photography, I hope to inspire you to get creative in your kitchen!
My work has been featured by Feed Feed, Finding Vegan. I was honored by Peerspace to be recognized as one of The 7 Best Food Photographers in Tucson! One of my images had been shortlisted in the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2020. I have been awarded several Foodelia International Food Photography Awards.
My photos have been featured on many social media accounts: Earthbound Farm, Edward & Sons Trading Co., Follow Your Heart, La Brea Bakery, La Vieille Ferme, Lauren B Beauty, Pasolivo, Rose Dose, St. Dalfour USA, Suncore Foods, Sur La Table, Tastemaker Conference, Theo Chocolate, Tofutti Brands, and Victoria Fine Foods.
I have worked with Empress 1908 Gin, Jefferson Street Ceramics, Imperfect Produce, Lotus Foods, and Nielsen-Massey Vanillas.
I love to keep learning; I am always signing up for online courses. I continually learn about photography and strive to keep improving and enhancing my skills.
I love cooking and baking tasty plant-based food in our kitchen, practicing yoga, and spending time with my husband and our adorable adopted cats Milo and Oreo. I have a new obsession with sourdough!
I love to travel with my husband and explore new places and revisit familiar ones. We have visited the Caribbean, Italy, France, Costa Rica, and Canada. Where do I want to go next? Costa Rica!
