Hello my name is Nikki. I'm a writer, photographer, and cook. I started this blog seven years ago as a place to keep my writing and photography habit. Along the way, I started to share food stories and recipes too. I live in the hills of western Massachusetts where there's plenty of farm fresh produce to keep me busy along with my husband, David, and our sons, Luke and Cody. This is a place where I make with words, images, and sustenance. You can expect to find creative inspiration, photo tutorials, cooking videos, and vegetarian recipes made with whole and natural ingredients (often sourced close to home). Pull up a seat, join me for coffee, and let's talk. I hope you leave here inspired to tell or story or two, start your photo habit, or cook some good food. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing and studied Photography/Studio Arts as an MFA candidate. I teach film and digital photography workshops as well as cooking classes throughout New England. You can register for my online photography e-course Develop Your Habit & Style and get my ebook Design, Shoot, & Show — Your iPhone Photo Project in the shop. You can find recent editorial work printed in Edible Pioneer Valley and Bella Grace Magazine.
