KELLY NEIL HEAD SHOT 2 (photo by Kelly Neil) SQUARESPACE.jpg

Hi. I'm Kelly. I create visual content to help food brands tell their story.

I know you're busy, trying to keep up with making and selling your product (not mention trying to keep up with your social media posts!) but if you let me phone you or visit you, for 30 minutes, I can help you with your online, visual storytelling strategy.

Step 1.png

Give me 30 minutes of your time and tell me your story.

I will phone you (or come visit you in person if that's feasible) and ask you key questions about your business like, why did you start your business? Who do you sell to? What daily challenges do you face? and more. After our interview I'll brainstorm a series of 3 brand photos that capture the essence of your story and then send you a proposal, complete with sketches, of what your brand shots will look like.

My open and bright apartment in Dartmouth doubles as a studio space with 9-foot ceilings, a large bank of windows, and accessible kitchen. I have a curated collection of backgrounds, props, dishes, linens, silverware, kitchen utensils and I'll send you photos of props to consider, before the shoot, to ensure the choices match the story you want to tell. Some clients like to be on site during the shoot and some simply don't have time - whatever works for you works for me. Within one week, I will send you 3, full resolution, edited images via Dropbox to use wherever, and however, you like.

Working with Kelly was awe-inspiring! Anyone who needs food photography done should contact her right now. It will be the best decision you made this year! Jennifer Laughlin, Owner, Schoolhouse Gluten-Free Gourmet
Kelly has always been our photographer of choice in Halifax. Her passion and creativity always shines through in her incredible shots and unique perspectives. Always enthusiastic about her work and an absolute pleasure to work with, Kelly Neil makes us want to have our photos taken every week! We're already looking forward to our next shoot. Matt Rogers, General Manager, Bishop's Cellar
At The Brooklyn Warehouse we have always tried to do the majority of our marketing and creative in-house but have never been able to capture images of our restaurant, the staff, and the food the way we want. Having Kelly take on this task freed us up, and we get the shots we need to promote our business. Her style is exactly how we envision our product line and environment. I'm excited for our next round of photography so that we can showcase our business even better. George Christakos, Owner, The Brooklyn Warehouse and Ace Burger Co.
Kelly fully grasped the intent and character of my recipes and portrayed them beautifully through her work. An outstanding culinary professional, excellent professional photographer, and lovely person to have around the kitchen, Kelly's a true triple threat! Elisabeth Bailey, author of Maritime Fresh
I can’t recommend Kelly enough. The quality of her work is exceptional, but beyond that she is a dream to work with. Specifically I was impressed by her ability to ask the right questions, understand exactly what the client wanted, then execute the process herself. She went above and beyond what I expected and I would work with her again in a heartbeat. Andrew Breen, Outshine Online Marketing
