Hi there, I'm Meagan! I started Nutmeg Imageworks in 2012 after years of working with an established commercial photographer in Virginia. Taking my love of baking and my skills learned with shooting products at my day job, I committed whole-heartedly to the craft of food photography and haven't regretted it for a second! I moved back to my hometown of Seminole Florida in 2012, opening the Nutmeg Imageworks studio in Largo the same year. I try to keep Nutmeg's style clean and organic, utilizing natural light whenever possible and using my curated collection of props to emphasize the natural beauty of the food!

I have 2 really wonderful assistants that you're likely to see on set. One is my husband Aaron who, although isn't on set as often as he used to be, is still a key figure in the business. He helps me with everything from the big decisions, to the little decisions, to rigging, to digital teching, to emotional support, to literally anything and everything else I need!
My other lovely assistant is Sharma Shari. Sharma is a fantastic photographer in her own right, specializing in all things geeky! She has a master's degree in Photography and a passion for commercial work which makes her an amazing asset on set! Couldn't ask for a better friend and supporter to have on the job!
These two keep me very busy when I'm not at the studio! Our english bulldog Bandit, who has been my little girl for almost 11 years now is full of energy even as an older pup and has the silliest faces you'll ever see! We also just adopted a young coonhound mix that we named Blue. He is absolutely FULL of energy! He's a handful, but we love that he keeps us so active!
Fun fact: After I snapped that action shot of Blue, he smashed into my camera which then smashed into my face. Don't worry, pup and camera are fine! A little face bruising is a small price to pay to capture this boy in action!
