Welcome to Betsylife
Creativity is what drives me every day. There is nothing I love more than bringing ideas to life. This blog is a showcase of beautiful food photography, clever and unique recipes, and custom video content. On Fridays I post a weekly gratitude journal I call The Great List, because I truly believe that gratitude sets the foundation for a full life.
I’m a native Chicagoan turned Californian, with a BFA in painting. I started cooking in my 20’s and began working professionally as a food stylist 7 years ago after first working as a television producer. I love being on set, and collaborating with a creative team.
I currently reside in the San Francisco Bay Area after a long stint in San Diego. I’m married to The Hubs, have two rascally dogs, Olive (a black lab) and Summer (a blonde dachshund) and spend my days frantically trying to keep up production of all the wild ideas I’m constantly dreaming up both for this blog, and for my clients.
I’m also a yoga enthusiast, very proud aunt (11 nieces and nephews), lover of the outdoors, and a travel nut.
