MEET BETSYLIFE | FOOD STYLIST

Hi I'm Betsy! I'm a native midwesterner turned Californian who began my food styling career 8 years ago after a successful stint as a television producer. 

Creativity is what drives me everyday. Bringing ideas to life, especially when in conjunction with a creative team is what makes my world go 'round. 

When I'm not styling food, photographing food or making food videos, I'm blogging, exploring California with my dogs and husband, doing yoga and painting.
