Hi, I'm Melanie!

I was born in England, lived in Tenerife (Canary Isles) for a few years, then South Africa for 15 years and now finally settled in South Louisiana.  During those years I traveled to many countries and one of my favorite past times is eating and dining out.  I will always try something once and like most things.

I began my food blog, The Cagle Diaries in January of 2020.  After a few months in I realized I needed to improve my photography and so signed up to an amazing online food photography school where I learned the ins and outs of photographing food and what bloggers are specifically looking for, etc.  

Almost 2 years later I have photographed so many recipes it's crazy.  The craziest thing, I still love it.  My dream is to be able to work 100% on my own blog and my own recipes, but until then - I am at your service to create some beautiful content for your blog!

Frequently Asked Questions

How many images would I receive?

That would all depend on the recipe and the level of difficulty etc.  I photograph every step of the recipe, then typically there is an average of about 15-20 hero images in both portrait and landscape.

Can I rush my order?

I do offer an expedite service. You'll see the option at checkout.

Do you offer volume discounts?

If it were all paid at the same time then yes, I do offer levels of discounts based on the volume of work.

What if I want something changed?

I am always going to try to ensure my clients are 200% happy with the images received. If you need something changed please don't hesitate to discuss it with me.

What kind of backdrops do you have?

I do have a variety of backdrops, from white marble, burnt blue wood, rustic white wood... and everything in between (it feels like).  When ordering my services there will be a form to complete that will have the options to choose from.

My recipe uses a particular kitchen appliance, what if you don't have it?

I do have a lot of appliances.  Best to check with me, I'm not opposed to buying a new appliance though, to add to my collection. We can discuss this.

Do you have a portfolio I can look at?

I do.  It is hosted by Pass Gallery - here's the link
