Recipe Development + Brand Ambassadorship

I am a professional food blogger, and develop recipes for my blog on a weekly basis. I also have experience working with brands to develop recipes based on/inspired by a specific product.

Food + Drink Photography

I am a self-taught photographer with experience photographing menu items for restaurant websites/social media, food-related products for brands, food items for publication and/or PR, and recipes for cookbooks.

Food + Drink Writing

With an extensive knowledge of Chicago’s dining scene acquired through years of covering the city's culinary landscape, I consider myself an expert in the field, and enjoy having a finger on the pulse of current and exciting food and drink trends.

I am a Chicago-based food and drink writer, photographer, and blogger.

Please visit my “Photography” and “Writing” portfolios for an in-depth look at my best work!

As you will see, my written work has appeared in a variety of publications, including Michigan Avenue Magazine, Tasting Table, Thrillist, and Best Friends For Frosting, as well as my personal food blog, Kailley’s Kitchen. My photography and recipe-based work has been featured in Bon Appetit, Food & WineBuzzFeed, Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, & many more.

Suffice it to say, I love food! And I love what I do for a living, which is why my work is as much a career as it is a passion project. As a freelancer, I’m always looking to take on new jobs, meet new people, and continue to grow as a writer, photographer, and baker.

I’m available for hire and would love to work with you!
