About Me

Kirsten Gilliam is a native Houstonian who began her journey in 2012.

Photography was a hobby for Kirsten until 2013 when she moved to Brooklyn. During her time in New York she freelanced for Macy's, various blogs, and online magazines while working full-time as a server, and ultimately event manager, for the NoMad hotel. She returned to Houston in early 2015 and launched her own photography business in 2016. Her industry focused work has taken her all over the country traveling with chefs and shooting events. In addition to eating and drinking for fun, she loves to spend her spare time traveling the world and documenting her adventures.
