Meet the Team
Please welcome Heidi to the Foodie Shots team
In March 2021 we made the decision to look for a little help in terms of handling the increasing communications and administration section of the business. It had been something we’d been wanting to introduce for a few months, however trying to find the right person was becoming a challenge. Yes, there are plenty of VAs and copywriters out there who could help, and I have given a few jobs to some. What I was finding though, was that they lacked the manic passion for food. That addictive energy people get when they are alive because of food.
Heidi and I had known each other for a little while but it wasnt until recently I understood her passion. She had hinted she had done some copywriting in the past and that this was what she’d studied.
Heidi was actually introduced to me as a pet sitter, and at the end of her stay she had left a beautiful array of gourmet foods for our return. Her level of hospitality and attention to detail was amazing.
So the day came when I had tasks up to my eyeballs and I reached out to her. Funnily ennough, she was on a beach looking at a coffee tour. I was convinced.
Better still, she was so excited at the idea of working with a food photograper, someone who is constantly immersed in the food industry.
I am looking forward to growing and building Foodie Shots with Heidi’s help. Have a read about her below, and sing out to either of us to see how Foodie Shots can help your foodie business grow.
So, take a read below and meet our wordsmith extraordinaire, Heidi.
Hi, I’m Heidi
Probably the most important things to know about me are that I love furry creatures, food, and dad jokes. If you also like one of these three things, we will be firm friends.
On a professional level, I studied communications and events way back in the mid 2000s, but have also been a word-nerd since birth. Yep, I was that girl reading everywhere she went. I have kept up my writing with sporadic blogging and editing for friends and colleagues. I also have over ten years in hospitality and retail, so I know the long hours and incredible dedication that goes into developing amazing products…and eating others’ yummy creations.
Working with Kat is an amalgamation of a few goals. To learn from experts and meet local business leaders, but also (and secretly the most important) have an excuse to talk about food all day. Just like Kat, I see food as emotional. I love that providing food can give sustenance for both the body and the soul. That just the smell of bread baking can take you back to a moment or memory of home and love.
I’m so excited to help Kat take Foodie Shots to the next level, and I know with our shared enthusiasm it’s going to be an incredible and delicious ride!
