About Me

You've poured a lot of time, energy, and knowledge into creating your nutrient-packed, delicous recipes, but you're struggling to capture them in photos. 

Your photos feel boring, uninteresting, or lacking that "it" factor. 

You don't want to hire a professional photographer every time you want to share your recipes with your audience. You need someone to guide you step-by-step with encouragement and excitement! 

That's exactly what I do!

I'm Jessica Furniss of Spiffy Eats & giggle water, and my passion is helping dietitians and nutritionists attract their dream clients one vibrant photo at a time. 

I've been taking pictures of food since 2015. I've spent years learning the ins & outs of what makes healthy food look irresistable. And I love sharing that wisdom with others.

Through my tutorials, workshops, and courses, I give dietitians & nutritionists insight into intuitive food photography, so they can capture beautiful photos, attract their dream clients, and really enjoy the process!

I was born in Mississippi, raised in Baton Rouge, LA and Greenville, SC and now Birmingham, AL is where I call home. I listen to Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra every day. In college I rode my bike everywhere and studied biology with a minor in Nutrition.

I believe in living a balanced life mentally, emotionally, and physically (speaking of physically, I gained 3 fitness certifications over the years). I spent a year as a personal trainer, before eventually shifting my focus towards healthy food. I started out as a food blogger before eventually launching my business full-time in December of 2017. 

I've done one-on-one lessons, interviewed leading professionals, and hosted multiple food photography workshop! I'm honestly living my dream!

I love story telling, especially when the stories involve family recipes.

The beach is my favorite place on earth, I adore weekend mimosas, my dog is my best friend, and I'm slightly obsessed with creating Insta stories. 

I use my platform to speak openly about my struggle with anxiety, and I'm so happy to see the shift in our society towards talking about mental illness. 

Community, authenticity, and FREEDOM have become what I value most in life.
