hello! my name is nicola
and i am a freelance photographer, graphic designer, retoucher and production assistant based in san francisco, CA.
currently, i'm co-writing, photographing and designing my mother's cookbook, heritage: celebrating family recipes - in part an homage to my family's italian roots, and also a love letter to the plants & herbs that provide us with sustenance and healing.
when i'm not behind a camera or computer, you'll usually find me making jewelry, refurbishing skateboards, cooking without recipes, tending to my forest of indoor plants, riding my bike or making chocolate from scratch.
my work can be found here (in print): edible sf, ambrosia magazine, drift magazine, wine & spirits magazine
some of my clients include: equator coffee, green heart foods, rooted angel, love fest fibers, bay area made, omie box, pour moi beauty, latitude 15, yerba buena tea company, SKI charities, michael musika
