Lucy Schaeffer

Lucy Schaeffer was a painter and printmaker before discovering she preferred photography for telling stories. Five years as a photo editor at Food & Wine magazine trained her eye to see the yummiest aspects of every dish and bring that out in every food shot. Lucy is just as comfortable shooting kids in muddy puddles as she is lighting a highly technical drink shot in the studio. She sees both as part of the same whole - showing life well lived. Her photography captures real moments full of boldness, whimsy, and color. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Brooklyn, NY.
