Meghan Klein Team Photographer
Natural light, unexpected moments and storytelling are what excite me. Nothing makes me happier than photographing couples in love, growing families and aesthetic environments. I love telling a story with my lens!
Deborah Thompson Food Contributor
Debs is a professional chef with a Cordon Bleu diploma and a crazy love for simple but impressive recipes made with seasonal ingredients. She used to be a banker but ran away to London to live the dream of going to cooking school. Ten years, six restaurants and far too many burns later, she started Salted Mint to share her recipes, pass on skills and nurture a budding love for photography.
Deb's food and cooking can best be described as a modern style with a nod to the classics. Global flavours created with seasonal, local produce and a west coast meets English country aesthetic. And it all has a hard base line of “peasant simplicity” running through it.
