Leighann Lockwood is a mid-twenty-something currently living in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago.  She has a degree in Art History and Photography from York University in Toronto that she is desperately trying to be sure doesn’t go to waste.  Currently, Leighann is a product photographer and assistant for a boutique wholesaler on Jeweler’s Row.

Leighann worked at a Dairy Queen in high school and at the Absinthe Pub and Coffeeshop in university, both age-appropriate vice purveyors where she excelled in making her friends’ orders the envy of the counter.  An accidental vegetarian at times, she does not know how to cook meat – yet.

Leighann likes the little things and macro photography.


Food is an amazing product, so versatile and wholesome.  It is indulgence and survival.  Food has the ability to excite all the senses – the sight of melted oozing cheese, the sound of sizzling bacon in a pan, the texture of a crusty bread loaf, the scent of a fresh pineapple – all interacting to enhance the flavor and what occurs within ones mouth.

I am interested in the ephemeral qualities of food.  Fresh will spoil.  Delicious will be devoured.  Photography allows you to have your cake and eat it too.

In addition to the final product, I am also interested in the process work.  Consider this space the kitchen counter before the white tablecloth of the main dining room.  Process is progress – learning how to cook, prepare, and feed while learning how to better light, style, and document it all.

I want to know what makes you drool.

      That’s awesome, Meghan, thanks for sharing! I love being able to glimpse into the details of tiny things you don’t normally get to notice (because of the tiny). Another friend of mine shared the following link with me a couple months ago : EYEBALLS!!
