Teri-Ann Carty

    Teri-Ann is a food photographer, recipe developer and yoga teacher who lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Teri-Ann adopted a vegan lifestyle 9 years ago soon after she got sober and broke free from a debilitating alcohol and drug addiction. She wanted to cleanse her body from the inside out and choosing a plant-based diet was one of the ways she achieved that. She has travelled the world, become a yoga teacher and changed her life.

    Teri-Ann now spends most of her days developing recipes, styling dishes, and shooting photographs for numerous clients and also for herself as she builds her personal brand. Her passion is being behind the camera which is always within arms reach but she also teaches yoga in Toronto and can’t wait until she can start offering yoga and vegan retreats again in far-away places. She is dreaming of the time that she and her mister can travel the world again.

    Currently Working On:

    • Writing as a means of expression
    • Photography
    • Building my food photography business
    • Building my recipe library for a future cookbook

    • Currently I am working on all things writing. I started taking a creative writing course during the pandemic and it has helped me in a ton of ways. It has helped me flush out new ideas, delve into old patterns and given me a place to go that is all mine.
      I am always working on my craft behind the lens and in the kitchen. Photography and cooking are two of my greatest passions and where I feel most at home.
      I am always ALWAYS working on my sobriety and helping others stay sober as well.

    A Quote I Live By:
