Constance Higley has found herself in a slight career change, focusing more on what's going to be on camera these days than being behind it. A wedding photographer turned food photographer turned go-for-it gourmand, Higley uses the kitchen of her 1930s-era Fairview Place home for everything: from prepping and baking to setting the scene and lighting a shot. She took time out of a busy schedule that includes shooting for Valley chefs and cooking for magazine shoots to take us on a tour and share an easy dessert (or breakfast!) recipe — just in time for all of those holiday parties.
