“While traveling the world and looking for the best ingredients, we found that many producers who care about quality also care about sustainability. We discovered that by choosing the best ingredients we had reduced our carbon footprint. It was a revelation. A few more changes, and we cut our carbon footprint in half! Then we realized that if everyone did this, it would have a big effect on climate change. Little changes add up to something big. We could save the world, one cookie at a time.”

‘So we decided to share this in a blog. The mission is to promote sustainability by showing readers how they can instantly reduce their carbon footprint by choosing foods that also taste better. The blog promotes this idea through posts about stocking the pantry with the best ingredients, shopping local, eating food in season, and being inspired by discoveries while traveling.  We believe we can all make a big change, just by making little changes, because little things matter.”


No Affiliates Statement

We call this our “no affiliates” statement because we accept no advertising, have no affiliates and accept no payment. We are not paid to mention brands – we just love buying the best, sharing that information and saving the planet at the same time. The effort put into writing and photographing the blog is solely based on our dedication to the cause.


“…They were also prompt and had already scouted out the location prior to our arrival. Tony was very efficient with the time he spent taking pictures at certain scenes. He was fast at manually changing his camera settings with each light change so you wouldn’t have to hold a position for long. He is also a great director and knows what looks well in his photos; I really appreciated his patience with us. Lisa is the secondary photographer that snaps photos from different angles when you are focused on Tony. She coordinates with Tony by helping find gorgeous background shots. Our photos came out really beautiful and I would highly recommend this photography service to all.”

“amazing to work with. Amir & I enjoyed our engagement shoot a lot! It was very easy to communicate with them. They even helped us pick a place which was dog friendly. We loved our pictures. We got so many compliments. “


“Everyone in our family was thrilled by the extraordinarily imaginative photographs that were created for us by Tony Fitzgerald Photography. Not only was the photography technically skillful, but the images revealed a nuanced and creative use of natural light and color. Scenes demanding exact timing were also shot at the perfect second, capturing the most dynamic moments possible. This duo team of Tony Fitzgerald and Lisa LeCoump are not only highly capable professionals, but extraordinary artists in their approach to capturing the subtle, gentle feelings and joyful exuberance in each moment of time. I am planning to use Tony Fitzgerald Photography in the near future for several more special events. I would highly recommend them to anyone, but especially for unusual weddings and events demanding the finest possible documentation.”
