About Sarah Kenney
I began my photography journey as a way to capture the memories that were being cultivated as my family moved from one location to another. Born in the deep south of Louisiana to a Cajun family and then whisked around the globe as a child with my military based family, I learned from an early age that cultural diversity was always around me.
Watching and following my Cajun grandmother’s southern maid, Rose, in her Louisiana kitchen prepare the family meals was where I could usually be found during my summers as a child. Rose was a fascinating woman and cook and was probably the first to plant the seed for my growing interest in food, culture, and story telling.
Years later, attending college in New York City at N.Y.U., I was wonderfully immersed in the cultural diversity of so many people and along with that comes the fabulous discovery of each culture’s food and family stories. Thus, the desire to photograph these encounters originated.
From living in Japan with my own family and attending an all-Japanese school with my children, to traveling the hills of Wales or Ireland, our family of four have eaten our way through parts of Asia, Europe, and many regions of the U.S.
Recently, I was named one of Babble’s “Top 100 Mom Food Bloggers”. My photography is described as “rustic” and “simplistic”. I thoroughly enjoy tying together my cooking, travel, and family stories together to delight readers who visit my blog, “Thyme”.
I have been featured in Honest Cooking Magazine, The Kitchn, Gourmet, Yummly, Food News Journal, The Nest, and am a regular contributor to Tastespotting, FoodGawker, and Tasteologie.
