MEET YOUR HOSTS
Professional foodies, real-life friends. Brooke Lark & Lindsay Cotter have built 6-figure careers as food photographers and bloggers. Passionate about creating gorgeous, made-to-go viral content, the only thing they love more than a pretty bowl next to a naturally lit window is helping foodies learn the skills they need to build their own blogs.
When you arrive at the conference, don't forget to ask them about the Parable of the Pineapple. This funny inside joke has become the basis of our brand & we love to share the story.
