Megan Von Schonhoff is a food, beverage, and lifestyle photographer based in the Chicagoland area. Her work embodies a homegrown midwest approach with a fresh twist. The fundamentals of Megan's success are a strong combination of vision, adaptability, teamwork and she thrives on the unique challenges each project brings.

Her inspiration is found through chance encounters, and life's perfectly imperfect moments. Megan enjoys the finer things in life like spicy pickles, a bucket of coffee and underdog roadside BBQ. Peanut butter is her preferred food group. When not taking photos you can find her somewhere in mountainous regions not at all related to the midwest and spending quality time with her husband, two cupcakes Ben and Indie and a Dachshund mix with impressive selective hearing skills.

Publications in Martha Stewart,, The Wine Buying Guide, Cookstr, WCIU-TV, Fox Good Day Chicago, Windy City Live, PopSugar, Flavors Magazine and The Herald Palladium.  Also RecipeLion series of cookbooks through St. Martin's Griffin with Food Network Star Adia Gundry.
