Here is a little bio about Elsy:
Elsy Dinvil was born in Jeremie, Haiti. She started cooking at an early age at her mother’s side. She loved playing with food, which led her to pursue trainings in the food industry. She graduated from Ecole Hôtelière d’Haiti, one of the most prestigious culinary schools in Haiti and later got a full scholarship to study Food Science Technology at Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon. A six-year struggle with food allergies led her to a greater understanding of the mystery of food and its impact on the body. Her passion is to help orient people to eating fresh unprocessed food. Currently, she is focusing on developing her line of allergen-free Creole Me Up sauces and condiments. She holds various Haitian food pop ups during the year, cooks alongside renowned chefs in town, and teaches Haitian cooking classes around Portland, Oregon where she presently lives.
She had contacted us to take headshots for her, and we were honored! We had lots of fun walking around downtown Hillsboro, taking her photos. She’s not only a cook but she is a amazing clothing designer, she made her own dress!
We hope you enjoy the photos from this session. Elsy we are so proud of you!!
