Ad Week says: "The New York-based food stylist Melina Hammer does it all: cooking, styling, photography." She is also a writer and recipe developer, and, in all her work is known for creating the feel of "authenticity." She sources a wide range of objects to tell her stories: from family heirlooms, to vintage ceramics flown from France, to contemporary pieces made by friends and peers, to craggy and ancient ones found in Asia and India. These artifacts further the unique stories Melina weaves together.
Melina has worked with editorial and ad clients for over a decade, bringing out the best textures and gesture in food to trigger all the involuntary belly grumbles and drool. This playful, considered approach fuels her exploration, as seen in her daily Instagram posts. When she isn't making something delicious and capturing it on set for the likes of The New York Times, Ogilvy, Eating Well, Blue Apron, or Food52, she loves to wander the forest and forage wild food.
Liz Peters is a stylist living in the South Bronx of New York City. She specializes in stills and props styling with a particular love of soft goods. She can't resist colorful prints and thoughtful details that make a piece unique.
She was born in Minneapolis where she gained a love for art and craft within a community atmosphere. She has a degree in Fiber Arts and Art History with particular interests in print design and traditional crafts including knitting, quilting, and other hand sewing crafts.
Liz has a love for all things old, including 1950s novelty printed clothing, antique poodle figurines, and kitschy velvet paintings. She loves to find the story in something unique and bring life into things often overlooked. She enjoys knitting on a daily basis, spending time with her husband and two cats, and has recently added decorating cupcakes to her list of weekly activities.
Celine has been styling for photo-shoots, commercials, and music videos in New York City since January 2002 (feel free to ask her about her previous lives in England and LA).
She is both an on-figure fashion stylist (her first love) and a still-life stylist. Both require a knowledge of fashion and an eye for design, and both benefit from her keen organizational skills. When it comes to on-figure, Celine makes it a point to keep up with fashion week each season to keep educated on the trends and new designers. When it comes to still-life, she is a crafty perfectionist; an engineer of accessories. With an eye for precision and beauty, and a mind for making it happen (and fast!), she understands the relationship between the object on set and the view of the camera lens.
On the job, Celine not only brings her creative prowess, but also runs a tight ship. With 15 years of experience under her belt, she knows how to be resourceful, and deliver great creative options to please everyone, all while remaining in budget. On set, she has a watchful eye for details, making sure that each take or shot is perfect, and hitting the desired shot count by the end of the day.
Jessica Agullo is a NYC based stylist with many years of experience comfortable wearing a wide assortment of stylist "hats".
From off figure fashion and accessories, to home goods, beds, props and sets, cosmetic smears and raw food styling, to fast and precise e-commerce, she enjoys switching it up and doing it all.
Jessica thinks of styling as sculpture or painting using form, color, light, texture and negative space. Whether the job involves collaborating with a team of creative directors and photographers to come up with fresh concepts and develop new ideas, or selecting props & backgrounds, or streamlining workflow for fast paced e-commerce jobs, Jessica does it all and likes nothing more than to rise to a creative challenge at hand as part of a team making things happen on set.
Off set Jessica has developed a workshop course in the techniques of e-commerce off figure fashion that she teaches part time at Fashion Institute of Technology.

Jillian discovered her early love of photography as a teenager, and began photo assisting in NYC soon after graduating high school. Eventually heading to San Francisco and receiving a BFA in Photography, she has continually explored her passion for photography - sometimes as a photographer, sometimes as an artist, sometimes as an art advocate in the non profit world, and currently flexes her interests as a soft-goods stylist.
Styling gives Jillian the opportunity to do what she loves most - work with her hands and collaborate with a creative team. Jillian loves dogs, mango salsa, huge landscapes, strong coffee, and a killer soundtrack.
With fifteen years experience as both a portrait and commercial photographer, the transition to styling has happened naturally over the last five years.
While she still professionally photographs her favorite subjects - cats and dogs - her knowledge for styling translates across both fields helping create a harmony on set, along with a beautiful final image. With a focus on home soft goods and textiles, she has been fortunate to collaborate with many talented clients, helping to create strong and memorable images and showrooms.

Raised by a patternmaker, and encouraged to make art from a young age, styling and art directing came naturally to her after graduating from Pratt Institute in Fine Art Painting and Fashion Design at FIT.
It's the playfulness of the make-believe, problem solving for the client and the constant balance for perfection and the perfect imperfection in styling which make her tick.
Her interests include fashion design, ceramics, oil painting and interior styling.
