Alice Gao is one of the most talented food and lifestyle photographers out of New York City. Her food photography is absolutely stunning- you know the ol’ instagram my coffee from above shot? We’re all just trying to live up to Alice’s famous coffees!

She not only has the coffee shot down, but specializes in interiors and beautiful still-lifes as well. Some of my favorite shots are of her peonies- she manages to capture every ounce of beauty in the flower. We’re just obsessed with her work and can confidently say, we’re not alone!


If you don’t already, you can follow Alice on her blog to keep up with her projects and daily shots of inspiration. Her Instagram is also epic. Anybody out there an Alice fan? I mean, how can you not be?
