I'm a full-time photographer and content creator splitting my time between NC and TX. I've had a blog since 2009 and have cultivated an engaged following, some of whom have been following me since I was in high school. (I'm in my mid-30s now!) I've worked with brands like Red Bull, Yasso, Cuisinart, Suntory, City of Durham, and Marriot. I've been featured in the Austin Statesmen and Raleigh's News Observer, as well as Culturemap and WRAL.

I'm passionate about photography and story-telling and can't wait to connect with brands for creative collaborations!

When @heartofncweddings asked if I’d help them showcase some beautiful wedding gowns and jewelry for their 2023 annual fashion editorial, I was excited to say yes! I knew I’d have fun playing dress up but I didn’t know the experience would help heal a bit of my inner child. I had scoliosis surgery at 12, so I always kept my hair long and even as a twelve-year -old, I thought, welp, no backless dresses for you for the rest of your life! Even when I looked for wedding dresses for myself, I knew my hair would be down and to not even try on backless dress. The creative team of Heart of NC Weddings did not know these insecurities and carried on with their work. And unbeknownst to them, helped me see myself with kinder eyes 🙏🏼 .

Today’s the last day of service at @zenfishpokebar in Morrisville. I’ve been a big fan of Zenfish for five years now. I had just met the owner for a first friend date and was so charmed by her, that I was a little nervous about going to her restaurant. What if I didn’t like it? Spoiler alert, I loved it. And I grew to love her as an adopted sister. (Seriously, my mom considers Janet one of her kids now too.) I know this was such a hard decision to do, closing down the Morrisville location, but I’m also so grateful we still have Zenfish in Durham. I hope that if you’re a fan of Zenfish Morrisville, that you continue to support the two Durham locations! My favorite thing to order is the Courgeous bowl! Anyway. Who’s someone you’re feeling grateful to know and love? Tell me about them! #ncfood #poke #lindaeatsnc #ncblogger #919eats

Happy Lunar Year! Or, chúc mừng năm mới 🧧 🐱 🐰 ! Eating noodles on New Year Day can bring you good luck! If you’re looking for ramen, @isoisoramenraleigh opened less than a week ago and I loved my visit! Had their Iso Iso ramen and sampled @cheerwineanddine’s Black Tonkotsu ramen. Both made us very happy! Also liked their pork belly bao, calamari, and Biscoff bubble tea 🧋. I’m wishing you a delicious and prosperous new year, friend. Stay healthy. And don’t do any cleaning today 😉. #lunarnewyear #ramen #ncfood #raleighfood #ncblogger #919eats #lindaeatsnc

Weekday seafood feast at @redcrabdurham 🦐 ! I wanted to treat my sis @ncfoodbabynrealestate to a birthday lunch and this was her pick! It was our first time at Red Crab and we were very happy with the finger-licking sauces and fresh seafood. We even got to peek into their pristine kitchen to see them making magic. I’ve said this before and I’ll keep saying it. I loveeee making weekday lunches feel like celebrations. It’s such a feasible way to shake off monotony with joy. How do you shake things up in your everyday life, friend? #durm #lindaeatsnc #ncblogger #seafoodboil #919eats #durhamnc

Happy #nationalpastramiday, friend 🥪 ! I love how @mookiesnewyorkdeli does not skimp on their meat. First photo is the petite size. Last photo is the full! Which one would you order? #lindaeatsnc #919eats #ncfood #ncblogger

🎶 Late at night when all the world is sleeping, I stay up and think of porchetta. 🎵 Especially the one at @meatandbreadatx. What keeps you up at night, friend? #lindaeatsaustin #atxblogger #austinblogger #travelblogger #sandwichporn

@giorgiopizzabar, another @giorgiosgroup stunner, is opening on January 10! We got to have a sneak peek and dang it was the first thing I thought about when I woke up today 😅. You’ll find Italian appetizers, pizzas, pastas, and more on their menu. Sugarface and I were especially obsessed with the Asian Pear and Gorgonzola cheese pizza. Save this fun spot in your Raleigh IG collection! #lindaeatsnc #ncfood #raleighfood #ncblogger #visitraleigh #919eats

I celebrate 7 years of dating Sugarface today! I wrote this in my now defunct personal blog in January of 2015: We’ve known each other for years and I’ve always admired his curly hair. He keeps bottled green tea for me in his fridge even though he doesn’t like the taste. He has in just a month’s time met so many important people in my life. He rewards me with cupcakes for small victories and suggested I stop apologizing when I accidentally headbutt him, because he knows accidental headbutts and elbowing are just simply going to be an ever present thread in our story. I always leave him feeling drunk whether or not I had a sip of alcohol. Sometimes we cuddle together with one of our dogs (we have yet to get both dogs to cuddle at once) and I am feeling so content it almost makes me sad because it’s impossible to be anywhere forever no matter how happy I’m feeling. He once offered to hold my coat in a bar and I teased him. “What will I do if I get used to this kind of treatment and you’re not here to hold my jacket or spoil me?” “Linda, I don’t like your life philosophy sometimes.” “What do you mean?” “When something good is offered, you should enjoy it instead of worrying about not having it.” So here I am. Enjoying us and trying not to worry. //// 7 years later and I’m still enjoying us and trying not to worry ❤️.
