Hey there, I am Kankana Saxena, a food & lifestyle photographer, food stylist and author of my cookbook – Taste of Eastern India.

It all started with my blog Playful Cooking, which made me enter into a whole new world. What started as a passion soon turned into a career! I enjoy capturing the beauty of food, creating a mood, and telling a story with colors and contrast. I am a lover of natural light and yet to explore the world of artificial lights.

I am currently living in California Bay Area, USA with my husband and our 4-year old toddler. I work with several food brands and websites for creating recipes and photographing food. It’s been an amazing journey so far!
