        “Aloha! I’m Renée, a thirty-something foodie, photographer, and single mommy residing in Sarasota, Florida – home of the #1 Beach in America, Siesta Key! From super trendy to sweet and simple, I never miss an opportunity to photograph the plates I create! I’m a die hard beach bum, with a love like no other for the ocean. I grew up on the east coast of Florida, then traveled north to Martha’s Vineyard, a small of island off Cape Cod, where I became a “wash-a-shore” year-round resident for 12 years. My time living on Martha’s Vineyard sparked my love of cooking and photography! I am a self-taught cook, photographer, and super mommy”

      She has various blogs: Indigo Tide Creations, as well as and a Blogspot.

From her official bio:


What are your 3 best attributes?
Loyal — I’m a great friend. Reliable — I do as I say. Loving — Big heart.

If you could be someone else for just one day, who would it be and why?
A fighter pilot, because I want to fly under a canopy really fast.

I love it when my date:
…holds my hand. Opens the door. Lets me order my own dinner!

I hate it when my date:
…talks over me. Texts during the date. Doesn’t properly introduce me to others.

Do you prefer a man who wants to be pursued or a man who pursues you and why?
There needs to be a nice balance with this. But initially, yes, I love when a man knows what he wants and he goes and gets it.
