Foodelia Food Photography Awards

Kaleena Lindsay Photography wins the Third Foodelia Food Photography Awards!!  Kaleena Lindsay Photography is the genius behind all of The Wellness Soldier’s food photography.

My beautiful wife Kaleena has done all the amazing photography/art work for the entire website and I am so proud of her!  If it were not for her art work, our website would just be a bunch of words with ugly iPad photos to look at.

I love saying to her “Hey baby, you’re an Internationally Published and Multi Award Winning Food Photographer!!” As the Canadian Military Family Magazine is published internationally where we head the “Galley” Section.  Along with the Foodelia Food Photography Awards, we have also won the Lift Canadian Cannabis Awards for Top Blog/Author.

Foodelia is an international contest for food photography.  Foodelia looks for photographers who combine stunning quality and style of imagery.  Recent work of Foodelia’s members is intended to provide an ongoing inspiration and also a snapshot of the most innovative photographic work being produced in the food photography world.

The pictures taken for this round were from a No-Bake Chocolate Avocado Mousse Cake we created for the Peace Naturals Project as well as the steak dish in which we created for our Valentines Day Veterans Dinner.
