Having grown up in the same small Central Florida town, Erica and Lara have been friends for over 20 years. First meeting on a weekend bowling league as teens, college life took them down their own paths, but life brought them back together in 2006 and they’ve remained close ever since. Inspired by the hobby food blog Erica started in 2014, Lara soon followed suit and they both fell head over heels in love with all things food photography. After 4 years of practice and honing their skills separately, they launched Fork & Lens Studio in 2018, where they bring their unique visions and talents together to share with the visually hungry world.


Erica is a self-taught home chef and recipe developer, food stylist & photographer, blogger, and media influencer. While she loves all the aspects of blogging, styling and photography are her true joy. She and her husband, Abel, share their recipe triumphs on their blog, The Crumby Kitchen. The blog was started in 2014 as a hobby, but became Erica’s full time gig when she left her bakery management career of 18 years in 2017.

Her work has been featured on Buzzfeed,, Huffington Post, The Feed Feed, and in Southern Living Magazine.

Erica is also a cookbook author, having published her first book The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook For Two in June 2018.

When she’s not cooking or baking, you can find her at Disney World, playing her favorite video games with Abe, cuddling her Mini Aussie, Vader, or searching for inspiration by binge-watching her favorite Food Network shows.
