Welcome! My name is Serena, I am a photographer and food blogger. I live and work in Genoa (Italy) and I have a long tradition of cookery lovers in my family, like my mother ,who most of all inspired my love for cooking. I enjoy spending time in the kitchen, cooking and taking photographs, I find it very relaxing and creatively challenging. I like experimenting and elaborating on my own recipes and usually my aim is to reinvent traditional recipes to make them a little bit healthier,Β  without compromising on flavour.

Foodfulife is a creative space in which I share food and still life photography projects, but also various recipes and ideas.
