Work with me

Hi, I’m Maria Do creator, professional photographer, and food whisperer behind Murmurs of Ricotta!

I started my cooking blog Murmurs of Ricotta as a creative outlet to heal, and today, my childhood dream of “doing food for real” has never been more tangible.

Murmurs of Ricotta is where I share my inspired and meticulously-crafted recipes for the best homemade food! I encourage intentionality, creativity, and adventure by incorporating color, flavor, and texture with every meal! If these values align with you or your brand, I would love to work with you!

I believe when you cook with care, your food breaks sensory boundaries – taste, touch, smell, sight, and sound…when your food “murmurs” back at you!

Ways we can work together


Does your service or product offer benefits that the Murmurs audience would love? I feature products and services across my platforms with beautifully styled photography for each collaboration. I work one-on-one with your brand to curate content for this blog, Instagram and Pinterest. Short and long-term sponsorships are available.


With 7 years of professional food styling and photography experience, I offer photography services for brands that need a carefully crafted look for their products. I work with you to create the perfect setting for your product (food or service) and deliver high-res, edited files based on your needs.


Need a fresh take for your food or service brand? I offer robust product testing and meticulous recipe development – I take this process seriously in order to craft detailed, enjoyable recipes for your audience. We will work together to align with your needs and come up with content that is unique to your brand!

Let’s work together!
