Vani Hari, otherwise known as ‘The Food Babe’, is a revolutionary food activist and New York Times best-selling author. She was named one of the ‘30 Most Influential People on the Internet’ by Time magazine. A reformed sugar addict, soda drinking, fast food eater, Vani went from starting a food blog in 2011, documenting her own journey to health, to calling the Big Food industry to task, backed by her ‘Food Babe Army’ of over a million followers. She’s on a mission for truth and transparency from the food industry and those who regulate it, so that we can become our own nutritional advocates.
Arriving at Vani’s home took our breath away as we slowly peeked in. It’s both comfy and awe-inspiring with a sharp design aesthetic, making it actually difficult to choose which incredible location to focus on. That’s a good problem. And we worked with the precision of a Swiss clock, scheduling the shoot while her young daughter slept. And when she awoke? That’s a wrap. It was family time now — as it should be.
