Everytime I look at these childhood pictures, I am overwhelmed with emotion.
My parents and baby me. The bond between my little sister and I. Time flying by at birthdays. Family gatherings every summer with five generations and how lucky I am to have known my great-great grandmother.

These pictures tell my story.

Photography has always been a part of me...

I grew up between the garrigue of southern France and the beaches of Brittany. As a kid, I had a toy camera that I brought everywhere (picture below!). When I was a teenager, my Dad, who was and still is into photography, offered me my first real camera. I fell in love with photography.

After passing a languages degree, I moved back to the South of France, to the French Riviera. Passionate about all media, I worked for several years in a multimedia company. I learned a lot about professional photography, digital retouching and video editing there.

I developed my skills in these fields by going to the United States, precisely to New York City. Living in the heart of Brooklyn was a crazy adventure!

My love for travel brought me to wonderful and varied destinations including such as Thaïland, Italy, the Caribbean, Spain, Kenya and Tanzania, Greece, Canada and much more. Through these travels, I grew my talent and technique while meeting new people and discovering fascinating cultures.

In 2012, I graduated from the New York Film Academy and moved to beautiful Paris. I guess I was a little reckless because I decided I was ready to start my own photography company for people from all over the World. I'm a lifelong romantic, so I love capturing family events such as weddings, engagements or pregnancies as well as corporate events with strong collaboration and friendship between coworkers.

I decided to go back to my Provence roots in 2015 and moved back to Avignon, where I was born. I now offer my services of freelance photographer in Provence as well as in Paris where I travel weekly.

Now that you know me a little better, I'd love you to tell me about you...

Little things that make me happy...

My Man ❤️, chocolate, rock music, sunsets, rose gold, going to the movies, fireplaces, rollercoasters, travelling, musicals, vanilla, DIY and crafts, turquoise color, speaking English, instagram, dogs, the smell of mimosa and orange blossom, my nephews and my niece, making "myself pretty", flying on planes, amusement parks, baking TV shows, scented candles, family and friends dinners, lists and crossing things off them, my cup of coffee (that I never finish), my apartment, discovering new cultures and meeting people from all over the world, raspberries, “The Walking Dead” “Grey's Anatomy” “The Big Bang Theory” and many other TV shows, making people happy, salted butter (my Brittany roots), the Disney universe and parks, herbes de Provence and mediterranean cuisine, New York City, board games, Italy and Greece (I'm a quarter Greek and proud of my last name!), working on my Mac, being a tourist in my own town, singing along songs (completely out of tune but I don't care), massages after a long day of work, music festivals and concerts, speaking and writing (look, I can't stop!)...
