Artist Statement I photograph people. With their many unique expressions and beautiful emotions. I’m drawn to the elegant and timeless feel of black & white photos and I have a strong passion for film photography. I absolutely adore the organic nature of film. I put my heart and soul into every photograph. My goal is to capture those perfect fleeting moments and make them timeless. When I feel a connection with my subject, that’s when I shoot. Those are the moments that are special, the moments that connect my viewer to my subject.
Paris & Los Angeles I’m an American expat living in France. I was born & raised in sunny L.A. I lived there my entire life – until 2007, when I moved to Paris for the love of my Frenchman. Paris has a magical ambiance that constantly inspires me as an artist. Of course, j’ai deux amours – Paris & California. I visit Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area as often as possible for photo shoots with my established clientèle and for weddings.
Film or Digital You have the option of choosing film or digital or both.
Hand Painted Photographs I custom print my b&w film photographs on gelatin silver paper, hand painting selected photos to express and invoke emotion. I enjoy working with soft, pastel oil paints to create a whimsical and romantic feel. I create this dreamy effect by applying photo oil paints directly onto a custom printed silver photograph. The paint colors and saturation depend on the subject matter and mood of each individual image. Every hand painted photograph is an original one of a kind, no two are exactly the same.
This blog is where you can see photos from my recent engagement & portrait sessions, weddings and my personal work. I will occasionally share photos of Paris, daily life in France and the lovely French villages and countryside that charm and inspire me. I’m also mom, so I will frequently post photos of my sweet little boy, Henry.
