Light flooded the frame, the kind of light you only find at sunrise and sunset. She was standing, barefoot, wearing the twirliest floral skirt in the Jardin des Tuileries. In her hands was the most curious camera: Rectangular and boxy in a Range Rover sort of way, two lenses, and she was peering down into […]

Hello, mes ami.e.s! I think now is a great time as ever to break down my art philosophy. Why do I do what I do? With the medium that I choose? What is my creative process? What can you, the client, expect during a session? With this introductory post, I want to break down what […]

It had rained all last week and was forecasted into the next. After monitoring the météo intently all Sunday afternoon, I finally made the call the meet Monday morning. Better to be out in a little drizzle than risk pouring rain later in the afternoon. Ironically, the rain petered out after lunch, but my little […]

Cecil is my Rolleicord. We’re still working out our relationship, but for the most part, there’s nothing more fun than a TLR. Cecil has character, and I love keeping him in my backpack for spontaneous strolls. Enjoy scenes from Parc Monceau, la Tour Eiffel, and a couple frames from Norman, my Nikon F100. A combination […]

The thick Burgundian fog sits low in the fields, rows and rows of vines quickly disappearing as the train speeds by. Sunlight cuts through in a gentle haze. As quickly as it comes, it dissipates, sunshine full-force through the windows, cutting harsh shadows across our faces. It is warm, dashing hope across the landscape dotted […]

She was standing, barefoot, in the Tuileries in a twirly, tea-length skirt. The sun was setting, and true to Paris, it was dreamy. I love good, flowing skirt, but what stopped my scroll was the camera in her hands. A funny-looking fellow, two lenses, held gently in her hands as she peered down into the […]

Lilla and I are old friends. We used to sit on her bedroom floor, dreaming big dreams, during the endless hot summer days. One we always shared was an escape to Paris. We called it the Paris Apartment. Beyond the fact that we’d have an apartment, I’m not sure we organised many other details. Paris […]

Coucou mes amis! Bonne année! There are some changes I will make this year to my blog. I want you to have the scoop! First, I will still be sharing client work. That’s one of the reasons this blog exists. I love sharing the stories of those who are in front of my camera! Secondly, […]

2019, you were an unexpected one. You were beautiful, joyful, heart-wrenching, terrifying, and filled with grace. You were everything I imagined, and many things not. Now that you are gently fading, it’s time to say goodbye — and merci! Some months ago, perhaps even at the beginning of the year, when it was bitter and grey, […]

A girl looks through a vintage Polaroid camera while standing in front of a classic, orange creamsicle Volkswagon van at the Place des Vosges in Paris.

I so enjoyed doing this Paris portrait session at one of my favorite Eiffel Tower locations for this INCREDIBLE family I have had the pleasure of knowing in Paris. The kids were SO good despite the fact that it was FREEZING. Everyone looked lovely; outfits were on point; and yes, there was candy afterwards. What […]
