I am Kathleen, a family photographer. Eight years ago a person came in my life who was going to upset my life. 3,5kgs who would become in a split second the center of my life: my daughter. Because (or rather thanks to) it, we bought an SLR. What's more important than the chocolate spread around the mouth or her siestas in dad's arms? Soon my camera is an extension of my arm. And there, I discovered more than a way to keep some frozen memories of my little treasure. I found the ideal tool to tell us, our family, our moments, our everyday life. So I put everything down: Paris, my job in com, my comfortable everyday life. And I have been photographing families for four years now. I discovered an exciting job where the image is a great way to bring out the beauty, the connections, the love and that little something that every family has, and who is invisible to the naked eye. Above all, I found a way to touch people. My daily routine today is laughter at all the sessions, shoots of family love that I accompany from year to year, children that I see growing up. It's mostly the feeling that I'm doing something important. And that at my scale, I make people happier. Because through my images, they remember that they are united, loved and that they are a beautiful family.
Passionate about photography since my adolescence, I spent hours walking the streets of Paris with my reflex. But since I became a mom, what I love the most is capturing memories, moments of joy, the love of a family, Life, Real. Photography has always had an important place in my life. As a child, I watched my dad develop his photos himself. I have always had a great passion for photo albums, those of my grandparents, my parents. See and review again and again these photos that I know by heart. Discover those people in my family that I have not known, but who are part of me, of my history. Listen to my grandma tell me her story through her photos. For me, photography is a precious heritage, of inestimable value that my parents transmit to me and that I will transmit to my children. They are part of our family heritage.
Burgundian by origin, and after having lived a few years abroad (England; Ireland and even Thailand, for a guaranteed change of scenery), I returned to my homeland: Dijon, Burgundy, its wines, its roofs Burgundians... Aged 38, I worked fifteen years in marketing and innovation, and especially internationally. A few years ago, life shook me and opened my eyes to my need to move on. I wanted to give a truer meaning to my work; to create emotion, to leave a mark, to be more creative, and also to get closer to children. The photography seemed obvious to me! Since then, I no longer work, I live this passion, and I measure this chance that I have given myself!
In 2011, I grabbed my first SLR, on this new path I meet incredible, sometimes unexpected people who believe in me, trust me and unknowingly impose a new challenge on me: capturing the essence of the bond that unites them to make it a lasting memory. I become a professional photographer with a mission: to make you aware of the happiness of the present moment and to sublimate it. Every day, I learn, I listen, I watch and I start again. My studio around Besançon opens its doors in 2016, I travel around Franche-Comté and try to find always different places for original photos.
My name is Hélène, I am 41 years old, I am married and the mother of two intrepid boys. I live in the Jura an hour from Dijon and Besançon. I am a photographer specializing in all the family events that are important to you: weddings, family photos, pregnancy. I come from an artistic universe and I like to mix with my reports "on the spot" more worked moments, in love with the lines, the colors and the composition of an image. I put my experience of more than 15 years as a professional photographer at the service of your memories and your emotions. I worked 10 years in Switzerland alongside a photographer of international weddings and for the luxury industry. It was my sweetheart who brought me back to France, the same one who shapes our house day and night to create a universe that resembles us. The same one who made me with all his talent and passion for beautiful things a custom office where I enjoy coming to work every day. I love architecture, decoration, craftsmen's objects, plants as a whole… a bouquet of flowers or a hidden garden in a family home inspires me a lot. I like cinema which talks about the human being and these most fragile emotions, I like Art and I studied in a school of Fine Arts where I obtained a master's degree in contemporary art with a work on photography. I liked to develop my Black & White films in the darkroom that my father had left me when I was able to buy my first camera, I would like to have time to still photograph with my favorite camera, a Hasselblad. I love children's literature and even more read it with my children. I love Asia and its food ... I love to travel and I dream of having more time to take my little world on an adventure. One day we will go see the northern lights together, we promise! I like adventurers, photographs of the extreme. I easily rebel against the injustices of our society and I dream of a better world. I like my job because it weaves and “weaves” links between you, and that is priceless.
Following my artistic studies in art history, and in Fine Arts, I continued my artistic path with the CAP photographer obtained in 2010. I have been a professional photographer for already 9 years. I develop and maintain my experience in wedding and portrait photography by participating every year in different work training sessions with talented colleagues and trainers. My love of art has taken all forms over the years. It has grown, changed, evolved over time. I designed, created, cut, assembled, glued, modeled ... to finally photograph! Photography came into my life late because I was 25 when I started to enjoy it. Nevertheless, I love and appreciate museums, galleries, artists of all styles that make me dream. Eternal curious, I love to study, I am both Art and Sciences, color or black & white, technical and artistic, reserved but pleasant, complex but not that much…. And I found in photography the means of expression where I finally flourish completely: freeze the emotion, capture a look, share memories and be able to express myself. My philosophy: there is beauty in each of us, sincerely. The main thing in my eyes? Emotions, small tender gestures, exchanges of gaze, a curve of the bare shoulder, a wrinkle at the corners of the eyes, the wind in the hair, a frank or furtive embrace, a smile tinged with nostalgia or a great burst of laughter, children who are crazy… In short, life, the real one!
In Mag passion photography, there is Mag. A mom of almost 40 who has always loved taking pictures. A passionate and self-taught photographer, I like to share the intense moments in the life of others. Former Nurse: I practiced this profession for many years in specialized services such as neonatology, Emergencies or Réa. More than a job, it was a real vocation for me. Over time, my profession has evolved and I no longer saw myself practicing this profession under these conditions. I needed to refocus on human beings and at the dawn of my 40th birthday, I decided to take charge of my life so as not to regret anything. Indeed there is one thing that this profession will have taught me is to be aware of the fragility of life. Mom: And it was when I became a mother that I told myself that it was absolutely necessary to freeze these fleeting moments of happiness that life offers us. All these smiles were given, these faces and these eyes of astonished children, these amorous glances exchanged between two beings who sometimes do not tell each other enough that they love each other. This is why I chose to take pictures.

Passionate about my job, our meetings, your stories. The photo is never far away in my mind. All the beauty of the world around me continues to amaze me every day. IMMORTALIZE EVERY MOMENT - Your smiles, your tender and sincere looks, your bursts of laughter, you just as you are. This is what I want to transcribe through my images, it is so important. From your relationship until the birth of your child, then the evolution of your family, I want to be able to be there in these precious moments, and like a little guardian angel, immortalize these memories. Because these images are you, your heritage. It’s the exact representation of your family. It is in 10 years, around a Christmas meal, a family celebration or simply an evening at home, curled up on your sofa, that you will be shining with love, joy, of nostalgia, leafing through your family album reminding you what a good time it was. And that’s something essential to me.
