I am a 2020 approved member of the Family Photojournalist Association and the Lifestyle Photographers Association. I work part-time with Bella Baby Photography at a regional hospital capturing the first hours of a baby's life. I am originally from Perth, Western Australia. I currently live just outside of Washington D.C. with my husband and two children (and I miss living by the ocean). I have lived in many different places -- that's the short story. In 2015, when my children were finally out of diapers, I took a breath and picked up my husband's Nikon D90 and began, slowly, teaching myself manual photography. I fell in love and dived right in. My day job is development and grant-writing for non-profit organizations. I have married these two professions into Positive Light, a photography service for non-profits to help capture their clients with dignity, in a 'positive light'. I believe family lifestyle photography should be available to everyone, not just those who like to wear coordinated designer outfits and have a lot of wall space. I am always learning and trying to improve my technical skills. I am extremely excited to be taking part in the three-month program Quietly Loud, lead by Felicia Chang and Kristine Nyborg. I use a Nikon D810 and 35mm1.4, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8, and 105mm F2.
I've contemplated long and hard every single day since I've picked up a camera about why I do what I do and what motivates me. I think about what it means to me and about what it means to other people. There are a few reasons, some have changed, some haven't. The few that drives them all are human connection, relationships, and vulnerability. I feel I have a responsibility to photograph present reality for the sake of human history and future nostalgia. It is very easy for me to connect with people, whether it be my clients or a stranger on the street. I love knowing that through my chosen medium I am able to gain new perspectives of this life, one person at a time. I feel honored and blessed to be able to wake up every morning and tell stories through photographs.
After graduating from nursing school, I spent two years working in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at the prestigious Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Feeling a strong call and desire to help others, in June 2007 I left my job in Philadelphia. I took my first trip across the Atlantic Ocean and spent a year volunteering as a nurse in Monrovia, Liberia, onboard the world's largest non-governmental hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, with the medical charity, Mercy Ships. While in Liberia, I began writing about my experiences for several newspapers and magazines in the Philadelphia area. The editors needed images to illustrate my stories, so I ordered my first DSLR camera and began learning how to use it. I quickly realized the power and significance of an image. A single image could transcend distance, time, and situation, to communicate a thought, feeling, or emotion, that was universally recognized in the human experience.
I was born in France in 1988 in the beautiful region of Burgundy. For three years now, I have been living in the USA. Love brought me here and makes my life better and better every day. I have been taking pictures since I was a kid. I have started taking professional pictures ten years ago using my camera to tell stories with a journalism aspect. I now want to use my knowledge to photograph your family with my unique point of view on photography. Your family is a story and my job is to describe it through my photos. As a photojournalist, I have won many international photo competitions, and have been selected for many collective exhibitions in Paris, Great Britain, and Finland. My personal work is an important part of my photography skills.
