We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.

I am a boy mama of two cutie pies under the age of 3, and wife to the best dad and husband. Our daily life is filled with lots of loud noises, laughter, trips to the Jardin des Plantes, some occasional toddler tantrums, long breastfeeding sessions, and books.

I am here to help you. My purpose is to tell your family's unique story in a way that is authentic, organic, and meaningful. I balance documentary photography with natural posing. Capturing moments in both digital and film cameras. This results in an image collection that is filled with joy and connection. Yet with gorgeous skin tones and a timeless aesthetic because of the refined look of film. I am based in Toulouse, and I am available for family and baby sessions throughout France, Europe, and UK. 

The days with young children go by so fast! If you are anything like me, you love being a a mom, and you want to document all these early months and years as a way to freeze this stage of your life.

    GIVING BACK

    1 SESSION = 10 CHILDREN'S BOOKS

    MY STORY

    Before becoming a professional documentary family photographer, I worked on international educational projects at organizations like the World Bank, Save the Children, and Unesco. With training in child psychology and education from the universities of Harvard, Paris, and Oxford, I developed a true passion for supporting vulnerable families with young children.

    If you are anything like me, you believe in the importance of the early years when it comes to a child's brain development. And that books and good early literacy practices are key to helping young children to reach their full developmental potential. 

    That's why when you book a family, maternity, or baby session with me, you are automatically helping me to help others. 

    INQUIRE

    For every session booked, I donate a set of children's books to vulnerable families with young children.
