Self-portrait

 

About

I always resisted becoming a photographer.

My artistic family infused in me the idea of seeing the world through a frame at a young age. I started taking photographs as a teen, but always refused that title, even throughout art school.

After studying Fine Arts and Political Sciences in France and Finland, I left my cherished hometown of Paris for New York in 2009.

My work has been featured in solo and group shows in France, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It is part of the City of Strasbourg's public collection (France). I have been invited for various residencies in France and the U.S., as well as to present my creative process at The New School-Parsons in New York.

In 2016, I went a little further West and relocated to Los Angeles with my husband Robby Sinclair. It is only then that I embraced commercial photography as a career.

Since then, I have had the privilege to work with local and international brands. I am immensely grateful to spend my days working in the pursuit of beauty with companies and people that I love. As a freelance photographer, I specialize in lifestyle, travel, portraiture, food, and product.

When I am not traveling for work, I call Los Angeles home.
