How did I become a photographer?
I fell in love with photography about 8 years ago, but at this time, I didn’t know that it would become my beloved job someday.
I did a Bachelor’s in Foreign Languages (English, Italian) and then a Master Degree in Management of Tourist Industries. Then I became a freelancer working as a Social Media Manager in Web Tourism. All this time, I was missing something: having my camera right in my hands, being allowed to express my creativity… Meanwhile I was studying and then working, I was experiencing things with my camera, learning, experiencing again, and finally I practiced a lot through daily life, discoveries and travel.
Years have passed and I became more and more confident with my camera and I felt that I needed it to play a bigger part in my life (like if it was a third eye I couldn’t hide anymore). I created a blog (Parenthèse Citron) but doing photography only for me just wasn’t enough. Through short missions in France and Spain (where I lived 3 years 1/2), I decided that I needed a little revolution in my life.
I did photography volunteering while waiting for my USA work autorization (in case you were asking, I followed my husband for his post-doc) and then got my first pro projects here in Boston. Now I contemplate time, family, friends (and opportunities I took) really gratefully for allowing me to be really happy at work!
Which projects do I work on?
My work consists mainly in doing portrait / family / couple sessions, as well as covering cultural events. I also do corporate work related to social (teams) or marketing (products, places) fields, for I am always glad to help companies/charities to grow on the web and social media providing them dreamy photos. As an ex-Social Media Manager and Web Marketer, I of course know the importance of having good quality images to show in order to sustain projects / ideas!
Another thing about me?
I moved a lot (4 times in France, then in Spain, and now in the US), and it gave me a great capacity of adaptation (to people, places, cultures, circomstances…), that I use in my job to take advantage of every context.
I also traveled a lot these last years, as I wanted to expand my horizons. I would be happy to travel to work with you on your project, wherever you are, so dare contact me and tell me about it!
