How did I become a photographer?
I fell in love with photography 8 years ago, but I had not planned at this time 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, finally practicing through daily life, discoveries and travel.
Years have passed and I became more and more at ease with my camera so 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 projects here. Now I contemplate time, family, friends (and opportunities I took) really gratefully for allowing me to do everyday something that I deeply love!
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, 2 in Spain, 2 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 profit of every context.
I also traveled a lot, as I wanted to expand my horizons. Knowing that I would of course be happy to travel to work with you on your project, wherever you are, dare contact me and tell me about it!
