My intention is to create a powerful experience for women, to enable them to express themselves, their beauty, strength and personality and have all their amazing qualities forever recorded in beautiful imagery.
Whether you need corporate headshots, a bridal portrait, a mother & daughter session, a boudoir or maternity shoot or beautiful images that celebrate who you are right now, I will be thrilled to create timeless portraits that you will cherish for a lifetime.

BEFORE & AFTER
Meet the Artist
I am a French Portrait Photographer specialised in women portraiture.
I love to create beautiful portraits. I am here to remind you and to convince you that you are absolutely gorgeous. I am always looking for Elegance, Femininity and Connection which are the three elements essential to a successful portrait session.
Our all-female team will make you feel at home as soon as you arrive. You will be pampered and taken care of during the whole session, as we really want you to feel like a supermodel. As your photographer, I will coach you through the whole photoshoot, helping you with the perfect poses and expressions.
This experience is an adventure of self-discovery,
You're gonna love it!
Why choosing me?
My studio is based in Surry Hills, a 5-minute walk from Central.
Private & Intimate
My studio is in my own apartment. That means you can feel at home, nobody else will see you, you will feel more relaxed and confident.
In Person Image Selection
I'll help you choose your best images so it's a quick and stress-free process.
I offer a unique experience that you will remember for years to come. Each time you'll look at your images, you'll remember the day of the shoot, when you felt amazingly gorgeous.
All Female Team
I only work with female make-up artists so you can feel 100% comfortable and secure.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee
So that you can feel confident about getting the images you love. If you really don't like any (never happened!), you'll be offered a complimentary shoot.
HOW IT WORKS
This is when we have a quick chat together about how you want to be captured in order to tell the story of who you are right now. We talk about your hair, the make-up that you'd like and of course the amazing outfits you want to bring to the session.
2. Professional Hair & Makeup
When you arrive to my studio, you'll spend an hour with my lovely make-up artist. This is when the transformation begins, physically and mentally. We'll do your hair & make-up based on your style and how you want to look. Women have so many different personalities, we usually start with something natural & candid but it's totally up to you, we'll always listen to your needs and if you want to try new things, we're here for you!
3. Photoshoot Time
After you've had the chance to unwind and are really starting to wonder why you haven't done this sooner, the real fun begins! We start with relaxed, natural poses and outfits. I'll move on to some corporate shots, if you need them. Then we'll turn things up a notch with the glamour shots giving you a chance to be elegant, seductive, captivating, and basically just drop-dead gorgeous.
I'll tell you how to pose, I just need you to feel at ease and to trust me. The best images are when you feel the most comfortable. And as your self-confidence grows during the session, you'll feel like another woman, you'll look like yourself!
4. Reveal Session
You'll come back to the studio a few weeks after your session to have a look at all the portraits I took of you. You can choose your favorite images (which will be tough, I warn you!) and decide how you want to take them home (another tough choice). I offer a beautiful collection of products from Prints to Wall art to Portfolio boxes.

Which one is your excuse?
Breathe, everything is gonna be fine...
"I'm not photogenic"
Well, this is definitely MY job to make you look and feel amazing, not yours!
"I need to lose weight"
I will pose you and light you in such a way that you won't focus on your weight but just enjoy the experience.
"I'm too old"
Humm, there is no such thing as being too old to be photographed. You are beautiful today and this is what I want to show you.
"I can't afford it"
I work with all kind of budgets and offer a payment plan to make things easier.
"I hate being photographed"
I promise a fun and comfortable experience. When you'll look at your images, you'll understand it was worth it.
"It's my first time"
Well, like 99% of my clients who come to me are very nervous but they finally enjoy their experience and get beautiful images of themselves.
I'M SO GRATEFUL!
My team and I handle every aspect of creating your portraits, from the moment we begin our work together, until the moment I deliver your personalized works of art. We firmly believe it is our ability to deliver a priceless legacy of creative portraits with our customers that keeps them recommending us again and again...
+ Are the women on your website professional models?
Absolutely not! I only work with real women just like you and I.
+I don't know how to pose. How will I know if I look good?
No worries. It might be your first photoshoot experience so you are a little bit worried about the whole process. Remember that you have one hour with a professional hair and make-up artist, she is going to make you look incredible trust me! Then you don't have to know how to pose, I will coach you every step of the way, you'll only have to mirror me. Easy.
+Do you "photoshop" me?
Yes. However it is very important for me that you look like...YOU. I am not a Fashion photographer where I try to make my model perfect. I am not going to change you into someone you're not. My goal is that you see yourself as you truly are: Just Beautiful!
+What is the cost of a shoot?
Photoshoots begin at $190. Images are sold separately. What you purchase at the end is entirely up to you.
+What should I bring to a Glamour session?
Every woman is different. You might want a natural look with jeans or a more glamour look with a formal gown. You can come with a few different outfits so we can choose together.
+How and when will I see my images from my photoshoot?
Depending on which session you choose, we will schedule your viewing session between one or two weeks after the photoshoot. In the studio, we'll go through the images together and choose your favourites.
