Artist Statement I photograph people, with their many unique expressions and beautiful emotions. I’m drawn to the elegant and timeless feel of black & white photos and I have a strong passion for film photography. I absolutely adore the organic nature of film, as well as the beautiful colors that film delivers. I put my heart and soul into every photograph. My goal is to capture those perfect fleeting moments and make them timeless. When I feel a connection with my subject, that’s when I shoot. Those are the moments that are special, the moments that connect my viewer to my subject.
Hand Painted Photographs I custom print my black & white film photographs in a darkroom on gelatin silver paper, hand painting select photos to express and evoke emotion. I enjoy working with soft, pastel oil paints to create a whimsical and romantic feel. I create this dreamy effect by applying photo oil paints directly onto a custom printed silver photograph. The paint colors and saturation depend on the subject matter and mood of each individual image. Every hand painted photograph is an original one of a kind, no two are exactly the same.
The Original Red Umbrella In Paris photograph was first captured by Juliane Berry in 2012 and was featured on the cover of Le Style Magazine.
Paris & Los Angeles After living as an American expat in France for 13 years, I just moved back to Los Angeles and am currently booking photo shoots in Southern California. Of course, j’ai deux amours – Paris & California. Paris has a magical ambiance that constantly inspires me as an artist. I visit Paris every summer and whenever possible, so please email me to book your Paris photo session for any season. Available for portraits, families, elopements, engagements, and proposals in France and California.
