About

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with storytelling: books, movies, artworks. Following my studies in Art History, I have spent years working on exhibitions for museums surrounded by marvelous stories and incredible images.

When I became a mother, I wanted to document my children's lives as authentically as possible. My passion for photography was born from a need to remember, and it truly changed me. 

There is so much beauty in everyday moments, in the connections we share, in the memories we make. 

I would love to meet your family and capture part of your story! To learn more or contact me.
