Pictures are nowadays so easy to take. Any time, any place with our phones or our tablets, at the restaurants and at home, with friends and family, selfies or group pictures... We take pictures all the time. Mainly to post them in social medias or just to take them, almost like a reflex gesture.
Unfortunately, we don't do much with them. Most of the time, we don't print them, we don't create albums, do we even look at them afterwards? We might not even save them on our computer or on an external hard drive. We take the risk to loose them.
I remember, being a kid, going through photo albums of my childhood and I cherish them as a part of my history. Those moments I couldn't remember because I was too young are just there, kept into those photo albums. How lucky I am to have those existing memories printed out! Nowadays, as an adult, I still love looking at photo albums, to remind me great moments of my life, of my family's and friends' lives.
So here is my vision of my amazing job:
- Capturing emotions and beauty of your life and its major events, with my sensitivity and my empathy.
- Giving back to photography a valuable place in your life.
Photography is about capturing a moment that will be gone. It's about creating memories. It's about stopping time and keeping a smile alive, a happy moment for a lifetime. It's about creating images of your history. It's about you and your story.
I love to be the photographer who is doing her very best to offer you beautiful images you and your family will cherish forever.
I'd like to share with you a few very inspirational quotes, defining the way I see photography:
"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still" - Dorothea Lange
"We don't sell photography, we sell what photography offers to people" - Ladislas Kadyszewski
"Price is what you pay, value is what you get" - Warren Buffet
"It is part of the photographer's job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveler who enters a strange country. Most photographers would feel a certain embarrassment in admitting publicly that they carried within them a sense of wonder, yet without it they would not produce the work they do, whatever their particular field. It is the gift of seeing the life around them clearly and vividly, as something that is exciting in its own right. It is an innate gift, varying in intensity with the individual's temperament and environment." Bill Brandt

I'm a 39-year-old French photographer, based in Istanbul since October 2013. Here is my story:
"Everything happens for a reason". In April 2011, during a family week end, I fell off a horse and broke two vertebrae by collapsing. A five months cessation of work was necessary. In January 2012, I ask to leave my position to finally doing it in April 2012. During the summer 2012, with an auto-coaching book, I work on defining new opportunities I want to choose in my life. September 2012, I know what I want to do: to become a freelance photographer in Istanbul. I decide to set up all I can for this new choice of life. In October 2013, I move to my new life and since then I find my true self becoming a photographer.
I found my passion, I found my authentic self and I cannot be more happy about this.
