“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
Hello and welcome to my website – I am an Italian photographer based in London and I hope you can see from my work how passionate I am about creating memories.
I am a lifestyle portrait photographer specialising in families, teenagers and boudoir. Whether I photograph a baby, a child, a moody teenager, an adult or a family, my aim is to create authentic, soulful portraits that capture character and personality during a fun and informal session.
As a teenager, growing up in my native Italy, I was inspired by my father’s love of photography. A keen amateur photographer, my father was determined to record my childhood and teenage years. I have fond memories of this, and the photographs I have of me – learning to swim, ride a bike, fly a kite and use his camera – are now very precious to me.
My interest in boudoir photography began with an infatuation with classic films, combined with a penchant for beautiful lingerie and vintage clothing. This has ignited my desire to create beautiful images that have sensuality, mood and a subtle power of seduction.
I know how significant images can be in evoking powerful emotions. Photographs can take us back to a time, place or person, remind us how things were and help us to value the present. My aim is to capture stunning images that you will want to gaze at again and again, that stand the test of time and which you and your children will treasure.
My journey to photography has been unconventional. Following my move to London to study English, I pursued a career in fine arts, sales and marketing, but always fantasised about becoming a portrait photographer. After a trip to the Camargue in 2013, to photograph its stunning landscapes, wild horses and its people, I decided to follow my dream and took several courses with the Nikon School (https://www.nikon.co.uk/training/) and received further training via a mentoring programme (http://www.trainingbylumiere.co.uk) with high profile photographer and Nikon Ambassador , Kate Hopewell-Smith.
I have always loved working with people, so specialising in portraiture and boudoir has been a natural step for me. When I am not preparing a studio for a photo shoot, chasing children trying to capture that magic moment, the chances are you will find me taking photos on holiday or in central London.
If you like my approach to portraiture, or have any questions, please get in touch – I would love to hear from you.
