My first camera was a present for my 8th birthday and since then I have seen the world through a lens. As a child, I used to put everything on film: every little family and school event, holiday or gathering, but also everyday moments like my dog snoozing. At my parents’ house in Italy there are still boxes upon boxes of my prints and negatives.
Then, like today, it was all about capturing memories and making moments last forever. I never thought about it as a career until I started travelling in my early 20s. The close encounters with wildlife, natural disasters and different cultures has made my passion stronger and my pictures more engaging; it has given me the will to pull up my sleeves and learn what it takes to make photography my profession.
Four amazing years working in the UK’s leading Family Photography Studio “Venture”, gave me the tools and the experience to call myself a professional photographer and allowed me to photograph my favourite subject: people! My work has been recognised in the yearly “Award Winning Stories” Book in 2014, 2015 and 2016. In March 2015 I won the Venture Photography Gold Award “Our faithful friends” in the Families with Pets Category.
In 2016 I moved to Australia with the love of my life and adventure buddy, Phil, to our beloved Darwin where we had spent many months during our travel years. Here I am making my dream come true, my own family photography business. Since then I have become a mamma; little Leo and baby Giorgia joined our world and my love for capturing every single moment has grown even stronger.
In 2020 I started the Driveway Project in Darwin. Check it out HERE.
In 2022 I am celebrating 10 years as a professional photographer ❤️
