This was 2018 • documentary family photographer in Maryland

It seems 2018 is already behind but I just wanted to take a moment to look back and enjoy all the little things I captured for you. The world is in a tough place but 2018 filled my lens with lots of meaningful family moments (and meaningful was my word for 2018!) so MERCI for trusting me and my vision. You will find some of my favorite images in the video below, most of them were taken at-home and around. You showed me the places you loved and I am grateful I was able to freeze time for you and show you in pictures the great work you are doing as a parent.

There are things coming up for 2019, and the one I am particularly excited about is to partner with One Tree Planted. As I embarked my family on a zero waste lifestyle in 2018, my business needed a greener facelift too. It means that with every products you purchase, a tree will be planted! I will keep you posted throughout the year. LET’S PLANT A FOREST!

2018 was my busiest year so far. Thanks for supporting a small business, a woman, a mom. It really makes a difference in my life, for my family and in my community. So from the bottom of my heart, MERCI. I am looking forward to seeing what 2019 has in store.

Cheers 2018 and Hooray for another year 2019 looking forward to working with former and new clients!

Here are some photos of my personal family life in 2018. I feel like I take less and less everyday pictures except when we are in France or in vacation but this is one of my goal for 2019: more extraordinary pictures of our ordinary :-)

I have a documentary approach for photographing families so they can just slow down and enjoy the simple moment of being together. If you would like to see more of my recent family photography, head over to my Instagram account. I love to document the love (and tears) that go into family life, or managing a small business or a sweet reunion. Subscribe to my newsletter, I would love to have you there. xx

Pop-up Sessions • Maryland and New Jersey family photographer

Mid-April I had the pleasure to meet 9 kids and take their photos. It was the first time I organized mini sessions and I loved it. It was fun to see the different personalities and capture the sweet bond between siblings (and sometimes not so sweet but I got only good stuff that day!). 

Here is what Jen H. says about the experience: "Working with Juliette was such a treat! Her effortless manner makes you feel like you are hanging out with a friend--who just happens to be taking the most spectacular photos of your children. We did a session with our two girls and the resulting images captured the essence of their *very* different personalities just perfectly. Juliette also took gorgeous photos that speak to the absolute love between two sisters, something that is just magic to see. In this world of fleeting images and constant motion, pictures taken by Juliette are a treasure. She stops time for just a bit, and that is priceless."

Chemistry • Maryland Maternity photographer

Lately, all my close friends got pregnant. Which was awesome because it meant multiple maternity sessions (and newborn sessions!!). I did this shoot for Christine at her home and got totally inspired by that red chair she just got a few weeks before. We brainstormed some ideas; she wanted something intimate with just her and the baby-to-be. But when her son came back from his walk with daddy we snapped a few pictures for the 5 minutes he cooperated. And they turned out really good, I love them all. You can tell that he already loved his little sister really much. 

When you have an older kid and get pregnant again, you never know how the chemistry between the 2  will be. It was really sweet to catch loving moments between the big-brother and baby-to-be. I am glad she has those memories forever.
