My name is Juliette, a storytelling and documentary photographer based in Maryland who is often caught daydreaming about my native France. 
Moving abroad made me conscious of my surroundings and the significant people near and far in my life. Being between 2 countries, I wanted to remember it all, here and there. I am inspired (and frightened!) by moments that pass by, past that is no longer accessible, change in the family dynamic and death. Hence my desire to freeze time. 

I love to photograph families at home, the epicenter of family life, where childhood memories are formed. I will capture your story when you are fearlessly you: when you do the things you love to do in the places you love to be. I will catch glimpses of your family personality when you are in the moment enjoying the simple fact of being together.

I love to document the love (and tears) that go into family life, or during a sweet reunion, or when you are managing your small business . My style is far from standard posing and cheesy smile. I rather capture a feeling, an emotion, a connection. My clients demand something different, something honest and true to real life.
