Here’s the snapshot: Born in Nice, France now an Arizona enthusiast, especially the Grand Canyon’s majesty. Studied economy, but photography stole my heart. I don’t just capture; I craft marketing magic with my lens. Off-duty? Backpacking the wild or leveling up in video games. That’s Marie in a flash!

My Grandmother in Vivian Maier's Lens

In a small French village, stories of my grandma and her dear dog, Mirou, were shared often. I believed we only had one picture of grandma and none of Mirou. But then, a surprise from Chicago changed that. They found photos by a famous lady, Vivian Maier. Amazingly, one of those photos showed my grandma with Mirou! It felt like finding a hidden treasure. This isn’t just a regular picture; it’s a special connection to my past.

Beach Experiment: The Unexpected Mandala

When I was 14, summer camp led me to one of those spontaneous photography adventures. On a beach day, a quirky idea popped into my head. I asked five friends to huddle together, their heads forming the center of a playful human mandala, with arms creating a unique pattern. I dove beneath, snapping a picture from below. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting a masterpiece. Their faces were tucked in shadows, and the bright sky dominated the backdrop.

Yet, when I looked at the result, I couldn’t help but smile. No, it wasn’t going to win any awards. But that wasn’t the point. The lively patterns, the spontaneous mandala, and the sheer fun of the moment stood out. It’s one of those images that constantly nudges me to step out of my comfort zone. It’s a reminder to stay curious, take risks, and embrace my journey of continuous growth and exploration as a photographer.

A Bottle and a Burst of Personalities

As someone trained to direct and pose individuals who might not be comfortable in front of the camera, I’ve always had an eye for the ‘perfect’ shot. But Christmas 2019 offered a delightful break from the norm. It was chaos – and I loved every bit of it. My family, fighting over a bottle, were unapologetically themselves. Every person in the frame was doing something different, letting their true personalities shine through.

The resulting image is a tapestry of emotions and actions that tell a rich story. It’s raw, genuine, and full of life. It reminds me that as much as I love to create the perfect shot, there’s undeniable beauty in letting people be. To capture them in their essence, sometimes all I need to do is step back and let the moment unfold.
