With my camera in hands, I'm an artist who captures the special relationships amongst family members. Whether it's a special day or just any Sunday afternoon, I’ll turn what would be an ordinary moment into something beautiful and extraordinary as a memory in motion and with sound! I take people through time with my films, so parents and children can always revisit their past while preserving it for the future. My work is very nostalgic and I love to bring people back to the way they felt in a certain moment and, at the same time, remind kids of how much they were and are loved!
I found myself really drawn to video. I quickly realized that it was the perfect medium for telling meaningful family stories, like births, grandparents legacies, motherhood journeys, or a normal afternoon spent together... Capturing moments and interactions that could otherwise be forgotten! Since then, I've created some of the most touching images and films while working with wonderful families on a very emotional love journey that for so many give meaning to life.
One of the best moments of my life was when I first showed the film below to my daughter. She was nine years old, she cried and told me she understood why I create films. Very mature reaction, right?! Imagine my surprise! I expected her to get it in the future, when she becomes an adult. I want her to have this film so she can remember the things we do together - our little mom-and-daughter traditions, laughs we share, places we love, ..., there are so many little details in that film that most people will not notice, but she does! And she will always have that!
