In a world of fast paced and constant stimulation, we forget to see what is happening around us. Those precious moments between you and your husband, your baby’s smile or a coffee break with your parents sometimes get lost in our millennial world. Therefore, having a moment to step back and enjoy an hour or two with your family turns into a stressful time.
I am here to show you that it is time to give value to what really matters and enjoy yourself with the ones you love to the fullest. We are here for such a short time and we should appreciate what we have in our lives.
Documenting intimacy in the purest way and transforming moments into heirlooms to be cherished forever. California & Worldwide!

Hello, Beautiful Soul!
I am Stephane, and I am so FREAKING excited you are here with me. I am a storyteller photographer based in California, but always looking for the next adventure.
I loooove connection and emotional photography with a touch of magic. If you are ready for dance moves, the coolest experience and adventures, act like you were in a Hollywood movie and laugh the whole time we are together… YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! So grab a glass of wine (or grape juice if you are an expecting mama), let’s connect and be friends for LIFE.
“Whether we realize it or not, everything we do is an expression of either how alive our souls are or how much we have allowed ourselves to be deadened over time.”
I look to capture genuine and organic moments, the way he fixes your hair or your dress, the way your family interact to each other as the everyday occasion, I don’t focus on those “smile to the camera” kind of photography, of course we will definitely take these type of photos for cards, but trust me, the intimate moments are the ones you will cherish forever and MUST probably the captures you will want to hang on your wall.
I thrive outdoors, the adventurous couples and families, during a beautiful sunset as the wind blows your hair and layers. This is the way my creative spirit comes to life and where we can connect in the best way possible.
“Stephane is an incredibly talented photographer, I’m so glad we chose her to photograph our small wedding ceremony. The photos she takes convey so much emotion. She’s really, really good at coming up with unique, natural looking poses for her photographs. She had so many ideas for us and was always sure to explain what she was going for in each photo. She’s also an absolute sweetheart and is so easy to work with. We felt so comfortable with her the entire time and our families really liked her.”

“the only art we can create is that which authentically reflects who we are. Our soul is the material for all we create. Thus, to nurture the artisan soul, essence is far more important than talent.”
