Seeing my children growing has been my first chance to perfect my portrait skills and the study of expressions and expressivity.
Being a mother gave me the chance to portrait these marvelous subjects: I spent hours and hours staring at them, taking pictures of them being careless, unaware, developing, their glance becoming mature, their transition from the age of fairy tales to that of consciousness and awareness.
The spontaneity and authenticity I look for in portraiture, trying to create a close relationship based on empathy and trust, are completely natural here.
Photographing kids & teens means celebrating important moments that are bound to never come back such as the transition into adult life. Moments that capture the ongoing, never-ending storm of emotions. A new world in continuous evolution made of changes disclosed by their new looks and the discovery of their existence.
