Hi there, I’m Camille! I’m one of those people that when you first meet, you might think, “okay, she’s a bit weird, but a good weird”. I embrace the weird, the subtleties, & the easily overlooked. And if you’re quirky like me, then we may just become fast friends. In fact, that is what I strive for when meeting new clients, to get to know you like I would a friend.
I’m a lover of storytelling. I work in lifestyle & documentary mode photographing real families in real moments. I create heartwarming images by capturing life, just as it is. Those images that not only look great, but leave you feeling something.
I want to work with you to tell your story, unposed. Whether you choose to share your story with me in the nest or in the wild, I will take my time observing your family while documenting the precious interactions and beautiful moments you may not have noticed are there.
A little bit more about me…
I am a “winging it” kind of mother. Two little joys of my life run my day-to-day & I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My mother is Puerto Rican & my father was a Cuban political refugee, so I grew up speaking both English & Spanish & eating the most amazing food. I was born & mostly raised in Northern Virginia & have lived in places like Colombia South America, Hawaii, Baltimore, Los Angeles, & Texas. Those places are partly due to being a military spouse. We are a US Coast Guard family & incredibly proud of it!
Before sharing my art as a professional photographer, I worked in the nonprofit sector geared towards helping those in most need. Although I have an unbelievable amount of passion for nonprofits & helping people, being a military spouse can make it a bit tough to stick to a particular career path. We move so often & find that we have to reinvent ourselves, work wise, again & again. Photography has been able to offer me a passion I can stick with, no matter where I am on this planet & I am truly grateful.
