I was born in Italy in 1988 (Leo sun, Libra moon, Sag rising, Aries mars, Cancer venus, where are my astrology nerds?), spent most of my life in a small town on Garda Lake, 30 minutes away from Verona - kinda known for most Americans through Romeo and Juliet - and studied in Lille, France, for a semester in University and came back fully fluent - no, I don't remember sh*t anymore lol. Moved to the USA in 2015 to follow my husband and spent almost 5 years in the SF Bay Area with him. After divorce I needed a fresh start and moved to Texas, where I also opened my own boudoir studio.

I’m so happy you have found me. let's get to know each other...

Hi,
and Hey!

hello

Starting from a few yards of fabric or, even better, some bedsheets from Good Will, and ending up with a full garment I can wear and get compliments on, makes me feel so accomplished! Sewing also saved me from the quarantine boredom!

Sewing is a huge passion of mine

Shooting photos for my food blog is how I learned how to use a DSLR. After spending 6 months taking pics for my first and only (for now) cookbook, I felt the need to portray "moving objects" and asked some friends if they could model for me. Months later, a friend asked me to shoot their wedding and now here we are.  

I wrote a cookbook!

I started dancing when I was 6 years old and I left at 23, when I decided that strict field wasn't for me anymore. But I know that learning the beauty of the body and its lines helps me every time I hold my camera and capture a subject, especially during a boudoir session.
