My name is Steph. I am a professional photographer, originally from France. I trained in Paris as a fashion photographer and I am now living in Melbourne, Naarm, for 13 years.
I’m a single mum of a young daughter. We enjoy our vegetable garden and chooks which contribute to our home’s sustainable living (something I am very passionate about!) and with a love for nature, we also enjoy bushwalking and camping. I spend much time reading and watching films, my favourite author being Doctor Gabor Mate and my favourite film being The Green Ray, directed by Eric Rohmer. I am a very diverse and environmentally minded person, I accept and respect all people and our beautiful planet.
My love for photography began early and after finishing school, I moved to Paris as an assistant photographer for the renowned Daylight Studios. This led to my career as a professional fashion/art and advertising photographer, during which time I was also represented by the distinguished modelling agency Ford, giving me the unique experience of being on both sides of the lens.
My early career in Paris introduced me to reportage and portraiture, where my true passion for documenting real people and their stories began. In 2013, after arriving in Melbourne, Naarm, I established Photographiez Votre Histoire (Photograph Your Story). Here, my experience from both sides of the lens came together, bringing a deeper understanding to my role as a photographer and creating the unique style of PVH.
Clients describe my work as honest, elegant, and fun. I prefer to capture unique stories in a natural and genuine way, avoiding the style of studio posed photography. This ensures that everyone feels comfortable before the camera and prioritizes quality and authenticity. For me, documenting weddings and families fulfills my love for capturing honest, raw moments of people from all backgrounds and cultures.
