HELLO I'M PAULETTE, YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER In PARIS
Born and raised in Paris with a Cambodian background, I lived many years abroad before moving back trusting Hemingway's saying " There are only two places in the world where we can live happy: at home and in Paris". My journey started in 2007 when I moved to Cambodia and later Vietnam, back to my roots in the country my family left 40 years ago to make a better living in France.
My passion for photography grew whilst traveling and I learnt on the job by attending various photo tours and workshops through Southeast Asia. A couple of years ago, I decided to quit a corporate job that was no more fulfilling and moved back to the City of Light to live my dream job as a professional photographer. As I love welcoming travelers, sharing my experience of the city with people and documenting their journey through the lens of my camera, I started to design customized photo tours combining a photo shoot together with a Parisian walk for individuals, couples and families in Paris.
I love to capture people's feelings and emotions but above all, photography teaches me to focus and remain in the present moment while enjoying what we have in the now. I never feel so connected than when I'm guiding guests in Paris through a photo walk, sharing with them stories about the city and its people. I believe images are part of our daily lives and it’s important to keep track of our intimate moments and best memories. While I’m still in pursuit of Wanderlust, my photo walks in Paris give me the opportunity to welcome visitors from all over the world and keep me traveling in my own country.
I'm parisian enthusiast, a life explorer, a travel passionate, a story teller, a coffee addict, a creative soul and a dedicated yogi.
If you had told me once I would live from my passion one day, I would have never believed it. What can I say: follow your dreams!
I source my daily inspiration from my parisian walks in the city, my travels around the world and above all from the people I meet and with whom I create deep connection.
