focusing on expression
I started photographing my dog and stuffed animals with my 110 camera back in the 80's. The camera, be it a AE1, Brownie, Bronica, Polaroid, Pinhole in a Tide Box, or an iPhone, has been my tool I feel most comfortable using to create. An eye for detail, a sharp visual memory and inquisitive, easy going personality all aid in my behind the lens expertise.
Beginning in 2000, I photographed Weddings, Portraits and Corporate work under my business Argenté Photographie. My work has evolved to focus more on referral based portraiture of families, HS seniors and art.
Photo credit my husband, Chris Prideaux, who worked at my side for years.
