Have you ever felt like you were playing a character around other people? That you were not truly yourself, just to please people? One day I decided I would stop worrying about what others may think. And I felt a thousand times better. All I want is to live an authentic life — be grounded, live intensely, feel deeply. Be moved by everything I see — people, places, art.
I was lucky to grow up in an environment where I was encouraged to question everything, look deeper, and to find what’s authentic. With how today’s world feels — loud, rushed, virtual — I hold onto all that like a treasure. This is the very source of my approach as a portrait photographer. It’s not just about a pretty smile; it’s about real emotions. It’s the thousand words you say with your eyes when you look at your baby, your partner, or straight at my camera.
My mom is a wonderful psychoanalyst who has thought me to always look beyond what I see in a person. I quickly became obsessed with understanding what people actually felt between the lines. Do the eyes say the same thing as the words coming out of their mouth? What does that gesture, that faint smile means? That is naturally how I became passionate about portraiture: capturing the almost imperceptible details is what reveals the essence of a person. That’s what authentic photography is all about.
I launched Bent Hues Photography with the desire of creating a space for people in need of authentic
for the bold ones, the shy ones, the spontaneous ones
the cool moms
the scared dads
the wild couples
the women who love other women
the ones who think they feel too much
the ones who are restless, who need to be inspired, who always want to do more learn more love more
I speak your language & I want to capture what makes you who you are.
