BEAUTIFUL! I photographed this lovely couple (Ella and Mario) in the piazza; Ella left France when she was young to be with her husband here in Italy. On the morning I was taking photos outside her home at 7am, she greeted me in French. Her homeland is still close to her heart..

I'm a English photographer and mother living in a quaint medieval village in the hills of Tuscany, Italy. Almost every day I find myself lost in the stunning landscape and architecture of these ancient settlements. I try and portray this beauty through my images, in hope of transporting those browsing to a more peaceful and tranquil place.
