Growing up in Geneva, Switzerland, it’s not real surprise that I’ve been drawn to and influenced by the world of luxury watches and fashion. My mum loved clothes, and was forever dragging me along to the various beautiful boutiques that could be found in the small city. Couple that with a collective obsession with fashion magazines from both my grandmother, my mother, and later, myself, it was almost inevitable that I would be drawn to a career in the fashion industry.
When I was about 8 years old, my godmother moved to the island of Ibiza, much to my mum’s delight. Subsequently, I spent my most of my summers on the island. Don’t mistake Ibiza for simply being a party island - it is so much more than that; a free spirited, easygoing, bohemian island, with warm temperatures, olive groves as far as the eye can see, and crystal clear waters.
It wasn’t until I was 15 that I discovered photography. As an angsty, emotional, and tragically romantic teen, I discovered Flickr. Fascinated that young people of the same age were taking photos, and sharing them, I was hooked. I went onto study a degree in Fashion Photography at Falmouth University.
My work is incredibly influenced by my upbringings in both Geneva and Ibiza. The love for fashion, and beautifully crafted accessories, coupled with my adoration of the bohemian, free spirited vibes of Ibiza somehow mesh into one, and create the photos that I take.
These days, I work with brands and business such as Daisy Jewellery, Barbour, Joules, White Stuff, La Galeria Elefante and Crew Clothing. I take images which help them to grow their audiences, sell their products and inspire their followers.

We were keen to work with Olivia for our official Joules Instagram account. She was very enthusiastic about helping and getting involved. Her mood boards were on brand and her ability to capture the personality of the brand into a story was perfect. The final edits were amazing and received high praise across the entire Joules team. We always continue to share all her images across the business as well as on our social channels. Olivia helped us to tell the story of "World Photo Day", capturing the perfect family holiday snap. She was more than happy to help and get creative once more. She understood the mood, theme and story we wanted to portray and once again, the final edits impressed!
We’re already looking forward to working with Olivia again. Thank you Olivia!
We’ve really enjoyed working with Olivia on content creation for Crew Clothing Company’s social media channels. We’re based in London but many of our stores are dotted along the south coast so it’s been really handy working with Olivia who lives nearby. The images she’s captured for us have always been spot on. She interprets briefs well, has a great eye for detail and understands our brand perfectly. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
We were looking for coastal photography so Olivia came to mind. I remembered that she'd been really forthcoming and willing to try new things so we knew she'd like the challenge! Olivia is very quick to respond, positive and comes up with great creative solutions. The work produced was a branding exercise and was very positively received particularly on Facebook. We couldn't have gotten that without working with Olivia.
