When the time came to create a photo site, I jokingly mentioned to friends that “Divatography” seemed an obvious choice for a name given my background as a singer and a photographer. I wasn’t really serious – after all, I don’t “only” shoot opera singers, and some people think “diva” means snooty and uncooperative, which is a far cry from the playful and collaborative atmosphere I prefer to cultivate in my shoots! But everybody liked it, and I kept coming back to it, despite it being a little bit silly (maybe even because it’s a little bit silly!). It tells the story. It rolls off the tongue. Most importantly, it made me smile. I hope it will make you smile too!
