I am so glad you’re here! My name is Myriam. But everyone around me calls me Mimi from the French cartoon Mimi la souris (Maisy Mouse in English), so feel free to call me Mimi.
I was born in Jakarta – Indonesia, adopted at the age of 2.5 years old by Italian parents who worked and lived in the French part of Belgium. I have 2 younger brothers, adopted as well from Paraguay and India. We all grew up right there. I did all my studies in Brussels and I’m a former architect and interior designer who never worked in that area. But I did work in the sport/leisure domain mainly, from lifeguard, to swimming teacher, to personal trainer, to children educator.
In 2009, I landed in Australia as a working/holidays visa holder and ended up with a permanent visa. I’m married to an understanding man and between us we have two beautiful sons and two step-sons, from 3 years old to 16 years old, there is a lot to cover and to keep us busy on a daily basis!
Here in Australia, I’ve first worked as a lab technician and administrator, then started my own online business for baby and kid goods in 2013. Last but not least, my hobby for photography that I discovered in high school, you know that time we learned to develop films in a dark room, has become my favourite passion. I like to discover and bring the beauty, authenticity, emotions out of anyone and everyone in strong images that will speak to people at different levels. My favourite subjects to capture are the little and big moments of newborns, children and families. In their natural, genuine and authentic lifestyle.
When I’m not behind the camera or packing orders, I love everything art and craft such as drawing, sewing, knitting,… and my latest craze is recycling used wood pallets into something new and useful (sand pit, indoor/outdoor furniture, cubby house‚…)
If you ever catch me in between my multi tasks, don’t forget to bring some ice-cream and baileys.
