About MarieLou 

Freelance photographer based in Toronto, Ontario. 

MarieLou is passionate to create beauty of the everyday life, primarily with focus on food, styling and lifestyle. Throughout her travels, she finds what most influences her work is observing the historical background, community and culture from each place. She strongly believes food is life and is what motivates her as an artist. During the creative process, MarieLou uses her photography as a form of storytelling.

Taking influence from renaissance artists, she creates moody atmospheres and makes great use of chiaroscurro lighting. Her goal is to work towards well-known food and lifestyle magazines.
