About the Author: Jamie Beck took her first photograph at the age of 13 and soon after began earning her living as a professional photographer. By 28, she opened her own commercial photography studio in lower Manhattan.

In 2016, she took what was to be a one-year sabbatical to create a personal body of work in the south of France, which changed the entire course of her life, as she took on a new career as an art photographer and delivered a French-born baby girl named Eloise. Jamie lives in Provence with her husband and daughter.
