HALEIGH WALSWORTH is an American writer, photographer, and filmmaker with a passion for storytelling.

You made it, and I for one am happy to have you here. If you stick around and have a read, I’m sure you will be too. Writer, photographer, and filmmaker sounds like a bit of an inflated job title. The truth is though, things just happened that way. Of course a lot of other things had to happen first for me to get here.

At twenty, I moved to Paris from California not knowing a single soul. After my Bachelors Degree in Communications from The American University of Paris and learning to parler français, I got right down to business working in a branding agency for two years. As a digital native, I liked the challenge of marketing in 140 characters or less. I pursued opportunities in social media, and had a nice run working for some of Europe’s leading luxury brands and America’s top film production companies.

Somewhere along the way I started Making Magique. I believe that life is what you make of it, and I want mine to be nothing short of magic. For me that’s having a camera in my bag and a pen in my hand, making beautiful things along the way. Recently, I left my full time job to make it on my own. Let’s hope the odds are in my favor this year. Either way, it’s going to make a great story.

Haleigh is currently the official blogger of Lancôme’s Paris Rendez-Vous, photographed for brands such as Nina Ricci and Bumble & Bumble, and directed various films including a documentary for the Italian Board of Tourism.
