Who is Jolie?

In one sense, she doesn’t exist. In another, she is present through every strong woman I have ever come in contact with.

It was hard at the beginning to put my actual name with the word, “photography” behind it. After all, I would think, I’m not a photographer; I’m not someone who could be taken seriously. With that mentality, I crafted a pseudonym based on a song my dad calls the Cajun national anthem — Jolie Blonde. Although I boasted some poorly applied highlights in 2005, I could never pass a blonde.  Marron seemed much more appropriate.
