Fed Up Single Photographer Creates Family Portraits…With a Twist

After constantly being asked why she wasn’t married yet, photographer and art director Suzanne Heintz took to photography to express her frustrations with being labeled a spinster in our modern times. Go along for a ride with Heintz as she parades around Paris taking photographs of herself with a family that’s not quite what you might expect:
