She has enjoyed four solo shows for her photographic artwork, which generated press coverage in The Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Confidential and Angeleno.
Millet has photographed four books, including The Well-Dressed Home (Clarkson Potter) and The Accidental Photographer: Dare to Do Something Different (Bellus Press), and is currently working on her fifth book.
