She was standing, barefoot, in the Tuileries in a twirly, tea-length skirt. The sun was setting, and true to Paris, it was dreamy. I love good, flowing skirt, but what stopped my scroll was the camera in her hands. A funny-looking fellow, two lenses, held gently in her hands as she peered down into the […]

Lilla and I are old friends. We used to sit on her bedroom floor, dreaming big dreams, during the endless hot summer days. One we always shared was an escape to Paris. We called it the Paris Apartment. Beyond the fact that we’d have an apartment, I’m not sure we organised many other details. Paris […]

Coucou mes amis! Bonne année! There are some changes I will make this year to my blog. I want you to have the scoop! First, I will still be sharing client work. That’s one of the reasons this blog exists. I love sharing the stories of those who are in front of my camera! Secondly, […]

2019, you were an unexpected one. You were beautiful, joyful, heart-wrenching, terrifying, and filled with grace. You were everything I imagined, and many things not. Now that you are gently fading, it’s time to say goodbye — and merci! Some months ago, perhaps even at the beginning of the year, when it was bitter and grey, […]

I so enjoyed doing this Paris portrait session at one of my favorite Eiffel Tower locations for this INCREDIBLE family I have had the pleasure of knowing in Paris. The kids were SO good despite the fact that it was FREEZING. Everyone looked lovely; outfits were on point; and yes, there was candy afterwards. What […]

Being young in Europe has its perks. Amongst them: Free visits to national monuments. I took advantage and climbed the Arc de Triomphe on a sunny fall day for some skyline photos. One of my favorites is actually of La Défense — the “Wall Street” of Paris and often forgotten. There’s not much to do […]

I’m so happy to share a handful of images from a styled shoot I did with Texas-based Hey Lovely Makeup, headed by the most delightful Erica! She and a few members of her team — Kendall, Gabi, and Dee — are responsible for the most…dare I say, lovely…hair, makeup, outfits, and accessories. So giddy I was […]

A truck whizzed by me, the air pushing me ever so slightly closer to the edge of the already quite narrow shoulder. Frantically, I looked behind me, thankful that it now seemed the wave of vehicles had abated. Peddling slightly more desperately than before, I decided that this was the last time I would ever […]

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I decided to go to Saint-Germain-en-Laye, except that there was a castle (and not a very pretty one). However, immediately after stepping off the escalator of the metro, I probably said WOW at least five times. We walked right into the Domaine National de Saint-Germain-en-Laye and there […]

The train rolled into the station and I reached into my pocket, searching for my phone. I was already running late and it was a little drizzly, so I was trying to figure out what exit to take for Belleville. To my dismay, which turned to anxiety, I realised that in my rush to get […]

Paris strolls; looking for the best croissant; plenty of flowers; stories; and other adventures. I hope you'll come along and see my Paris!
