• Baby A

  • I recently offered a special promotion to an OBGYN practice: only 20 expecting mothers will receive a complementary newborn portrait session. I hope each one of them will take advantage of this opportunity. Fallowing are some of my favorite pictures taken during the first of these sittings. Baby A is only 11 days old here, and she slept the whole time I photographed her. She's just adorable and beautiful like her mother.I love it when they smile in their sleep.Little A's grandparents are bot [...]
  • Baby pictures

  • Here are a few pictures from a baby session. This sweet boy was around a month old and his grand mother called me to take some images as a surprise for her daughter in law's birthday. It was very touching to see how caring the dad was with his new little boy, I hope next time I'll get both parents behind my camera.Baby's grow up so fast, we're all aware that there is no time to even blink. There are a few stages that we should record with photography images, the first one being their first 2 [...]
  • Julie et Floriant

  • This beautiful wedding took place in my hometown, Aix-en Provence. The cermony and reception were held at Floriant's grand parents beautiful home. The ceremony was at noon, followed by drinks, then guests went home, meanwhile everyone was at work to transform the terrasse into a dinning and dancing floor. People returned later in the evening and probably partied all night long, by 10 PM dinner wasn't served yet, and the sun was on its way to set down. Marriages are somewhat different in Fran [...]
  • Valerie and Alexander

  • This french wedding took place in the south of France on July 14Th (national day). The location was beautiful with an unusual view of the mountain Sainte Victoire (Cezanne's favorite study), surrounded by vineyards, the weather was so pleasant and it even became cool as the evening progressed (nothing like steamy Pensacola!).I only wish I could have attended the workshops prior to their big day.
  • Bambi Cantrell and Jerry Ghionis wedding Photography workshop in Boston

  • Time flies!I returned home to the US barely 12 days ago and have already completed an absolute wonderful wedding photography workshop (again) with world top wedding photographers, Bambi Cantrell and Jerry Ghionis, and got my 3 children all situated with their first day of school today (big successful day for all 3!), let's not even talk about the loads of laundry and the scary huge pile of mail waiting for me after 7 weeks out of the country (although my husband did a great job of paying bills o [...]
  • Caroline and her children

  • Following are a few pictures from a beautiful family.  Caroline's parents are good friends of my parents, they're some of the sweetest people and always so much fun to be around. Unfortunately, the dad was out playing tennis when I took the pictures. The yard is just amazing, typical of the south of France, with gorgeous flowers and lots of little areas, a paradise backdrop for a family session.The 2 boys,Their dog, Jack, thinks he's human, once while sitting at their dinner table, I saw him [...]

  • Paris workshop 6

  • A few more pictures from Montmartre and in front of the Moulin Rouge,We bought so many tickets to each get a ride on the carousel, and take several pictures,Our last big "field trip" was to go to Versailles, unfortunatly we discovered they have rigid rules and it would have been impossible for us to use our cameras, beside the tourist flow would have been overwhelming.  Instead we went to Maisons-Laffitte's castle, which isn't all that popular, although magnificient, and we had the place just ab [...]

  • Pauline and Jessika

  • More picture of my super models,Boy, does she have a killer smile!I've been in France for 6 weeks now, and it's time for us to return to Henry, we all miss him terribly.  I'm very fortunate to have had a long visit with my family.That's it, I'll enjoy having these when I return to the US, I probably won't get to see them for at least a year, my brother and his family live in Africa.
  • Jessika and Pauline

  • These beautiful girls are my niece, blond, and her friend, brunette. After the Paris workshop I can't stay "tranquil" and I'm constantly looking around for subjects to photograph, so I hired Jess and Pauline for some practice, they did great and I had fun.  Here are some of my favorites,My mother dressed Jess with a tunique brought back from a trip to India,It seemed at first that Jess was a little camera shy, but she quickly warmed up,Pauline, on the other hand was much more comfortable in fro [...]
  • Paris workshop 4

  • Sherry and Rachel on the steps of Montmartre,The day started with some rain and when we arrived to our destination the skies cleared, we have been very lucky with the weather through the week.We took these close to the top, and again attracted a lot of attention among all the tourist. We stayed very conscious of pickpockets and as we took turns taking pictures we would watch each others back and never ran into any problems.One of our assignment was to photograph each other, one challenge being [...]
