  • Fred & Wade, teaser

  • I couldn't let an other day go by and not post just one picture of my good friend, Frederique with her fiance, Wade. I have known Fred for a very long time (she loves to remind me the exact number of years, which never fails to freak me out, to her delight). She's my only friend from France, living here. We met in 10th grade, we were in the same class, in a very unique school, "la Legion d'Honneur", an all girl boarding school created by non other than Napoleon. The school was to be attended [...]
  • Vegas workshop

  • I'm finished working on my "Vegas" folder, and here are the remaining images. These were all taken around the Venetian hotel. Now that I've seen the true Venice, I'm a bit of a snob, and even though it's a very expensive structure it is no match for the beauty and elegance found in Italy... Beautiful Bhavana, I couldn't stop photographing her. Serena and her husband, Tiffany, Nancy in her gorgeous wedding gown, As the night fell, so did the temperature. I've notice [...]
  • Boneyard in Vegas

  • It's been a week since I've returned home from Vegas and I'm getting my footing back. The WPPI experience was so exhilarating, and the trade show a wealth of new products. Before my routine settles in I'm trying to put in place the different goals I've lined up for my business. I know how these things work, if too much time goes by, we tend to loose the drive to make things happen... I have some pictures to share, these were taken at the "Boneyard", it's a retirement home of sort for big neo [...]
  • Back home from WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Professional International)

  • I always wondered what the big deal was, why so many photographers became sooo excited come the annual convention in Las Vegas. This year I was one of 12000 photographers to attend the event, and now I understand. I used to think that maybe they just all wanted to party, that maybe it had to do with the location... I know Vegas is not the draw, the city, although amazing (it's just one of those "out of this world" experience), certainly isn't one of my favorite spot. It's the convention itsel [...]
  • Star trails

  • I LOVE photography!! Seriously. There are so many different fields in the vast world of photography, so much to explore and to learn. One simply can not ever tire of it. Up until a couple weeks ago, I had no interest in "landscape" photography. The honest reason is I'm not good at it, I see landscape as a backdrop for a successful portrait session. The backdrop itself, I used to find very boring on its own. Thanks to one of my clients (thanks Doug), I've met this amazing landscape photogr [...]
  • Flying Coco

  • A little update on Coco. I'm totally enamored with my little dog. She does the funniest things and I thought I would share one of her moments here with you. Whenever she's outside and I call her back home, she runs super fast and turns into superdog mode. She just about takes off to jump a tinny little step, I'm afraid she doesn't time her take off right, she always lends barely on the edge of the step. It's a HUGE leap, it's so funny to watch. Today, I decided to document it, it was trick [...]
  • Proud Mama!

  • I've got a morning routine. In order to start the day, work, things need to be in somewhat of an order around me, beds made, kitchen cleaned up... This morning in my frenzy to clear the clutter away, I nearly tossed a master piece. A little homework sheet from kindergarden that made its way to our coffee table. The artist is my youngest, Olivia, who really at the moment seems genuinely drawn to a hairdresser carrier, but says she wants to be like her maman ...a photographer. This little dr [...]
  • Freezing in Pensacola

  • It's still super cold!  And I'm loving it.  I know I'm a little overjoyed by such weather trivia, but this is highly unusual for Florida.  We go cut a Christmas tree in T-shirt and shorts sometimes, so I treasure the few winter days we have.  I guess I really miss having all 4 seasons. Some simple facts, which should help you understand why I'm so happy with our latest low temperatures: The air is crisp, washing away the humidity and making the visibility so clear and infinite.  So nice f [...]
  • Bonne Annee et Bonne Sante a tous!!!

  • My last post for this year, to wish everyone a very happy New Year. Time flies, it doesn't seem that long ago when I went to school and all the kids were excited about 1980! I didn't quite understand why all the fuss, then there was the new millennium, that really feels like yesterday, and now we are already about to start 2009!!! Wow, it's going by too fast. I see my children grow, too quick. No matter how determined I am to enjoy every minute with them, I end up caught up in everyday life [...]
  • Shiny Brand New Apple

  • YOOWOO!!! I've got a new computer: a beautiful huge screen apple, latest technology, clean lines... I spend the last week working on switching from my old computer to this little beauty. I've had some stressful moments, lots of pacing aimlessly around the house and lots of intense stares at the computer willing the little progress bar to speed up some (totally useless). It was mainly all the transfer of data accumulated over the past year from one drive to an other that had me edgy. Hitting [...]
  • Venice Slideshow

  • Finally, I committed to putting together a slideshow from my trip to Venice, under Yervant's mentoring. I will keep some fond memories from the romantic city, the new friends and the lessons from world wide renown photographer.
  • New York New York

  • I'm just returning home from a 4 days escapade to New York with Henry. He started running for marathons 2 years ago, with originally for goal to qualify to participate in the Boston marathon. He has been dedicated to a strict training regimen and has surpassed his highest ambition. At the same time his goals are shifting and he raises the bar for himself after each competition. This time, hoping to set a personal record at around 3:23, he surprised himself with an amazing time of 3:12. Of c [...]
