good morning and happy sunday all! it’s a bright and early morning and another chance to have a great day. sometimes that means lounging around and other times it’s getting out into the world and exploring. i came across this montage yesterday and it’s been on my mind ever since. there really is nothing like traveling is there?
it cures what ails us, sheds a different light on the world, makes our problems seem trivial and connects us in a way that only being there can do. i know myself well enough to know that wanderlust is coming on strong and maybe it’s time to book a trip. do you have plans this summer?
well so, even if we stay in one place we can still create something out of nothing! have a beautiful day where ever you go!
good morning mes chers amis! it’s a gorgeous brisk day in nyc. i came in last night to spend the weekend with friends and family.
we’ve been in and out all morning getting the apartment cosy and stocked.
for the next little while i’m gonna just do what i wanna do which is chill and say hi.
(tulip fields in holland above and below)
i’m enjoying having a clean slate for a minute.
i spent some time between emails on pinterest and have been checking out the likes i’ve been saving
you know how the likes are…no real home and rarely looked over. anyway here are a few non sequitur shots from today.
apparently i’m feeling color
anyway now it’s not morning anymore and it was when i started this so it’s time to get back to reality. and so, tomorrow. till then i bid you adieu. have a glorious day!
ps thought you’d enjoy this!
hello and happy sunday guys! hope you’re winding down a great weekend. it’s been a day of rest around here and that was both needed, good and lazy. best of all i had time to surf and started looking through the day’s loot. you never know what you collected till the end of the session and see it all together.
there was so much pretty stuff i pretended to make a little apartment for myself.
please indulge me and enjoy a tour!
well it was great having you over and so it’s off to bed. we have a crazy busy day with an early am call time tomorrow. lots of grunt work but still i’m looking forward to it. and now, have a good night and a great monday!
good morning gang! how’s your week going so far? we’re running around getting ready for a photo shoot on friday and monday.
in the meantime we’ve got to shoot at home a little but even though it’s filled with pretty things it’s sort of hard for me to capture what i want in my own place.
fortunately there’s an endless source of inspiration out there! i think you know where i go by now but if not…it’s pinterest! i’m studying the creativity of the settings combined with the science of photography and hopefully will come up with some good images of my own today.
till then, i hope you get that magic shot if you’re after it too…and pin it! have a great day!
hi guys happy sunday! i hope you had a great weekend and are about to embark on a nice long night. we’ve been busy running around all week and today was a relaxing respite. i cracked my laptop lid for the first time in what seems like an eternity just now. instead of surfing around i’m stopping on the very first bit of beauty in my inbox. i can’t keep this photographer’s work a secret since her images of paris are so bright and cheerful and getting her newsletter is completely inspiring. hope you enjoy her work too! well, i’m off to squeeze in a little more downtime, have a great night!
hi all! how’s your week going? it’s hard to believe but we’re still going strong. i think tomorrow will be the last of it. whew! of course lots of other thing are going on, not the least of which is this gorgeous photo that we’re adding to the boutique taken by mandy of a la parisienne. i love the way she coated the powder on; so thick and decadent!
i wasn’t sure why i love powder puffs so much till tonight. it hit me how we used to pluck them at the stem right off the mimosa tree at my grandmom’s house. we powder-puffed all the live long day. those were the days. these are too! hope you’re having a great night and sweet dreams!
good morning guys, happy monday! i’m forcing myself to sit and blog in the spare moment i have this morning. it’s 7:30am, nice and quiet but we’re off and running to pack the last of our sale for the next couple days. we’re off on a road trip to get ‘er done which is over an hour away so we’ve got to get going to beat the morning rush hour. we’re starting to see light at the end of the tunnel which is promising but till it’s blinding, i won’t consider us there yet! have a great day and hope you enjoy whatever project you’re working on whether just starting or wrapping it up!
good morning gang, how’s your week going? i have a photo shoot in an hour and finished the big job hanging over me. i treated myself to some pinterest time last night and found a smattering of simple pics full of inspiration.
it got me thinking about what makes a great shot. with all the visual stimuli over here lately it’s easy to fall into to the ‘more is more’ frame of mind. when i look at what makes a great pic it’s not always what’s in it but also what’s not.
what makes something memorable or at least noteworthy?
not complicated decor necessarily
or accessories or even flowers
clarity, purpose, a story
conveying something when nothing is happening
i’m going to simplify
not cram it all in
so i’m off to go and do
and try to make today aboutr doing less, not more. at least where photography’s concerned!
have a great day!
hi guys, good morning! i’m happy to say it’s still before noon! i just wanted to say hi and thank you for your sweet and inspiring comments yesterday! i’ve been messing around trying to shoot something ‘boudoir’ (when i’m not battling this spreadsheet that has to be turned in today)! (so, sorry it’s only one, mom :)!
ok gotta run, have a great long day!
happy monday guys! hope you had a great weekend. it’s already deep into the day but i wanted to stop what i’m doing for a sec before the day gets ahead of me and i’m not motivated anymore!
i see a pattern, that if i take the time to come here first, then my day is a little more fun and relaxed. something about blogging and seeing life in a ‘log’ helps keep things in perspective.
these are some shots the pro took the other day and i just wanted to share a few of them. funny cause now i’m onto the boudoir and these seem like they were shot a lifetime ago.
i’ll post more of chez moi later but thought you’d like to see some of the highlights from the other day before they get stashed in a folder till who knows when!
they’re actually going to be used in a book about what happens to stuff once it comes home from paris but more on that soon.
till then have a fabulous day with whatever you’re working on!
