Last month I had the distinct pleasure of travelling with some old and new friends in the industry to my favorite city- Paris for a photo shoot. It was truly a dream come true for me!
Shooting took place over the course of two days. The first day I styled a photography seminar that was being put on by the talented Robert and Kathleen Trenske for a group of international wedding photographers. The shoots were coordinated by my friend, the ever creative Candice Dowling of Jubilee Events and a local wedding planner (and my new friend) , Kim Petyt of Parisian Events.
The second day of shooting Rob, Kathleen, Candice and I, along with our make up artist Masafumi and our model Segolene, took to the streets of Paris for a shoot inspired by the movie Amalie. We had an amazing time shooting in a quintessential Parisian cafe, in the metro and with a vintage car in the hills of Montmarte!
Below are some behind the scenes highlights of day 1 of shooting. We can’t wait to share the ‘finished product’ with you!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of travelling to Herradura, Costa Rica with a talented group of individuals to shoot for a Costa Rican organization called stay in costa rica.com. Stay in costa rica does things right and put us up in gorgeous home set on the property of Los Suenos Resort.
Our entourage included photographer, Carla Teneyck and several of her assistants, event planner, Candice Dowling of Event Jubilee and her assistant Diana, make up artist extraordinaire, DD Nickel, filmmaker Mike Cyr of Buzz Media and his wife Erica and floral designer and artist, Tony Pameri of Datura a modern garden.
