A portrait session in Paris!
Justin and Lindsey are two amazing people! We actually met them when we had dinner with the amazing Stacy Reeves of L’Amour de Paris and her husband Jason. Lindsey along with Stacy happen to be amazing photographers, fellow Americans but living in Paris, and just wonderful people. Lindsey’s business is Pictours Paris. Lindsey was kind enough to offer us some babysitting if we ever wanted it while we were in Paris working on our children’s book. We loved having Bear with us every moment of every day but thought how nice it would be to have a fancy lunch together, just the two of us. I emailed Lindsey and Justin and came up with a great idea. I wanted to know if she would like photos of the two of them together. As a photographer we all love photographs of ourselves but do not have the chance to regularly have our photograph taken. It just so happened that Lindsey and Justin were excited to have some photos and to watch Bear. I think all of us were winning on both sides of this proposition. I was able to photograph an amazing couple and have an adult lunch with my wife and they were able to have photographs and enjoy an afternoon with a fun little three month old! We could not have been more appreciative for the chance to capture these two in love in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The first photograph is actually the hall to get to their apartment. They even brought their little dog Oliver with them! We love dogs and who could say no to a cute four legged friend.
What more could one ask for but for the chance to walk in someone’s neighborhood with them. You get to see the nooks and crannies that make where they live special and unique. There is one nook in their neighborhood that is very dear to them both. It is only a couple blocks away from their beautiful apartment and this spot is never a sight for sore eyes. It is slender, tall, and made of a lot of metal. La Tour Eiffel is where work is, where rest is with a spring picnic, and where life together is for these two. When Lindsey told me how important the Eiffel Tower was in their everyday lives, I jumped for joy. It is important for pictures to be more than beautiful photographs but to have them tell a story of who you are at that moment in time. This next photo is one of my favorites from our morning together and really says a lot about who they are, where they live and what is one of the most significant things in their life today.
