For years I had seen photos from the tops of Paris. For some reason I had only ever stayed sea level and below and never fully experienced Paris from above. I had been told of numerous different spots to see Paris from a few stories up but never took advantage of it. This past trip to Paris I decided to take full advantage of one of these known spots – The Galeries Lafayette. The Galeries Lafayette as a building is something to see. The gilded walls and blue tile dome are enough to make the trip and the crowds worth it but it is their rooftop terrace that really seals the deal. Accompanied with an 180 degree view, comfy seating, a cafe and a restaurant you are sure to spend quite a bit of time up there. Oh, and did I forget to mention the views? They are incredible! The Eiffel Tower, Champs Elyse, and Montmartre are all easy to see. All you need to do is grab a drink, a seat, and get your camera ready! This is a Paris must!
I have always been fascinated by photography. I have spent countless hours studying photographs of people, while considering the angles, the lighting, and the editing the photographer used. I love the fact that photography has the amazing ability to transport us to a different time, or place with one single shot.
It was not until I started blogging that I decided to take photography more seriously. With camera in hand, I started experimenting with photographs of my apartment, of friends, and family. It was after experimenting in this way that I realized my passion for photography. I have no formal training or background in this field, but I realize that passion can open your eyes to the impossible, so not only did I invest in the proper equipment I also spent the necessary time to learn everything I could to enhance the skill it takes to be proficient with this passion.
I enjoy, and appreciate the opportunity to photograph bloggers, couples, influencers who make an impact in their profession, families, and also lifestyle type setting. I take an individual approach to each person I photograph. I make every effort to embrace and highlight the focus of what they are trying to convey to their audience with each session.
I look forward to working together and capturing the potential magnificence of your moments through my eyes and the lens of my camera.
