Medici Fountain in Luxembourg Gardens


Luxembourg Gardens in Paris, France is a Parisian retreat. Parisians young and old come to hang out in this beautiful garden. You can play tennis, chess, or just relax in one of the green chairs. You can also purchase a wooden boat for an hour to push around in the water. A great thrill for young kids! This Medici Fountain can be found towards the entrance of Luxembourg Gardens.

The morning light in Paris


I found myself wondering the streets of Paris early in the morning for the best photographs and light. I passed by this beautiful street everyday on my walk home, I finally was up early enough to capture the morning Paris light in the Opera district.

Paris rooftops glowing at dusk


The top of the Eiffel Tower gives an amazing view of the city of Paris. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend sunset. The sun radiates a beautiful glow on the rooftops of the city of lights.

Full Moon in Paris


A few weeks ago I was walking to dinner in Paris. The sun was setting to the west and the full moon was shinning bright. A good friend taught me that a full moon is a sign of a new beginning. For this, I am always looking out for a full moon. This was the perfect opportunity to capture the full moon this night. The story behind this particular full moon is that a childhood friend of mine got engaged thousands of miles away on this night. She now has a copy of this photograph to share with her fiance and the start of their new life together.

Walking through Paris


I am working on a few collections of Paris photographs for a client and thought I would share a sneak peek with everyone. These are also available on etsy for anyone to purchase.
