Sunday in Paris


Sundays in Paris are made for long walks and exploring courtyards after a coffee and croissant in the Marais and visit to the Bastille market of course. Currently I am day dreaming about being back in my favorite city while working on a few Paris themed projects. Summer shows are just a few weeks away so stay tuned for my schedule.

Pretty Peonies in Paris


The flowers in Paris get me every time! I would take this whole stack of peonies if I could…Image

Afternoon light at Jardin du Luxembourg


The afternoon light was beautiful yesterday as were the gardens in Jardin du Luxembourg. A great place for a picnic or to put your feet up with a good book.




A little about Me – American Photographer living in Paris



I have always loved Paris and would travel back and forth from Chicago to visit. I lived in Chicago in a lovely apartment overlooking the Lake and the Zoo. When time came to renew my lease I decided it was time to take a chance. I packed up all my belongings and with lots of help from great friends I made plans to move to Paris.

I found a tiny apartment with a beautiful balcony and I am now happy to call Paris my home for 3 months.


I am a photographer selling my photographs online all over the world thanks to the help of etsy 

My favorite way to see the city is by my daily walks. I am usually up early to walk the streets of Montmartre to pick up my baguette for breakfast. These usually last for hours as I nibble my baguette as I walk snapping pictures as I go. Its not unusual for me to walk from Montmartre to the Seine following the windy streets.

Favorite Arrondissement in Paris: 6th (Oden/St Germain) or the 3rd (Marais)

Favorite Market : Bastille on Thursday or Sunday

Favorite Cafe: Relais Odeon but still discovering new ones everyday

Favorite lunch spot: Avant l’Comtpoir

Favorite baguette/croissant : Au Levain du Marais

I absolutely love living in Paris and feel so lucky everyday! I am finding great places to eat and explore in Paris and I hope to share them with you through my blog.

Thanks for all of your support!

Happy Sunday from Paris


Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday


A run in with Karl Lagerfeld in Paris, France


I was on an evening stroll through St Germain des Pres tonight and ran into the extremely talented Karl Lagerfeld buying magazines. He was with a driver buying all sorts of magazines and newspapers outside of Cafe de Flore and then he waved and was off!






Paris Fashion Week 2013


I have always wanted to see a glimpse of Fashion Week in Paris or NYC. Yesterday I was people watching in the Tulleries and taking a walk when I stumbled upon Fashion Week! Of course I had my camera and I was able to capture a few shots. The show that was ending was Valentino as you can tell by the beautiful Valentino red color in some of the images. Enjoy!
