Left Bank Light

3

Chasing the light has become a passion of mine lately. I will admit I have been known to cancel plans in Paris when I just didn’t feel like sitting inside when Paris was about to put on the most beautiful light show. The buildings literally illuminate with the sunlight. This one I call left bank light since that is where I found this beauty off the streets of St Germain.

The thing is I loved Chasing the light so much in Paris I created a whole collection around it. It will be a little while until everything is fully put together but there will be a sneak peak if you are lucky enough to live in Chicago. I will be at Wells Street this weekend. More details to come! xo

Paris Memories

3

One of my favorite memories of Paris last year was reconnecting with an old high school friend. He was working for an American company and was transferred to Paris for a few months. He found an amazing apartment in St Germain and invited me over to take a look. The place was top to bottom in white but the wrap around terrace overlooking the St Germain rooftops and Eiffel Tower were the best part. Lucky for me when I asked if I could photograph from his roof one evening he agreed. I collected a few pastries from Pierre Herme and met him as he ran home from work to meet me.

Simply breathtaking. We caught up about work different Paris restaurants we wanted to try before we both left the city. As the sunset the eiffel tower sparkled on the hour through his picture perfect balcony window. I am so happy to have this memory captured in my mind and through my lens.

St Germain Strolling

0

I woke up to rain in Paris. It surprises me how much rain can actually fall in one city… I walk everyday no matter what so I didn’t let it stop me. We luckily had a few hours of sunshine this afternoon where I strolled through Ile St Louis picked up some raspberry ice cream from Berthillon and made my way to St Germain.

I have talked about the season in Paris before but its really interesting to see the way the trees frame the architecture. In the Spring you will notice certain buildings because of the blossoms, in the winter the trees are bare and the architecture looks completely different. With the changing of the leaves my eye bounces from one building to the next as the greens and reds contrast the blues and grays of Paris.
