…share an engagement session worthy of the south of France: French macaroons, soft lavenders and pinks, dreamy evening light, and a couple swept up in the arms of their affianced. But what I love most of all as I look back on this session is that all of this pretty emerged from an evening of re-envisioned plans, with many of these hidden gems of locations discovered on the fly. 

Their stunning wedding day, which took place just three weeks later, is the only work I brought with me on this dream of a vacation. And somehow, it doesn’t feel at all like an imposition to stare at these beautiful images during our time away, with warm baguettes and freshly brewed café next to my computer, my sweet boys reading and playing in the shade nearby. The sea breeze is gentle and cool on my skin, the pace of life is luxuriously slow, and I’m surrounded by the sweet cacophony of french voices, clanging spoons, and my baby’s laughter. I have not a complaint in the world. xo
