Over the past couple of years I've done several lifestyle portrait sessions with my friend Rebecca Plotnick, an American photographer and Etsy prints shop owner, who has made Parisian lifestyle into art in her Every Day Parisian blog. A full interview with photos from three of those sessions you can now find on www.iheartparis.fr Paris Guide section of the blog. But I wanted to share with you here a smaller selection of my favorite shots of Rebecca captured last spring during the cherry blossom season.
The locations we chose for this shoot are the area on Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis around Notre Dame Cathedral with the little cherry blossom park and view of the Seine river, with a mandatory coffee stop at cafe St Regis. The Last few shots featuring the Eiffel Tower are captured at Trocadero and at Avenue des Camoens, which is most commonly referred to as Passy, finishing with another coffee (you can never have too much coffee in Paris) at cafe Carette.
On cherry blossom shots and on Trocadero Eiffel Tower shots Rebecca is wearing BCBGMAXAZRIA little black dresses. Her classical black high heel shoes are from JCrew.
