The Artist’s Voice: An Accounting of Miracles

I have an announcement to make and a story to tell, complete with an accounting of personal miracles. (I loves me some good miracles, no matter how big or small.)

First the announcement: “The Artist’s Voice” photography retreat I’ve had scheduled for this October at La Pitchoune¬†is now happening in a new format and a brand NEW location. We’ve moved down to the beautiful town of Cannes, right¬†on the Mediterranean. There are 3 spaces left!

Paris, 2015!

French Cravings

Do you ever get a craving that never goes away, no matter how much try to ignore it? It just tugs at your sleeve, clears its throat – loudly, hums a little French tune. No matter how many times you stage-whisper “Sssshhhhh!!”… it just smiles and keeps on humming.

Paris is like that for me.

I went there in 2010 for a voiceover job. I mean, how glamorous is THAT? For once, I can say it really was as cool as it sounds. It was a quick trip, not a lot of photo time… but the hubs and I made it count by staying out REEEEALLY late at night. We indulged in wine and chocolate at a romantic cafe on the Champs Elyssee at 2am one night after 8 miles of wandering – and photographing – our way through the streets of Paris. In December. At Christmas – in the City of Light. ¬†Ahhh, the stuff legends are made of!

Understandably, I’ve wanted to return every minute since. But I’ve had Spring in mind… and wanted another Perfect Moment event. Hey, a girl can dream!

So when my friend, photographer¬†Valerie Jardin¬†(a native of Normandy, knows Paris like the back of her hand!) invited me to come along to her Paris street photography workshop in May, 2015, how could I say no? I mean, really… how COULD I?

You already know the answer…
