As we enter the 2nd part....


I wanted to take a reprieve from story telling to actually share the images from the trip, which was the purpose of it all to begin with. Michelle and I did a 2 day shoot. Day one was at the Homme Museum, which was the popular spot for tourists and even locals to take pictures at. We started a little late on day one. We were still trying to recover from jetlag, which is why we had a hard time getting up early, which was the original plan. We thought we could get up at 5:30 am to try to reach sunrise at the Homme Museum. But it was just impossible. Our bodies just couldn't handle it, especially with only 5 to 6 hours sleep since we got there. Remember we were up for a good 36 hours the day before?


Anyway, there were a lot of people when we arrived. Hannah wore a grey and sliver fitted gown with feather trim for the sleeves. It was a shame we arrived late, the place was busy! I wasn't sure how I was going to edit all the people out, which is why this set took me the longest to edit. Not only that, but there were wood panels on one side that covered half of the Eiffel Tower. I guess our timing was a little off. But nevertheless, the images turned out great!

We were lucky that despite there being rain in the forecast for that day, we had a little bit of sun in the morning. Towards mid day, it started to become a little overcast and it eventually started drizzling. We were at the Louvre in the afternoon, and we started to feel raindrops touch our skin. Hannah wore a pretty blue satin dress, paired with a white coat and floral purse made by Cascade Queen Designs. She looked very dainty and beautiful, she was even approached a couple of times by local French men who started talking to us to help improve their English. Our Uber driver even wanted to ask her out on a date, but we were leaving in two days!

As our trip was coming to a close, we had one last assignment. We wanted to take a few sunrise and elegant evening looks by the tower. Michelle and I even had a few images taken of ourselves. Are you kidding? We weren't leaving Paris without pictures of us by the Eiffel Tower! Here's the first batch of our sunrise shoot! We all looked ooooh la la!

As we headed into the evening, we had Hannah change into a sparkle red long dress and wanted to take a few dramatic evening shots with the Eiffel Tower lit up behind her. I was saving this for story time, but I'll mention briefly that we saw a few tourists defying traffic in the middle of the street and just standing and walking in the middle of the road trying to get the best shot of the Eiffel Tower in the background. So we thought to ourselves, why not? So we took one shot of exactly that, and headed on over to the original plan of going down the stairs to the Seine. Be sure to stay tuned for the details of how we got the road shot in the next post!


Evening shots are just the best. They are so dramatic, we were so happy we picked the perfect spot with the river in the background. It was a nice place for some serenity and perhaps enjoy a little picnic with a view.

I guess this concludes the photo shoot portion of story time in Paris, be sure to stay tuned for more adventures! We have lots to tell!
