Easter in Lorraine – April 2015

Dear Friends

I have heard so much about the “Chateau de Villé” for years now from my boyfriends family and have always wanted to visit. Such historic castles scatter the French countryside, some of them almost standing still in time, from when the soldiers abandoned them after WWII. I was so lucky to be able to visit one of these places. A small castle that has been owned by and lived in by the same family for many generations. This Chateau was originally build in 1608 and has been be re build and renovated many times since. The Easter holidays gave us the perfect time to visit this enchanting place. Villé is located in Lorraine which is in the North-Eastern part of France and is full of green rolling hills, old deep forests and a beautiful history. Unlike other parts of France this area is full of very simple farmers, hunters, fisherman and small villages. Some of my favourite things! I was blown away when we arrived on a crisp clear night after a long drive down the many windy roads. The moon lit up this charming multi family home and welcomed us in. I was astonished at how we stepped back in time to such an enchanting place. While there I enjoyed long walks through the deep woods was attacked by territorial geese!  I ate many fresh crossiants and the chocolate eggs I could sneak away from the adorable French children :)  Thanks to the Delaage and de Ravinel families for inviting me to such a marvellous place. I hope to visit again.

My approach to photography is simple and pure. I use only natural light to create an image; and work hard to develop an artistic photo, whether it be for a client or as a self project. I do not care about staging shots, excessive make up, and set ups. I capture what is there, with love for that special moment. With an advanced diploma in photography from Canada, I choose to follow my dream to work as a freelance photographer. With over 10 years in experience, I can capture your special moments, smiling faces, products or food in a simplistic, colourful and uncomplicated way. I photograph with my heart and believe in sustainability, conscious consumption and responsibility. When you book a photography session, purchase an image, or participate in a workshop or retreat, you are supporting social organizations and projects. I run my small business on green electricity, all print material is climate-neutral and supports other charitable projects for people and the environment. This is a very important concept for me to follow. Every daily decision and choice we make, has the potential to create a cleaner and happier community and world. If you are interested in purchasing fine art photographs or my cookbook, hoping to have images taken or just want to connect, I am happy to make a new friend.
