Cap Sizun, France – June 2022

For the longest time I thought that September was my favourite month. And I am not sure I have been totally converted, but man has this June has swayed my opinion by so much more than I could have ever thought. Even though it has been hot! Too hot actually ( yes, global warming is real, and yes every little bit you can do will help … ) I have been enjoying every minute of it. It’s hot highs, it’s rain storms, its heat waves, its humidity, its shady cloudy office days, and its sun.

Oh the SUN! Lorde’s song Solar Power has been in my head almost all month constantly. After 3 weeks spending 14 hour days outdoors, every day, I am reminded again how important this big burning star is to me. I have returned from my travels in Western France with such clear and golden brown skin. I feel reborn, and the Summer is just getting started ! Even though it has been an important month, it has not been an easy one. The things I have done and experienced this month have included many high highs, but also many low lows. And everything in between.

It was a month. I will tell you that. But now that it is ending ( and half of 2022 with it ! ) I am feeling at ease. You know the moments that you remember the most when you are older? Well I had a whole month of those moments. And I am happy and ready for all that lies ahead.

Below you will see where I spent 3 weeks of my time. A paradise of a place, on a farm in Western France with Thomas & Camille. So close to the sea, the sun, and full of quiet beautiful spaces. Places I visited include : Baie de Trepasses, Pors de Théolon, Plage de Sant Tujan, Village of Point Croix, The Market in Audierne, and great food & evenings at Kom’Home,

I will let these photos speak for themselves, I am out of words for the time being, and wish you all a safe, healthy, rejuvenating and beautiful summer ahead. Take Care of Yourself! Andrea

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.
