Musical advice to read the blog post: “Tulou Tagaloa” – Olivia Foa’i (from the movie Vaiana). And if it’s not enough to read all the article, follow with “An innocent warrior” by Vai Mahina (same movie)
When Florian contacted me to do a family photo shoot in Paris, everything went pretty fast. He, his wife and 2 sons were visiting for a few days to see their families and walk around. They live for quite a few years in New Caledonia (do you understand my choice for the music suddenly? 🙂 ), where the sun shines all year long and where you can dress in shorts all year long. But here in Paris at this time, it kept raining and getting cold. No choice for the timing, so I had some back up solutions if we really could not do this outside. Believe me or not, but I left my apartment, I arrived at the subway and saw the sky clearing and the sun coming back. I knew I was going to have a great time.
I join them in a cafe to get to know each other and we are off to the Royal Palace and its famous Buren columns. The place is quiet, few tourists are out, which leaves us space to have fun in these spaces usually so crowded. Florian’s mother, her partner and daughter-in-law are also there to complete the happy team. Unfortunately the weather of the previous days made few of the family sick, and they prefered to leave in the middle of the session, after having the time to make great photos all together.
We continue our walk in Paris with the little guy Elliot who is super smiling, very intrigued by my music too and who starts to sing and dance, taking the rest of the group with him, which creates nice moments of laughter. The walk ends at the top of the Tuileries Garden with stunning views of the Eiffel Tower, just for the beautiful sunset, and a crepe. I think a little star was there to watch the weather for us.
THANK YOU all for this moment, for trusting me from your island without ever calling me before. I hope to see you again, rather in a beach with our feet in the sand this time ?! 🙂
