A tea at Vanessa Sicotte’s house

21st April 2014

Hey friends!

Before starting our series called ” A tea with…” where we visit beautiful homes in Montreal and photograph great interior designs, Vanessa asked to do a test shoot with her own living room. Well, the challenge was easy for me because her house is the most cosy and gorgeous house I have ever seen. I must say I also adore her whimsical and colourful style. Have a look!

New and old blog

20th April 2014

Hey there!

Welcome to my new and old blog!

After a lot of thinking, I have decided to merge my personal blog and my photography blog. That explains the makeover of THIS blog. Do you like it? So, from now I will be sharing many stuff here: weddings, portraits sessions, fashion, home decor, business, also a lot of personal stuff.

Let’s face it, it was hard for me to separate my professional stuff from my personal stuff. My work IS my life because I am passionate about it. I started feeling like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hide, limiting myself to only post about photography on this blog and not sharing my personal stuff, or anything else.

Also, photography is not my only interest in life, and I want to be able to share my other interests here, with my readers, clients, friends, followers… whoever you are, I am grateful that you read my blog.

I will leave you with a quote that I really love.

Stay tuned!

A girly weekend in New-York City

19th April 2014

Hey!

I just came back from a girly weekend in New-York City with my friends Carmel and Chelsea. I did not bring my camera, I wanted to really relax and chill. I ate too much good food, walked a millions kilometers per day and I just want to go back because 4 days were not enough. NYC is exhausting but there is so many things to do there.

Here’s what I did in New-York City (in no particular order):

- Carmel took us to the Flower Market, we saw so many gorgeous flowers

- We found the gorgeous boutique of Dwell Studio in SoHo (did I tell you I am a huge fan of interior design and Catherine Lemieux is a star for me!)

- I had the most delicious gnocchi at Frankies Spuntino

- I have been to Brooklyn for the first time, discovered DUMBO, Red Hook, Williamsburg and Greenpoint

- I had the best key lime pie at Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies but I forgot to photograph it. ;)

- Carmel and I attended a calligraphy workshop with Laura Hooper Calligraphy. It took place in the cutest shop in DUMBO, called Dabney Lee.

- I have been to my first stand-up comedy show… it was interesting, not always funny but interesting!

- We had the best noodles at Momofuku

- We’ve been to the Amy Arbus exhibit at the Leica Gallery on Broadway

- Carmel introduced me to the work of the girls from Saipua. Their cute flower shop in Red Hook is so unique!

Toy cameras and film soups

19th April 2014

Hi friends!

It has been a while since I have posted about a coupon code for Blurb, one of my favorite website for great photo books. Today, let’s talk about toy cameras and film soups! Yep!

Toy Cameras and Film Soups with Giorgio Giusanni
Don’t ask photographer Giorgio Giussani how many megapixels his camera has or whether it’s a Micro Four Thirds or a DSLR. The Italian-born photographic nomad loves film. With a bag full of (mostly) plastic cameras and distressed film, he has chronicled London street art, the African plains, the Trans-Siberian Railway, the devastation of Chernobyl—and he’s made a host of vibrant-hued books with Blurb. We think you’ll be inspired to make your own book with Blurb. If you hurry, you can save 15% on all printed orders through April 30th!
