I thought I would share a little of my morning yesterday in a beautiful room in Paris as I prepared for a shoot. There is nothing so exciting as waiting for the star to get ready!

I look forward to sharing this fab shoot with you in the coming weeks.

Have a great weekend full of love and inspiration.

    That’s fun to see backstage, Carla. Can’t wait to see mystery woman in that wonderful dress…

  5. Hi Carla, WOW, what a beautiful apartment. The blue on blue is gorgeous. What a photo shoot set. Just found you because your comment was above mine this morning on San Francisco Girl By Bay. Glad I found you… to explore.

  6. Anita Rivera says:

    WOW. Everything PARIS always has an icon style, but when a good photographer (like you!) gets there hands on her, Paris just lights up in the smallest corners. Like poetry, photography finds the every day things and elevates them through your unique lens and perspective on the world.

    Lovin’ the Paris blues today!

    Thank you Carla for coming to visit! Anita

  7. Liz Thomas says:

    I absolutely love that dress. I can see it hanging very happy in my wardrobe, although it may not be so happy away from the romance of Paris. Can’t wait to see the shots.
