  1. How amazing would this be! A photo shoot with you Carla has been on my bucket list for quite some time now! Fingers crossed xx

  2. Rachael says:

    Hi! I would love to feature this post on my blog, can I include this amazing image in your post? (Of course, all credit will be given to you!) I’m so excited about this!!

  3. Stacia Wright says:

    Hi Carla, yes I know we have already done this with you and had such a fabulous time,and have some wonderful images too. But second time round would be truly amazing. This time we would really glam it up and having an idea what to expect it would be so exciting. And how wonderful a reason to visit Paris again and share your gorgeous company.I hope we win! Stacia and Warren x

  4. Sophie says:

    Carla, dear, I’m definitely putting my hand up for this one and will keep my fingers and toes crossed! As much as I love taking photos of others, I’ve always avoided having my own photo taken – just ask my children :)
    What’s changed? I turn 60 (can’t believe I just typed that number!) on 8 December and in January I made a commitment to myself to affect change in every aspect of my life – more importantly my health, and I’m very proud of the results so far. So, I not only want to mark this milestone, but to also celebrate a year of rediscovering myself.
    I’ll also be in Greece from 7 Sep – mid Oct, so timing would be perfect! :)
    Here goes … xx

  5. Melissa Bauernfeind says:

    Shared, subscribed and liked. We’ll be in Paris in 3 weeks. We’ve been planning this trip for 8 months and have been so excited but my dad just passed away a few days ago. I’m hoping this will be the distraction I now need.

  6. Bea says:

    What an amazing price I have subscribed and shared and now will sit back and dream of Paris wondering how it would feel to be photographed in one of the most amazing cities in the world. More amazing would be to have the photos with one of my daughters. Thank you for your beautiful blog

  7. Lisa Morales says:

    Did it all…fingers crossed, turning 50 in Paris this year!

    I guess I had too much fun in PARGI last October………..IT WAS WORTH EVERY EURO SPENT!

  11. Diane Peters says:

    My 20 year-old daughter is studying in Paris this summer (her dream!) and we are all going to visit her. Paris is her favorite place on Earth and your photography is SO gorgeous – this would be such an incredible experience for her! Hoping for the best!

  12. Colleen says:

    I have plans in the future for you to do my portrait. But first I want to lose 50 pounds. I’m going to Paris again in May but not ready yet — maybe next year. I have been a follower of your blog for some time. Absolutely loved the portraits you did of Amy Manford. And I like the ones you do of older mature women — you bring out their lovliness.

  13. Philippa says:

    Liked, followed and subscribed….and so hoping to win! What a gorgeous prize :)

  14. Ashley says:

    Am I being dense, I can’t tell how to be sure I’ve entered. I’m used to these types of contests being done through Rafflecopter or something like that that confirms your entries. I just followed you on Instagram, Liked you on Facebook, and I am ready a subscriber to your email list. Your work is amazing!

  15. shari says:

    Carla ~
    shared all over the place. Subscribed too. Hoping & waiting.

  16. Kiki says:

    Oh how much I’d love to participate, if only…. Haven’t got a blog but only a site on Flickr photos, don’t do FB (a choice I’m glad I made) and I don’t even own an iPhone (although Instagram alone would make it worthwhile having one!)
    And therefore I shall just sigh once more and go on with my little life :)
    Thank you for your utterly generous offer – you are a ♥ (cuore, in case it doesn’t show up)

  17. Rosanna says:

    Yes , yes, yes
    Please Carla, count me in.
    I liked, shared and was already a subscriber but I redid it just in case….
    Thank you for this gorgeous chance and I truly hope to be so lucky to win.
    Good night, Rosanna

  18. Nicola says:

    hi Carla. Love getting your posts, first thing in the morning when I open my laptop, those quiet early morning moments looking at your beautiful photos are the perfect start.

    My eldest daughter is going to University after her exams finish, leaving the south of France and I will miss her so much…..what a wonderful memory it would be to have a portrait of us together to look at as well first thing in the morning …xx

  19. Kylie says:

    I love your photos – not sure that I should be in them but Id love to just go back to Paris – or anywhere really
    I have 3 kids & 2 are special needs so I spend my days covered in umm kid “mess” & running to and from therapy
    If you get to choose – Id love to carry ^Sophies bags – I just hit the big 40 but Im thinking 60 and changing her attitude to life needs to be captured for posterity
    As long as there’s a very detailed blog with heaps of shots so I can live vicariously id call it a win all round

    Keep capturing the beauty for those of us who have to find it in the smaller things


  20. Leeann says:

    Merci for giving us all the chance to win such a great experience.

    amicalment, Leeann x

  21. Murissa says:

    This would be a dream come true. I am going to Paris in June/July of this year celebrating my 27th birthday there on June 27th. This would be the ultimate way to capture a timeless city during a very exciting time in my life!
