I’m lucky, not only did I have the good fortune to shoot this beauty but I also had the chance to witness a generous gesture from a loving father to his beautiful daughter.

Liv’s gorgeous dad was fortunate to be photographed when a child by bohemian portrait photographer Ida Kar and he gifted a similar experience (love to think I am a boho photographer) to his daughter to record her year living in Paris.

So on an idyllic sunday morning with the sun shining and the world asleep the beautiful Liv, her gorgeous man Mark and my gang created these beautiful pics. It was a treat for me to have someone in front of the camera that was so relaxed, had such a playful nature and a beautiful heart. Hey, with a dad like that, it’s no surprise.

This last pic was the first one of day, I figured every young girl needs to remember being young and happy in Paris jumping on her bed!!

I adore shooting women of all ages but there is something so special about shooting young women, somewhere between teenagers and ‘who knows where’, to capture that fleeting moment in life when they may not know just how beautiful they are!

A huge shout out to James for this opportunity and his beautiful gift to me of a book of Ida Kar’s work, endless inspiration that now takes pride of place in my photography library.

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” Ernest Hemingway
