Dear Friends,

One of the greatest joys I have as a photographer is collaborating with women to create private portraits and Personal Branding portraits for their fabulous business profiles. The last couple of years have been like sliding doors, one fabulous woman after another.

To say thank-you to my followers  and give back I AM GIVING AWAY A PORTRAIT SHOOT OR HALF-DAY PERSONAL BRANDING SHOOT TO BE TAKEN IN 2016. The portrait shoot will be on location in Paris and redeemable between March 20th 2016 and 30th November 2016 (on dates that aren’t previously booked by clients). You can have a look at my work here .

What does it include? It includes a hair and make-up artist at your service for you and your friend/mother/sister/daughter/partner, it includes a private shoot with me on the streets of Paris, being ferried around between locations and a lovely lunch! Oh and 10 fine art prints (8 x 10 inches) in a beautiful linen box. And a promise from me that you will look and feel gorgeous.

“Are you kidding?”, I can hear you saying, but yes, it’s all true.

PLEASE NOTE: AIRFARES AND ACCOMMODATION ARE NOT INCLUDED

Wow, what a wonderful giveaway, Carla! To have a photoshoot with you would be a dream come true.
Do we just click the ‘share’ button? It doesn’t seem to attach any photos on Pinterest.

Oh! Ca serait formidable!!!! What a generous offer, Carla. Je suis touchee. Thank you. If I win I would like to take either a friend of mine who’s going through a bit of a down period or my 83 year old mother. I can’t think of anything better to look forward to! Thank you once again.

This would be an amazing experience. I am just starting out on my photography journey but am always behind the camera, it would be amazing to be in one of your beautiful images and the experience of seeing you work would be wonderful.

What an amazing opportunity! To meet the author of Italian Joy, a book I first read in Italy and now have my own copy, to see Patis for the first time and to celebrate and record my fiftieth birthday, thanks for the opportunity to enter!

Hi Carla, Lisa’s joy has been such a gift to me too – the photographs are, in the true sense of the word, priceless! Your own story is inspirational and I feel a kinship with both of you having uprooted country and having started over doing something completely differently on another continent. I guess every woman dreams of seeing herself transformed to the best version of herself. …it will be the gift of a lifetime. Here’s hoping!!!

Dear Carla, such a beautiful gift. I wrote to you a few years ago to let you know what a huge inspiration you are to me. My plans were to open my very own real estate business, it has taken incredible courage to change, and now I am about to make this change. Wish me luck xx An opportunity like you are offering is every woman’s dream, and to be back in Paris and to meet you would be part of my dream.

Merci beaucomp Carla. I would love to give a gift to my single 37 year old daughter Samantha. She has wandered off her life path leaving a dream of becoming a Fashion Designer far behind her. Life has had its challenges for middle girl who cares more about her older and youngers sisters feelings than herself. PARIS would be be perfect start to get on track and share a unique experience with a fabulous free spirit like yourself. Sending you fondest regards from your devoted follower, Moira

My partner and I don’t have the typical love story, and we’re not traditionalists (no ring, no wedding) but sometimes I wonder what it would be like to try on some tradition. A couples shoot would be a incredible.

This would be a dream come true! As a fellow photographer, I am never in the photo and it’s time to finally update my personal branding and website. I have been a HUGE fan of yours for some time so this would be ahhhhmazing!

Maria Novajosky

Oh how delightfully perfect. I saw your last session with Lisa Chiodo, and the photos were so beautiful and natural. They were happy photos! I would love for my sister, Laura, and I to be able to participate. We each have three sons, so a little pampering is in order! Also, I’d just like to say that I always love your inspirational, seize the day, reach for your dream posts.

This would be the perfect experience and souvenir from my planned dream European holiday this year! Paris Tango inspired ????????. It’s my 1st trip back to Europe from Australia in over 11 years. Consider it regrammed and pinned.

I’m a newbie when it comes to the online world. After creating my brand Palmy to Paris in December ’15, one of the biggest challenges I face as a young writer & photographer is marketing my business – and feeling professional when I work from home! A personal branding shoot with you would not only help boost my business but shape my online identity as a businesswoman, photographer and Aussie writer in Paris. Needless to say, I would be thrilled to meet and be photographed by you!

Unfortunately I can’t enter the competition because of the dates which is a great pity because gravity is starting to play havoc with my body and face so I would love to be “branded” before I loose it totally. I am one of your many fans because your inspiring work, life journey and generosity.

Carla, this has been my dream- for a long time- to re-gain my health and have some wonderful portraits of myself- maybe even with my daughter and son. I don’t have any photos of myself since I don’t know when and never with my children. One day I wish for them to have something to look back on when I am no longer here! and in my beloved Paris- now that would be a dream come true.

Carla, I would love to enter this competition. I am already subscribed to your email and can’t seem to share this on Pinterest…any suggestions?
I am 37 with no lovely pictures of me…bit of an awkward face. But I’m always smiling and happy. My husband and I are in Paris in July. I hope we can enter for a chance to win. X Sarah

Are you kidding me?! This looks amazing and I would JUMP at the chance to be photographed over in Paris with you! What a brilliant giveaway! I’ve had my photography business for 8 years and have never felt like I had the ‘right’ branding and images of myself. Fingers crossed …

I fell in love with your opere d’arte since your book Italian Joy and follow you on Facebook and Instagram. You are like vitamin G for GIOIA… your words and your images truly capture gioia & amore. My best friend Barbara lives in Le Marche in Italy. It would be divine to experience a Parisian photo session with my bestie italiana and you. Tanti auguri e GRAZIE di cuore per le emozioni che ci regali.

Dear Carla, In 2012, I was so excited and looking forward to a photo shoot with you in Paris, with my family. As the day drew closer I grew sadder and sadder. I realised my dream of the happy family I wanted to see in your photographs could never be and I cried all nigh prior to the Sunday morning shoot. that morning I arrived that morning exhausted, emotionally drained and with very puffy eyes. The truth was I had been in an abusive marriage for 21 years and a happy family would never be possible with the man I… Read more »

I am so shy in front of the camera, and so shy taking any people shots that I think a chance to brave it and bare it all working alongside you Carla for a day would be an amazing learning curve. I would love to invite, if the winning chance arrives (!), my closest, oldest and dearest flat mate from 27 years ago at university in the UK. She lives 1.5 hours from Paris in Northern France and is one of the most generous, sisterly, giving people I know. She’s had a lot of hardships in her life and has… Read more »

What a wonderful giveaway! I admire your approach to work and life and enjoy following your travels as well. This year I am travel to Paris with my mother, she 64 & I 32, and I could not image a more enchanting experience for us to share. Paris won my heart years ago and I am excited to share it with my mother, the woman who encouraged me to always travel and be brave.

Bon jour, Carla ~ I have been following for quite some time. I already do subscribe via email, and follow on FB & IG. Shall I re-do all again, in order to check all the boxes?! Because I absolutely do want to win this beautiful opportunity! It is any girls dream come true – and a good dream for my man too! Life complications have a way of taking up too much dream space. I much prefer lofty, joyful dreams! A trip to Paris and a photo shoot with you are just the ticket!

Sincerely, Shari Nicsevic
