Every time I return to Paris, it’s a short but intense love affair. Ever since my boyfriend left the City of Light in pursuit of love in Vancouver, my travels to France have now become only a yearly occurrence - always timed with the Fall-Winter ready-to-wear shows in March.
What that means is that I no longer get to experience (read: enjoy) Paris in the springtime - and I do miss that. This particular trip was tough as it rained practically every day. On the day of my arrival, the rain showers were biblical and the entire city was just miserable and we were running around from show to show like drowned rats.
On the one day where the sun came out, the city was glorious - difficult for any other city to hold a candle to it. But when it’s cloudy and cold, like this particular day of my photo shoot, holding poses can become challenging to say the least. Your hair is swept up by gusts flying by and you’re constantly worried about the odd drop of rain - how long can you stay dry?
If there’s a silver lining, it’s that cloudy days make for amazing, moody shots. And with the Eiffel Tower majestically positioned behind me, you can be sure that any shot would be amazing.
