On a previous post, I told you about this new series I wanted to start with Alma.
Here are the first test shots.
This is a series about the mother and the child.
Ever since, I gave birth to my son, I am completely fascinated by this bond. I can't put words on this incredible, intense, selfless, unique relationship.
I would like to photograph couples of mother and child whether the child is a baby or an adult. I can still remember how my grand mother was looking at my father: so much love and tenderness; and how happy she was when he was taking her hand.
It probably will not be easy, but I would be really happy if once in a while, I could capture just a glimpse of this relationship.
I knew I wanted to start the series with Alma, but I did not have any idea in mind. It was a rainy, gray day.
The beautiful daughters of Alma are not babies anymore, they are two effervescent, lively little girls who obviously did not want to sit quietly while I would try to find the good light, the good frame and focus my camera.
So it has been challenging, interesting and formative. I loved this photo shoot.
It was our first try, we will do it again soon.

My first interest in photo has been portraits. It still is.
I love shooting the people I love.
J'aime par dessus tout les portraits, photographier ceux que j'aime, capturer des moments de vie.
Tania est si belle et elle ne le sait vraiment pas. Je lui ai un peu volé ces images, mais elle aime ce qu'elles disent d'elle.

Solal will be back in a week (yes I am counting down days!).
But today I won't be sad because I am doing a few of my favorite things: taking photos and spending time with Alma.
Some music? sorry the audio is so bad but I love this version and this is the only one I found on youtube!

In the mood... for doing nothing, playing around with the computer. Next vacations are in August....
Pas envie de bosser, envie de glandouiller tout en jouant sur photobooth, envie de rentrer à la maison, de dormir, envie de cuisiner pour la p'tite bouffe entre potes de ce soir.
Suis pas follement productive aujourd'hui....

On the last photo, there is my new cup, present of my son. Needless to say, this is my favorite cup ever.
I can't wait to see inside of your bags too!!!!
A few replies to your comments:
Trust me: it looks much messier when it's all in my bag
Yes I always have a few coins in the depth of my gigantic bag
I do have an umbrella but only when it's not raining
The wallet (as well as the bag) are from Aridza Bross
The owl bangle like most of my jewlery comes from Medecine Douce.

That's what is inside my bag:
Ipod, Iphone, oversized wallet, sunglasses (kind of silly because I live in Paris and it is always gray), at least one camera (more often 2 and sometimes 3), my make up kit, my son’s and my passeport, film rolls, some jewelery (this one is my owl bangle), a book which I never have time to read. Sandra Juto’s wrist worms and tissues.
If you want to play along or to see other bags: go to Dos Family.

I love the packages I receive with the mix CD!!! They are all wonderful and make me smile! But I feel very bad too because I ran out of postcards and time and basically just sent the CD with the list of songs. I promise to do it again soon and to send you much nicer packages (even your envelopes are beautiful!!!). I just have to plan this when I have a little bit more time (if it ever happens ;))
