so, i’ve been back for a couple of weeks now…and i am just starting to feel like myself again….for a while it felt as though i was suspended in two different universes….one full of long beautiful days, endless croissants and photographs & amazing people…the other a blur catch up & ketchup, clients & children….so as my jet lag subsides & i begin to explore the forest of photographs from france, i am ready to share….share my gratitude to all the amazingly talented & creative people who came together to make france & the lovely workshop such a once in a lifetime experience…and of course i am ready to share my photographs…and i warn you there are many….so over the coming weeks i will be doing posts that highlight the different designers & artists that collaborated with me…and i will be doing a series of wonderful giveaways….so sit back & relax…and come share my dreams….bon voyage…
