If You Are In Paris…

To be in Paris is the best feeling in the world… to be photographed by Carla in this beautiful city is something to remember… I have had the pleasure… she has taken several portraits of me for the books… There is something so girly about dressing up and playing in front of the camera…

Carla has a competition on her blog right now… you can win a portrait shoot for two with her… with professional hair and make-up… in Paris… in a beautiful hotel… This is an amazing opportunity … so if you are going to be in Paris in the next six months please enter… you will love Carla… and I guarantee you will adore your photographs… I have been friends with Carla forever and I have worked with her for many years… some of my happiest days have been those that we have spent together… taking pics and talking photography… She is an artist with the lens and she knows how to make women look completely beautiful… She has that ability to bring out all the loveliness, the femininity, the laughter… and to shake off any inhibitions that we might feel in front of a camera…

What better than a personal memento… looking gorgeous… looking glamorous … in one of the most beautiful cities in the world… xv

Oh Vicki, what a great offer Carla has going on! And thank you for always showcasing the most wonderful ideas for a French-filled life. Bisous, Anita

    Vicki Vicki Vicki – goodness gracious and a thousand other words – when I opened the email I thought to myself “who is this, wow” and then I realized it is you. Stunning and truly beautiful I thought the photo was of an actress or model I hadn’t know of. And all this time you’ve teased us with a tiny, passport sized (not even) little cube of a photo.

    I’m entering Carla’s contest.
    Guess what? Someone walked off with my copy of “My French Life” – perhaps they borrowed it and took advantage of me when I was a little too happy with champagne. One can’t exactly slip it into a handbag.

    I love what you expressed above. Must run or I’d say it better.

  7. She left the nicest comment for me the other day. I was beyond thrilled. And, isn’t this the best giveaway ever?

  8. Hallie says:

    Well now that I finished my comment and I checked out Carla’s link I realize what an “erreur” I’ve made. I still think you are beautiful. So there we have it!

    Dear Vicki,

    Thank you so much for letting everyone know about this very generous and exciting opportunity from Carla Coulson! Having been proposed to by my lovely husband 25 years ago on the steps of Sacre Coeur, Paris is very special to me. To have the opportunity to be photographed by Carla with my gorgeous daughter, would be a dream…..

    Have a lovely weekend.
