When you talk about dreams coming true, do you ever think about having a photoshoot at THE Eiffel Tower in Paris? Because, granted I am a photographer, but it was definitely on the top of my list when I visited!! Last week, I met up with my beautiful friend, wife, and momma to four, Nellie and her family for exactly that – a photoshoot in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower!!
Originally, Nellie contacted me to schedule a shoot for Christmas card photos. However, the rainy season in Sicily this fall was too crazy, so we ended up having to postpone. When we chatted about when to reschedule, she mentioned she was going to Paris for her 30th birthday and wished I could come for an Eiffel Tower shoot. And just like that, the plan was born, tickets were purchased, and we started getting excited for the big day!!
As I mentioned previously, the photoshoot took place the morning of Nellie’s 30th birthday. What an unforgettable way to ring in 30, right?! What’s more is that Nellie and her husband Joe had been to Paris together before when they were dating. It was incredibly special for them to return years later with their four children. I loved hearing their story, meeting their incredibly well behaved and ADORABLE children, and spending time with their crew on such a special day for Nellie.
I have to say, Nellie, Joe, and their family are some of the kindest people I have ever met. It’s so infectious. Thank you guys so much for letting me crash your vacation! I hope you had fun and love the photos!
