After photographing Paris for a long time it’s always nice to photograph something else for a change. Don’t get me wrong, I love having Paris in front of my lens but sometimes it’s nice to get a break from each other too. That makes me appreciate the my own city even more once I’m back again. Anyways, one of my favourite cities to photograph, besides from Paris, has to be Rome. It took me a while to decide on how I wanted to portray this city when I visited this summer (I think each city can be photographed in such different ways) but in the end it was those warm, orange tones that won me over. It’s one of the things I love the most about this city and what comes to mind when I think about Rome.
There’s nothing like strolling the streets of Rome in a simple dress, with my camera in one hand and an ice cream in the other. I’m seriously starting to contemplate moving there for a month or two. Wouldn’t that be something? Learning Italian while exploring this amazing city. But I guess I should master my French before I move on to another language, right? Well, it’s on my list of things I would love to do someday.
On the day we arrived in Rome I had booked a vespa tour around the city for my mom, sister and myself. As you might remember I scootered around the Italian capital together with the lovely Annie from Scooteroma Tours this summer, but I had to do it again so that my mom and sister could experience it as well! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s one of the most amazing ways to see this beautiful city. We had so much fun, ate way too many delicious supplìs and laughed so much my cheeks hurt the day afterwards. I could have stayed on the back of this cute scooter during the whole night if they would have let me! It’s a must if you’re going to Rome anytime soon.
I’m terribly sorry for falling off the radar completely during the last couple of days but it was so nice to just forget about the computer and internet all together for a few days and enjoy spending some time with my family in Rome. Fortunately we got super lucky with the weather and we were able to stroll around the city in dresses and t-shirts during our stay, which was just what the doctor ordered after grey days in the Parisian rain. I already want to pack my bags all over again and return tomorrow… There’s something special about that beautiful city.
Now I’m back in Paris, and just in time for my birthday! But before I share more photos from Rome and our mini vacation, I’m off to a cosy birthday breakfast with friends. Mmm! Hope you all have a lovely day.
This weekend I’m off to Rome! Even though I was there this summer, I can’t wait to go back. I’ve missed this city so terribly much — the food, the people, the atmosphere. But the best part? I’m meeting my mother and my sister there to celebrate their birthdays (as well as my own birthday which is next week) who I’ve missed terribly much as well. I can’t wait!
Before we leave Milan behind completely and move on to Paris I wanted to share a few last (exclusive) photos from Italy. After a long day of meetings and shows Nicole and I came back to our Milan apartment, but before getting changed for the evening I wanted to capture this beautiful white lace Roberto Cavalli dress on her. Our balconies got to serve as the backdrop and as soon as the sun started painting the sky in warm pink, red and yellow tones I was in love. I have to thank Nicole for bearing with me, trying all my annoying ideas and being the most amazing photography subject anyone could ever ask for. I can’t believe I’ve had the chance to travel the world for a month, doing what I love the most with such a wonderful friend.
Even though I absolutely loved Milan, I have to admit that it was kind of hard shooting in this city… There are gorgeous places in Milan for sure but when you don’t know the city all that well it can be hard to find them. This was the exact situation Nicole and I found ourselves in quite often while there unfortunately, and with limited time in between shows and meetings you often have to be quick and think on your feet. So when we found this adorable little flower stand after the Roberto Cavalli show that matched Nicole’s Red Valentino outfit so perfectly we were just over the moon.

I’m happy to share the second part of photos from Milan fashion week with you all. I’m already longing to go back, I indulged in way too little pizza and gelato while there so I definitely need to plan another visit to Italy in the near future! But getting to hear the Italian language (which is one of my favourite languages ever) while shooting, going to fashion shows and running in between meetings was something I that made me smile. I have to say that Milan fashion week certainly was one of the best in my opinion. The people were lovely, the food was amazing and the fashion absolutely fantastic. Above you’ll see a few photos from the Just Cavalli, Roberto Cavalli and the MSGM show.
After the Alberta Ferretti show in Milan the sun was starting to set over the city and before Nicole and I knew it the street we were walking home on was lit up by this magical golden light. Shooting backlit is something both of us adore (which I’m sure you’ve probably realised by now after seeing this, this and this for example) and this time was no different. There’s just something about those soft, golden rays of sunshine…

Gelato, stunning gowns and beautiful buildings are a few of the things I managed to capture on Instagram during my days in Milan. Hopefully I’ll get to come back to this city soon again. Now the fashion month is officially finished and hopefully I’ll have a chance to recharge during the next couple of days, but I still have so much I can’t wait to share with you all!
