I’m slowly making a come-back after a summer blog-break, and this is a special article. I already told you that this blog brought me a lot human-wise, since thanks to said blog, a number of people I met through it (professionnally or not) became great friends.
…Let me play among the butterflies ♬
Everything started 4 years ago, with a friendly professionnal email regarding my illustrator activity … In the following years we became friends.
A beautiful fraternal friendship that brought us together for so many great moments that we decided to capture it in a photoshoot.
We wanted to mix magic and yummy things (= our shared passion! haha)
I contacted Laura, that I had met during a portait drawing event for Swarovski last December. That day, she told me she had been following my blog since she was 14 years old (haha, that’s not making us any younger!) and shortly after, I discovered her work and her pretty poetic pictures.
…in other words, hold my hand♩
A couple of tripartite conversations and Pinterest boards later, we were all set for a shoot in May, praying for good weather – which was miraculously present!
I won’t talk about our “backstage moments”, in order to keep the magic intact, but know that we encountered a number of technical difficulties (… and mosquito bites!) to get the result you see.
We really tried to think outside of the box to overcome all our technical issues, but these two days will remain amongst the best memories I have related to this blog.
I hope you’ll enjoy the magical atmosphere of this shoot and that we somehow managed to visually transcribe our complicity.
…in other words, I love you ♫
Thank you Laura for your talent, your lovely enthusiasm, patience and general sweetness. This shoot wouldn’t have been possible without your vision. And thank you Lionel : I don’t need to write you why, you already know. (English translation by Marine)
