Blue Mountains Photographer: DANCING FEET !'

Last week-end, I went to shoot a dance concert !
What a thrill for me because I absolutely love the dance side of it
(I always wanted to be a dancer but could never pursue one of those dreams and ...
didn't have the body anyway !)   
but I tell you also something ... I've got that thing about ... shoes... dancing feet
(I allowed myself to express this visually) so... those shots are for me LOL !

What do you think ?

Thank you for visiting and let me know what you think of those...
Have a fantastic week !

Blue Mountains Portrait Photographer: 'LESS is MORE'

Funny how simple things can make an impact just as they are...
'Less is More' so they say
and I do agree for this as well...

Simple things, simple background, simple lines...
Absolutely love that simple, fuss-free photo session !

(Merci Samy si tu passes par ici !)

Blue Mountains Portrait Photographer: Published in Photo-Book !

I always said that this year... IS my year... My year of making things happen...  I take the plunge... I set up this blog to showcase/promote my work.
Being self-taught, I learn even more from books, from magazines, from people, from my lows and highs... from what surrounds me... I am more confident in what I do  ... I shoot shoot shoot !!
and... I also get a buzz to enter competitions !

So...  My very first competition in a french magazine!  (I feel it is so important for me to keep my french background/connection on a creative level... well... we just don't know where life could take you huh ?) ...

Well .. I didn't win BUT... from 572 participants, I was so excited to hear that, I was within
the 100 selected and published in a book !! oh my goshh..isn't this a thrill or what ?!!! 
I love how the french do things, they always have good cause for things or competitions and this one is one of them: 
All the benefits received for the sale of this book (through Photobox will be going to an international solidarity association Aide and Action ( The financing brought within the framework of this operation will contribute to help increase the cause of “Education for all” in more than 15.000 schools throughout the world. 
How fantastic is this !
This book is conveniently available in 3 sizes and can be ordered HERE

Anyway, here is my entry  with the theme: 'Bienvenue chez moi' 
(translated to: 'Welcome to my home') 
a very interesting theme with so many different interpretations to it!  This competition made me realise that often, it's not how perfect is a photo (and anyway, to whose eyes is seen 'perfection'?) but more...  how you interprete it and how you explain your choice of photos...

What do you think ?

Thank you for your visit, your feedbacks/comments are always appreciated,  
I am very interested to know how 
YOU would react to this photo (considering the theme given)
I know... hardly 'welcoming' lol ! but I subtitled it: 'Hope'
I guess ...up to everyone to interprete it their own way

Have a fantastic week !

Blue Mountains Photographer: 'Gorgeous Cupcakes !'

I know... I love my portraits (to be able to capture a personality or a mood through my photography really is rewarding for me!) but it is not to say that I can't appreciate or shoot anything else ! 
In fact, I absolutely love my macro/close-up shots ! So.... I just thought to show you something different for this post...

Check out what was delivered to our door this morning... a scrumptious surprise !!  In fact so scrumptiously good looking things that... couldn't help taking some shots  ... before they all went !
I tell you what... they were as deliiicious as they looked LOL !!

Those yummy cupcakes can be ordered HERE

Thank you for your visit, your comments left are always appreciated :)
Have a fantastic week-end !!
