We took a holiday to Provence France, which as you can imagine is quite stunning this time of year. The sun shone on the wisteria crawling up the villas. The lavender, french greys and terracotta painted shutters on every building is just so…french!
Its a photographers dream, so we took a second week and turned it into a working holiday. We needed to submit some stock photography for a company we work for and what better excuse.
It really didnt feel like work ambling through the pretty villages snapping away. Infact, the area we stayed was so fantastic, we didnt even have to leave the garden some days to get some beautiful work. I always come back from the south of France, totally inspired and wanting to change the decor of our whole house. The colours their really make a impact on me. We would love to go back in the height of summer when the lavender is in bloom, but alas its also the height of wedding season and we are always far too busy here. Maybe one day we will get a wedding booking, over in France, in a lavender field! or is that just what my dreams are made of?
Anyway, it was so good for the soul and passion we have for colour , texture and landscapes. And it was just what we needed. Our cameras got a good workout, and we even witnessed a couple of weddings ( had to hold myself back from jumping out of the car and taking a few photos of the brides, they both looked so radiant.
Feel ready to get back into the swing of photographing people now, and Cornwall seems to have launched itself into Spring while we have been away. Different colours, different feel, but just as stunning and even more beautiful in a way only Cornwall knows how to do. As we turned the corner into St.Ives and saw the harbour and the sparkling blue sea, as always it took my breath away and I realised that wherever we travel to and whatever beauty we see and experience, my heart is always here in fantastic Cornwall, and its always so amazing to come back home.
We were busy right up until we left and we must congratulate Raff and Ruth and Kelly and Chriso, heres to you guys!!
