Excited to be sharing with you some photos of the beautiful fashion blogger and writer, Alexia P from Pascal Et Al seen in our previous Paris photos. I feel so overwhelming blessed to have captured the iconic beauty of the Louvre in my photography.  Distinctively remembering it being quite overcast when these photos were taken and vaguely remember my feet being extremely wet (I think my canvas shoes had been soaked through the day before while in Disneyland resulting me to be wearing flip flops on the beautiful streets of Paris, and trust me, NOT my ideal situation! ).

 I always love my photography collabs with Alexia, such a stunning beauty and an all round amazing lady, its always so so amazing, may it be in Paris, Melbourne or any where else in the world!

Today I was helping my dear friend, Alex understand the concepts of photography (explaining ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture isn’t always the easiest) and am now inspired to share some photography tips with you guys!

Photography Tip #1: Learn to shoot with natural light.
Natural light is the best lighting to get those dreamy portrait photos (and my favourite type of lighting!) Experiment by shooting the same subject during different times of the day to practice adapting your camera settings to specific lighting situations.

Let me know how you go!

Sending our love to you
