Cynthia + Arnaud

A Couple Shoot at an Abandoned Area Close to Paris

Jean-Laurent Gaudy, the author of this series of pictures is one of my favorite French photographer. We got to physically meet last November, and he and his lovely wife Caroline (who owns a blog at littlecrazyme.com) quickly became friends. A few weeks ago, he was looking for a couple for the one-to-one session he was going to have with Willy Brousse and kindly thought about Marcio and I. I was back then 8 and a half months pregnant, hence maybe not his best option, but my sister and brother-in-law (whose wedding you may remember) volunteered and I have to say that when I saw the result, I felt quite jealous! I couldn’t resist showing you a little extract, I hope you’ll like it as much as I do!

As I said before, those pictures were taken by Jean-Laurent Gaudy; he’s currently living close to Paris, but is leaving us to start a new adventure with Caroline in New York City. I couldn’t but recommend him if you or your friends are looking for a photographer there: he’s nice, takes good pictures AND has a lovely french accent!



Here’s about this session from my sister’s point of view.

I have to say Arnaud wasn’t all motivated at first – he even told our friends he was doing this for me! But then the day arrived, we met with Jean-Laurent and Willy and felt so comfortable that what Arnaud thought was going to be an effort ended up being one very nice moment we had for just the two of us, without the kids: we had fun, we cuddled (!) and spent time with lovely people… And well, I guess you can imagine our reaction when we actually saw the result!! As for me, as I told my sister, I liked Jean-Laurent and Willy so much I wish we were actual friends!
