When I was brand new to this 🇫🇷 country, I was nervous to put myself out there. I’m happy to report that as time heals all wounds, I am much different now than I was back then. 😊Today, I am more confident and I’m proud of where I’ve come. Double-tap if you have a redemption story of your own… bonus points if you share with me below!
When will you know you MADE IT? Success comes in many different forms, but I’ll know that I’ve “made it” when I am published in @stylemepretty (I’ve emailed them several times!) 😎I definitely have big dreams, but I’m also perfectly content with where my business is today. 🌟Thank YOU for accompanying me as I climb to the top of the mountain of success!
One of the most wonderful seasons has arrived! Not only do the sunny days bring happiness to my life, but there’s only one other thing that summer can mean: 🏵IT’S LAVENDER BLOOMING SEASON🏵 Long caption alert: I would like to answer some common questions I often get about lavender season and tips for planning your photo shoot. 💡The very first question I get all the time is: WHERE are the lavender fields located? And, eventhough there is lots of information out there on the internet, as a local photographer based at Provence (the heart of lavender fields) I feel the need to go into detail: Lavender fields are located at Provence, especifically at the Plateau de Valensole since its soil and constant sun exposure allows the flower to develop in a better way than in other places in the country. Keep in mind that the Plateau de Valensole is in the middle of Provence, and this means you will need your own car to get there, BUT in my experience it is the place where you can get the best results which can later translate into beautifully unique pictures with endless rows of flowers as the backdrop. 👇 Continues on the comment section
🤗 What is one thing you absolutely can’t survive the work day without? For me, it’s my morning coffee☕ Once I have this, then I add my laptop, and get started with my day. What about you, friend? What can’t you survive the work day without?
When it’s this hot outside, what drink do you enjoy to cool down? 🍷For me, it’s a cold glass of my favorite rosé wine. It always reminds me of summers spent here in Provence. What can I say, I was always a hard worker! What’s your ultimate refreshment? PS: For those who might recognize the wine, yes, the picture was taken in one of my favorite lavender fields in Plateau de Valensole and this wine is from another region called Anjou, but hey.. you can't blame me once you've tasted it!
💡There’s something powerful reading this quote because it makes me fired up to work harder in my business and help my customers to have photos that preserve memories. What’s a quote that pushes you on?
🙋♀️I’m seeing so many gorgeous new faces around lately and feel like I should take a moment to properly introduce myself. I’m Andrea, a wedding photographer from Ecuador but currently living in the South of France (oh la la! les champs de lavande, oui). I prefer🍷rosé wine to red, 🏃♀️hiking to 🚴♀️cycling, and staying in to going out, but a sure way to make me smile is showing me a cute cat 🐱 picture. I’m so happy to meet you! I’d love to say hello and know what brings you this way 😊
There is no better feeling than the movement of life inside of you 😍 I am beyond excited and happy for these two lovely birds, as soon as I heard the news I couldn't stop smiling ❤ Congratulations @andrea.falquez810 🌟
