If you have been around for awhile you know that Paris makes me feel like this…

It’s my most favorite city in the world and it’s been a year since I’ve been there and everyday a piece of me dies. (melodramatic much?)

I’m counting down the days until I return and I thought it would be fun to share with you what I would do if I only had one day in Paris.

Oh and splurge on some comfortable shoes, Paris is best seen by foot!

Location #1 – Sunrise at the Trocadero.

Here’s a tip: Be sure to get there early. I recommend 20 mins before sunrise. It gets crowded fast but it’s oh so beautiful.

Location #2 – Jump on the Metro and head to the Louvre.

I love the grounds of the Louvre early in the morning when it’s empty. The sun just bounces and reflects. Sit a while and soak it all in. It’s breathtaking.

Location #3 – Walk across the street to Palais Royale.

This is a favorite place of mine with the iconic striped pillars. It gets crowded here fast, so early morning is best for images. Photoshopping all those people out is a pain! Ha!

Location #4 – Breakfast at nearby Cafe

By now you will be starving, so stop at any of the cafe’s nearby. It’s never hard to find good coffee and fresh croissants in Paris!

Location #5 – Start walking the riverbank towards Notre Dame and stop at all the little book stalls.

I have found some amazing treasures over the years at these little stalls. It’s one of my favorite things to do in Paris!

Location #6 – Cross the river and buy at book at Shakespeare and Co.

I never leave Paris without a book from this sweet little old bookstore. Don’t forget to ask for them to stamp your book before you leave!

Location #7 – Start walking and just get lost…

It’s time to head back towards the Eiffel tower but take a few hours to get there. Just wander around the Marais district and Saint-Germain. It’s a shoppers and foodie’s paradise. I could literally wander around all day…

Location #8 – Take a sunset cruise up and down the River Seine. Time it so that when it ends, the Eiffel Tower will be sparkling!

This is best way to end your day in Paris. It’s rather inexpensive and one of the best ways to take in all the sights and sounds.

Now please excuse me while I go down a rabbit hole of all my videos of Paris on my phone…geez I miss this place so much.

Eleven years ago, I was sitting in a tiny classroom teaching a group of kindergarteners how to sing. I was a happy, small-town wife, mom, and teacher with dreams that looked like going to Disney World and spending time with my family on the beach...

When I picked up a camera for the first time I had no long-term vision except to capture my kids in a more authentic way than those stiff JCPenney portraits. And yet, the world opened up for me in ways I never could have imagined. I fell in love with capturing warmth and genuine emotion behind my lens and slowly but surely built a business with connection at its center. And my business strategy worked...
