Paris Day Two: Pinson World Tour

Here is Day 2 our trip, we were in Paris, it was a pretty short day for us. We had our portrait session in the afternoon so we just had a few hours to sightsee before going back to our apartment to get ready. We picked up breakfast at Le Coquelicot des Abbesses which was my favorite spot to stop in the mornings. We stopped here almost every day! Then we headed to Musée d'Orsay which is my favorite art museum in Paris. It's filled with all artists like Monet, Pissaro, Cézanne, Manet, Degas, Gaugin, Renoir, Seurat and many more. It's full of sculptures and paintings and even gorgeous furniture. We didn't have time to see it all but I saw what I wanted to! They also don't allow photos inside, so we snuck a few of the main area where you can see how the building used to house a train station, and a few from the roof top where you can see the Sacré-Cœur which is just a few blocks from our apartment.

We walked a bit through the area of Saint Germain and then headed back to our apartment for my hair and makeup done by Sanni Sorma. Then we headed out for our portrait session and got an incredible view of the Eiffel Tower and finished up at the Lovre. We went down to the mall area below and took this horrible out of focus iPhone selfie but it's all I got!

Paris Day One: Pinson World Tour

At the end of October beginning of November Seth and I embarked on our 18 day #pinsonworldtour which was a whirlwind. We saw so much and yet didn't have enough time to see everything on our list! Honestly, there is so much to share, so I envision this being a lot of blog posts to cover it all! We left from Wichita Falls to DFW and then to CDG (Paris). If you are planning yourself I highly recommend getting a frequent flyer number and picking an airline that is the most convenient for you. We always fly out of WF and that means American is our airline. We fortunately had a non stop flight to Paris which was awesome. If you are long-legged I'd highly recommend splurging on getting the main cabin extra, which is beyond worth it for a long flight. pinson-world-tour-paris-photographer-trip-of-a-lifetime_0374.jpg Here is our first view of Paris after arriving at our apartment. If we stuck our heads out the window we could see the Eiffel Tower! Here is the apartment we stayed at in Montemartre, it was beautiful, sleeping with the windows open, I felt like it was home for a few days. pinson-world-tour-paris-photographer-trip-of-a-lifetime_0375.jpg The first day we were really jet lagged so we didn't do much, except nap and wander around the Champs Elysees and Montemartre.

James & Kim

Kim is my BFF, sister from another mother, long time previous coworker/Hobby Lobby slave. I photographed her wedding in May 2005, it was my first wedding ever to photograph. She bought me a 1 GB memory card, back when they were $100, and I shot it on my Canon Rebel XT that cost $1000. I was downloading images on my really awful laptop at the time, and I went through every image one by one in Photoshop. I didn't know any better! Plus so many programs that are available today weren't available back then. I didn't know any better, but what I did know was that they deserved great photographs and I kinda knew what I was doing - ish. But I think those are still some of their favorite images, because it was of the happiest day of their life (so far). The have family photos of so many important people to them, they have photos to remind them of their love when it gets hard, and images to show their children  and grandchildren of their wedding day. That's important! However, I must say, I have failed. Until this year, it had been over 7.5 years since I took their portraits, 7.5 years since they had photos of just the two of them, 7.5 years that I had a camera and didn't use it to document someone I love sooo much. This was LONG overdue, but it happened at the perfect time because just a week before they found out they are expecting! :D Yay! I'm not going to let this kiddo go by undocumented. Birth, Newborn, Family, 1 year birthday, ect, I am going to try my darndest to be there!

Anywho, on the Kim and James. We took these in Sherman, Texas just a few places around the area where my parents live. It was a gorgeous day.
