“Paris. She opens your heart, steals it and there it will stay. It was an early Wednesday morning when Paris was just waking up. The cafe doors still closed, the bustle of the city subdued while the lovers are still wrapped in each others arm, extending the evening just a bit longer. Abraham held my hand in his as we sat in front of a cafe, one that we’ve passed countless times during our evening strolls around the Marais. Time suspended in the air and everything, just stopped. My beloved, my best friend who I can conquer the world with sat in front of me. The seine, just a few steps away sparkled with beautiful promises and the bells of a church filled the moment with an enchanting melody. A kiss brings me back to life & the sound of a shutter clicking, exposing the Parisienne morning light to a frame of film, promising that the moment has been captured.
Dreaming back to that memory makes my heart ache. It aches for Paris, the fine wine, the baguettes to be had, the cobblestones to walk upon and the history to inspire from. This is a city where the unromantic will learn romance, where lovers walk arm in arm lost in a world of their own. Where artists, poets, singers, musicians, photographers all come to dream and create their art. Paris is the author of a world created so many years ago, of history, art, dreams and love. If there is ever a place that exists and wholeheartedly speaks of my soul, Paris encompasses all that is me.
I am forever grateful for these memories, grateful to my now, dear friend Harriette for capturing such beautiful photographs on film of Abraham & I. When, during our session, I found myself countlessly taking deep breaths, reminding myself that this is all reality… “
