I was so excited to shoot some French riviera family portraits during my stay there in May. I met up with this beautiful Anglo-French family of four on a little beach in Cannes, taking advantage of the unseasonably hot weather. The sun was setting across the bay (full of superyachts!) and the warm light made it feel more like early September than the middle of May. Danni the mother is an event planner & stylist herself, so needed no prompting on co-ordinating the outfits for the shoot and she even brought a little picnic, which was very welcome after a day of walking around Cannes.
The french lifestyle is very attractive indeed, with its wonderful weather and the easy sense of living, it’s easy to see how the British are seduced into escaping our grey skies and moving there. After our portrait shoot we sat on the beach and drank wine with cheese and crackers whilst little Margot & Clementine played on the shore. Hooray for simple pleasures!
