Montmartre meandering

A conversation about how unfamiliar my river-side dwelling friends, Katie and Carin, were with the area of Montmartre led to this wonderful day. I've lived in the shadow of the Butte de Montmartre for four years now, it's long been my playground. I was more than happy to show my dear friends around on this rare sunny day a couple of weeks ago.

Katie thought the day would be a good opportunity to shoot her first set of photos for a new series she's starting about puppies and their owners. Daisy and I were more than happy to be the first off the rank. Carin thought it might be nice to take pictures of Katie shooting us. And then at once stage I whipped my phone out to get them both!

Despite being a bit awkward at the start - on my behalf, Katie, the professional, was breezy and calm all day - it was lots of fun helping her create these wonderful pictures. They beautifully encapsulate the endless love I have for my little furry friend and the magnificent day the three of us had wandering the north of the city, at one point crepes in hand.

While days like these are few and far between, they are magic while they last and I'll never forget this particular one for as long as I live. I am beside myself grateful that Katie decided to bestow her talent on me and my pup. If you are visiting or are living in the city with a little fur friend of your own, contact Katie for a little photo session. As a testament on how good Katie is with our four-legged friends, Daisy hates! has strong issues with everything and everyone, but Katie had her sitting in her lap by the end of the day. I'd say they are now best friends forever!

    1. Oh, Judith, thank you so much! How happy I was on this day, which comes across so well in these pics, is a testament to how great my friends are - I do believe the company on this day helped make the photos great, although my friend Katie is a brilliant photographer! Thank you for popping over! xx
