It’s a small word after all. I was connected to Rachel through my friend, Lizzie, who’s wedding I shot a few years ago in Washington, DC. Now that I’m based in the Netherlands she told her friend Rachel that I live in The Hague and that we should link up for newborn photos. So we did! I had the great pleasure of meeting little Penelope, along with Danny and Rachel,  in Amsterdam on a rare sunny afternoon in winter out in Amsterdam. I love that I had the chance to meet them in their home and make some images of the their beautiful little 10 day old! They were troopers and even withstood some brief rain outside while taking some pictures in front of the picturesque canals! Thank you so much for bringing out to the capitol of Nederland, guys! I hope we see each other soon!

Doei!

When I got a message from Nathan that he wanted to surprise his fiancé, Monica, with an engagement shoot in Paris, I could not have been happier! I had just been to Paris for the first time a month before and was eager to find my way back to this gorgeous, well documented place. The tropes of Paris being romantic are true. Yes, it’s filled with tourists and lots of people. But when every corner you turn is a postcard, it’s hard not to be inspired by this wonderful city. We were fortunate to find ourselves in a beautiful, crisp, November evening, about an hour or so before sunset. We made some images at the Jardins Royal Palais, the Musee du Louvre, and wrapped things up at the iconic Eiffel Tower. I even had a chance to grab a drink with these guys before I hopped back on my bullet train to The Hague. 3 hours later and I’m back in a different country. What time to be alive 😉

Thanks to this wonderful couple for having me along to share in their epic experience of France. Much love to you both! Cheers!

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but, I’ve moved to The Netherlands with my wife and goofy pooch. Since relocating here, I have made a conscious effort to document this truly special time in my life. That’s why I decided to launch a blog called Reislust. I chose the word reislust because it’s Dutch for “the love of travel.” I came to the realization that I will most likely never have another experience like this so I decided I want to share it with you guys!

Additionally, sometimes you need to switch it up a bit. I thought I might do that when I had plans to visit Paris. What can you say about this city that hasn’t already been said? It’s home to one of the most recognizable symbols in the world, the Eiffel Tower. It lays claim to some of the best, if not, the best food on planet earth. I could go on. But instead of continuing ad nauseam,  I’ve decided to share my experience of the most visited city in the world (42 million visitors per year) through video rather than with photos. So grab a chocolate croissant and an espresso and sit back and enjoy. Lastly, if you like this post, please don’t forget to share! Oh, and don’t forget to hit the HD button in the bottom corner to see all that crispy high def goodness :).

Au revoir!
