Knowing Laurene and Nima has been nothing short of a blessing in my life, and I was so happy to be able to photograph them before I left France. It was because of their kind hearts and giving spirits that I was able to take the adventure of a lifetime this year. They opened the doors to their home, agreeing to host me in France for two months. And they did this without ever expecting a thing! On top of that, they quickly became two of my closest friends, and I left with Laurene telling me that their home is my home while tears filled our eyes. I absolutely loved spending two months with them and already miss them more than anything. It’s hard leaving your heart in a different country, but I read a quote recently that said, “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That’s the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” I’m so lucky to have a home in more than one country.
These two are planning on getting married in 2015, so I know there will be another adventure to Europe in the near future. I can’t wait!
