I first met Franck about 5 years ago during a business trip to Boston. Franck is a Renaissance man; a jazz aficionado, a music critic, and an English teacher at the famed Lycée des Pontonniers in Strasbourg, he’s lived his whole life in Strasbourg, as a true native of Alsace and Lorraine, which retains its dual Germano-French identity. Julia, like Franck, is also a native Alsacienne, a jazz aficionado, and a manager at a major retail store is Strasbourg. Julia and Franck met at a mutual friend’s party. The rest is history; they fell in love instantly and after two years of jazz music, and love, they were expecting their first child whom they decided to name Jean. Julia and Franck are both happy, creative, and well-cultured people.
For their photo shoot on an unusually frigid day this past February, their agreement was for each to be authentic; their instructions to me, “we’ll do what we want, but you can tell us what to to also.” I loved every moment with them; they were spontaneous throughout the session, happy, and their infectious laughter kept me warm and attracted many curious passers-by and their dogs. The images from the session reflect their personalities and love.
Julia and Franck, thank you for your hospitality and congratulations on the birth of Jean. May you live in love and laughter always.
