We’ll be staying at The Bailey’s Hotel in South Kensington, then taking the Eurostar to Paris (not sure yet where we’ll be staying there).
I’ve never been to Europe, and I’ve been dying to go to London for quite some time now. For some reason I’m even more excited for that than I am for Paris! I’m going to be a total tourist and hightail it right over to Notting Hill and Chelsea, which seem to be the most adorable and charming neighborhoods ever. I can’t wait to photograph the pastel colored houses! That feels like quintessential London to me, and nothing gets me more excited than the thought of having a new and entirely different place to photograph.

Here are a few items on my agenda thus far: Read more ››
