beachside locker room

The simplicity of an old beachside locker room...after 40 years of winding my way through this one, it's amazing that it still feels and smells exactly the same.  Nichole has wanted to shoot in here for years...she said it had just the right feel to create something  beautiful and intimate.   ~ michael

the faces

It's always amazing that how you surround yourself for a shoot creates the ease of the day no matter how grueling.  As with most, this was early, long and intense with many looks, but it also seemed so easy since everyone helped make it flow like i hoped it would ~ michael

teaching the next generation the game of boules

ah...the carousel



within jardin de luxembourg, this carousel is the oldest in paris.  children still mount an animal, are handed a stick, and try to spear a ring as they fly by the carousel man
