Beautiful gardens, time with friends, fashion week, and classic white jumpsuits - this is the stuff my Parisian dreams are made of and it felt like a dream as I walked through the sprawling grounds of Jardin du Luxembourg on this afternoon. This photo set was photographed by my good friend Federico Guendel during my time in Paris for Fashion Week. On this particular afternoon we met for a stroll in the park to feast on sweets at the park cafe and shoot some photos together.  Fede shoots everything from high fashion look books and editorials to beautiful couples who elope in Paris and I love shooting with him because he always teaches me so many incredible lessons about modeling.  

Many of you know that I was signed by Scout Models a few months ago and I'm now modeling part time while I maintain my full-time work and entrepreneurial endeavors. I've been getting a lot of questions about the photos I post on my blog and Instagram and how they look so polished. I am obsessed with beautiful photography and I actually studied photography as my art while I was in college studying Business. All photos on the blog that I'm not in, I personally photographed. The photos I am in are either shots I've taken with various photographers friends or modeling photos. I have years of photography tricks and knowledge that goes into every one of these photos and the photographers have even more. 

I am thinking about posting a few blogs about modeling, photographic art direction, and my tips and tricks but I'm not sure if anyone is interested. Please Snapchat or Instagram message me @elisegabriel and let me know if you are. I'd love to hear your questions so I know how to incorporate them into a blog.
