Hi dear friends. I felt a little sad this morning. It’s rare but it happens. It’s life. I work so hard to make my dreams come true that I don’t have a social life anymore. What I am working on is very time consumming and as I am bootstrapping I must handle a lot of things by my own. And because I am not an expert in some areas, I must learn quickly, comsumming even more of my time. But it worth it and the more I work, the more expert I become. I know it. A voice inside me tells me everyday to not let it down.
I created this Daily Dose of Happiness to offer you moments that could make you smile, that could brighten your day, that could give you hope. 129 Doses of Happiness already and this 130th today. Every day, I must figuring out how to surprise you in a great way. But today, I’m gonna be selfish. I will dedicate this Doseof Happiness to myself. And I have to thank one of the sweetest women of fashion : Stephanie Lacava and her magic smile (remember her beautiful yellow dress!).
As I was diving into my huge Paris and New York fashion week archives = dozens of thousands pictures, I stumbled upon amazing moments full of natural beauty, happiness and fun. I hope you’ll see them soon. And suddenly, here came Stephanie Lacava. I was so happy to see her again as I forgot that encounter. I saw her smile again and all the encounter appeared again in my head. It was after Isabel Marant I think, at couvent des Cordeliers. She was with a friend of her. As I know the power of her smile, as I know her kindness, I immediately thought that I should find quickly an idea to show you this in a single photo shoot. I just have 5 seconds before other photographers come and pertube my photo shoot. I asked her if I could take a nice picture of her and she kindly agreed. But as you know my artistic hetic (being different, creative), I proposed her to pose like the famous statue “Le penseur de Rodin”. She agreed but didn’t feel that comfortable. I could feel it and I myself felt embarrassed to not being able to create a great experience for her. And then, I realised something : I should use the fact that she doesn’t feel comfortable to play a “statue” to make her laugh. BINGO ! . I don’t remember what I told her but it worked. I was helped by her friend and then the magic happened : Stephanie Lacava couldn’t stop laughing and made my day and made it again today. For that, thank you very much once again Stephanie.
