Let the hallelujah bells ring - we finally have a new collection in the Portland | Grace shop. If you follow my insta-stories you might have heard about why there have been delays and the scrapped collections and the surprise collections that was due to be released on June 19th. Well ! That surprise colelction did not pass my OCD side and just before I pulled the plug on another collection - enter my trip to the French Riviera in Fall of 2015.

My time in the French Riviera is possibly my most memorable trip to date and if there is one spot on your travel bucketlist - let me recommend the French Riviera. This collection was shot in multiple cities - from Antibes to Monaco. This collection has a lot going for it. At top of the list, the fact that it was not intended to be part of the shop. I think that fact made the shoot free and imperfectly perfect - I hope that comes through with these prints. A lot of work and late nights hunched over my computer has got into the final prints; With over 1000 pictures taken during my time in the Riviera - it was a tall order to narrow down what made the cut. Eventually, I decided on the ones that captured the essence of this part of the world; the shots that transported me back to the riviera; the ones that reminded me of the sounds and smell of this part of world and the ones that make me want to pack up and head back. I hope all of that comes through here. 

Naming the prints was another tall order. This is my favorite part of releasing a new collection and I tend to have a list of names before I do the shoot, but since this was not the intended shoot - I had nothing prepped so I called in some help and over late night phone calls we named these print. I am so thankful I called for help because what we came up with - swoon

Similar to other collections - these come in a variety of sizes 8 X 10 to 16 X 20 and available to purchase now. To celebrate this release, we are offering 20% off all orders from the collection with the code 'french riviera" now through the end of the month.
