About the Author
Georgianna Lane is a well-known floral and travel photographer whose romantic, light-infused images have been licensed and published internationally in books, magazines, calendars, greeting cards, and beyond. She is also the author of Paris in Bloom and New York in Bloom and divides her time between Paris and a wooded property in the Pacific Northwest.
“I don’t know how Georgianna does it. She manages to make Paris, already the most beautiful city in the world, appear even more charming, more elegant and more beautiful than it already is. When she says ‘...this book is my love letter to the French capital, an unapologetically romantic celebration of her abundant floral charms’, I couldn’t agree more. This is a love letter that must be opened and enjoyed and displayed on your desk or table, some place close at hand in order that you may return to it often. Paris in Bloom is filled with a veritable carpet of pinks and whites, pastels and green portraits that make me let out an audible sigh of joy. This book can re-inspire you to believe that yes, life really is quite beautiful.”
— Doni Belau, Author of Paris Cocktails & Founder of Girls’ Guide to Paris
