One of my favorite photographers is François Halard. He is one of the photographers of choice for Vogue magazine so you know he must be good. But I never really knew anything about him until I was going through some back issues of House and Garden and found a feature on his parents, Michelle and Yves Halard. Let's just say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this family, or maybe I should say pommier.
The Halards apparently have an open door policy at their home in Provence. Michelle says "When visitors come, I want them to feel good, that they've been welcomed with open arms - and lots of wine." Hmmm...I wonder how she'd feel if a random American girl just happened to stop by?
