Welcome to French at Heart, a photography blog with few words, but many pictures of a country I love, France. All of the photographs were taken by my husband, Dean Polis, and myself, Dawne, and edited in Adobe Photoshop. If you like what you see, I would be honored if you'd leave a comment. And if you would like to learn our Digital Photography secrets, and make photographs like these yourself, [ oh, yes, you can do it!] we would be happy to lead you on an image making adventure to France with us. You may contact us here or at my email iluvfrance@wildblue.net

More Belle...

The darling Mimi Bleu, publisher of 
just sent me a link to my photo essay on Marie Antoinette's hameau in the recent issue.  If you'd like to see it, click here or here.
We'll be going to this very place on 
Bastille Day, as part of our upcoming 
Photography Workshop in Paris and Normandy, where we'll be teaching our "painterly technique".

  2. Very nice! Can't wait to watch over & over.

  3. Good morning lovely one!

    I am SO LATE HERE.....I cannot tell you how connected I feel to you and your vision and purpose. I wish I could go, but you know that....I wish you FUN and SUCCESS and I am looking forward to slowing down as school lets out so I can LET GO and RUN with BOO BOO!!!!!! Anita

  4. Absolutely dreamy and reminds me why I love to go to Versailles so much. This week I'm reading Farewell, My Queen, so it may be the closest I get to Versailles for a few months!

  5. Dear Dawne,

    How wonderful that your beautiful photo, from Versailles was printed in Belle Inspiration magazine, so romantic and dreamy and would so love to be there, right now.

    Have a lovely week

  6. I have heard so many people say the love the Hameau more than Versailes. I can see why from your beautiful article. Lovely and amazing images my dear, Dawne.


  7. Dearest Dawne,

    It was nice to see you come by....I guess I have just grown attached to you and was wondering how you were....I hope you plans for Paris are coming along and that all goes SO WELL! I wish NANCY could go with you to Paris; she is an excellent, a most EXCELLENT photographer!

    Be well dearest Dawne, Anita

  8. Hi Dawne
    Where will you be in Normandie? Don`t think that you are coming to Normandie and escaping without meeting for a cafe!!

  9. Such a lovely piece you did about the Hameau, your images are so gorgeous. Can't wait to meet up with you in July!

    à bientôt,
