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

I have been offline for a few weeks with horrendous internet problems--part of the trade off for living in  a rural paradise, I guess.  But I think I'm back now, and in the meantime I have had another article published in the always beautiful "Belle Inspiration" magazine.  If you would like to read my article on the Fairy tale village of Gerberoy you can click here.

Au revoir,


  1. I'm so glad you're back! I've been thinking about you :~)

    All I can say is Incroyable!!! Your words and images so beautifully transport me to that fairy tale realm! I think if I am ever able to go there, I will not want to leave :~)

    xo, Elaine
