About Me

Hi! I am Rebecca Plotnick and I am so happy you are here. I started photographing in High School with the days of film and fell in love with the art as soon as I saw the magic of the image appear on blank paper once it hit the developer. My goal is to make you enjoy the beauty of every day and the small details that we may overlook.

I took a trip to Paris on a whim in 2010. I was working as a Nanny after being laid off. The family was going on Spring Break, so I decided to take a solo trip to Paris. There was one photo in my Etsy shop at the time that was getting more hits than anything else so I was using this as research that Paris just might work for me. I hadn't quite found my niche for my photography shop. I used airline miles from my previous job and a little bit of money I had saved and took the leap. It was my first solo trip abroad and my second trip to Paris. 

It wasn't an overnight success, but that first trip to Paris was a launching point for my photography and my business. I have spent extended time in Paris over the years. I have seen the rooftops covered in snow, the cherry blossoms in full bloom, and the leaves changing color in The Tuileries. I have collected thousands of photos over the years, but I share just a small selection here in the shop.

Five years ago,  I started a blog about my love for Paris and ways to be inspired by the Parisian culture. You can see more Paris photos here, along with more about my personal life on Everyday Parisian

I run my photography business from Chicago and travel back to Paris a few times a year. 

Thank you so much for being here!
