Sometimes when I’m not exactly sure of a French word I just say the English word with a French accent. Usually I get my point across… or so I thought. Fact #1 : “location” is a French and an English word. Fact #2 : location means rental in French. So, for the past 3 years when I discussed possible locations for photo shoots in Paris, the Frenchies thought I was asking where to rent a location for a shoot. Lovely (insert humorous tone)! Did people seriously think I wanted to rent the Eiffel Tower for a Couples Session??? Oh la la!
