Carina Okula lives in a world filled with crunchy warm baguettes and salted butter. She thinks everyone should make a trip to the City of Light to people watch from a Parisian café at least one in their lifetime, if not more.

A travel and lifestyle photographer living in Paris, she’s been featured on The Paris Apartment, contributed to Société Perrier, Bonjour Paris, the award winning Aer Lingus inflight magazine, Cara, and was amongst the Travel and Leisure top five Instagram photographs for 2013.

When she’s not capturing the allure, charm, beauty and magic that is France, you will find her stumbling over her children’s French homework, hiking toward mountain tops, and co-hosting Embrace Paris.
