In her first book, Italian Joy, she describes the joys and hardships of her first five years, spent living in Florence. In 2004, Carla moved to Paris with her partner, Francesco, and in 2008 she published Paris Tango, a tribute to her new home. Chasing a Dream, an inspiring collection of Carla's photography and stories, was published in 2011.
Carla has a popular blog, Carlalovesphotography, and her photography has been published in Marie Claire, Australian Gourmet Traveller, Collezione, Vogue Entertaining + Travel and Flair, among others.

They also planted an olive grove which Vicki Archer works in. This book not only has lovely images of her home in Saint Remy-de-Provence but includes favorite images Paris. I enjoy receiving Archer's blog and following her on pinterest. She truly loves Provence and Paris, and it's fun to read her thoughts on French life and style.
Absolutely gorgeous photos throughhout the entire book.
I'm glad I didn't read the negative reviews before reading. Yes, I thought it a tad prententious but still really liked reading about her experiences and her life.
I would have loved reading more about her children and husband David too though.
She is a good writer and makes me really see and smell the French countryside!
The book is broken down into sections: finding and falling in love with the old olive farm, the beautiful countryside and garden, preparing for a wedding, visiting a friend in Paris, going to a bullfight in the southwest of France, etc. The text is chatty and certainly "right on" from the experiences of this Francophile. You can savor this for the tales of food alone, or visits with French craftsmen, or the insights into French life so beautifully documented by the photographs. A nice padded cover adds to the perfect gift package.
