The Warmth of Andalusia


El Esparragal Hotel in Gerena, Andalusia



I am only one day back from Spain. Tired and jet lagged. But oh so happy after the incredible past ten days I’ve spent with Marta and our group gathered at El Esparragal in Andalusia. As a few students exclaimed when our small bus pulled in front of the main house, the photos on their website are far from doing justice to the beauty and warmth of the place!

We are lucky! What an incredible experience we’ve had!

I need a few days to gather my thoughts and rest my body, but I promise to be back with pictures and words about it all.

I sense you will love it.

It was beautiful.


  1. Je suis sûre que tu vas nous montrer des photos à mourir … j’ai un peu suivi sur ton instagram, c’était magnifique apparemment !

  2. Oh you are one of the luckiest and talented people I follow! Cannot wait for your post and to follow along on this stunning trip.

  3. Oh Bea, I can not wait to see and hear about it. It sounds warm in every way from working with Marta to the students and time you guys had.

    I can feel the inspiring time it has been!

  4. So sorry I couldn’t afford it… I must have been marvelous for you and the group 🙂
    Have a great week!

  5. Looks amazing. I wish I hadn’t discovered all this too late! Maybe I can make the next one…:)

  6. Bonjour Béatrice!

    Tu nous fais rêver à distance avec tes jolies photos. On devine les beaux moments champêtres… Vite, vite, les prochains billets.

    Si jamais tu désires vivre le Québec gourmand, je t’invite à séjourner gracieusement dans ma résidence secondaire au cœur de la province, entre Québec et Montréal. Cela me fera plaisir.

    Salutations amicales!

  7. Merci beaucoup Anne! Très gentil de ta part. Je garde cette invitation en mémoire!! J’aime beaucoup le Québec. Bon été! Je vais me remettre vite à bloguer. Juste toujours prise par le temps, surtout quand je rédige book #2!

  8. Margaret, well, the truth is that I have a second book to write too 😉 and enjoying my Lulu while she is on vacation. Tomorrow will never bring back yesterday! 😉

  9. I was there, I enjoyed everyday. It was an amazing experience. Thanks to Béa and Marta I have learn not only about photography and styling, they were ready to give all the info to a photographer that want to work in the business.
    Beautiful days, well organized…amazing location.
    And in the end I can say that I found amazing “beautiful” person, ready to share and to help. Thanks for everything.

  10. Hi Bea ! I’m so happy that you had a wonderful time in Spain ! If you ever decide to do a workshop in The Carmel Valley area ,I may be able to show the group around,because my girlfriends and I go there for a week enery summer. God bless you !

  11. I love the simplicity of the second image. The blue, the clean white and simple shapes. Brings back precious memories of my own time in Andalucía. So pretty. Thanks for bringing me back to those days.

  13. Magnifiques photos, elles invitent déjà à une multitude d’impressions que je me réjouis d’apprécier. L’Andalousie regorge de beautés et de secrets, d’histoire et de traditions, explosive en couleur et douce à regarder. Il me tarde de découvrir l’oeil de l’artiste sur ses paysages. Au plaisir d’admirer les futures photos, merci pour ces regards.
