A Trip Through Northern Italy

I'm a huge fan of Italy, and let's face it Italians do everything with such elegance and style apart from maybe driving!!! - those that have been to Italy will know what I mean!

The Northern part of Italy is by far one of my most favourite areas to visit and it's hard not to be in awe with cities such as Venice, Lake Garda, Florence and Milian.

Today on Coco Lane film photographer, Elizabeth LaDuca shares with us her trip travelling through the Northern part of Italy with her husband and trusted camera in hand.

From Elizabeth LaDuca: My husband and I celebrated our marriage with a trip through northern Italy. We ventured from Venice, up to Lake Garda, down through Cinque Terre and finally finishing in Florence and the Tuscan countryside. I fell in love with all of the beautiful textures and tones and enjoyed documenting our entire trip on film with my vintage hasselblad camera. While we loved how different each region was, Lake Garda holds a special place in our hearts. There is something so magical about the tiny hillside towns nestled up and down steep cliffs, the beautiful clear lake, and olive and lemon groves. We can't wait to go back!

My background is as a wedding & lifestyle photographer, shooting both digital and film to create authentic, soft and natural fine art photographs. Working primarily with natural light to give my work a beautiful, light and airy touch infused with soft tones. 

I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary.  Coco Lane was founded as I wanted to create something that is about an experience, the slower pace of life, cosiness and candlelight, cuddling up on the sofa with loved ones, being with the people you love, sharing food with close friends, a feeling of home, nurturing a chosen career, wanderlust travels, savouring the small moments in everyday life and just being you and enjoying a cup of tea.

I'm excited to bring you stories that promote all those moments in life that give us value and meaning; inspiring  us to live beautifully.

"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life.  If you are interested in something, no matter what it is. Go at it full speed.  Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it.  Lukewarm is no good" - Roald Dahl
