Frequently Asked Questions

I have been asked the following questions quite a few times in the past, and finally decided to compose an itty-bitty FAQ for those of you interested. If more questions arise in the future, I’ll add them below. xo! – Abby

what kind of camera/camera lens do you shoot with?

All of my photographs from late August 2013 to October 2014 were taken with a Canon EOS Rebel, T3i and the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. Prior to this, I shot solely with my iPhone. In October 2014 my lovely mother was kind enough to purchase me an early birthday present in New York City: a 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM lens. I’ve begun to experiment with disposable film cameras as well, and recently purchased a Fujifilm Instax camera.

Yes! I do! And I would, love, love to hear from you! Write me at (or through this convenient contact form).

i love your blog layout/theme! who designed it?

Aww, thank you! I love it, too. (insert smiley-face emoji here.) Lindsay Landis of Purr Design is utterly phenomenal.

Oui, je peux parler un petit peu. Mais… I still have a lot to learn.

why did you pick paris?

See this post.

do you take all of these photos yourself?

All of the photographs on Lace & Lilacs were taken by me, unless clearly captioned otherwise (such as in the ‘lovely little inspiration’ series). Graphics (like this one) are acquired through GraphicStock.
