Are you a fun loving family, coming to Paris? Capture your family time in Paris with a memorable Picture Me Paris photo experience!
I love working with families with children of all ages, to create beautiful family heirlooms from your time in Paris. After all, you don't come to Paris every day! I'll work with your family to create the Paris memories of your dreams, and show your family also in both formal and informal images. For example, it's really important for me to show your family having fun. This could be anything from your three-year old jumping in a puddle, to your two boys chasing each other around a tree.

Picture Me Paris Family Photo Experience
I can’t wait to capture your special family time in Paris!
Your photo experience is customized for your family, choose from a 1 or 2 hour photo experience in Paris. If you’re short on time, and prefer just one Paris location, like the Eiffel Tower, a 1 hour experience is great, If you’d like to see a bit more of the city, a 2 hour experience is amazing and could include the Eiffel Tower and Louvre, for example. Most people, especially first time visitors to Paris, wish to be photographed at the Eiffel Tower, but don’t forget—Paris is beautiful and there are many great photography locations in the city.
1 hour Picture Me Paris Photo Experience = 1 Paris location (like the Eiffel Tower or Louvre)
2 hour Picture Me Paris Photo Experience = 2 Paris locations (like the Eiffel Tower and Louvre)

there are dozens of photographers in paris, why should we chose you?
There are so many amazing photographers in Paris, and we all take beautiful photographs. So what stands out about me? I'm super professional, fun, friendly and I'll bend over backwards to make you happy! I also adore working with families, have a lot of patience, and I like working with children a lot. Little people, and teens, are my specialty!
Also, I'm American, and while I love to work with people from all over the world, I really shine when I work with other Americans, Canadians, Brits, Aussies etc because I know the level of customer service you're accustomed to. I'll communicate clearly with you, make you feel comfortable, ask about you (I actually care about you as people, not just a number), share some laughter, and since I've been coming to Paris since I was 17 (don't ask how many years ago that was!), I know this city so well, and the very best spots and angles for your gorgeous Paris images as a family.
what's the best time of day for my session?
We conduct our family photo sessions in the morning, depending on the season, usually between 8:00 am and 11:00 am. This is best for nice lighting and we'll have a few less tourists in our images. I used to offer sessions in the evening, but Paris is so popular, it's incredibly difficult to get the quality of images I want to provide with the tourist crowds, so mornings are ideal.
how large can our group be?
At this time I welcome families of 5 people or less. Unfortunately, I'm unable to accommodate larger families or groups at this time.
can i see some more of your family work?
Sure! Please visit my blog:
my child is fussy, i'm worried about that!
Don't worry! I've worked with many children from newborn to teenagers and I love them all. I've even had children tell me they didn't want their photo taken at all but we ended up with beautiful family images! The best advice for your photo session is to:
Determine how long your child can be content for photos. We have sessions starting at one hour in one location, two hours in two locations, and three hours in three locations. In my experience, a one hour session, in one location, is best for small children. If you don't think your child can be content for an hour, we can always trim the hour session, but it's advised to give ourselves this time in case the child needs a snack, etc.
Ensure there are diversions for the photo session. Bring along any snacks or toys for the little ones. For older children, get them excited about seeing the Eiffel Tower and having some great photos to show their friends.
I tend to work faster than the typical photographer, particularly with families, so that the children don't get bored. If the child (or children) get hungry we can always stop in a cafe for a bite to eat or refreshment. Often also there are carousels nearby, and children may like to ride it.
photos, what's included?
You'll be provided with professionally edited digital photos, sent via a private link to a personalized portrait gallery. Your professionally edited images are high resolution and in JPG format, which allows you to download them to share with family and friends on social media or email, and also to print to display in your home as beautiful wall art or a photo album.
how do i find you for our session?
We agree on the time and place we'll meet. Usually it's near a major metro station and quite easy to find. During our session, for transportation we can walk (especially if the weather is nice), take metro (which is fast and convenient), or take a taxi.
what's the weather like?
It rains a lot in Paris and is often cloudy. The good news is that the city is beautiful in the rain, it actually shimmers. It's always a good idea to take an umbrella along with you, especially in the winter. Our sessions are done rain or shine, but I'll send you more information on weather options. In the meantime, check out the rainy day gallery here, and you can see how beautiful Paris is in the rain. A lot of my clients get really worried about rain, they worry their photos won't turn out, they worry they may get wet. As it rains so much in Paris, we have to work with the weather or we'd never get out if we never went out in the rain. Instead of fearing the rain, think of it as a fun Paris adventure, to be able to share an umbrella with the ones you love in the Paris rain, it's distinctly Parisian. Last winter it rained every single day in Paris. I shot beautiful images of families in the rain.

what if i want props like balloons for my photo session?
Some people like balloons, flowers or other props for their photo session. I can help you find a store that has balloons or a flower shop.
how do we get around?
Transportation is not provided but you can get anywhere in Paris fairly quickly by public transport, such as metro, bus or by taxi. Transportation during our session, if required (i.e. metro, Uber, taxi), is not covered in the cost of your session. Most transport costs are between 2-20€ for anywhere we will go, or if not too far and you're up for it, we can walk. Please make sure you have euro cash, as most taxis in Paris do not accept credit cards.
i'd like to do a maternity or gender reveal session, is this possible?
Absolutely! To see a small selection of previous maternity/gender reveal photo sessions click here.
payment & cancellations
You may pay via Paypal or credit card for your payment. If your plans change, and you need to cancel your photo session, you may do so without penalty with at least fourteen (14) days' notice and your payment will be refunded in its entirety.
