Capture your amazing family memories in Paris with a fun 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
+ Your family doesn’t come to Paris every day, and your children won’t be this young forever (even if they’re young adults). It’s family time in Paris and there’s no better way to capture your precious family memories in Paris than with a Picture Me Paris family photo experience. I love working with families with children of all ages.
+ Most families are interested in an hour at the Eiffel Tower, but you can select any Paris location you wish, such as the beautiful islands around Notre Dame Cathedral (even riverside) or one of the beautiful gardens in Paris. If you’d like an extended photo experience of more than an hour, we can do that too! Some families are looking for “mini sessions” of less than an hour, as they worry about their children sitting still for an hour. Don’t worry about that, we need up to an hour as the Eiffel Tower gets very busy. It also takes time for children to warm up to the camera and not be rushed.
+ Included in your family experience are 20 gorgeous professionally edited digital images in high resolution format. After your experience, I’ll invite you to view your personalized online portrait gallery, containing all of the beautiful art I created for you on your special day. You’ll select your absolute favorites and will be able to download them to your computer, tablet and cell phone. Share with family and friends on Facebook and Instagram, create a beautiful slideshow, or create prints and canvases for display in your home.
+ In addition to your 20 favorites, you’ll have the option to order additional images from your gallery (typically there are up to 50 in your gallery). Everything in your gallery will be professionally edited to enhance color and light.
+ Your beautiful family images will be ready for you to view in just 3 days!
+ Option to purchase amazing reveal heirloom box to preserve your family memories forever, and pass down through the generations

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.
How do I find you for our photo experience?
We agree on the time and place we'll meet. Usually it's near a major metro station and quite easy to find.
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 included but you can get anywhere in Paris fairly quickly by public transport, such as metro, bus, taxi or Uber.
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.
