Karina is one fantastic photographer! We asked Karina to do a family session with our two boys. From the very beginning she was helpful, guiding us with regards to what to expect and how to prepare for our session. I felt like I knew her well before I even met her.

During the session she was extremely patient as we fumbled with our boys, lent us a helping hand and made my boys feel completely at ease and pose for the pics! (And even my camera shy hubby.)

Her turnaround was fast, service super professional, pricing reasonable and it was nice to have a photographer who was just as excited about my first trip to Paris as I was. Anyone who hires her will not be disappointed.

All the best Karina, and thank you for capturing those magical images of our family!

useful info

what's the best time of day for my session?

I recommend morning sessions between 8:00 am and 10:00 am or late afternoon between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm when the light is really nice for photograph (this depends on the season). Mornings are better for less tourists, in general. However, being Paris, there will always be tourists. If you have small children, it may be better to do your session mid-morning, after they've had time to wake up and have a little breakfast. 

how much time should i book for my session?

Most people book a two hour photo session, which allows us to go to at least two Paris locations (i.e. Eiffel Tower and Louvre courtyard). If you prefer just a few photos in one Paris location (such as the Eiffel Tower), a one-hour photo session is great, it really depends on your family or group of friends. I also offer a three hour package, where we visit three Paris locations and also allows you time to change clothing if you wish. If you're a family, this also gives us time to get the children snacks or drinks and move at a leisurely pace.

how large can our group be?

If your group is larger than 4, I can for sure accommodate you, but for large families or groups, there is a different package to ensure you have the very best experience. Please click here to see more about larger groups.

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 a minimum of 10-100 digital photos, depending on the session package you select, within 5 days of the session 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.  

what should we wear?

Paris is an elegant town, so it's often fun to dress up for your photos. A nice jacket for men and a pretty dress for women are really nice. But it's totally up to you, you can be more casual--it's whatever really suits your style. For families with children, comfortable and stylish attire is best, but also dress for the weather and ensure that the children will be warm and covered, if it's a rainy day.

how do we communicate?

I want you to have the absolute best experience in Paris and will do everything I can to ensure you do! Please also take a moment to review the FAQ.  You're welcome to contact me to discuss any aspects of your Paris photo session. 

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.

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.
