Celebrate you! & design your own Paris dream experience with Picture Me Paris, for women of all ages.
What’s a Picture Me Paris Dream Experience?
It's where you, a wonderful lady visiting Paris, either on holidays, business, or working as a travel blogger or fashion blogger (also perfect for Sweet 16 and Quinceañera, 30th, 40th, 50th birthday) can make your Parisian dreams come true by capturing authentic images of you, set against the wondrous backdrop of Paris.
Often we as women don't take the time to celebrate our successes, our joys and our happiness. When's the last time you had a beautiful keepsake photo of yourself in Paris?
The Picture Me Paris Dream Photo Session is for women of all ages. You deserve this special day in Paris!
What about Quinceañera?
Each Picture Me Paris Dream Experience includes:
4 hours of photography in Paris with a fun, professional and friendly American, English speaking female photographer (that's me, Karina!). Hours are 8:00 am to 12:00 pm Monday to Friday. A half day gives us plenty of time to get from one Paris location to another, grab a coffee, and relax and enjoy our time in Paris.
Choose from two or three Paris locations such as the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Notre Dame, Montmartre or design your own dream experience
Includes at least two wardrobe changes (of your own clothing) or I can help you rent a gown if you prefer

What's the best time of day for my experience?
Because Paris is such a busy city, our Picture Me Paris Dream Photo Experiences take place between 8:00 am and 11:00 am. Monday to Friday. This allows us the most flexibility and some of the best light of the day.
How much time should I book?
The Paris Dream Photo Shoots are four (4) hours. We can go less time, but in my experience with wardrobe changes it’s better we have adequate time scheduled.
Are we restricted to just the Eiffel Tower?
No, most ladies like to do at least some photos at the Eiffel Tower, so you can do a mix. However, if you're not interested in the Eiffel Tower, you can choose other locations. Many people love to have some photos at the Eiffel Tower and then also at the Louvre Museum or near the Notre Dame Cathedral. I can also help you select your favorite locations.
Photos, what's included?
You'll be provided with 200 digital photos within 5 days of the session via a private link to an online portrait gallery. You can download these digital photos to your phone or computer, as these are keepsakes you'll want to print some as well! The images are high resolution JPG digital images, professionally edited, and do not contain watermarks. You do not pay for anything extra--the photo session, editing of the images and photographs for you to download are all included in the price. You can use your digital images in a variety of ways, such as sharing with friends and family on social media, such as Facebook or Instagram and beautiful prints and canvas can be made for your wall. You can also choose a beautiful photo album for your memories, this is an option. As this is a very special time, it calls for a beautiful way to remember your Paris memories!
What should I wear?
Paris is an elegant town, so it's often fun to dress up for your photos. You can be as glamorous as you like! If you would like to rent a gown while in Paris, let me know. There are a number of gown/couture rental companies in Paris with an amazing selection of gowns. This is the time to create your fantasy/dream images, so don't hesitate to go all out!
Can I do a change of clothing?
Absolutely, you're encouraged to change your wardrobe as you wish. For this, we'll utilize cafés, as there are not many public restrooms in Paris. You'll be sent a Picture Me Paris Dream Photo Session suggested checklist/questionnaire before your photo shoot so I can learn more about you and we can design the session that's best for you.
I'm not so comfortable in front of a camera, can you help with posing?
Absolutely! I'll work with you to discover the kinds of images you'll treasure, listen to your ideas, and will have ideas of my own. We'll work together to ensure you feel super comfortable and really enjoy your experience!
Do you provide hair and makeup services?
I can definitely put you in touch with a professional hair and/or makeup artist in Paris for your Picture Me Paris Dream Photo Experience! They'll make you look amazing.
How do i find you for our experience?
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 experience, for transportation we’ll take Uber or a taxi, transportation fees are not included in your experience but are about 12-20€.
Do you do Quinceañera or Sweet 16 photography?
Absolutely! I love photographing young ladies and their families for Quinceañera and Sweet 16 in Paris, It’s such an amazing place to capture these memories. I will work with you and your family to create a really enjoyable experience and provide you amazing images you’ll treasure forever.
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. Umbrellas make gorgeous props, too! In the meantime, check out the rainy day gallery here, and you can see how beautiful Paris is in the rain.

What ifI want props like balloons for my photo experience?
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. Feel free to bring any cute props with you from home as well!
How do we get around?
Transportation is not covered in the cost of your session, however, we'll get around during your session by taxi. Most transport costs are between 12-20€ for anywhere we will go. Please make sure you have euro cash, as most taxis in Paris do not accept credit cards.
