Because Paris is such a busy city, our Picture Me Paris Dream Photo sessions take place between 8:00 am and 11:00 am. This allows us the most flexibility and some of the best light of the day.
how much time should i book for my session?
The Paris Dream Photo Shoots are three (3) hours.
photos, what's included?
You'll be provided with a minimum of 50 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 photos 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.
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 Session!
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. Umbrellas make gorgeous props, too!
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. Feel free to bring any cute props with you from home as well!
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 10-20€ 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.
