My favorite location to photograph families in Strasbourg is at the beautiful Parc de l’Orangerie. Here are a few sneak peeks and a glimpse at our recent Fall session!

Their Story

Just like every modern romantic fairytale goes – just ask me and my husband! – Eloise met her husband in France 10 years ago after initially meeting online! A romantic move to France later, and they had two beautiful and lovely children. I met Eloise through a mutual friend in Strasbourg and she mentioned she wanted to have some Fall family portraits for their Christmas cards. We met in front of the lake at Parc de l’Orangerie and shared a French hug, me gushing over how gorgeous they looked, with their stylish Fall outfits. They knew exactly how to dress for their stylish outing in the park! K, her 5 year old son, and I spent the session chatting about our mutual love for Spiderman and Star Wars and her daughter, 7, was A-DOR-ABLE showing me her coolest dance movies, laughing freely and always down for fun photo ideas. Eloise and her family were all so easy to photograph, and we got plenty of beautiful options for their family Christmas card.

The Session

This session was tons of fun and at one of the most beautiful times of the year – early November! I love photographing kids ages 5 and up because they just get all my jokes. Laughs are super easy to capture, my silly dance moves and corny jokes always go a long way, making my job easier to get those spontaneous lifestyle images that my clients love the most. We also included my typical mid-shoot dance party where we all showed off our best dance movies, jumping in the Fall foliage deep in the Parc de l’Orangerie.

The Location

My favorite location to photograph families in Strasbourg, France is here at the Parc de l’Orangerie. My favorite times to photograph here are in November when the trees are showing off at their peak, when the leaves are deep reds and oranges. I love this park, not only for the beautiful bridges, gazebos and ornate fountains to work with in the background, but because there is so much space for the kids to run around and get some energy out! I had so many gorgeous locations picked out for this shoot but only managed to get around six of the locations done within the hour (and I work fast) because there are just that many beautiful locations for a family photos.

Thank for Eloise and fam for such a fun time! 🙂
