Paris Family Vacation Photographer

As a lifestyle family vacation photographer, I am currently living the expat life and based in Strasbourg Alsace, a few short hours away from Paris by train, I love getting the chance to come into Paris to photograph families and their children. Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world. I’ve spent days picnicking in the parks with my husband, getting lost in the magical alley streets in Marais, and losing track of the hours in Shakespeare & Co. 

I’ve spent much of my free time wandering Paris over the years, but in 2018 I began photographing clients in Paris, which made my trips to the City of Lights even more enjoyable for me!

Last year, I began taking on family photoshoots in Paris and I was so honored to meet the charming and radiant Ibelise, who also happens to be a wedding and family photographer in Paris (check her out here!) and her darling son, Denzel. 

Family Vacation Photos at the Lourve in Paris

Ibelise and I met in a photography group on Facebook and after photographing her and sweet boy last year at La Comédie-Française, she reached out to me again this year for updated family photos.

It’s only been one year, but how kids grow so quickly is beyond me! Denzel was so much taller at this year’s session, and I particularly loved how goofy, silly and active he’s gotten over the last year. Ibelise and Denzel are so lively and kind, always open to trying all of my wacky ideas and so quick to laughter – making my job as a family photographer so easy!

The harsh early afternoon light was surprisingly spotty, changing every few seconds with the quickly moving clouds, in the Lourve courtyard, but with some maneuvering around the shade-provided corners and cobblestone squares, we were able to get so many stunning and joyously FUN photographs of the two of them playfully interacting.

And that is what I love most about lifestyle family photography – the candid, the honest, the real, the emotive, and the natural human interactions.
