A fun Mother & Daughters photo session by the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame

Brooke reached out to me because she and her sister wanted to offer their Mom a beautiful gift while they were visiting Paris on a girls trip. I loved the idea of a surprise photo session!

We met at Trocadero and started with some classic Eiffel Tower shots. The 3 ladies were having a lot of fun and goofed around which I enjoyed a lot!

We then sat down on the grass in the Trocadero Gardens where they enjoyed a glass of vin rosé.

Some more photos by the Seine river. I could tell there was a lot of love and fun in this family!

We then went to the Notre Dame Cathedral area. Square Jean XXIII at the back of the famous church is one of my favorites to photograph in Paris.

I love it when people are comfortable enough to really be themselves in front of my camera, and I always do my best to make this photo session an enjoyable experience for everyone.

Marie was hands down the best decision we made on our trip! We surprised our mother with a photo session on the last day of our trip, and Marie was more than happy to learn all about our our mother/daughter trip and make it such a fun 1.5 hours! She gave us some great recommendations on locations and put up with our goofy antics. HIGHLY, highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer!

A Provence family photo session in Bonnieux, Luberon

Kari and her family chose the lovely village of Bonnieux for their vacation in the Luberon nature park in Provence.

In order to enjoy their stay fully, the family rented a beautiful villa with a big garden and a swimming pool, in which the children spent all their time! Is there a more amazing location for a relaxed family photoshoot?

Kids also enjoyed making funny faces and playing pétanque in the garden filled with lavender bushes, olive trees and beautiful Provence plants and flowers. In the meantime, their parents had a glass of local vin rosé.

After a quick outfit change, we headed to another Luberon gem: Lourmarin, a small Provence village about 20 minutes from Bonnieux. The american family fell in love with the old stones and small authentic shops.

Surely a unique souvenir of their France vacation parents and children will look upon with nostalgia and yearn for their return to magical Provence.
