A cute baby announcement photoshoot by the Eiffel Tower

After getting married in the United States, Jen and Jarod chose to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in Paris, France. They reached out to me as one of Jen’s best friends, Laura, had done a photo session with me a few months before and they loved the experience. I was glad I was able to schedule a short session with Jen and Jarod during their stay in Paris!

This was actually a double celebration as the newlyweds were also expecting a baby boy and wanted to make adorable baby announcement pictures!

The obvious but ever so magical location for this photoshoot was Trocadero, which has the best view of the Eiffel Tower for sure. We started with some lovely anniversary photos for which Jen had gotten a beautiful pink bouquet to add some color.

The parents-to-be then showed me the baby onesie that said “bonjour” they bought. So adorable…

We also used a croissant which put the cutest twist to the phrase “bun in the oven” with this typical French pastry!

Jen wanted to hint at her wedding as well and quickly changed into a sparkly dress that her bridesmaids wore on her big day.

We then went down to the Seine river banks for more photos.

It was a truly adorable and fun anniversary and baby announcement photo session in Paris. Rhett will certainly enjoy looking at those photos he got with his parents before even being born!

Merci boucoup!! These are tre bien! We wish you were our wedding photographer a year ago! These are so good. Thank you!! We really enjoyed meeting you!

A pregnancy photo session in Provence

Elodie and Maxime met in 2014. From the first look, their love was meant to be and having a baby will always be their most beautiful achievement.

“We talk like best friends, play like children, fight like husband and wife and protect each other like brother and sister. I’m so thankful that our paths crossed.” says Elodie.

We scheduled the future parents pregnancy photo session on a day of September. We started shooting in the intimacy of their new house in the heart of Provence and their daughter Lou’s girly bedroom.

Then we went to a familiar place for me: my Dad’s garden. He lives nearby and has a beautiful garden which makes a wonderful setting for an intimate photo session. Pink oleander bushes, olive trees, a vegetable garden full of colors, an ethnic hut… we even shot in the vines right outside the house at sunset.

It was such a pleasure to photograph Elodie and Maxime in beautiful Provence! Their little Lou must have been eager to get in front of the camera too, cause she arrived a little earlier than expected, on October 13th, 2018. Here she is in a before and after with Mommy!

Photographe très talentueuse et professionnelle. Nous cherchions un photographe pour immortaliser ma grossesse. Marie a su répondre parfaitement à nos attentes. Elle sait très bien nous conseiller et trouver les bons angles pour faire de magnifiques photos. Elle est à l’écoute et très sympathique. Je la conseille vivement. Je ne manquerais pas de revenir vers elle sans hésiter.
