Melanie was looking for a maternity Paris family photo session in Paris and our team of The Parisian Photographers was recommended by a friend of hers who had already worked with us. Not only was Melanie looking for Paris portrait photos of her beautiful family but there was also a third family member on the way. So she also wanted to add Paris maternity photos for her baby announcement.
As professional photographer in Paris I have a lot of experience shooting with families and young children, which was important to Melanie. The first thing Melanie and I discussed when planning her maternity Paris family photo session were possible Paris photoshoot locations.
Melanie saw pictures in our online gallery of The Parisian Photographers and liked a lot the two following bridges in Paris: Bir Hakeim bridge and Alexandre III bridge. These two locations can be easily combined as they are only a 10-15 minute ride apart. However that would also have meant: getting their little daughter up early in the morning in order to do a two hour maternity Paris family photo session including a cab ride between the two locations. And Melanie decided that this wasn’t ideal – too long and exhausting for their little child.
Her priority was to get some great Paris family portraits and maternity pictures in Paris featuring the Eiffel Tower. So as their local Paris photographer I came up with a more flexible solution: I suggested to meet at Trocadero and start with family portrait photos with a great view on the Eiffel Tower. After a little hour of photoshoot and depending on the mood of their little daughter we could continue their family photoshoot at the Seine riverside and Bir Hakim bridge for more Paris family and maternity photos with the Eiffel Tower.
Maternity Paris family photo session at the Eiffel Tower
On the day of their maternity Paris family photo session we were lucky with the weather and had great sunshine. Their family photoshoot went very smoothly, everybody was having fun and also their cute little daughter was in a great mood – as you can see on their Paris family pictures. She even took off in the air for the camera, flying a bit before landing again safely in daddy’s arms. As their English speaking photographer in Paris I was confident at this point that we were able to go for the full two hours of photoshoot.
So after our first part of the photoshoot on Trocadero square, we went to a park on the way, where the family took a much deserved break. It also gave us the time to include a wardrobe change, so that for the second Paris photoshoot location the family was able to wear a different outfit. As experienced Paris photographer I have a mobile foldable changing cabin for these occasions, that I can bring along for any Paris photography session that requires changing clothes.
Once the family had changed outfits and their little child had a snack on a bench, we went down to the Seine riverside and continued their maternity Paris family photo session. There are many beautiful spots on this stretch of the river bank and it leads directly to Bir-Hakeim bridge.
Once we were reached the bridge with Eiffel Tower view, we finished their maternity Paris family photo session with pictures of the couple holding a onesie for the new baby they were expecting. It said in French: „Bonjour“. I thought this was such a lovely idea for their Paris baby announcement photos at the Eiffel Tower.
