Senior photo session in Paris
Jessica’s mother booked a senior photo session in Paris with us, The Parisian Photographers. She wanted to have senior solo portrait photos of her daughter while she was in Paris as a student for one year. Jessica missed the chance to have her senior pictures taken in the US when she was in her final year of high school. So with her senior photo session in Paris she was finally able to catch up on this.
Senior photo session in Paris in winter
For Jessica’s mother it was also the perfect excuse to have beautiful Paris solo portrait pictures of her daughter. So she offered Jessica this senior photo session in Paris with us. She decided to have her senior photo session in Paris in winter, which was great. Because first of all Paris is pretty empty at this time of the year. So we had all the beautiful photoshoot locations such as Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Tuileries and Palais Royal basically for us as there were not many people around in the morning.
Secondly we love winter sunrises as they are more colourful and dramatic as in summer. So we were happy to catch a beautiful sunrise at the Eiffel Tower for some Paris solo portrait pictures with beautiful light. We were also lucky as on the day of our senior photo session in Paris we had great weather. It was cold but the sun was shining and we had blue sky.
Jessica also brought such cute winter outfits to her senior photo session in Paris. She definitely did not want to freeze so she was well prepared: She wore jeans, boots and a warm wool sweater. On top of that she simply brought two different upper layers: a leather jacket and an elegant burgundy coat with fake fur collar. So with just a few items and this simple trick she had three outfits – with jacket, with coat, only in sweater – for her senior winter photo session in Paris. So Jessica was able to vary for more casual and more elegant winter solo portrait photographs in Paris.
Guiding you for your Paris solo portrait photos
Moreover Jessica’s mother was a little concerned at first that her daughter would feel a bit shy or wouldn’t feel comfortable in front of the camera for her senior photo session in Paris. As her English speaking Paris photographers we told her that she wouldn’t have to worry. We can always help with tips and guide you with ideas for poses. This is especially important in the beginning of a Paris solo portrait photoshoot.
We always start just by talking a little bit, so that we get to know each other and so that you feel comfortable with us. Then for the first photos we tell you how to stand and were to look, simply to break the ice and make you feel at ease in front of the camera for your solo pictures in Paris. After a few first shots if you feel confident, have ideas for poses and want to move naturally then we just follow you. If you prefer to have guidance we keep helping you with poses and ideas – we got you. However for Jessica it actually seemed easy from the beginning.
This is what our English speaking photographers said about the senior photo session in Paris with Jessica: “It was such a great Paris solo photoshoot with Jessica. She was always smiling and had this natural simplicity in front of the camera – she was such a natural. We were so happy to be able to take timeless solo portrait photos of her while she was studding abroad in Paris and to also send them to her family back home! We cannot wait to meet Jessica and her mother again one day in Paris!“
