I love photographing families and kids and this past year I was fortunate enough to work with some fabulous French families while I was abroad. This is long overdue considering I went to France in April, but I love these all too much to not share. Adrien my husband is French so every year we go to France to visit his family and friends and it’s always such a fun week but it goes by too fast. Over the last two trips I have realized there is just too much I want to photograph and never enough time, France is far to beautiful to try and capture in one week. So this past year I was so fortunate in a lot of ways to pre-plan a fabulous trip ahead of Adrien and tour parts of France with either his family and or solo and it was one of the best trips of my life. I set up Opera Tours by myself, bakery tours, I spent quality time with his grandmother, I navigated the subway by myself, tackled French Flea Markets, you name it I tried it. It was challenging, invigorating, soul searching, and a beautiful way to explore France. While I was in Paris for 8 days I had the pleasure of working with some amazing families and capturing their fun Parisian family portraits, I was in heaven. I truly adore kids and babies and then to be in France on top of that was just icing on the cake. I had the best time and loved getting to meet so many new families. It was really hard to choose favorites, but here are some of my personal top favorites from the different sessions throughout the week.
