For a family portrait session on their first trip to Paris, Gloria, her husband Brandon, and two kids Kyle and Kayla chose the most iconic background: the Eiffel tower. They met our photographer Elena Usacheva for a stroll on Bir Hakeim bridge, Trocadero gardens and of course the famous Trocadero esplanade, offering one of the best views of the landmark. As usually with Elena, they had not only great photos, but also lots of fun!

A month before their wedding, Hagar and Shady took a short romantic break in Paris.
