August is a very special time in Paris: the summer is in full swing but the city is unusually quiet, green and enjoyable. What can be better than a walk around almost empty courtyards of the Louvre, a morning stroll along the Seine river, or a cup of coffee in a nearby café with your loved one? Soon to be married, Pyae Mon and Phyo Min did exactly that in the company of our photographer Catherine O'Hara. That morning, the City of Light belonged to this lovely couple!

Light is undoubtedly instrumental in photography. As photographers, we love to put our participants in the best light during our portrait sessions, and the best time for that happens to be... that's right, early in the morning! While waking up early after a long flight towards your well-planned vacation may not sound very exciting at first, we have to say it is absolutely worth the effort. Here are 4 reasons why you should start your portrait session soon after sunrise...

Congratulations on your engagement, Fion and Max!

Carly and Matthew have known each other for many years and have already visited Paris on several occasions.

Outdoor portrait sessions, whether romantic or family style, are a great opportunity to leave your own camera or smartphone behind, keep beautiful memories of your trip, and to simply enjoy the time with your loved ones and the city around you! Unlike studio portraits, outdoor sessions are subject to various weather conditions. While you may easily pose indoors in a fancy dress or a smart shirt, the same outfit may not be the most suitable one for a windy December day in Paris or a foggy morning in London. The key ingredient for feeling comfortable is therefore dressing according to the temperature, whether it's a hot summer day or a cool autumn afternoon, because feeling good means looking good!
Aaron, Sarah, Nathaniel, Lily and little Caleb met with our photographer Hermione McCosh this March for a fun family portrait session around Big Ben in London.

Good mood and smiles are the key to great memories!
