Paris – The city of light, city of love, city of amazing opportunities. With joy in my heart I left my beautiful island Santorini and flew to Paris to take this amazing family photo shoot of this great Indian couple and their son who live in Paris.
One of the most amazing things one could wish for in life is to have a happy family. Family is a circle of strength, place from where we draw inspiration. My grandma used to say: “Being a family means you are part of something wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.” – This is one of the many reasons why I love taking photo-shoots of families. My lens capture one sаcred moment of their life filed with joy, and this moment stays like that forever! Even when years pass, and the couple gets older, and the kid/kids grow up, they will still be able to return to that amazing moment just by looking at the photos we took that day and remember it all.
Great photos are timeless, and that is precisely what our goal was on this unforgettable journey to Paris: creating unforgettable memories.
The Eiffel Tower
Our first stop was the main landmark, the thing that comes first in our minds when we say Paris – The Eiffel Tower. In here, we started with capturing precious family moments. We took photos on which Saurabh and Kavita were kissing their little boy and showing him how happy they are to have him. The little boy was shy at first, surprised, but he adjusted quickly and started hugging his parents. Then, we went with love photos of the couple. The smiles on their faces, and love in their eyes, are things worth a fortune! We went into the park from where we were able to capture both the beauty of nature and the Eiffel Tower.
The Palais de Chaillot
Kavita and Saurabh were thrilled to show me around and present the amazing beauty of Paris to me. Our next stop was The Palais de Chaillot. In front of it, there are these two amazing statues: La Joie de vivre by Léon Driveir and La Jeunesse by Pierre-Marie Poisson, which stand on the lawns at the bottom of the fountain. These sculptures dated from 1937 and were made for the 1937 Exposition Universelle. We saw an amazing opportunity to capture several pictures of Kavita in front of them. She looked like goddess!
The day was so sunny and bright so we couldn’t let it slip away without taking a walk and admire the beauty of Seine River. They boy was really joyful and happy. He started jumping around and enjoying the day. He loved watching the boats that flow, so his mother got him in her arms, and they both set on the coast and watched the small boats simply floating in the river. They both enjoyed the moment and I captured it so they could have it forever within their hearts.
Musée du Louvre
Our journey was coming to an end. We decided to go to the most precious thing Paris has to over us: Musée du Louvre – Louvre museum. This is where my creativity and inspiration kicked in and we captured this amazing photos of the family having some interesting time together. The boy was a bit tired, so his father got his in his arms. His mother loved to giggle him, and make silly faces. They both laughed. At the end, as the sun was going down, our adventure was coming to an end too. It was an amazing adventure and I am so glad I got a chance to be part of it. Thank you guys and I really hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
