“We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.”

By Kate Thurmes

Welcome, I am Mariana de Albuquerque!

I am a mom of two adorable little boys and wife to the best dad and husband.

Our daily life is filled with noise, laughter, trips to the Jardin des Plantes, long breastfeeding sessions, and books.

Since becoming a mother, I have begun to appreciate the gift of time. Every day now seems to pass so quickly. I often find myself looking at my children and wishing I could freeze time and everyday moments to savor this stage of our lives a little longer.

That’s why I love photography! Photography can stop time and record our family history through beautiful images that will one day become meaningful treasures.

How I can help you today

As a Paris family photographer, I provide a relaxing experience for your maternity, newborn or family session. With the main purpose of creating images that are beautiful, timeless, and truly meaningful to you. A collection of images that capture how you really feel during this season of your life.

I am a photographer with images published internationally in blogs and magazines. I specialize in working with families with children from 0 to 6 years old.

I share my time between Paris and Toulouse.
