Are you searching for a photographer to do a family photoshoot in Paris? If you are considering an in-home family session, I would love to share with you a glimpse into a recent indoor session. Particularly because this family had such a palpable connection and friendship that shined through their final collection of images.

An indoor family photo session is ideal for families who like the privacy and flexibility that an in-home session offers. This was the case for this family – they didn’t want an outdoor session because they didn’t want that feeling of others watching them while I photographed their family moments.

While I have a selection of outdoor locations that are nearly empty for a family photoshoot in Paris (I like locations away from the crowds), it is not always possible to guarantee there won’t be passersby. Especially in Paris! So, an indoor session is the best option for those who might feel self-conscious while being photographed in a public space.

In-home sessions are also ideal for families who live in a spacious and luminous apartment or house with a clean/fresh decor style.

I often get asked: can you achieve your signature style of luminous and clean images in any home?

To achieve the aesthetic you see in my images, I need some key elements. A LOT of natural light, soft light (no direct sunlight coming through the window), white walls, light-colored decor pieces, and your family wearing neutral/pastel outfits.

But what if you live in a dark home, or your home decor is colorful/dark AND you want an image collection that is luminous and clean? My suggestion is to do your family photoshoot in Paris outdoors. I have a curated list of outdoor locations that allow me to achieve my signature refined style. And if an in-home session is important to you for sentimental value, we could always create an experience with custom-tailored pricing that would include an in-home and outdoor session. So you get the best of both options without having to choose one or the other!

About your family and baby photographer

Hi, there! My name is Mariana. I am so thankful you are looking at my work on my website and blog. 

As a fine art maternity, baby, and family photographer, I specialize in families with young children. I am currently ranked the number one photographer in Toulouse, France, by the Photojournalist Family Association.

If you love my work, and you are looking for an English-speaker photographer in France, I would love for us to start planning your session.

Together, we will create a collection of fine art love-filled images through a stress-free experience. My approach to photography includes a mix of very natural posing and photojournalistic moments. This allows for an experience where your whole family feels comfortable and relaxed. So all you really have to do is to enjoy being with each other.

If you live in Toulouse, you can opt to have your session in the comfort of your own home. Also, at a beautiful park, open field, or even at my studio. For destination family sessions, I offer in-home and outdoor sessions. Because of my passion for traveling, I serve families worldwide, with regular trips to Paris, London, Marseille, Basel, and Zurich. I also love photographing in Dordogne and Pays-Basque.
