Best locations for a family photoshoot in Paris


Trocadero - the iconic location with the best view of the Eiffel tower that will be unavailable due to Olympics from mid-March to September 2024! Another thing to keep in mind - it's only possible to shoot here at sunrise, since it gets very crowded and a bit unsafe with pick pockets during the day. There are no ramps here either, so if you have a stroller this is not the best choice for you.

Pont de Bir-Hakeim and avenue de Camoens - two locations adjacent to Trocadero that offer a great alternative to avoid the crowds especially if you'd like to shoot during the day or in the afternoon!


The Louvre - perfect for any kind of shoots and, unless it's blocked off for some special event, it's possible to do great shots here at any time of the day without catching other people in the background!

Right next to it is also Palais Royal, which is another amazing location safe for kids to run around during the shoot and let parents enjoy some couple portraits too!

Along the Seine - pretty much anywhere by the water is a great idea for families with older kids. I can take you to Ile Saint-Louis to look at the ducks and swans or we can wait for the Eiffel tower to glow after watching the skateboarders at Palais de Tokyo. Alexandre III bridge or Pont des Arts or Pont Neuf - there are just so many amazing views along the river to choose from.
