Stunning maternity photo session in the Paris rain

Stunning maternity photo session in the Paris rain. This was one of those photo sessions that made my client very nervous. The forecast was for rain, and lots of it. This is not at all unusual for Paris, especially if you’re visiting in the autumn, winter or early spring. A lot of people visiting Paris don’t realize that Paris is a very rainy city. It’s always a good idea to have an umbrella handy! That said, if I see that it’s going to be very rainy, I will try reschedule my client’s photo session if at all possible, sometimes due to schedules it isn’t, but I try to be flexible. I had been contacted by Lily and her husband Chung, visiting Paris from San Jose, California, about a maternity photo session in Paris at the Eiffel Tower. Often referred to as a babymoon in Paris, Lily and Chung wanted to capture their pregnancy in images to treasure forever, and what better place to do that than Paris! The couple selected the Eiffel Tower as their location.

The morning we met in early November, the rain was coming down at a good clip. Sometimes when it rains, the Eiffel Tower is partially obscured by fog, especially at the top. That thankfully was not the case this day, although foggy Eiffel Tower images can be very romantic. That said, the rain was steady but we were prepared with clear umbrellas, which allowed us a view of all of the scenery around us. Lily was dressed in a gorgeous flowy long gown with a lot of color, and with her hair and makeup professionally applied, she looked absolutely beautiful. Chung was also handsome in his outfit, modern and very put together. This would be a wonderful photo session!

While the rain can be annoying, there is one big advantage to it, and that’s that a lot of people don’t go out in the rain, and photographers actually cancel photo sessions because of it. Not me, I love the peace and tranquility of the rain, and usually there’s very few people out, so you pretty much have the whole place to yourselves. I love this!

I captured Lily and Chung at various points around Trocadero, on the famous staircases and by the fountains, which were off for the season. Lily and Chung are five months along and expecting a beautiful baby boy. It’s their first child, how exciting!

Lily brought sneakers so as we walked around she didn’t have to walk in her heels. After we completed our session at Trocadero, we went riverside for some cute shots along the Seine River. By this time Lily was feeling very waterlogged and concerned about how she looked in the rain, but I think she looked stunning. As a Californian, she just wasn’t used to this much rain.

We continued over to the Bir Hakeim bridge, which is a really stunning landmark. As bridges go, it’s fairly worthless for rain cover, as the wind blows the rain in, but we had several short breaks in the showers during our maternity photo session in Paris and during those times we ditched the umbrellas.

Finally, we finished at the statue at Bir Hakeim to capture the love Lily and Chung have for each other and the love they have for their baby boy. They’re going to be gorgeous and loving parents!

By the end of our babymoon photo session at the Eiffel Tower, we’d all had enough of the rain, it was time to get inside and warm up with some hot chocolate. However, with the clear umbrellas and a great attitude, we were able to make some magic! My very best wishes to this young couple!
