What you'll do

This portrait photo walk is for all visiting Paris - individuals, couples but also groups of friends who would like to bring home their beautiful portraits from Paris.

Once we meet I will shortly explain how to pose, how to handle body, movement and face mimicry - all to make nice portraits. I will tell you what to do to look naturally and good on photos.

We will start shooting photos right away! We'll walk through the most picturesque areas in Paris stopping for taking portrait photos along the way. We can meet to take photos in one of the possible locations: Pont Alexandre III, Pont de Bir-Hekeim, Louvre/Palais Royal or Montmartre. We will use amazing views of Paris as a backgound to your portraits. You will will bring home beautiful photographs to remember your time in here.

My photo expertise is in portrait and fashion photography. You can find some of my works here: https://www.instagram.com/helastaniszewska/

possible locations: Pont Alexandre III, Louvre/Palais Royal, Montmartre, Pont de Bir-Hakeim or Eiffle Tower area.
Other things to note
In case of rain take your umbrella, or I also can suggest an alternative route if you prefer to.

Hela is not only a talented photographer but she is warm and friendly and puts you very much at ease. The photo shoot is more like a nice time with a friend who just happens to take spectacular photos of you. She made me feel like a Parisian and my photos look like a magazine spread. Highly recommend!

It was my first photo session in Paris and I was alone. I booked Hela’s session a little bit last minute but she responded directly! I love how taking photos with her feels like having your closest friend taking photos of you. We talked alot about our lives just so to make me comfortable & find what are the best photo theme for me. She suggested many poses too just to make the photo more alive Love my one hour with Hela! Would love to meet her again if i get to visit Paris a lil bit longer ☺️ can’t wait for the end result! Thanks Hela! Take care!

Hela is an amazing person. She made me feel super comfortable and we got some very beautiful pictures. All I wanted was to capture my time here but I got more than that.

Absolutely amazing experience. Hela is so professional, and always friendly. And the photos are so pretty good, better than my expectation. Highly recommend this to anyone.

Hela was a great photography. She made our family feel comfortable and helped capture special moments without forcing it. Her directions on where to meet where descriptive and easy to follow. She picked a perfect location and we moved around to get different shots with the Eiffel tower in the background. Thank you so much for taking the time with us! She edited photos and had them to us in a timely manner (before we even returned home form our trip!) . We are pleased with the photo session and would recommend her to anyone looking for a smooth, easy, photo session to capture memories of their trip!
