Romantic lovestory couple kissing at Trocadero by the Eiffel Tower captured by Paris Photographer Anastasia Abramova-Guendel TheFlyingPoodle

I was fully planning to stay in maternity leave the whole 2,5 months after our little one was born, but it turned out I miss working too much! So on the first day of Russian summer (in France seasons don't start on the 1st of June etc. but rather on the days of equinoxes of the sun, hence in France it was still spring), I met up with Julia and Sergey for my second photoshoot that morning! Yep, not only did I get back to my Paris Photographer duties when Dante was only 25 days old, but I had to take over all of Federico's IheartParisFr shoots because our super-dad got sick. Needless to say it was a challenging month so far but I enjoyed so much a little break from baby duties to be capturing in the city of love again!

This is how typical 1 hour romantic couple lovestory photosession looks like. We start at about 30 minutes after sunrise to have the best morning light and to avoid having too many tourists in the background. Trocadero plaza is the best place to capture those iconic images of the Eiffel Tower. It offers several different angles for portraits as well as a big fountain at the bottom of the museum complex which is summer is blowing spectacular jets of water that look really cool on photos. We have walked all the way to the base of the fountain and then explored the area around the carousel. Finally we walked down to the Seine at Pont d'Iéna to finish our photoshoot there.  It was a beautiful morning for Julia and Sergey's wedding anniversary!
