"I have known of MPP and Janelle for a few years now. Seeing the expansion and growth of this business just proves the deep passion of this team of photographers. We had our engagement pictures with Aprille, and we will never get over her talent. She is pleasant, patient, kind, and let us go with the flow. We knew exactly where we wanted to take our pictures, yet we could never imagine how amazing the pictures could turn out. Aprille and MPP, keep up the amazing work!"

"We had such a fabulous experience with My Paris Portraits and with our photographer, Cyril! Everyone was so communicative and professional, and Cyril made the shoot extra special and fun! Highly recommend!"

"Outstanding experience from start to finish! Everybody at MPP was very helpful from the beginning to end. Aprille our talented photographer was amazing with my daughter which made capturing the best photos quick and easy. Posing for pictures in a very crowded tourist place can be a little intimidating for a 7 year old but Aprille made her feel very comfortable. Also, we got the photos back in record time with clear instructions and very user-friendly platform. Thanks to Aprille all of our photos exceeded our expectations. This photo shoot truly added a memorable touch to our daughter’s 7th birthday celebration in the beautiful city of Paris. We definitely had an A+ experience and we will be back for future sessions!"

“My Paris Portraits made our dreams come true! Janelle is absolutely the best at what she does and our photo session with her was the highlight of our trip. Everything about it was magical and so much fun.”

"My shoot with MPP was not only fun, the photos are gorgeous! I shared a Pinterest board with photo inspiration and they went above and beyond to recreate with my spin. They took the time to lay out our route which made it easy for me to plan the outfits for each location. I will absolutely use them again on my next trip to Paris. Aprille thank you so much for capturing my essence!!"

"Had an amazing experience with Cyril. He was attentive, flexible and accommodating given our time constraints and weather conditions. He captured beautiful photographs and we had a lovely experience with him. I would highly recommend My Paris Portraits… the entire experience from booking and choosing location was easy and seamless. They offered lots of suggestions on their blog as well :)"

"My family and I (kids 6 and 8) did a fall mini session with Aprille of My Paris Portraits and we are in love with the photos! It was windy and cold but somehow Aprille caught us at our best, with both natural and posed shots. The communication both before and after the shoot was easy and smooth. Thank you for the gorgeous photos!"

"The photos came out amazing, her final edits to them were great, they gave the pics a very unique look and I still looked like me!"

"We had a perfect photoshooting with Janelle. She is a lovely person, with good vibes, and good skills!
She has a good eye for nice locations to shoot and good ideas for poses."

"Janelle is a warm and nice person to talk to, you feel you know her from before. The photoshoot was done very profesionally and she had lots of patience because we have two kids under 5, I highly recommended if you want pictures from your family in Paris."

"We had our second family photo shoot with Janelle and it turned out amazing. She is easy going, which makes the kids feel so comfortable getting their photo taken."

"I can't say enough great things about my experience with Janelle and My Paris Portraits! She has a wonderful way of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera and on the streets of Paris. 


We've got answers


Q. Do I get to choose my photos? 

After your photoshoot, we sort through the photos, edit all the good ones & upload them to an online gallery. You can choose your favourites to download, and will have the opportunity to purchase more photos (than included in your photoshoot package) if you desire.

Q. What happens if it rains? 

If it's raining, we can still go ahead with the shoot. Some of our favourite photoshoots have happened in the rain! However, we give the option of moving your shoot to another time OR changing your location to a perfect wet-weather spot!

Q. What's your cancellation policy?

At booking, you are charged a 20% non-refundable deposit to lock in your slot. The remainder of your payment will be processed 2 weeks before your photoshoot. If you cancel before the 2 weeks, you will not be charged. If you cancel after, you will receive a 50% refund of the total cost. You have the option to either cancel your photoshoot or rebook for a later time, with no additional charge.
If you cancel within 24 hours of your photoshoot (and it is not an emergency reason). Then you will be first offered the option to reschedule and rebook. If this doesn’t work for you or the photographer, then you will be charged the full amount. 

If you don't show up to your photoshoot with no prior warning, then you will be charged the full amount of your photoshoot. If you would still like photos, you will need to rebook a new photoshoot. 

If you arrive late to your photoshoot this will cut into your photoshoot time and therefore may affect the total amount of photos taken and provided.

Q. Will you photoshop us?

 Nope. Our goal with every photoshoot is to capture real, authentic moments. We're not about making people look fake or not true to themselves. If that's what you're looking for, then we're probably not the best photographers for you. We seek to capture the real, genuine moments, the imperfectly beautiful & beyond precious memories that we believe you will want to remember in the future! That being said, if there's a pimple or something that is temporary and would go away in a couple of weeks we are happy to fix this in post production.

Q. WHEn will we receive our photos

Unless you’ve chosen to expedite your photos, you’ll get an online album one week after your photoshoot. From there, you’ll have the opportunity to choose your favourite photos. And if you’d like to purchase more photos than your original package includes, you can definitely do so!


We recommend that you don't bring a lot of bags on the photoshoot, but with the bags that you do bring these can either be held by the photographer or left at the photographers feet. We are very careful when taking photos of your gear, and have never had any problems! 


There are a couple of options. If you are doing part of your photoshoot in a Paris cafe, then this is a great way to change your outfit. Otherwise you can use a public restroom, or find a secluded, quiet place somewhere on the photoshoot, and do a fast outfit change.
