I’ve been hoping to do a shoot at the Parc des Buttes Chaumont for a while now, and was so excited when Melda and Matt wanted to show off their baby bump here! It’s a large park in the north-eastern suburbs, and quite different to the symmetrical and highly manicured gardens you get in central Paris. It’s so beautiful, especially first thing in the morning when apart from a few keen joggers and people doing Tai Chi you can pretty much have the whole place to yourself! An interesting fact I learned was that the suspension bridge was designed by Gustave Eiffel, perhaps better known for a certain iron lattice tower in the west!
Natural environments like this are perfect for maternity shoots as they look and feel so organic and grounding. Melda looked ethereal in her beautiful white dress, channelling her inner earth-mother goddess. Their first baby will be a little boy and is due in July 🙂
