This year I have been busy jumping all over town to photograph beautiful Paris in Spring and I wanted to give you all a tour so you could see just why Paris in Spring has a reputation all on its own. This year’s Spring has been super late – and cold! – and my photographer friends and I eagerly waited for weeks it seemed before the buds finally began opening. I have been so happy to see these blooms pop open little by little across the city and have visited my favorite spots over the last three or so weeks to capture them all to share with you.

Enjoy this photographic tour through Springy Paris. Click on the photos to be taken to where you can purchase the images.

Hôtel de Ville

Place de l’Hôtel de Ville
75004 Paris

The two magnolias flanking the Étienne Marcel statue on the Seine side of Paris’s city hall are always a favorite spot to kick off the spring season in Paris.


Eiffel Tower

Champ de Mars, 5 Avenue Anatole France
75007 Paris

The Eiffel Tower makes a beautiful background for pretty much anything, especially delicate flowers.


Jardin des Plantes

57 Rue Cuvier
75005 Paris

A favorite spot from Spring to Fall, I love to see the magnolias, lilacs, poppies, and cherry blossoms here.


Parc Monceau

35 Boulevard de Courcelles
75008 Paris

I’ve lived close to Parc Monceau a couple of times, and it has served as my running spot each time. I enjoy seeing it change throughout the seasons.


Paris Architecture

You can find beautiful architecture throughout the whole city, of course, but it’s always a special treat to find angles like these when Spring is in full bloom.
