My name is Paula and I am so happy to meet you!
I am a born and bread Southern California girl who loves the outdoors. I am a wife, mom to six beautiful children, counselor, avid rock climber and now I have happily added “photographer” to my list of things I do.
As my kids have gotten older, I have realized just how quickly you forget those little quirks that your kids had when they were little and you forget all those special little moments that make up your day. You think that you will never forget them, but you do! Unless you have some way of documenting them.
That is why photography is so important to me. It is the way that I have been preserving all the moments that are so special to me. I love looking back on a photo and being taken straight back to that time in my life when my kids were younger…and even still, now that they are older, I still capture those moments that I want to hold on to forever.
When I photograph your family, I don’t just stand you all in front of my camera and tell you to smile. I gently place you and direct you to start interacting together so that I can catch those special bonds and moments between you and your loved ones. And while I am a bit reserved and shy I will roll around on the grass and make silly noises if that is what it takes to get the perfect photo. It is always my goal to make your photo session a fun experience in itself.
I strive to honor your memories with creativity and style and know that every life story is significant, valuable and worthy to be told.
