SOUTH FLORIDA’S BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER

and BIRTH VIDEOGRAPHER

WHO EXCLUSIVELY CAPTURES BIRTH


 

I work quietly and discreetly to capture your birth in a candid and beautiful way. Many obstetricians and midwives across south Florida feel comfortable with me capturing your birth story as a trusted professional in your birth space.

The journey to meeting your baby is unique, with powerful emotions and once in a lifetime moments. I am a story teller in your safe space.

 
 
 

Messages from my past birth clients

“She has a true passion for birth and the families she photographs. Not only did she create amazing images, she provided us with much needed emotional support. Paulina truly cares about you, and telling your story.”
— SHELBY, BIRTHED AT GOOD SAMARITAN MEDICAL CENTER IN WEST PALM BEACH
“I ended up going into labor New Years Eve, she left her family to be at our birth early New Years day without question.....amazing. I didn’t even realize she was there, she was so quiet and in the background doing her thing.

She took the most amazing photos of our birth, and they were all taken with our privacy in mind and very tasteful. She has this way of angling the photo just right that nothing is showing, but it still has this rawness about it.

I have already forgotten most of my labor with my daughter, but looking at the pictures help me remember what an amazing moment it was.”
— ERIN, BIRTHED AT PALMS BIRTH HOUSE
“Paulina’s heart and soul goes into knowing the ins and outs of her clients, what their birth plan is and carefully captures the most intimate and beautiful moments of birth.”
— EMILY, BIRTHED AT BOCA RATON REGIONAL HOSPITAL
“Life is busy and moves quickly but I have those photos and that experience to look back on and one day my daughter will see what amazing women were in her life from the start thanks to Paulina”
— KRISTEN, BIRTHED IN BOYNTON BEACH
“I felt completely comfortable with her in such a private event - she did not interfere yet she captured one of the most beautiful stories of our family’s life perfectly and went above and beyond to help me understand my daughters birth story. She did not miss a moment, the smallest peck my 2 year old son snuck in, mouthed whispers of I love you”
— LINDSAY, BIRTHED IN PEMBROKE PINES
“Paulina did more than I even hoped she would or could. Seeing our first reactions to our daughter is so special and not something many people get to have since it’s usually daddy behind the camera. We didn’t even know she was there during the high action moments. She is tasteful and respectful and so sweet. She went so above and beyond for us to make us feel comfortable, even before I went into labor! She had the best advice for me when I was freaking out in the days leading up to the birth. I feel like I gained a close friend and we are so lucky we found Paulina”
— TRINITY, BIRTHED AT WEST BOCA MEDICAL CENTER
“She is very discreet and respectful and her work is just breathtaking. My husband is deployed to Afghanistan so he was watching over facebook video and she took the pictures in such a way that you could really see his part in being present and the emotions he was feeling.”
— ASHLYN, BIRTHED AT BROWARD HEALTH FT LAUDERDALE
“I wanted to see my husbands expression when he laid eyes on our child for the first time....and I did. We just received our birth film and we both cried. Your birth is often filled with so much emotion that you forget it moments after. We will never forget ours.”
— LESLIE, BIRTHED AT JUPITER MEDICAL CENTER
“LITERALLY in tears writing this, We had the most absolutely incredible video that I watch Weekly, if not daily, of our incredible labor. She was there for us through our labor every second of the way in every way that we needed her. She worked so well with our midwife team and we are so excited for the next labor and birth with her as well!!!”
— ROCHELLE, BIRTHED AT HOME IN JUPITER
 

PAULINA SPLECHTA'S BACKGROUND

I’ve photographed nearly 100 births in south Florida in almost five years and experienced two births with my own daughters who are 3 and 6 years old. I am a member of IAPBP and use professional Canon gear (without microphones, no large equipment) and I carry liability insurance. But the most important part of the work I do is my commitment to honoring the important role I play as part of your birth team — documenting your unique birth story.
