Birth Photographer and Birth Videographer / Filmmaker

 

     Hi, my name is Paulina Splechta (the ‘ch’ is like a k) and I'm an on-call photographer and videographer based out of south Florida. Photography is my calling, well, to be honest, it's my second calling. I never thought I’d want to married and start a family, and eleven years ago, I met my knight in shining armor, it was the fairytale story I always read about, it was love at first sight and we wanted to start a family from the beginning. Since I was a child I always carried around a disposable or old school film-camera, but I only ever took documentary pictures and video. I wanted to capture all those in between moments, when no one knew I was taking pictures, because I wanted real memories of real life. When we became a parents to our first daughter, six and a half years ago, everything connected and this is what I always wanted to capture for other parents, the first moments when you meet your baby.

     I am currently focusing only on birth stories at this moment. Maternity/family/newborn sessions are on a seasonal basis, during times when I am off-call.
