I'm Paulina, I'm a mom to two, a wife to my best friend, a daughter to immigrant parents who are the hardest workers I have ever known. When I describe myself, I always end up talking about my family, because my family is my everything. When I meet you and commit to documenting your birth story, you become my family to me too. And so, you become my everything.
My own births were captured by my loving partner and best friend: my husband. And because I don't have a single photo of him playing the role of my best friend, my support, my rock, I know the feeling of what I am missing out on. The feeling so many of my 2nd time birth clients describe to me:
They don't remember what their partner's face looked like the moment their baby was born.
The only memory they have of their birth is what is embedded in their mind, but they don't have a single photo that shows the biggest smile they had on their face, the tears of joy streaming down their cheek, the first cry from their baby's lungs that filled the room with happiness, giggles and relief. They don't remember looking at their partner during birth to see their reaction.
And because I missed out on having what to me are the greatest days of my life documented with my husband in them...
as an artist... it makes me ever the more passionate and determined to capture your story so that you don't have to struggle to remember.
From the days when your baby is growing just below your heart beat, to the day they are in your arms, looking up at you.
THE BOCA RATON BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE WITH PAULINA
When you hire me to document your birth story, we start preparing for your birth story from the very first day. I work with only two families every month, this way my full attention and priority can be on you. I am available to you via text, phone call, and email through your entire pregnancy. I go on-call for you from 38 weeks. I do not travel outside a specific distance from my home in any direction so that I can attend your birth as soon as you’re ready for me to arrive.
Whenever your baby decides to enter the world, I'll be there. Your birthing day will be uniquely your own, and I strive to honor the sacredness of your story. I document the big and small moments of your birthing day quietly and unobtrusively. Your baby and your body lead the way. In each birth story, there is strength, there is joy, there is transformation. My job is to find these moments so that you and your family can look back on them in the years to come.
