Hi, I’m Paulina and I am a storyteller.
Since I was a child, I always had a disposable camera in my hand or one of my dad’s old school film-cameras, documenting spontaneous, behind the scenes photographs. I was always fascinated by those moments when no one knew they were being photographed, the real memories of real life happening.
When my husband and I became a parents to our first daughter seven years ago, I uncovered that vulnerable, desperate motherhood love for the first time in my life.
I have been a photographer for over ten years, but that was the first time I realized, that I always want to capture the moment you meet your baby & how you transform and are reborn by parenthood.
I focus only on birth stories & sibling meeting stories.
I offer Motherhood Révélation Series sessions once per year.
