Photograph of me by the awesome Wendy Laurel in Maui, my happy place… I swear I am a Hawaiian trapped in an Aussie’s body…
Aloha! I’m Paula. I am a photographer, graphic designer & mama who looooves creating prettiness, documenting life, protecting memories & teaching others to do the same.
If you’re anything like me, being in front of the camera makes you feel suuuuper awkward! I get it. That is one of the reasons why I invest in professional photo shoots with my favourite photographers, so when I am shooting a family I know exactly how they are feeling – super awkies.
Another reason is because I am in hardly any of our photographs! Yup, yup, if you were to look through our rad collection of photographs, apart from the odd cute selfie or two, you’d think I wasn’t apart of my family.
Mama you need to get in front of the camera too! One day when your mini babes are looking through their childhood photos they will want to see & remember you too (…& laugh at your hilarious fashion choices).
Your babes do not care about any of the hang-ups or excuses you tell yourself as to why you don’t want to be photographed now. Ever looked back on a photo from years ago & think “Far out I looked so young/healthy/beautiful back then”? That will happen again years from now of photos taken today. This is because you are beautiful now. You will always be beautiful mama, even if you do not believe it in this moment.
Love your whole body, just as you are now. Your mini’s do. To them, you are perfect in this moment, right now.
I would be stoked to hear from you, heck let’s be friends! I love to let mama’s shine in front of the camera. I love to teach others to take rad photos too. I love to collaborate in creative adventures. If you sound like my new bestie, shoot me a message & tell me how I can serve you.
You will be seen & remembered.
