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.

P x

You will be seen & remembered.

  • "We were absolutely delighted when we received our family photos from Paula. Being a mum herself, Paula was able to relate to the madness of having two young children. Our girls felt comfortable with her and she was able to capture the craziness of our little family. Her fun and natural approach to taking photos was beautifully translated into her images. We love her style and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for personal and unique family photos."

  • "We hired Paula to take photos of our new baby boy. We were very impressed from the start with her professionalism. Paula made us feel relaxed during the whole process and was very clear and creative with her direction. We were very happy with the quality of photographs as a result and would recommend Paula to anyone wishing to capture this very important family occasion."

  • "We were lucky enough to have Paula from Ivy & The Fox do our first family photo shoot & we were so thrilled with our photographs! Paula was so patient (picture 3 children on a Sunday afternoon who weren't all so keen to have their photos taken, including one unpredictable newborn!) She made us feel super comfortable & never rushed us. Paula was very creative with limited space to work with & we all had a lot of fun! We received so many fab photos from the shoot that I don't think I could even choose a favourite, they were gorgeous, relaxed & natural which was just what we were after. Thank you so much!"

  • "I have never enjoyed being in front of a camera, so the thought of doing a pregnancy photo shoot was very daunting, but one I also really wanted to do. Paula came to our house to do the shoot for us and I immediately felt comfortable. She made me feel confident and gorgeous in front of the camera (even though I felt like the size of a house with my huge baby bump!) I am forever grateful we captured it on camera....thank you Paula!"
