Home is not a place, it’s a feeling. Home is where love resides and memories are created.

Natural photography of your precious family moments ♥


photography of your precious family moments

Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera.

Yousuf Karsh


nice to see you here!

My name is Paulina and I am one of these lucky ones whose work is purely driven by passion. I am Vienna based professional lifestyle family & portrait photographer, licensed by Austrian Chamber of Commerce, who looks for the beauty in real smiles and honest human connections, in ordinary situations.

As photography was my passion ever since I remember, I have taken part in lots of different courses and trainings to develop myslef in this field, as well as completed LIK Academy for Photo and Design in Vienna.

I believe that the most special moments are the 'in-between' ones. That is why I always have my camera ready for creating stories and this is how I would like to photograph a single day of your family life: capturing all, as unique as it is, in the most authentic and natural way.



Do you find this picture powerful?
I do.


My first bath. The very first one! Beautifully captured by my Dad.

I truly believe that photographing is important. You understand that when you look at your old family pictures.

And this is my personal WHY I have chosen to be a photographer.


Having camera in hands gives me a possibility to make a mark in history, to freeze a moment. Not only big moments, like wedding ceremony or welcoming a newborn, but also ordinary situations from your family life deserve to be photographed. You see your messy baby eating or getting his first tooth. Simply: you notice your child growing… Don’t let those moments to be forgotten!




I just have received printed photos and can’t wait to share my happiness! I believe it is very important to capture moments of our life especially such imports ones as a birth of a child. Paulina made a magnificent job to show one hour of our everyday life with a newborn. And believe me it was not easy! There were moments of happiness and moments of sadness. As the result photos are very natural, emotional, such, as you look at them and every time you find another beautiful detail. Paulina is great with babies and with their parents too. She is very professional during a photo shooting and delivers photos quickly. We have ordered as well a photo book, which I can’t wait to see!

Paulina is a beautiful human being and a very talented photographer. She has "the eye" and knows exactly when to catch the right moment, the right expression, the right emotion. We had such a smooth and easy photo session with her. We were just having coffee, chatting and playing with our three year old son while she was capturing those precious moments. No pausing or trying to get our best best smile.. it was spontaneous and natural and this is what we liked most. A beautiful experience that I warmly recommend! Thank you a million Paulina!
