Hi! I'm Paula and I'm so thrilled you're here considering me to be your photographer! I've been doing photography since I was 17 years old and was a senior in high school myself! Over the last eight years in business I have been able to photograph family and senior portraits from Union, Morris, Bergen and Ocean County and service other areas of the beautiful garden state.
I'm a wife and a cat mom to two crazy boys, Salem & Comet and 100% a jersey girl. While photography is where my heart is, I have also been working in antiques since I was 15 years old and I've gotten to see some really historical artifacts and art over the years. Russian is my first language and I speak in ASL as well!
I always have a fresh set of flowers in my office, a candle lit on my desk and my camera in my hand and ready to photograph the next adventure in my life! In my downtime when I am not photographing my amazing clients, I am either working on my other candle/home decor business or spending time with my husband doing something outdoors or looking at new home decor or craft supplies at target or micheals or homegoods... or amazon.
I've been blessed to meet both of my idols in NYC. Billie Joe Armstrong and Chris Evans. I've been supporting the New Jersey Devils since I was about 5 years old and have been blessed to meet so many of the current and previous players on the team.
I've been blessed to work for the NJ Devils in 2015 as a photographer and be apart of their creative team. I've also worked for the NFL & NY Giants as an event photographer and I was the first female lead photographer in the NWHL.
My sports photography has been published over the years on on NHL.com, NFL.com and NWHL.com.
I discovered my love for written and visual media when I entered my freshman year at Communications High School in 2010, and have been honing my skills both behind and in front of the camera ever since. My favorite hobbies are playing dungeons and dragons, doing tech for a weekly Rocky Horror Picture Show production, and spending time with my two dogs, Jax and Radley. This is my first post-college job after earning my journalism degree from Rutgers University Newark, and I'm excited to see where it takes me!

"Paula and her team are wonderful!! Not only does Paula capture such great photos, but she is extremely organized and terrific at communicating, from booking to answering questions! During our family session my 4 year old was very shy, we went into it with the thought we may not get tons of shots of him. Paula gave him the space he needed and time to warm up to her, once he did she was able to get some of the best pictures of him! I would highly recommend Paula to everyone!"

"Paula was excellent during our family photos! The beach we originally agreed upon actually ended up being closed due to weather and she made accommodations with no notice. She made sure everyone was comfortable and that we got absolutely everything we wanted. Half way through our session, our 8 year old told us, “this is the best day ever!”"

"Paula did a family photo shoot for us and we absolutely loved both her and her work. She went above and beyond to find the perfect locations ahead of time. She kept track of the weather in the days leading up to the shoot to ensure we would have gorgeous weather the day of. She came prepared the day of, with endless options for poses. Paula is extremely responsive through messages from the time I reached out to book a shoot, until the end, to ensure I was satisfied with the photos she took."
