I’m a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Nevada, IA. I love capturing people in the moment: laughing, loving and soaking up the beauty of this day.

LIFE - STYLE - PHOTOGRAPHY
I am a lifestyle photographer in downtown Nevada, IA using natural light to capture those little moments that mean everything to you.
I have the privilege to work with absolutely wonderful families who trust me to snuggle and photograph their littles and honor me with the creation of their memories. I do feel truly blessed.
Nothing is more important to me than maintaining an open heart and mind and capturing the unique personalities that make up your family. Thank you for spending a few minutes here with me. I would really love to meet you and learn a bit about you and yours.
THAT PERSONAL TOUCH
THE BIG PICTURE
THOSE LITTLE MOMENTS
BEAUTIFUL AND TIMELESS
"The collection is STUNNING Paula, so can’t tell you how wonderful it is to have such beautiful and timeless photos of us as a family, each little personality shinning through. And to be in the photos is such a rare treat, you are so widely talented,and the way you capture each moment and each personality, simply perfect! THANK you!!”
A natural light, on-location, in-home, or in-studio
As you can see, I specialize in lifestyle photography.
My goal with every session is to capture you and your family in a relaxed and natural environment.
And when it comes to corporate photography I prefer to do photography that doesn't feel so, well, corporate!
I want to help you tell your authentic story.
I'm Paula, it's so nice to meet you.
I am a very-much-in-love with my hubby of many years and dad to our 3 pretty awesome kids. I was born in Oregon. I believe in Bigfoot - don’t laugh! I met my handsome husband in Texas and we are proud to call Ames, Iowa home these days. I love all babies (the furry kind, too!)
I consider myself to be a very creative person. I see beautiful photographs everywhere and I wish I had an on/off switch (I’m sure my husband does as well!) I love sweet treats, especially doughnuts, and have a secret (not so secret) dream to own a doughnut shop! Oh, and I cannot keep a secret to save my life, especially a happy one!
Other than photography, I enjoy Catan, sleeping late, coffee, kayaking with my man and time with family.
Above all, I believe I am a very blessed person. I enjoy health, a comfy bed, a home amongst a bunch of trees, and a perfectly imperfect family. I have the privilege to work with absolutely wonderful families who trust me to snuggle and photograph their littles and honor me with the creation of their memories. I do feel truly blessed.
I would love to meet you and maybe learn a little bit about you and your family!
