Hey there, Friend…
I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Paula Bianca, a photographer and storyteller.
I am also wife of 6 years to my love and best friend, Jay, and momma to two sweet girls, Olivia, age 5 and Emma, age 2. We are a military family, which means we have to move around occasionally, but we call Northern California home. I am a miscarriage survivor, and our sweet Emma is our wonderful rainbow baby after losing our 2nd child (Till we meet again, sweet baby). If any of you have gone through this and need to talk, I would love to connect with you.
My heart is to help people like you bring the focus back to what really matters — Family. I want to be a part of capturing those special milestones through photography and storytelling, in a meaningful and vibrant way, so that your grandchildren and great-grandchildren can look back at your life and have something beautiful and tangible to look at and treasure. I want you to have images that make them want to ask questions and urge you to tell your story, and their story.
I would love to help you capture beautiful milestones with your loved ones. I offer photography services for families, seniors, children, engagements, weddings. If there is a story that needs to be told, I want to be there helping you tell it!
Another passion of mine is for helping someone like you become a better storyteller and memory-keeper. Its about quality time and making memories, and documenting your personal history for your loved ones. I believe it is up to us to be the storymakers and storytellers for our families, and a lot of my blogging and resources center around those topics. Feel free to poke around my site and explore!
I’d love to be able to connect with you and give you the tools to become a better memory-keeper and storyteller. I offer photography classes for parents, kids, and beginners, to help you develop the skills to capture your own everyday story with beautiful images. I also have a private Memory-Keepers Community on Facebook where I share all kinds of free support and tools for all my storytellers.
Some other fun things about me:
- I am a first generation Romanian immigrant. My parents brought me and my little brother to the United States when I was 2.
- I love journaling, scrapbooking, crafting cards and handmade paper decor, and cooking tasty meals and desserts.
- I am passionate about sharing the love of Jesus with the world. His story is the most beautiful love story of all time!
- I enjoy curling up with a good book on rainy days.
- My favorite weekend activity is Netflix binging with my love.
- I occasionally do a little bit of amateur quilting and I just LOVE writing and receiving hand-written letters.
- I would do just about anything for a good piece of cheesecake (come-on!) or a nice long interrupted nap (anyone wanna come over and watch my kids?)
I love hearing from clients who enjoyed their experience with me as much as I did. I am majorly a words of affirmation lady, so to me its the same as awarding me a million bucks. Ok not quite, but you get the idea — it totally makes my day.
“I have shot with Paula multiple times and every time she continues to amaze me. She takes her role as a functional artist seriously, making sure the shots work for you. She always makes sure that whatever the shoot is, that she catches the light just perfectly, as well as the purpose of the shoot. She is incredibly professional and makes the whole experience so fun — especially for people who may not be comfortable in front of a camera. Paula makes it a priority to get your photos to you quickly. She has a great eye for detail and will never release a photo that isn’t of beautiful quality. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough for whatever portraits need you and your family has.”
– Gabrielle Bosche, Arlington, VA
“I have shot with a few photographers but none as thorough and considerate as Paula. Her obvious priorities were to compose pictures that would satisfy both of us and to be sure I was comfortable in the process. Her turnaround time is phenomenal and its obvious that she’s put in the work to make sure your photographs are something to be proud of. I would be happy to have her shoot me again and definitely carry her card with me to suggest others to enjoy her talents as well.”
– Christyn Trelow, St Louis, MO
“From my engagement photos and wedding photos to my Christmas cards and daughters yearly pictures Paula has done them all…she is amazing at capturing the perfect light at the perfect moment. I have never been disappointed with her work.”
– Kristine Adams, Rocklin, CA
