– ABOUT PAULINE –
Love – People commission me because I can help them make a visual statement that celebrates how and what they feel in their heart. With a beautiful portrait we capture what people and animals look like, but more so their personality and the connection between them. Everything about that moment, including the beauty, grace and energy is saved as a forever memory. In essence I photograph LOVE.
The beginning – Ten years ago I became a professional portrait photographer by chance. We had just moved to Oregon and had adopted our dog Maggie. On one of our walks I noticed this very elderly dog walking gingerly through her yard. I felt a strong desire to document her with a photograph so her owners would have a portrait to remember her by. Before I had a chance to do so, she had died. Devastated and disappointed I set out to find aging dog subjects to honor them and bring joy to their owners. Not just handsome dogs; I also wanted those with missing teeth, a grizzled smile and thinning hair. I’ve had hundreds in front of my camera. All perfectly imperfect and each one deeply loved by their humans. Soon I was featured in the local newspaper and then O, the Oprah Magazine featured my work.
Style – My work is undoubtedly influenced by my North European roots – simplicity and minimalism, muted colors and clean design. What makes my work stand out is my drive to capture what my clients feel in their heart.
• Begin with the end in mind
You know you want beautiful images of your precious beloved but not sure what you’re going to do with them. No problem. In our consult, we’ll go over everything from beginning to end and discuss the different options available to you. During our pre-session talk, we discuss your vision and decorating style as well as how and where you’d like to display your new portraits. I’m a big believer in wall art that makes a statement. So many of my clients tell me that the artwork makes them feel happy every time they see it.
• The consult
We’ll connect via phone/skype or in person. We’ll talk about your motivation and vision for the photo session, and I can get the scoop on the subject and your relationship together. What makes your bond so special and what has changed in your life since the first time you laid eyes on each other. Understanding the dynamics and the bond you have allows me to capture your beloved’s beauty and personality. All your questions will be answered, plus you’ll have a full understanding of the investment.
