Hi there!

My story

With a simple and natural style, filled with light and love, each session is embraced with purpose, filling images with sweet moments and beauty.

I'm Paulina, a catholic believer, photographer + mom from Socal. 

As a maternity, newborn, and family photographer my passion is to capture the magic of motherhood and to create a community for women, no matter their season of life. When I'm not shooting or editing, you'll find me being a mom to one fearless eleven year old. I call the historic city of San Juan Capistrano home. And if we’re gonna be friends, you should know that I don’t like coffee at all, I will send you dog memes every day, and I absolutely will make you dance against your will. 

Fun Facts

I love naps. Just add a pillow, a comfy blanket, and a good dose of afternoon sun and you have the perfect ingredients for a little siesta.

Not to brag but my carrot cake recipe is the best in the land (and I have the ribbon to prove it), after entering the OC Fair baking contest, and winning first place! 

One of my favorite things to do is roller skate! I pull up my knee high socks, put on my headphones, lace up my mint roller skates and off I go.

I have an incredibly handsome Australian Shepherd named Noah, who is obsessed with cuddles, treats and water.

My weakness? Avocados. Just take my money.

I always wanted to be a photographer, but it didn’t become a reality until I became a mother. And so, in honor of my daughter, I took the last four letters of my name and her name, and Lina + Lena Photography was born.

New Life

See how he clings to you, how he nestles in your arms, how soundly he sleeps. You are his warmth, his safe place, his everything. These are the details you’ll want to remember always.

With Child

Motherhood begins here, with new life stirring within. A tiny heartbeat, a playful kick, a soft hiccup; the first of many joys to come. Document the beauty of this miracle with an intimate maternity session.

They are your loved ones, your family, your home. Thoughtfully photograph each chapter of your story because years from now you’ll realize that those little things, those little moments; they weren’t so little after all. 

In Love

There may never be words beautiful enough to describe your love. So capture it in a private couples session, romantic moments to be forever cherished. Afterall, a photograph is worth a thousand words.

We always get so many compliments on the pictures she takes of us. She is great with children! She always made my girls feel comfortable and at ease, which shows through their expressions in the pictures. If you are looking for a children or family photographer, I highly recommend Paulina!

I can not rave enough about Paulina. Her pictures are magical! She has taken pictures of my family for the past two years and all the images we received were amazing. 

You're so easy to work with and I cannot wait to print these photos and display them in my home! You're so talented! Thank you again so much from the bottom
of our hearts.

Oh my goodness Paulina, I am in love! Thank you so much for capturing my little family. I absolutely love all of the photos.

The pictures came out so gorgeous; got so many compliments and I am very happy with her work. Thank you so much Paulina!

I had a wonderful experience with Paulina. She was very patient, very easy to work with, and I felt very comfortable.
