Paula Ward’s unique lifestyle portraits offer something that is quite different from the world of traditional portrait photography; A true documentation of your life together as a family. Whether your family is celebrating a major life event or just having a regular day, Paula will capture the moments in your life in a manner that will truly tell your story in pictures.


All of Paula’s sessions begin with a pre-shoot consultation in your home or other location of your choice. This allows for the sharing of ideas to develop the best and most ideal style for each client. From clothing, to locations, to number of actual shooting hours or days, all details can be worked out during this very important meeting.


Paula generally works quietly with a sense of calm and in such a way as to help each member of the family look their best while at the same time not forcing the poses or other aspects of the days to become more important than recording what is taking place. From laughing, crying, expressions of wonder, all things are possible and will be taken into consideration during your session(s). 


In most cases, a minimum of 60 – 90 minutes of actual shooting time can be expected, although time on-location may be longer. Children, pets, and some families simply take more time and there should be no need to rush.
