a little about me

I’m Paula Orologas and live in beautiful Orange County, CA. I am a mom to two wonderful kids (you’ll see a lot of them on this site). By day, I’m a business professional, working with a wonderful group of people who stimulate and challenge my mind. By night and on the weekends, my family and my photography nurture my soul.

My photography journey began with the birth of my first child who is now 7. I am privileged that I shoot mainly to document my children’s childhood and to preserve our family’s memories. But I’m also lucky enough to capture some cherished moments for friends and family.

Most of my work is natural light lifestyle photography but I also have a studio in our home for portrait work.

I have a sister website for moms (and dads) wanting to learn more about photography. Visit it for free downloads, tutorials, and inspiration. PhotoSchoolforMoms.com
