Dear Mama, you are the photographer of your beautiful family, freezing in time all the mischief and cuteness of your children. Keep those photos safe, they will be priceless before you know.
What about you? I feel very passionate about mamas being present in the family photographs as well as their own portraits. Too many of us hide from the camera believing that we are not photogenic because we often don’t own many photos we are happy with.
I have two photos with my mum from my childhood. TWO. My mum believed she wasn’t photogenic so became the master in hiding from camera. This makes me really sad and I don’t want this for you or you children.
I wasn’t born with a camera in hand like most photographers declare. My Grandfather isn’t a photographer either, he is an awesome beekeeper. I didn’t study photography, I did biology instead. My decision to become a photographer came from craving creativity and working with people rather then test tubes. I also have a huge love and respect for the family as a unit.
I was born in a small town in Poland. Now I live with my husband and two small children in a small house in a small town (Dalgety Bay, Fife, Scotland to be specific). After 10 years of marriage and two kids I still like him most of the time. I love simple things which you can see in the products I offer. I am a minimalist in heart and decluttering is my idea of fun afternoon. Moving furniture is another one.
In Dear Mama I photograph pregnant mamas, mamas with newborn babies, fur babies mamas and families at different stages of life. I focus on connection between mamas and people they love and I create emotive and beautiful photos.
My other business is called The Brand Photographer, because this is pretty much what I do; create photographs for brands ( mainly small and creative ones).
