My name is Pauline Mattia. I’m originally from France, mum of 2 and have been living in beautiful Barcelona for 8 years.
As far as I can remember, I have never liked staged photos and flashlights. I never went to a studio to have my portrait taken and always thought the best portraits were the ones taken unexpectedly. When I started travelling as a student, my smartphone snapshots and selfies were not good enough to include in photo albums, so I would grab my digital camera everyday, and sometimes pass it on to have a chance to appear in the photos. When I became a mum and discovered the power of quality photos and films to capture my family’s memories, I realized I had to make my art accessible to people around me.
Being a photographer myself, what always gave me most joy in the past was photographing nature, landscapes, people and children. I am fascinated by life on earth and people… I mean how lucky are we to get to live, grow and give? I enjoy capturing the natural beauty in everyone and everything. And I think beauty does not only lie in peaceful and happy moments but also in pain and movement. It’s about the way we dance to life. I think the best portraits and reportages are the ones that reflect our true story, when we can simply be and accept who we are, and celebrate what we love and what we are becoming. I created my brand to capture the beauty of life for everyone to be able to relive and share their memories endlessly, with natural looking yet professional photos and films.
Capturing the natural beauty of life
I’ll never impose nor capture any fake smile or pose, never create an artificial environment or use a flash to make the perfect picture. Instead I’ll get to know you and make you feel great about yourself and get comfortable with me, so you can open up, move and act naturally. I’ll meet you in your favorite environment and help you focus on what matters to you so I can capture your true, happy self and your love for one another or for your activity - be it at your place, at work or outside - only using natural light!
