I'm Mariola. I am a mum of 3 boys, a wife, geology student and of course a photographer.
Photography has been a passion of mine ever since my dad showed me his film camera, the famous Zenit. Of course he didn't trust me with it, but instead he gave me a different film camera which I treasured with my whole heart. Ever since then I have tried to capture and document the everyday life of my growing family. It has been a passion of mine for many years, some say that the world I show is incredibly emotional, pure and beautiful. And I say, that I capture what I see.
My professional journey with photography started in 2012 after the birth of my second son, since then I have photographed over 600 families and newborn babies. I am passionate about what I do, and the work I produce has a touch of "film" photography which I truly love.
My true inspiration are my three boys, and yes I do follow them with the camera. I am determined to capture their everyday lives, the way they play, the way they run and laugh, so one day they can look back at our photo albums and feel like they are looking through a time machine. The walls in our home are filled with frames and pure, natural images. Every time I walk down the stairs and see these memories, I feel my heart sing and a smile appearing on my face. This is exactly what I want my clients to feel when they look back at the images I took for them.
I am based in Elgin, Moray but I cover Invernes-shire, Nairn, Moray, Banffshire, Aberdeenshire and surrounding areas. If there is a location you have in mind which requires travelling further please get in touch, we will find a way of getting there.
