My most fond memories as a kid is of running barefoot alongside my cousins on my grandpa's orange farm in brazil. Days would last so long, like time stopped. From far and near our family would gather and enjoy nature, from the time the rooster sang in the morning till the flames of the bon fire died at night.
It's those memories of freedom, nature and family connection, that I hope to bring to my photography.
In 2004 I came to America and before long I met my husband. Ten years later our son was born.
Motherhood awakened in me a connection I never felt before. Through that realization I found my purpose - to capture honest, loving moments for other families. I want other moms and dads to have their unique story live on forever.

"Working with Poliana was nothing less than a dream! She chose the perfect location, walked us through everything in advance, and managed to keep us all completely comfortable throughout the shoot. I will never be able to thank her enough for capturing these sweet memories, and for making this mom feel beautiful." - Kaitlin, sparta - NJ

“The anticipation and excitement of waiting for and seeing the preview of your photos is so overwhelming! I totally feel for all my client anxiously awaiting their reveals!
I'm so glad I found Poliana and we chose her to capture these special memories of our tiny, silly family. She is so good at her craft, and so lovely to work with. I love my boys so much and these photos will be hung all over my house until we book our next session!”
