A Breastfeeding Initiative – Vernon Public Health Unit

“Breastfeeding is always welcome here. A breastfeeding initiative.

Vernon Public Health Nursing in collaboration with Paulina O. Niechciał of Otylia Photography.”

I feel honoured to have my photos up at the Vernon Public Health Unit. Thanks to Jackie, one of the public health nurses for making this happen! What began as an invitation to join forces for the Breastfeeding Art Expo turned into this wonderful project! Real photos of breastfeeding and bottle-feeding moms around the clinic.

Hope you enjoy this little injection of beauty next time you take your kiddos in for a well baby visit, breastfeeding support or immunizations!

As always, thank you to the families in the photos

Sheri | Victoria, BC | April 2014

“I have been to the local department stores for portraits, what I really ended up with was two fidgety children, tears, and endless fighting. These experiences practically left me in tears and saying I will never do this again. When I was approached to have to have a professional photo shoot done with my two children I immediately cringed. I met up with Paulina at a local farm and the kids immediately loved her. They warmed up to her and she let them be themselves. There was no set up, sit here or there, or do this. They were able to be kids and she was able to capture that. I was left speechless, and with no tears!

The pictures were amazing and she captured the essence of my children being children. Paulina is a genuine person who has the ability to see people for who they are and be able to capture it on film. I was extremely impressed and can’t wait for the next shoot.”

“Paulina did absolutely gorgeous photos for our family. She captured many of the cute expressions our little girl makes. The photos were emailed to us within days and she did a beautiful job editing them. Paulina is talented, professional and a delight to work with. I would highly recommend her!”
