Hi, I am Paige Mikkoulainen.
Born and raised in Quebec Canada for 24 years. Moved to Saskatchewan in April of 2013 to the small town of Nipawin, where I am currently based. I started my photography business in September 2013.
I have always had a passion for photography. My family would constantly find me out in the wood photographing nature when I was young. I went to CEGEP (college) in 2007 and took a small class in photography. There I learned my basics, but never really made a profession out of it. 6 years later, I gave birth to the most beautiful little baby girl. I went to the talented Photographer Carolina Hanna Photo to do her newborn photos. I must admit, my daughter made her work for those photos. Once she delivered the finished product, I broke down into tears of joy. I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I wanted to pass on that exact feeling she gave me, to all moms out there. So that’s when my journey began as a photographer.
I specialize in posed Newborn photography, but I do anything from bumps to families and everything in between. My studio is in my home, in the basement.. I have created a cozy place for parents to sit back and relax while I start creating beautiful art with their babies. I have hundreds of props, wraps, blankets, bling, and more to make each session stunning and unique.
When choosing a newborn photographer it is extremely important that look for someone with patients, passion, knowledge, and tons of experience. Safety is the priority. I have the proper education to be sure that your baby is safely and comfortably posed to get those beautiful images. Over the years, I have photographed over hundreds of newborns and counting. I am friendly, and fun and listen to what my client’s needs/wants are prior to the session. I love what I do, but most of all I love the feeling I give to the parents when they receive their final product.
“If you are looking for a fun, energetic, down to earth, up for almost anything photographer...Paige is it!!! So very professional yet willing to go beyond to get the perfect shot. We do more off the wall family photoshoots and she never disappoints with our visions.
