Welcome to the Michaila Paulina blog, a journal about my life, travels, and style. Stay a while and say hello!



For the second year in a row, I held my Lavender Field Sessions at Purple Hill Lavender Farm in Creemore, ON! I definitely think I’m going to make this an annual offering because I always have so much fun photographing new and old clients and their sweet families/doggos!

Last year, these sessions were a one-day only event. I had SO many inquiries last year that I had to actually turn away a few potential clients after I booked up. This year, I decided to offer TWO days and I’m so glad I did! Click here to view last year’s Lavender Field Sessions.

Purple Hill Lavender Farm has the most gorgeous property (and house) and the views from their lavender fields are spectacular! The little town nearby, Creemore, is mostly known for their brewery and quaint little shops and restaurants – it’s definitely worth the visit if you are in town for the lavender fields!

Enjoy my favourites below from my two-day Lavender Field Sessions event. If you’re interested in attending 2022’s sessions, keep an eye out early 2022 for registration because my spots go quick!

Thank you Purple Hill Lavender Farm for hosting me and my clients again this year!

I’m going to be a bit biased here as this sweet little guy is my nephew! I just love when family supports what I do.

This family was so excited to have photos with their new baby!

This sweet little girl’s Momma is also a photographer. So, naturally, she would be amazing and cooperative in front of the camera!

You may recognize this gorgeous woman as my bride from April’s elopement along Lake Simcoe! You can view her elopement here.

I absolutely love what this family wore to their Lavender session. It’s true that what you wear makes a difference in your photos and I educate my clients about this when I send them my Style Guide upon booking.

This little guy absolutely loved the lavender plants and kept crawling towards them every chance he got!

This couple are newly engaged and they’re getting married this August! This session was gifted by the bride’s cousin. It’s such an exciting time for them and I can’t believe how quickly they’ve planned their wedding.

This little girl’s Momma and I have known each other for a couple of years now. They just moved to Collingwood and are enjoying their new town and going on all sorts of adventures!

This family attended last year’s Lavender Field Sessions, and their son was still in Momma’s belly then! They came back this year for some family photos.

Perhaps the youngest client of mine to date. This little darling was only 10 days old on this day and she was so precious! Her Momma and Daddy are doing SO GOOD as first time parents!

There was definitely no shortage of babies this year at my Lavender Field Sessions!

This glowing Momma wanted photos with her teenage children and it was so fun capturing them all!

One of my favourite things is when clients bring their fur-babies along!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll recognize this couple. They were one of my first wedding bookings, I’ve taken extended family photos for them, they came out to my Lavender Field Sessions last year to announc their pregnancy, I took their maternity photos this past winter, and now I took their first professional family photos!
