She is awesome with the photo shoots and is very passionate about her work. Makes you feel very comfortable during the photo shoot.

Overall was not impressed, the studio was freezing and professionalism was subpar. I expected a lot more considering the amount of awards displayed in studio.

Paulette made me feel very comfortable and coached me through the poses for the boudoir session. I bought this to make a gift for my fiancé. I saw some of the photos during the session and I couldn't believe it was me! I can't wait to go back next week to take a look at the photos once they are edited and finalized.

Loved the photo shoot experience. Paulette was great and I had a lot of fun. Some issues with getting my actual book, but they were very courteous the entire time and everything worked out in the end!

Paulette is an excellent photographer. She takes a lot of time making sure the poses and background is just right. She also makes you feel very comfortable. I had a great time, would definitely do again and would recommend her highly to anyone. Love, Love, Love Paulette and her assistant, Karen.

From Our Editors

Though Master Photographer Paulette Mertes usually poses her subjects, she captures them at moments that reveal their personality, such as during a smile, a wink, or a barely concealed laugh. Her photographs of adults, families, children, and pets glow with vibrant colors under high-contrast or soft-focus lighting. Paulette photographs babies, families, pets, and boudoir sessions in the comfort of her private loft. With 12-foot ceilings and windows that beckon in a flood of natural light, the loft charms subjects with its historic architecture, brick walls, and hardwood floors, yet its recent renovations also allow Paulette to capture photos with a modern edge. Paulette also goes on-location to capture children, students, and newlyweds frolicking across a park or doing their taxes in front of a gushing waterfall. During each shoot she focuses on the small details in addition to the picture at large, a technique that's earned her accolades such as Connecticut Professional Photographers Association's Portrait Photographer of the Year from 2009-2014.
