Family Photo Session on Coronado Beach | San Diego

First, Let’s get all the cliche photographer – speak out of the way: yes, this family was super sweet, there was such genuine love between them, can’t wait to work with them again, and on, and on. 😬 BUT… that’s not the point. The point is, their session is a beautiful example of a lifestyle […]

If you and the kids are going to be visiting our wonderful city from far away this summer (or you’re just a local looking for a great recommendation), you may be wondering which beach to hit.

It’s a not-uncommon issue between couples, one that experienced photographers run into quite bit. So, first of all, know you’re not alone! But documenting your family in a meaningful and lasting way is […]

Coronado Beach is the Best Beach for Family Photos

As a long-time San Diegan, a mom, and a San Diego family photographer, I’ve had my fair share of all the great stuff there is to do around here.

As a San Diego maternity, newborn, and family photographer, I”m smack dab in the middle of a large military community. I’ve had the honor and pleasure of photographing many military families; a few of my favorite images of them are highlighted above.

One of the things I love about photographing graduating seniors is finding out what their unique interests are, and then thinking of creative ways to incorporate those interests into their photos in a natural way that feels authentic to them. Add in the concept of lifestyle photography, and the result is rich, meaningful images that […]

“That was fun. When can I see you again?” -Isaac, 5, after a session. That’s right. I want your kids to act up during the session. And I want you to not worry about it. As a family photographer in San Diego, I’ve photographed kids for years. And given my pick, I’ll take kids being […]

I want to start off by saying that this is in no way a criticism of photographers who do do mini sessions. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. If you are a photographer who can turn out beautiful, connected images within 10 to 15 minutes of meeting a new family, you are a wizard and my […]
