Family Beach Photography Session

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have some fun plans for this upcoming weekend. I have been busy this week booking the Holiday Mini Sessions I posted recently and photographing some adorable San Diego families. Speaking of adorable, I had a great time shooting a family beach photography session here in San Diego, CA. The weather was windy, but still great. We also got to see one of the many beautiful sunsets we get almost nightly here. Throw in a few cute kids & it’s a fun night!San Diego Famiy Beach Photography - San Diego, CA- Tristan QuigleySan Diego Famiy Beach Photography - San Diego, CA- Tristan QuigleyDoesn’t she have the most precious smile. There were definitely a lot of giggles going around. I was sorting through the photos to edit and found a whole section with little miss sticking her little tongue out. Silly girl! Kids definitely keep the job interesting. I love it!

Surprise Engagement Photography | San Diego, CA

Surprise Engagement Photography Session

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a recent surprise engagement photography session I recently shot in San Diego, CA. After I got the call from the groom-to-be a few weeks prior, I couldn’t wait to capture this special moment in their lives. We had planned the session on their anniversary at the same spot in La Jolla where they went on their first date. She thought we were just doing a couples photoshoot, but little did she know when I said “kiss her forehead”, she would be watching him get down on one knee. He definitely came prepared with some tissues. Good call Travis!

I will definitely admit I teared up myself. I’m super excited for this happy couple! Let the wedding planning begin!

On another note, I will be releasing my fall mini session dates soon. Stay tuned to get your spot before they sell out! I will also make an announcement on my facebook page found here:

Newborn Photography Session

I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! The weather here in Encinitas, CA was amazing as usual. You could feel a little bit of fall in the air, but it was still warm enough to head to the beach and pool. Part of my weekend was spent working on one of my recent newborn photography sessions I shot last week. This little man is #3 in the lineup for his lucky parents. Even though he wanted to stay wide awake for most of our photography session, I was able to get him to sleep a few times and get these sleepy little shots.

Encinitas Newborn Photography - Encinitas, CA- Tristan Quigley PhotographyEncinitas Newborn Photography - Encinitas, CA- Tristan Quigley Photography

Some of the tricks I use for my newborn clients are portable space heaters, swaddles, white noise machines, lots of rocking, plenty of feeding time, and a few other tricks I have up my sleeve. Sometimes a baby will just not want to sleep and that’s ok! I take my time and eventually they will drift off. I’ve gotten very accustomed to going with the flow and listening to the baby’s cues. I really love what I do! Who wouldn’t want to snuggle a tiny baby for 2-3 hours? Best job ever!

Newborn Photography Session

Happy Monday everyone! For those of you that need a little something to make your Monday morning brighter, check out the handsome little man from my recent newborn photography session. I did his session just north of La Jolla, CA. His wonderful parents have been here for about a year and are loving being right near the coast in this beautiful city. I had a great time getting to photograph this little guy. He was a natural!

Isn’t he the sweetest? He was definitely a hungry little guy. Once mom filled him up, I put him near the heater I always have on hand for newborn photography sessions. I always make sure to have a heater, white noise, and a few tricks up my sleeve when I need to soothe a little one. He quickly settled in and was a fantastic little model for me!

Senior Photography Session | San Diego, CA

Senior Photography Session

I wanted to share something a little different than my usual newborn or family session. I recently had the pleasure of shooting a senior photography session here in San Diego. This super cool young man is graduating next spring and his mom asked if I would take some photographs to document this special time in his life. We all had a fun time hitting the beach along with a little time in a more urban setting for his senior photos.

Isn’t he handsome? He was super sweet as well. I’m sure he has quite the following at school. Being in front of the camera at any age, especially in your teens, doesn’t usually come easy. He was a natural though. We kept it light and fun. He was such a good sport. I usually suggest bringing anything that might be important or say something about you for a senior photography session. He chose a soccer ball and his favorite jersey. He is an avid beach soccer player and plays for his high school team as well. I know this guy will go far in life and will make his family very proud. Here’s to a great senior year!

I hope you all are off to a great start this week! I have a handsome little man to share with you. I had a great time doing his newborn photography session last week. This little guy and his family just relocated to San Diego so his dad could continue his professional football career with the San Diego Chargers. I’m sure the weather here will be a nice change. It definitely was beautiful out on the day of his photography session. When it was time to start, he was sleepy and ready to go! I got right down to business and was able to get some great shots. He was a superstar for me!

Isn’t that a beautiful family? Moving states away is not an easy task, but to do it with a 2 year old, a new baby, and still look as beautiful as his mom did? Wow! His big sister was pretty excited as well. She was cracking me up during the photography session singing and dancing. She had the best little personality! Dad was awesome too. I sometimes have to coax dad’s to get into some of the photos, but he was all about it! Why wouldn’t you be when you have two little cuties to snuggle with? I’m sure they will be super excited to be cheering him on from the sidelines when he is out there on the field for the San Diego Chargers!

Newborn Photography Session

Happy Wednesday everyone! The weather has been beautiful here in Encinitas, CA. I hope you have gotten to spend the past few days enjoying it. I was lucky enough to get in a little beach time and also do a newborn photography session here in Encinitas for the cutest little guy! He had the greatest head of hair and was such a champ for our session. This little man is the youngest of 4 kids and the first boy for the family. He has many years of having his three sisters dress him up ahead of him.

Isn’t he the cutest? He was so awesome during our session. He was wide awake for about the first hour. I usually do newborns photography sessions in the first 5-10 days of life. Older babies don’t tolerate posing as much, newborn acne and peeling sets in, and they just grow so quickly. You really want to capture them in those first few weeks! He was a little over two weeks for our session, but we decided to give it a shot. Once I got him settled, he passed right out and I was able to get some great shots. He did amazing! Anytime he started to stir, I would just rub his cute little forehead and back to sleep he went.

Newborn Photography Session | San Diego, CA

Newborn Photography Session

Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a busy week, but a good one. Looking forward to a long weekend! Earlier this week I had the pleasure of doing a newborn photography session for a very special San Diego family. I met Dr. Chiang back in 2012 when my oldest daughter was hospitalized with a pretty severe kidney infection, grade 5 reflux, and a few other issues that needed to be treated. We were very lucky to be placed under his care. He is a wonderful urologist at Rady Children’s Hospital here in San Diego. I was thrilled to learn that his beautiful wife was expecting their first child. I couldn’t wait to get my camera on this beauty.

This little peanut was such a sweetie. She decided she wanted to stay awake for the first part of her newborn photography session, but once she had an extra little helping of milk, she was ready to doze off. Her cheeks and little pouty lips were to die for. I’m so thrilled for Dr. Chiang and his wife. They will be wonderful parents!

Family Photography Sessions | San Diego, CA

Family Photography Sessions

This blog post is long overdue! I was so busy this past fall season and my blogging of all of the beautiful family photography sessions I got to shoot around San Diego was pretty much non-existent. If I wasn’t shooting, I was editing and trying to manage the busy schedules of three little girls. Now that things have calmed down a little, I wanted to start sharing some of the gorgeous families I had the pleasure of working with. Here are just a few for now:

San Diego Family Photography - San Diego, CA- Tristan Quigley Photography

Aren’t they all stunning? I was able to shoot at a variety of locations this past fall. Everything from the beaches in Encinitas, the forest in Rancho Sante Fe, and a cute little park in Solana Beach just to name a few. The best part of it all was getting to see all of the great holiday cards my clients sent to their friends and families with images from their family photography session!

I have plenty more to share so stay tuned!

I was super excited to get a message recently asking me to do a newborn photography session for not one, but TWO baby boys for a previous client of mine. I did their daughter’s newborn photography session about two years ago here in San Diego, CA and I was thrilled to learn they just added two new brothers to their beautiful family. Mom and Dad sure are busy now, but they seem to be handling it like long time pros. How cute are these little guys?

San Diego Newborn Photography - San Diego, CA- Tristan Quigley Photography

It was definitely a lot trickier working with multiples, but the session actually flowed nicely. While one was getting fed and settled, I was able to work with the other baby to get some solo shots. The boys were pretty awake for a good chunk of the session. They were already 6 weeks old which is 4-5 weeks older than most newborns I shoot. The boy’s actual due date still hasn’t arrived believe it or not. They were born at 32 weeks. Those first few weeks were spent in the NICU and now they are growing like little weeds! I’m so glad I was able to capture these little cuties.

Enjoy the sneak peek!

I was planning on posting this adorable family’s sneak peek tomorrow, but I couldn’t wait to share. I’ve been doing their family photography sessions for a few years now. I even got to do the maternity session and newborn photography for little miss sassy pants  you see below. She just turned 2 & is a little spitfire. I love her to pieces and her big brother is just as amazing. It must be hereditary because their parents are some of the most kind and funny people I know!

Newborn Photography Session

I haven’t been blogging as much as I should lately since I am right in the middle of my busy season. I promise to get back to posting some recent sessions soon. I just had to make a quick post about a special little guy I got to photograph this week. I had done his sister’s newborn photography session a few years ago. I was excited to learn she was going to be a big sister and I got to do her brother’s newborn photography session as well. We shot the session a little north of La Jolla, CA and he was a trooper for the whole thing!

Isn’t he a cutie? He gave me a handful of cute smiles and even seems to have his dad’s signature smirk. His sister was such a big girl posing for his newborn photographs as well. Such a beautiful family!

I just wanted to share a few photos from a recent family beach photography session I did here in San Diego, CA. I was introduced to this family by a good friend of mine and I’m so glad I’ve started to get to know them a little. They are such a great family! Missy was gifted this session for Mother’s Day and we finally made it out to the beautiful beaches of San Diego for their family photography session. Their kids were so much fun to photograph!

The kids had a blast running in and out of the ocean. At the end of the night a few fisherman caught a couple sting rays and a baby leopard shark. Without even missing a beat, their daughter ran over begging to hold the shark. Fearless! It was a fun night!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. It went by too quickly here! I wanted to share a few photos from one of my recent Rancho Santa Fe newborn photography sessions I shot recently. This little guy completed a very special family recently. His older brother and two sisters are beyond excited he is finally here. I’ll bet his mom and dad are just as thrilled. How can you not be once you see his adorable little face?

I hope you all enjoyed the nice long weekend. We had another warm weekend here in San Diego, CA. My girls and I spent a lot of time enjoying the beach and pool. I also got to work on editing a recent newborn photography session I did in my San Diego studio last week. This cutie was such a dream baby to photograph. Once she got a full tummy, she slept for most of the photography session! She even managed to give me some super cute smiles.

Isn’t she adorable? Her little lips were so perfect and and she had the cutest cheeks. Her proud big sister got to tag along for the photography session as well. Their parents definitely have two beauties!

Family Photography Session | San Elijo Hills, CA

Family Photography Session

I have another couple of beautiful girls to share with you today! I had a great time shooting this family photography session over in San Elijo Hills recently. If you live in the area, you have probably heard of or are a patient at the amazing dental practice their father heads up, The Hills Family Dentistry. Dr. Martin, his wife, and staff are wonderful to work with. I couldn’t wait to get my camera on these two beauties!

The girls and I had a lot of fun goofing around in the field we were shooting their photography session at. It can sometimes be challenging to work with kids pretty far apart in age. What might work for getting a younger child to smile, will only get you scowls from the much “cooler” older sibilings. Luckily, most things I did were funny to both of these girls, so my job was pretty easy!

Family Photography Session | Encinitas, CA

Family Photography Session

I have another super special family to share on my blog today. I met Stephanie and her oldest daughter when they were enrolled in the same 3 year old preschool class as my oldest, Riley, just after we moved here. Stephanie is probably one of the sweetest people you will ever meet and her family follows suit. I have done their family photography sessions just outside of Encinitas, CA for years now. I even had the pleasure of doing a newborn photography session for her youngest! Look how adorable these girls are….

I was very disappointed to learn just this past week that they will be relocating to Texas less than a week from now. Needless to say, we decided to shoot a quick family photo session in Encinitas before they start their new adventure. I will miss their family dearly, but look forward to the fun visits next summer.

I love her little sandy toes too!
