Newborn Photography Session | La Jolla, CA

Newborn Photography Session

I hope all you mamas out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I got spoiled by my crew with a solo run, a little shopping, relaxing, & a nice dinner out. Can’t complain! Late last week I had the pleasure of photographing an adorable little man who made a new lucky lady a mom for the first time! This little guy was such a champ for his newborn photography session down in La Jolla, CA. He only made a few little peeps the entire time. What a rockstar!

Happy Monday everyone! I have a quick share from a recent newborn photography session I did last week in Encinitas, CA. This little cutie was so much fun to work with. Once she got settled, she rocked her session! She gave me the cutest smiles and was such a joy to photograph. Isn’t she a doll?

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend. I just got back from a wonderful trip to Antigua late last night & getting right back to the grind of packing lunches, shuttling kids around, and the normal day to day stuff is a little tough. One extra bright spot in my morning is sharing a quick sneak peek of this gorgeous mama-to-be. We had a great time shooting her maternity photography session at the beach here in San Diego. She was glowing!

Children’s Photography Session | San Diego, CA

Children’s Photography Session

I just wanted to share a very special children’s photography session I did recently for my own little girl. Meet Riley. She turned 10 today & I’m lucky enough to call her mine and I wanted to dedicate this post to her.

This is 10. Happy birthday to my sweet, beautiful Riley. You came into this world 10 years ago today & made me a mom. You have filled our lives with laughs, love, strength, and you are a constant, wonderful reminder of your daddy. You are kind, thoughtful, smart, athletic, inquisitive, and just all around amazing. You became my very important mommy’s helper 3 years ago when you shouldn’t have had to take on that role. You never complain and know just what needs to be done whether it’s helping Harper or grabbing something for Zoe when she can’t reach. I am forever grateful for being blessed with such an amazing little girl. I can’t wait to watch you grow into a beautiful, young lady. I know your daddy is looking down on you and he’s beaming with pride just like we all are. You light up our lives & you are so very loved. Happy birthday sweet girl!

Newborn Photography Session | Del Mar, CA

Newborn Photography Session

Hi everyone! We finally have our sunshine back here in San Diego. I felt like I was living back in Florida lately with all the rain we have had. Luckily, we had a beautiful day last week when I did a newborn photography session for this cute little guy in Del Mar, CA. We even lucked out with a great sunset and were able to snag a few photos at the beach. He was quite the spectacle out there on the coast. People started gathering around once they realized there was an adorable baby in the wood crate. He took it all in stride and slept peacefully while I worked. How could you not being surrounded by ocean waves & warm sun?

Isn’t his big sister just as stunning? She was so proud of her new little brother and was such a big helper while I was setting up. She had a great time sliding down the sand dunes while we shot on the beach that night too. I’m sure they will spend countless hours together playing in the sand when he gets older!

Family Photography Sessions | San Diego, CA

Family Photography Sessions

It’s pouring here in San Diego. What better time to sit here with a coffee and finally blog some of the beautiful families I had the pleasure of photographing this past fall during my holiday mini sessions. This post is long overdue, but better late than never right? I still have plenty of gorgeous family photography sessions to add, so there’s definitely more to come! I swear I have the best clients in all of San Diego. I’ve been doing family photography sessions for some of them since I moved here 7 years ago! I’ve done maternity and newborn sessions for some and now those kids are almost 7 years old. It’s so exciting seeing everyone year after year and capturing the little ones growing up. It’s one of the best parts of the job.

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

All those families are stunning right?!? While the fall mini session season was crazy busy and I barely saw my own family, I had a blast photographing each and every one. Over the next few weeks I will share some more from this past fall. I need to get back to blogging after this long break!

Newborn Photography Session

Happy Friday! I know it’s been a stressful week for everyone, so here is a quick share from a recent newborn photography session I shot just north of  San Diego. His big sister was beyond excited about her new little brother. She was so eager to hold him and help mom and dad. She was a total doll. He was just as cute. Look at this face. How could you not smile?

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.

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!

San Diego Surprise Engagement Photography - San Diego, CA- Tristan Quigley Photography

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 | Encinitas, CA

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 | La Jolla, CA

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.

Encinitas Newborn Photography - Encinitas, CA- Tristan Quigley Photography

Encinitas Newborn Photography - Encinitas, CA- Tristan Quigley Photography

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!

Newborn Photography Session | San Diego, CA

Newborn Photography Session

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!

Family Photography Session

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!
