Welcome to my site! I'm so excited you found me in your search for a San Diego family photographer. As a mom to 6 awesome kids that range from a baby up to teenagers and over 10 years in business, I bring loads of experience to the table as a photographer and as a busy mom. I can also tell you these crazy days go by in the blink of an eye. It might not seem like it at the time, but I swear my oldest was just learning how to walk and now she is on the brink of driving soon. All you can do is hold on for the ride and do whatever you can to capture these moments before they are gone. That's where I come in. After working with me you will walk away with timeless images to cherish and a new friend. I can't wait to meet you!

I'm Tristan!

Hi there!

Tristan made my family feel so comfortable and reminded us to have fun during our shoot. My 9 year old twins had such a good time and in turn were able to really relax and provide for good photos.
Tristan knew exactly what she wanted to capture for our family and while she always listened to what I wanted to capture, her own insight, direction and experience were key in giving us the most amazing photos. I’ve had Tristan work with our family for 3 photo shoots now and each one of them is so unique! I’m always blown away and can’t wait for the next excuse to take family portraits. She also worked with my 2 week old baby and was the most gentle with her. Her creativity truly shines with newborn pictures and my baby didn’t cry or wake up once!

Tristan Quigley has photographed our family for the past seven years beautifully! Each year we have worked together has offered us such a unique perspective to watch our boys grow from babies to young boys. Tristan has a gift to be able to capture the boy's individual personalities in her photography. Our family looks forward to our annual photo shoots. From the field, to the stream, city streets, and So Cal beaches, we have so many stunning photos that tell our family’s story. Tristan is an amazing talent, we are so blessed to have her in our life!

We recently had the amazing experience of working with Tristan to capture our newest family member with some fantastic newborn photos! She is patient, caring and knew how to make my husband and I look WAY less tired than we were with a 5 day old! We've already received many compliments on our new family photos and I was in love with her work. Strongly recommend Tristan - you won't regret it!
