About Your Photographer

Hey, I'm Tristan!

I've been creating artful portraits for families in San Diego and beyond for over 10 years now! It's amazing to do a maternity session, see the sweet newborn back in my studio for a portrait session and then through the years for family photos. I get to see families grow and evolve through my lens! My clients will tell you I go above and beyond to not only deliver stunning images, but to make sessions fun and relaxed while providing top notch service.

I'm originally from Florida (don't hold that against me), and made San Diego my home back in 2010. My husband and I are raising quite the tribe. We have 6 (yes I said 6) kids at home from teenagers down to the baby. It's a fun & wild ride!

My Family

People always seem shocked when I tell them I have 6 kids. I have to say though that my husband and I rock it. It's a constant juggle of working full time, running a thriving small business, managing horseback riding, soccer, gymnastics, a high level dive team that requires commuting 6 days a week for 45 minutes each way, a baby, homeschooling and hopefully some time for just us.

I wont lie. It's A LOT. I wouldn't change it though. These are my people!

The Water

Maybe it's because I'm a Pieces, but I love the water and always have. I grew up swimming from an early age and spent countless hours in the pool and swimming at the warm Florida beaches. In college, I spent most of my time behind a wakeboard boat training for national and world competitions and running my wakeboard school.

Fast forward to today, and you will find me spending my free time at the beach with my family, surfing, or hanging by the pool. Even when I am working I usually end up at the beach with my clients. Not a bad office view if you ask me!
