Looking for a Carlsbad photographer? Look no further! 

I've been capturing timeless memories for families in Carlsbad 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 am so glad you're here and I'd love to learn more about you! If you are looking for beautiful photos to
treasure for years to come, drop me a message and let's connect. I can't wait to meet you!

Best Photography Locations in Carlsbad

Ponto State Beach

South Ponto Beach is another stunning beach location for photography in Carlsbad. With its dramatic cliffs and scenic views, this beach offers a unique backdrop for creating gorgeous photos. The rocky shoreline, coupled with the crashing waves, provides a dynamic environment for capturing dramatic beach photos. After your session, pop over to the Alila hotel and grab a bite to eat as you watch the sunset!

Bataquitos Lagoon

Batiquitos Lagoon is a great location for families looking for a photography location other than the beach. There are plenty of lovely trails and backdrops to choose from. Most of the trails are located right off I-5 and close to locations such as Legoland, the Carlsbad Premium Outlets and downtown Carlsbad. 

Tristan Quigley Photography Studio

If you are a maternity, newborn or family client looking for a gorgeous photography studio, you've come to the right place. Our studio has a gorgeous, all-white esthetic for a super clean, timeless, high-end look. You will feel right at home the moment you walk in. We offer a beautifully curated client closet, lifestyle photography area and a selection of stunning products.

Pregnancy is like a new beginning of all things - hope, wonder, and a dream of endless possibilities. As a mom myself I remember the always evolving emotions of pregnancy so vividly. The ups, the downs and everything in between. It is such a beautiful process and I love working with expecting mothers. 
All of my Carlsbad maternity photography sessions include access to my beautifully curated client closet, referrals to the best hair & makeup artist and a stress-free, high end photography experience. 
After over 10 years as a Carlsbad maternity photographer I've gotten to "know them" before they enter the world and still get to photograph them as teenagers now!

Carlsbad MATERNITY Photographer

There is nothing like meeting your child for the first time. I can't even begin to describe the feeling of holding them in your arms. The sweet newborn smell. Their soft skin, tiny fingers and delicate little toes. It's amazing how quickly they change, almost before your eyes. Newborns always have a special place in my heart. I love providing the sweet families who hire me with timeless images of their precious baby. My favorite thing about being a Carlsbad newborn photographer is stopping time with one click, so they stay that small forever. 
My photography studio is located right off of I-5 in Carlsbad & is fully stocked with gorgeous newborn items and a full client wardrobe. Grab a Starbucks coffee next door & relax while I capture timeless images of your precious little one!

Carlsbad NEWBORN Photographer

Family. It's such a small, yet powerful word. It means so many things to each individual person. Each family is unique and that is one of my favorite things about being a family photographer. I love observing the little moments that often go unnoticed. The huge smile when a father gives his son a big bear hug or
the soft, comfort when a mother nuzzles her nose into her baby's neck. I love freezing these moments in time. Before you know it, those little ones will be too big to toss in the air and the snuggles will be few and far between.
With 6 kids of my own and years of experience with children of all ages, I can help make your session fun and as stress free as possible. As your Carlsbad family photographer I promise the process will be simple. Just show up at your session ready to laugh and let me handle the rest! Let's have some fun!
