Looking for an Encinitas photographer? You are in the right place!

I've been capturing timeless memories for families in Encinitas and the surrounding areas like Solana Beach and Cardiff for over 10 years now! It's so fun to photograph a maternity session, see their adorable newborn back in my studio for a portrait session and then through the years for family photos and senior sessions. 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. Relax & let me handle the rest!
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 work with you!

Best Photography Locations in Encinitas

Moonlight State Beach

Moonlight Beach and the surrounding beaches are an ideal location for capturing stunning photos. The Encinitas beaches like Moonlight, Swamis & Cardiff offer a perfect backdrop for beach photoshoots. Expectant mothers
can showcase their baby bumps while enjoying the water, families can have fun playing in the
sand and waves or we can capture one of my signature portraits of a newborn on a surfboard. With its natural beauty and relaxing atmosphere, Moonlight Beach is a perfect location for capturing those cherished family memories.

San Elijo Lagoon

San Elijo Lagoon is a great location for families looking for a photography location other than the beach. The lagoon is located in the Encinitas area & has plenty of unique settings features like stunning coastal scenery, hills, meadows, and beautiful vistas of the Pacific Ocean. The trails are easily accessible & after your session you can dine at local favorites like Las Olas or Pacific Coast Grill.

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 Encinitas 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 spending over a decade now as an Encinitas maternity photographer, I'm still photographing those same families that now have kids 10 years+! It's the best!!

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 an Encinitas newborn photographer is stopping time with one click, so they stay that small forever. 
My beautiful photography studio is located conveniently off I-5, on the border of Encinitas 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!

Encinitas 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. Trust me, I know all too well. 
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 Encinitas family photographer I promise the process will be simple. Just show up at your session ready to laugh and let me handle the rest! Just relax & let's have some fun!
