For families big & small looking for gorgeous, timeless portraits and heirlooms as well as an experienced photographer with years of experience, this is the place for you.
I've been capturing timeless memories for families in La Jolla and the surrounding areas for over 13 years now! It's so fun 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 love working with extended families as well!
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!
Torrey Pines State Beach is another gorgeous beach location for photography in La Jolla. With its dramatic cliffs, beautiful ocean & views, this beach offers a unique backdrop for creating stunning photos. The rocky shoreline & cliffs in the distance provides a dynamic environment for capturing dramatic beach photos. After your session, pop over to downtown La Jolla for some fun shopping!
Torrey Pines Natural Reserve is a great location for families looking for a photography location other than the beach, but still wanting gorgeous ocean & sunset views. There are plenty of lovely trails and backdrops to choose from. Located up the hill from Torrey Pines State Beach, most spots are a short 5-10 minute easy walk from the parking lot.
Another option for families who don't want beach photos is Marian Bear Park. Marian Bear is known for its natural beauty and is a popular destination for hikers, bikers, and nature lovers in the San Diego area. Spring & Fall are especially beautiful if the plants are blooming or if you are looking for the large Fall leaves for your family photos.
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 La Jolla 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.
Whether we do your La Jolla maternity photography session at Torrey Pines or one of the gorgeous trails, it will be a session to remember!

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. My favorite thing about being a La Jolla newborn photographer is stopping time with one click, so they stay that small forever.
My photography studio is located right off of I-5, just a short drive from La Jolla & 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!

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! I love working with extended families as well. Let's have some fun!!
