The beginning of something beautiful


Your Solana Beach Maternity Photographer

A selection of the beautiful Expecting mothers I've photographed


Solana Beach Maternity Session

Solana Beach, California

When I was an expecting mama I remember feeling like the day that the day I get to meet my sweet baby couldn't  get here soon enough, and then before I knew it, the whole pregnancy experience was over. It made it all that more important to document all of the special details. The pregnancy glow, those fluttering kicks, the excitement, and the way you caress your beautiful belly. A maternity session is the perfect way to capture the beauty and wonder of this unique time.

Maternity portraits are typically done around 30-34 weeks, when your belly is beautifully round and you’re still feeling pretty comfortable. Depending on your circumstances, that guideline is very flexible. Timing can be different for everyone. 

I know shopping can be a little stressful. I offer a variety of wardrobe options in my client closet, but I can also assist you in finding the perfect outfit for your session.. If hair & makeup is desired, I have some wonderful vendors to recommend as well. 

Enjoy these last few weeks of this amazingly special time. Your body is carrying another human being! Let's celebrate you mama! I want you to look back at these photos and just feel nothing less than stunning. You deserve nothing less!

The Experience

your beauty will shine

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!

I am SO glad I found Tristan for my maternity and newborn photos! She is an absolutely brilliant photographer. It is sometimes hard to feel beautiful when you're 8 months pregnant, but she made me feel amazing and I couldn't be happier with the photos! When we did our newborn photos, the studio was so peaceful, warm and relaxing. Tristan is a swaddling-genius and snapped the most precious photos. We have truly found our forever family photographer in her!
