If you know family is not just the most important thing, it's everything...
If you want to capture your family just the way it is...
If you aren't into the traditional sit & smile pretty pictures...

Then this is for you.

For me, as a San Clemente Family Photographer, capturing a family just as they are is what it's all about. I don't want to force someone to sit and smile at the camera, but rather, I want to capture your family interacting naturally and just enjoying each others company.

A little bit about my style: I am a natural light photographer that loves to capture families in a beautiful outdoor location that means something to that family, or even in the comfort of their home. Whether it's playing together at the beach, or baking cookies together in your PJs, I want to see who you are as a family and I want to capture that so you'll always have it to look back on and remember. I use a mixture of color and black and white images to portray the emotion of the moment caught. I offer more of a lifestyle photography session with little directional posing when needed.

What I love about family photography: Personally, I love the way so many personalities make up a whole unit. Your family dynamic is unique to you. No two families are the same, and I love that! It keeps things interesting for me. I love to capture families just being themselves. Goofy, fun, playful. It truly brings joy to my life to be able to photograph families spending time together.

Why family photography is important: In my honest opinion, family photographs aren't captured nearly as often as they should be. As a kid, and even now as an adult, one of my favorite things to do was/is look through old family albums to see what everyone was like "back then". I believe it is SO IMPORTANT to print your family photos. Whether it's in an album, or on a canvas, or in a wall collage that looks like a family tree. Having photos that you can actually touch and feel is something I believe every family not only should have, but NEEDS to have!
