I Want Your Kids to Be Wild During Your Session | San Diego Family Photographer


"That was fun. When can I see you again?"

-Isaac, 5, after a session.




That's right. I want your kids to act up during the session. And I want you to not worry about it.


As a family photographer in San Diego, I've photographed kids for years. And given my pick, I'll take kids being their wild selves over standing still and smiling cooperatively at the camera any day.




Because I don't do stiff and cooperative. As a lifestyle photographer, my goal is to give you emotive, meaningful photographs that bring you joy for decades to come. In ten years, I want you to look back on your images and smile, fondly remembering those wild little souls because that's exactly what I captured at your session.


I want their authentic personalities and funny little quirks.



And I want you to not worry about it. Relax, and let me handle them.


Because my sessions are FUN. Let me take over the parenting duties for the hour, and stand back and watch as I engage them. Games, races, and silly jokes melt away the shyness and your child's true personality shows up.


I'm just going to come out and say it - kids love my sessions!


So don't worry, mom and dad. And for goodness sake, don't shout directions at them over my shoulder! 😬 😆 I've got this!


So relax and enjoy your session and your children. I promise, you will love the results.

"That was way funner than I thought it was going to be!"
