These ARE the good ol’ days.
Come as you are…
And bring ALL that messy, beautiful love.
Let’s collect the candid giggles, genuine connections,
and individual personalities within your family.
Whether you’re knee-deep in parenthood (filled with homework & endless loads of laundry), or preparing to exchange vows with your soulmate in front of friends and family…
The truth is...
Or whatever you bribed the kids with! After we have some relaxed play at the session, you and the family can head off into the SD sunset while I get to work with the editing portion of your images.

"Look at her work and you will see what I mean. She captures the essence of who we are as a family each and every time. And we always have a blast spending time with her! You'll leave your session knowing you've just made a friend.”

There’s something to be said about the sense of security knowing that these fleeting, organic moments are documented, as well as an overall feeling of joy in sharing how beautiful your story truly is.
If there's Submarina on my lap and a Padres game on the TV, I'm a happy camper.
The rest of my world revolves around my 2 curly-headed monsters (daughters) and the guy I raise them with (my husband). Most days with them are good, the rest are great.
Over the past decade, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings, births & annual portraits—from expecting couples and newborns to parents and grandparents. I’ve hung out in some of the warmest homes overflowing with genuine love, and I’m so humbled to watch my fellow SD families grow as they return year after year.
Like many of you…
Yep. We met at the Sandwich Shop.
Grab your favorite people – the kids, the grandparents, and everyone in between – and let’s play! Nothing is more important in life than spending time with those you love, so let’s collect your moments in gorgeous photographs.

From time-management to lost dancing shoes, I’m there to help your day go smoothly.
"It is impossible to capture my child. She runs from a camera. Except when Lisa is around. As Lisa interacts and asks her to pose, she is on point! It is incredible watching her work her professional magic, and I’m so glad we get to reap the benefits!"
I’ll pop in on occasion to say hello and deal out some special goods.
