San Diego’s Premier Portrait Photographer

Photos are about YOU.

What is your end goal? That is where we start. At the end. Once we have a shared vision, everything else falls into place.

I’m Natalie

I’ve been a photographer for 10 years. Before that I was a teacher for 13. I love photography and I love people. As a midwestern girl, I do love the beach, but I also love so many other gems around this amazing playground of San Diego, California! If you’re looking for a studio vibe, I’ve got that as well. My studio is located near Cowles Mountain.

I will help you figure it alllll out- the outfits, the timing, the bribery involved. I got you.


Every season should be documented.
