Meet Natalie, your San Diego Family Photographer.

Nice to meet you! I’m a San Diego-based portrait photographer specializing in headshots, studio sessions, family photography, and high school senior portraits.

After spending 13 years as a music teacher, I have first-hand experience in working with children of all ages. In January of 2013 I started Natalie Chiles Photography because I value the importance of documenting the milestones in our lives.

Whether for personal portraits or family memorabilia, I can create magical images you can pass down to family members for generations.

I can’t wait to take your family portraits!

Planning a Family Portrait Session in San Diego, CA

It’s essential that we show your family’s authentic personality. Before your session we need to prepare and discuss the overall theme of the shoot. I will prepare you with guidance and collaboration so that when the day of your session comes, all you will feel is excited and ready!

Where to shoot: Sunny San Diego offers several places for family photoshoots. I can recommend a list of the best places to take family pictures in San Diego.

What to wear: Are you wondering what to wear to a family photography session? I will provide you with both a digital magazine with tons of tips, as well as one-on-one guidance via phone, text and email so that you feel 100% excited about the look your family will wear for your portraits!

How to handle your kids: No matter the age or personality, if you communicate with me what your kids need to have a successful session, we can make it happen. Some children need space to run and play, while others feel safer in a more secluded setting. I love connecting with children where they are most happy, so the more we discuss this, the better your session will be!

I’ll prepare you with everything you need to know about your family photo session.
