A San Diego family photographer creating colorful joy-filled images for families embracing these wild, wonderful years

hey, sunshine!

Welcome to the easiest family photos you will ever take! Forget standing still in matching clothes – I want wind in your hair, sand in your toes kind of fun. If you’re the kind of family who colors a little outside the lines, let’s get together and make some magic!

Carlsbad Family Photographer

hi! I'm Amy!

I’m a sunshine and beach loving film photographer who believes that color brings joy and that we all need a little more fun in our lives. I offer photo sessions that don’t feel like one more thing to scratch off your to-do list. It’s a time to play, laugh, tickle, hug – and get some amazing photos while you do it. I want to catch the moments, big and small, that make your family so special and unique, and I want you to walk away with art that feels like you.

Here’s what we’re gonna do: we’re going to pick your favorite place to hang out with your family (psst, if it’s the beach, I won’t be mad about it), and I’m going to tag along. Pick your favorite clothes in colors that make you smile. Your kids are going to be a bit wild, but that’s okay – that’s my favorite kind! I’ll bring my camera (let’s be honest, a lot of cameras), take a ton of pictures, and voila! In a few weeks, you’ll have a gallery of images that make you do a little happy dance.

“Amy is an absolute angel to work with! She is so professional and makes you and the family feel comfortable in every shoot and situation. Her patience with the little ones is that of a saint. I won’t let anyone else photograph my family since I’ve met her!”
