Capturing Moments that matter

San Diego
Family, newborn + wedding photographer

If you're looking for a fun, laid-back session full of snuggles and laughter, then I'm a great fit for you! Come ready to love on your people and I'll capture authentic joy  and connection. 

I believe photos are the best way to capture the season of life you are in. As the saying goes, the days are long but the years are short.  Let me help freeze those fleeting moments of your wedding day, growing bump, newborn baby bliss, and family chaos through the lens of my camera.  

Welcome friend!

Working with Desiree for our family photos was such an amazing experience, and the photos themselves are something we will always treasure! With three small children, taking photos can feel a bit daunting but Desiree makes the experience comfortable, fun and enjoyable.

Love Love LOVE Desiree! She made our wedding day so easy and made taking photos so fun. Our photos couldn't have turned out any better. As a photographer she takes charge and puts you at ease. Our engagement photos were just as fun as our wedding ones too! She's a joy to work with.


Desiree was super responsive, professional, and very easy to work with. I was a little worried about how my sometimes quiEt shy children  would do But Desiree has a way with children and a real understanding for how they work. The final results are amazing and we will cherish and treasure the photos forever!
