Hi I'm joy, your San Diego Photographer


About Me

I was always known as the girl in school who took pictures of EVERYTHING and EVERY MOMENT... not wanting to ever forget it. I always make a joke that my memory sucks, which is why I rely on photos to remind me of the places I traveled to or the adorable moments of my children as they grow. I appreciate the candid moments when you laugh at your husbands jokes that only you may understand, or the moments when your child trips and you pick them up because you are the only one that can make them feel better. I am a mother of three children all under the ages of 4 years old-- and I get how quickly time flies. My favorite thing to do is photograph and record my children's every move. But, aside from that, I'm in love with the San Diego beaches... nothing more relaxing than watching the sunsets with a glass of wine, your feet in the sand, and your children digging for sand crabs. I'd love to show you some of the most beautiful spots to capture some of these beautiful, candid moments with your loved ones.

My San Diego Photography Reviews

review thumb review thumb

We had a Family in Torrey Pines State Park. My son just turned 2 and he loves the beach. We traveled to San Diego a few days after his birthday and we wanted to do his 2 year photo shoot on the beach. It was wonderful. Joy recommended a beautiful area for the shoot. She was friendly, responsive and did a great job of capturing my family in a natural way. The boys felt really comfortable around her immediately. She let them play and also helped us take a few posed shots. All the pictures turned out beautifully. This shoot was actually rescheduled from 2020 due to covid and the company was really helpful in allowing me to do that. -Bridget

We love traveling so I decided to do the proposal on one of our trips to San Diego. The La Jolla coast walk at sunset was the perfect location! The experience was great. Joy, our photographer captured the moment perfectly for us. -Stephen
