Hello and welcome! 

I'm Christel, a proud wife and mama of 3. I am a natural light, family, newborn, maternity, and engagement photographer based in Encinitas, CA (serving all of San Diego and willing to travel). I love spending time with family & friends, going to the beach, watching sunsets, traveling, concerts and iced mochas.

I picked up my first SLR camera back in college when I took a black & white film photography class. I was instantly obsessed and haven't put a camera down ever since!  After much encouragement, I decided to turn this special hobby and passion of mine into a business. 

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my work!  I hope to have the opportunity to capture some special moments of you and yours. <3
