Ever since I was a teenager, I have always enjoyed taking pictures with the camera my dad passed onto me, capturing the things, people and places around me. In 2007, I decided to turn this passion of mine into my career. Since then I have been shooting weddings, engagements, special events, family, kids and babies. I love telling stories with my camera, and my pictures demonstrated my characteristic style and unique perspective, simple yet elegant. I take great pride to apply my skills and talent to document the important and precious moments of life of my clients into lasting fine art pictures. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to capture these memories for my clients so they can cherish a lifetime.
I am a Southern California storyteller photographer, capturing your everyday life and times in images. For me, it is all about authentic imagery that represents who you are. I’ve always been one to document, but my love of photography really blossomed with the birth of our first child. I inherited my first DSLR camera, which I enjoyed, but it wasn’t until a friend taught me how to use the manual mode that I realized pointing and shooting play a very small role in creating a compelling image. So my quest began: to make images — creatively and expertly — that move the viewer. Soon after, I had life-changing moments to document: our 2nd daughter’s cleft palate surgery and bringing our son home from the hospital for the first time. But I have realized what I enjoy most is capturing the little things: how she cocks her head when she pushes her palms into the play dough, or how he clambers up onto a bike that is way too big for him. For me, the joy of capturing a moment beautifully and memorably is the most exciting part of photography. I would love to share this gift with you, to come together for a time and create a collection of images that bring you just such joy.
I fell in love with photography as a teenager. After I had my first child. I wanted to catch every moment, every smile, every milestone. Today, when I look back at photographs of my children, memories come flooding back. The photograph of my daughter standing on a chair makes me remember how she loved to climb, on everything! The photo of my son in a miniature chef’s hat and apron reminds me of when he was 3 and wanted to be a chef. He made up recipes for me, like asparagus cookies! I’m passionate that everyone has a story and everyone deserves to have their story documented. I want to capture real, authentic moments that tell your story, so you can look back and remember those moments as if they happened yesterday. It doesn’t matter where you are in your story, capturing the connection between you and those you love is my goal. Whether you are a young couple in love, awaiting the birth of your little one, or a family with teenagers, your love and connection should be captured. When you book a session with me, there won’t be fake smiles and lots of “say cheese” moments. I’m a visual storyteller and your story will be filled with laughter and fun. I’m not the right photographer for everyone, but if this sounds like the type of session you are looking for, then I’m the right photographer for you. Let’s get started telling your story!

Hello, friends! I'm Dennis Mock a San Diego Lifestyle Family Photographer. I love documenting all the connection, personality, and most of all laughter that makes your family uniquely beautiful through fun-filled sessions. Through my photography style, I'm able to mix fun candids and relaxed portraits, to tell the genuine story of your family. Whether it's at the beach, the park, your home, or your favorite place to go, let's capture this special time together.
I love photographing family energy... been doing it in the documentary feel for 17 years. Family sessions are one of the most cherished things for my camera. As proof, despite nearly two decades as a pro, and being published from music albums to museums, my most cherished honor in the medium is an image of my late Uncle Ron, on the front cover of his funeral program. It captures a wily smirk and was made at a large family gathering one sunny Summer day in New Hampshire. It meant the world to be surprised with that. The natural moments of connection of your family, through big open hearts, is what I'm after. It's a mix of documentary, lifestyle and fine art. It's real. It's slow and soft or loud and crazy... it's everything. The goal is to become one of your family photographers through life, one session at a time. Often we'll put something physical that you already share together as a family. Could be cooking. Could be basketball or surfing or soccer or skiing. You enjoy, and I'll document the magic. For more of my history and accolades, please head on over to my website.

As a father of 3, I know how crazy parenthood is. I also know how fast time goes by and how important it is to record those fleeting moments that make up this wild thing we call 'life'. That is why I feel, more strongly then ever, that it is very crucial to be as unobtrusive as I can be when making photographs of families so that I do not interrupt those moments that make this whole thing worthwhile and precious. To document those little moments that you will look back on and make you smile is not just for you, the parent, but more so for your children. For them to have an honest record of how your life and family were in truth. Life is too short not to.
