San Diego Family Photographer Christine Hyjek

Having grown up in California and New Jersey, I feel very at home on both coasts. Once we moved the California I spend most of my time in or by the pool. I became a competitive swimmer and swam through college at UCSD. After college I moved to NYC where I work and lived for 8 years. Although I sometimes miss the city, I'm happy to be back in San Diego. My relationships with my friends and family have always been important to me. Before I knew it was, I was documenting my life, I took tons of pictures. I covered my childhood bedroom with 100's of these photographs— 2 and a half walls. Over the years, I had the opportunity to travel for fun and for swimming. My photos evolved from snapshots of friends to documenting my trips and experiences. As a professional photographer, I've worked to combine documentary photography with my passion and eye for capturing special and candid moments with loved ones and my clients.

San Francisco, CA lifestyle photographer Douglas Despres

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.

Los Angeles lifestyle photographer Alaina Nunez - California

I am married to a wonderful, supportive man who I fell in love with when I was 18. We have 5 children who we home school which means, we do life together, and God uses each of us to teach and help each other each and every day. We encourage our children to think for themselves and always look for ways to help others. We seek to speak life and truth into them and want them to know that they are capable of creating and doing amazing things because we know and serve an amazing God. I’m an ENFP, I like to teach, craft, bake, read, learn new things, create, have deep conversations with my kids and husband, explore the outdoors, travel (we love road trips!) and of course, document life with my camera! I would love to document the beautiful memories. Whether it be your beautiful baby bump, the Birth Story of your little one you've waited 9 months to meet or a Newborn Session capturing all the precious tiny details. I would love to document your Family Story, in whatever journey you are on. I want to show you how your ordinary is in fact extraordinary. How there is beauty in the mess.
