From the Photographer:

Hi! I'm Cecilia and I am a maternity, newborn and family photographer in South San Diego County. I absolutely love photographing what I refer to, your life's most defining moments; the special milestones that give one purpose and meaning. But it doesn't stop there, one of the many things I believe is important to know about me is that I am passionate about making sure your legacy is not forgotten and this is why I believe every special photograph should be printed so that future generations can hold it in their hands and learn about you and your loved ones. The fact is we are the MOST photographed generation yet we enjoy photos the least. Sounds rather sad, doesn't it? This is why it is important to me to ensure my clients walk away with portraits they will treasure for years and generations to come. How awesome is it to hold a portrait of your grandfather, to think back about his era, to wonder what he was really like? This is the feeling I want to invoke onto our children and their future generations, and for me a disk full or usb of digital images or a post on social media just doesn't cut it! I'm not the type of photographer that will just hand you a disk and wave you good bye. I want your experience with me to be memorable and inspiring. I want to help you create the perfect image your children will one day hold in their hands or view on their walls. So let's create something beautiful together! I will be there every step of the way until you have the portrait of your dreams beautifully displayed in your home. I want to help you decorate your walls with beautiful art and the faces of the people you love most. I want to help you put together beautiful wall collages, pick the perfect portrait to hang over the mantle, and/or create a gorgeous heirloom album that can be passed down from generation to generation. I want you to cherish these memories by helping you preserve them in a form that will allow you to easily share with your family and friends. I also want you to be able to display these portraits proudly in your home and always look back to the time when these loving memories were captured. As a mother, I display portraits of my children through out my home and there's nothing more heartfelt then staring at them and remembering how little and precious my children were and how much they are growing and evolving as loving confident people. I can talk about this topic for days but I know we don't have time for that so I leave you with one final thought: How do you want to be remembered?

Random facts about me:

  • I am the wife of a caring and loving man who served 22 years in the military. When he retired from the service we decided to make San Diego our permanent home. There is no place we love more.

  • I am the proud and happy mother of four girls. My oldest is who I named my business after and the other three are triplets! They are the world to me and they make me smile every single day, A LOT! But they also make me hide in the pantry and eat cookies alone.

  • I absolutely love photography and have photographed just about everything, from landscape to famous people and even runway and red carpet. But nothing warms my heart and soul more than newborn photography. My work is my outlet and I really enjoy it, like really, really!

  • I love makeup! you wouldn't know it since most days I go bare face.

  • I love cooking! Making dinner with my husband is one of my favorite things to do.

  • I love to craft and sew! I make a lot of my own props and once upon a time I used to make my own jewelry.

  • I cannot express how much I like coffee, sparkling wine, cheese, salsa, and dark chocolate! oh and tacos...I love tacos.

  • I spent almost 20 years in the legal field and I also have a degree in HR management, but I don't miss working in an office at all.

Hope you have enjoyed reading about me. I can't wait to learn more about you and your family!
