You can't freeze time, but you can capture moments.

As a parent, we all know how fast time moves. From the moment our kids enter the world, they start changing. From diapers to learning how to ride a bike, going on their first date, we get to watch it all. And as amazing as it is to watch our kids grow up and learn and experience new things, it’s gut-wrenching to know that we’ll never get that time back.

As a Dad and a photographer, I know that I have the power to capture these moments and looking back over years of photos, I’m so glad I have them. In fact, I would say they are the most cherished possessions we have.

My name is Patrick & I'm a husband, dad and a photographer in San Diego.

I strongly believe that every family deserves photos that they can cherish and hold on to for a lifetime. Capturing my own family photographs has given me a passion for capturing these moments for other families.

I have been a professional photographer for over 8 years. My work has appeared in publications such as Rolling Stone, HuffPost, and The San Diego Union-Tribune. I’ve worked with celebrities such as Ben Harper and Finneas O’Connell. I am currently the in-house photographer for Taylor Guitars.

I can't wait to meet you and your family

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, I take safety very seriously. I will be using double mask and remain at least 6-feet away from your family at all times. We will also be in an open air environment away from other people. Whenever we are not shooting, I ask that you continue to wear masks for any family members older than 3.

When you arrive at the agreed upon meeting location, we will do 5 minutes of meet and greet. I can answer any questions you have and then we will begin the session. The first part of the session is to capture the standard, posed, group images. (I like to say, the photos that Grandmas like on their refrigerator). Then I will let you guys play and do your thing. It’s my goal to blend in to the background and capture the moments of interaction between you. During this part, I might guide you to do something, but in general I like to keep it loose and riff. I find it’s best to let your kids do their thing. This keeps everyone happy and the keeps photo-worthy moments coming. If your kiddo falls and hurts their knee and cries, I’ll capture that too. I think it’s important to document everything in the most captivating and compelling way possible.

We find that about an hour is about the right amount of time to get plenty of images. Especially with kids, even though my lifestyle sessions are high-energy and fun, an hour feels like a long time. Sessions might run over 15-20 minutes so be prepared for that.

I will send out a pre-session checklist and tip sheet. However, I understand that every family is unique and it’s my goal to capture your family. I find it’s best if you and your family are dressed in a slightly elevated version of your normal attire. Beyond clothes, make sure kiddos are fed and happy. It’s more than okay to bring along toys or other objects your kids can interact with during the session to keep them engaged.

Absolutely, however this comes at an additional cost. Contact me for details.

Thank you so much for considering working with me. I am hear to answer any questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for anything I have missed.
