In August 2020, I did my first ever portrait session, and so began my love for capturing love — in all of it's forms. My love for photography, however, started way before that. I've owned a camera for as long as I can remember, and have always felt the most free when expressing myself artistically.
To me, photography is more than just taking pretty pictures. It's about making genuine connections with people, creating a space where they're allowed to be themselves in front of the camera, and capturing beautiful images that tell their unique story.
Growing up, one of my favorite pass times was looking through my family’s photo albums. I still have photos of my grandparents from 50-60 years ago that I cherish dearly. That’s why I fell in love with photography - it’s freezing these moments in time and translating them into tangible photographs that will live forever.
When you work with me, you won't only receive digital copies of your photos. With every photo session, you'll receive at least one high quality printed photo as well as access to my carefully curated print shop. I truly believe that your photos deserve to be displayed and cherished for years to come.
I'm inspired every day by the interactions I have with the people around me, whether it's with those closest to me or a random stranger in the grocery store. I truly believe everyone has a unique story to tell. That's why above all else, my priority is getting to know my clients (aka, you!).
After you decide to work with me as your photographer, you'll receive a questionnaire that will help me get to you know you better. This will allow me to tailor your photoshoot and plan it exactly the way you're envisioning it—which is a crucial part in creating photos and memories that you will love and cherish.
There are 3 ways to my heart: good food, good beer, and good company—which is what makes San Diego the perfect place for me.
Here are some more fun facts about me:
I have a 6-year old daughter who is the absolute light of my life and is the most hilarious kid I've ever met (I might be biased, but oh well).
Before portrait photography, my passion was photographing landscapes. My favorite thing is when I get to mesh the two together. I have a bucket list of photoshoot locations—just let me know if you're down for an adventure and we'll make it happen.
I wasn't kidding when I said good beer is the way to my heart, so let's hit up a good brewery and get this party started!
"Aurora absolutely nailed it! She is one of the kindest, most genuine people around and we just cannot say enough positive things about her. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
