natural light san diego photographer for maternity, newborns, families & LGBTQIA+ love

I have worked with other photographers in the past, but not one of them can compare to her level of professionalism, expertise, and the overall experience we had with her. She knew exactly how to get my son feeling comfortable and in his own element to really bring out his personality in each photo, he is normally nervous around strangers and impossible to really capture. If I wasn’t moving, I’d never use another photographer, she is really amazing!!!!! It was an absolute pleasure to work with her. If you have the chance to book her, DO NOT HESITATE, worth every penny!!

I would give Margarita 10 stars if I was able.

She really gets into the photoshoots. I have not found another photographer like her. The photos that she has captured of my daughter and I are amazing. You will not find a better photographer. We will definitely be coming back for more pictures in the future.

Margarita is amazing we have worked with her twice.

I'm new to the area and she was the first that reached out and so glad she did. She former military and is invested in that community.. along with other groups she is passionate about it. These are just a FEW of her amazing work! Margarita is absolutely amazing to work with and look how talented she is. She communicates with you so easily to the point that we were texting as friends. I was so shy to do these and so happy how much fun and easy this was. I can’t wait till she does our newborn session! 😍

Wow 100% y’all need to book her.

This was our first photo shoot with Margarita and will definitely plan to have her take more photos of our family! She knew exactly how to get those once in a lifetime photos. She knew how to work with our kiddos, which was absolutely amazing, she had patience and knew what would work with them.

Definitely recommend her!

She was so sweet and patient during our newborn shoot and made me feel confident and beautiful during my maternity photos. Truly an outstanding photographer and you can clearly see that she takes a lot of pride in her craft. I can’t wait to book again!

Love love love her work!

She was so nice and passionate and made the experience that much better for us. We did a pregnancy announcement on the beach and the pictures are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! This was my first experience with a professional photographer and it was amazing. Our little family looked so beautiful in all of our pictures. We had a little accident where I got hit by a massive wave but we all laughed about it and the pictures came out so much better because of the genuine laughter and smiles we had. 10/10 would highly recommend. And we’ll be working with Margarita for the rest of our pregnancy pictures 😊

Working with Margarita was an ABSOLUTE pleasure.
