Oh Baby! | At Home with a Newborn

By, November 15, 2017

There’s nothing like having a newborn at home! During a newborn photo session, our goal is to capture the joy and emotions of your newly expanded family. We focus on capturing images that preserve intimate moments, such as the special way mom holds her baby, the pride in dad’s eyes, and the interaction between loving parents. Who knew such a small little person could impact your life so much?

Staring at Baby
We capture images from a unique perspective to add interest, and to engage the viewer in the photograph.
Tiny Feet
We use scale to show just how small your newborn is, for such an important person!
Royal Baby
Mom and Dad adore baby
Newborn Smile
Baby and parents in the nursery
To remain unobtrusive, and to show your daily life during this time period, we typically make use of natural light.
Swaddled baby
We photograph your newborn where they will be most comfortable, such as in a nursery or crib.
Kisses for baby

We book newborn photo shoots throughout San Diego! To see more, check out full galleries of newborn portrait photography or schedule a newborn photo session for your own family!

It’s Also The Parents’ Big Day

By, August 01, 2017

Many of us on the True Photography team have kids. Someday, they will get married – possibly to other “True” kids, who knows :) Whoever they wind up with, their wedding day will be amazing! It will be so much fun for us to experience the wedding from an entirely new perspective. Not as a wedding photographer, or bride or groom, but as a parent!

With this in mind, as photographers, we make sure it is a very special day for the parents as well. We are mindful to capture raw emotions, interactions with family and guests, and that iconic family portrait that will end up lovingly displayed at home. Here are some favorite examples of these special moments from recent weddings.

What a Mighty Good Man | Father’s Day

By, June 19, 2016

It’s Father’s Day! To mark the occasion, we want to say thanks to Dads everywhere :)

In addition to being honored today, many fathers also play a big part during the wedding day. Whether it’s tearfully walking his daughter down the aisle, or showing off some funky moves during parent dances, Dad has definitely earned his moment in the sun.

To celebrate the unconditional love Dads provide, we’ve gathered a few of our favorite photos of “Dads being Dads” on the big day. Enjoy!

One special way to honor Dad on the wedding day is with a First Look. By setting aside a little quiet pre-ceremony time together, you can show Dad how important he is to you. For example, at Allison and Justin’s wedding at Condor’s Nest Ranch, we captured Allison’s father’s reaction to seeing her for the first time (below).

During Anjali and Jay’s wedding at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego (below), guests surprised Jay’s father with an impromptu outdoor dance. As Jay looked on, we were able to quickly react, and grabbed this fun crowd scene.

We love capturing unguarded expressions of joy and emotion. For example, at Allison and Adam’s ceremony at La Valencia (below), Allison’s father shared his excitement with a huge grin. These moments, endearing and genuine, always leave a soft spot in our hearts.

If couples have little ones, we love finding fun and creative ways to include these “mini me’s” into the day’s photos. At Shara and Giovanni’s wedding at Grand Tradition, Giovanni’s son was dressed just as sharp as Dad, and rocked these adorable baby moccasins (below).

During Morvarid and Sahand’s reception at the Metropol Banquet (below), Morvarid and her father entertained guests with a lighthearted, traditional dance, which capped off the night’s activities.
