I'm your local, born and raised, Santa Barbara family & newborn photographer

Let's start this off with an introduction. Hey, I'm Tristin from Tristin Tracy Photography! Throughout this process, I'll be getting to know you and your family so I thought it was only fair that I tell you a bit about me, as well.

My Photography Journey

My passion for photography started when I bought my first camera at age 12. From then on I was hooked! I took photography classes all through jr. high and high school- I shot in B&W and developed my own film and prints. I spent all of my professional career in fine jewelry, but after my son was born, I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom, and my interest in photography was revitalized. When COVID hit and my husband was laid-off, I needed to go back to work but I was dreading retail. A friend of mine invited me to help out on a maternity photoshoot and I instantly fell in love! I knew this was my calling! I love being out in nature, under the sun, and bringing families together outdoors. Documenting the love, joy, and connection between families and children is amazing and I feel so lucky to be doing it for a living!

Get to Know Me

  • I'm a 4th generation Santa Barbara native.
  • It's almost impossible to offend me
  • I’ve circumnavigated the globe by boat and traveled to over 60 countries and counting...

I believe families connect best outdoors, exploring nature together. I am a photographer for laid-back families looking for an artistic and joyful photography experience. Whether it’s playing in the sand or under the shade of a big tree in the mountains, we will have a great time, I promise!
