Memories Worth Everything

Meet Your Local Guide & Photographer/ Videographer

Hi, I'm Tristin

I’m a local Santa Barbara family lifestyle photographer, born and raised. I believe that choosing a photographer is an important and personal decision. If we get to work together we will laugh, play, and have a great time! Capturing the unique beauty in every family is my passion and I look forward to turning your love into art.

I, along with the Rosewood Concierge, am here to help!

the walk & shoot process

Fill out my contact form and let me know what vibe you're looking for in your curated nature experience. If we are a good fit, we will choose a date and get you on my calendar!

2: I'll help you Get YOUR FAMILY Prepared

We will narrow down an exact location based on your family's capabilities and adventure level. As a 4th generation Santa Barbara Photographer, I know all the best spots.

Enjoy your walk full of beauty, nature, and connection. Embrace the adventure, enjoy your family, and go with the flow! You'll love your family photos so much more if you do.

Private Walk & Shoot Experience

$1100 ALL-INCLUSIVE lifestyle portrait SESSION experience


Private guided tour with a native Santa Barbarian, born and raised, stroll through the beautiful trails and meadows that our city has to offer all while taking photographs of you and your family enjoying your hike. Snacks and beverages are provided.

Walk & shoot experience takes place outside with nature as your backdrop. With the wind in your hair or under the shade of a giant oak tree, you and your family will authentically play in golden light. I strive to communicate love and connection through my camera. Think less posing or props, and more candid shots, witnessing joy and emotion. The goal is not to get a stiff and posed shot with everyone looking at the camera, but to photograph the true essence of your family.

Includes a walking session with immediate family members, usually lasting up to 2.5 hours. Includes all high-resolution digital files from your gallery in both color and black & white (minimum of 75), presented in a private online gallery for viewing, downloading, and sharing. You will receive a complimentary luxury photo album from your session. Leave the layout to me. I will design and deliver a beautiful custom album that will last for generations. The gallery will be available within 3 weeks after the experience date. 

Cinematic Films

When you book a session with me, you have the option to add on a cinematic film. It's a way to encapsulate a small yet meaningful slice of time, documented in a way that will endure for generations to come.
