Are you searching for a relaxed, yet elevated photography experience? 

I'm Santa Barbara's premier family & newborn photographer.

 For families looking for a joyful, artistic, and boutique photography experience.


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 PHOTOGRAPHY process

1: Book Your photo shoot WITH ME

Fill out my contact form and let me know what vibe you're looking for in your Santa Barbara session location. 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, use my styling guide to help you build cohesive outfits, and get feedback and suggestions from me. As a 4th generation Santa Barbara Photographer, I know all the best spots.

3: expect a joyful photo EXPERIENCE

Enjoy your fun photo experience full of love, joy, and connection. Embrace the chaos, enjoy each other, and go with the flow! You'll love your family photos so much more if you do.

4: Receive Your Images & album

Finally, within 3 weeks, you'll receive your online gallery full of joy-filled images of you with your loved ones. Your complimentary photo album will follow just days later. You can order prints and wall art right from your gallery if you wish.

Extended Family Photography Session

starting at $1320 (depending on multigenerational size) ALL-INCLUSIVE lifestyle portrait SESSION


Extended family sessions take place outside with nature as your backdrop. With sand between your toes 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.

An Extended Family Lifestyle Portrait Session includes multigenerational family members, usually lasting up to 1.5 hours. Includes all high-resolution digital files from your gallery in both color and black & white (minimum of 90), presented in a private online gallery for viewing, downloading, and sharing. Each family unit will receive their own individualized luxury photo album from your session. Leave the layout to me. I will design and deliver beautiful custom albums that will last for generations. The gallery will be available within 3 weeks after the session date.

Cinematic Family Films

When you book a session with me, you have the option to add on a 2-3 minute cinematic film with music. It's a way to encapsulate a small yet meaningful slice of time, documented in a way that will endure for generations to come.
