A Southern Girl living in San Diego’s Endless Summer! I left dental career path to travel the world with just a camera in hand and spent a year capturing the world’s greatest beauty. I’m a deep believer in waking up at 5 am to own my day, rocking every jumpsuit, losing track of time dining with friends and drinking tea until it fills my veins. I traveled the world in search of life’s greatest adventure and found it in my arms as I held my children. I’m here for you. Here for your adventure and here to share everything I’ve learned along the way. 

I'm Jess.

Hey friend!

San Diego Family Photography at Balboa Park’s Desert Gardens

Balboa Park Family Photography-Desert Gardens

Balboa park is one of our all time favorite locations to shoot family portraits! There are so many incredible places to capture those beautiful, candid and timeless photos. One of my absolute favorite locations in Balboa Park is the Desert Gardens. The Desert Gardens are located on Park Blvd, adjacent to the Rose Gardens and just on the other side of the pedestrian bridge at the Natural History Museum.

The Gardens host more than 1,300 plants, breath-taking cactus and all the desert vibes you could dream of. There is plenty of space for the kids to run and play and tons of beautiful back drops to frame your family photos.

The best part about having your photo session in Balboa Park is that you can adventure beyond just one location if time allows. There are endless places to explore, play and capture beautiful portraits of your family!
