San Diego Beach Photographer in North County


The sand. The sun. WILD CHILDREN. Serious Teens. The joy of watching your family dance and be silly. The tender touch of your significant other.

These moments matter. 

These are the memories that make you feel something.

This is your family in the here and now.  Whether you are quiet, wild, loud, playful, or serious, let's capture your family vibe in a  MAGICAL PLACE:  on the beaches of San Diego.


Let's Do This!

cover the bases for busy people who don't have time to plan all of the details, from picking  the ideal beach, to putting together a wardrobe that makes you feel beautiful. I'll also share tips on getting your entire family on board for photos.

Then the day of the shoot you and your family have the freedom to be fully genuine in how you interact with each other. You won't need to worry about looking perfect or getting your kids to smile.

After the session I’ll assist you in picking the perfect set of images to create your dream gallery/keepsake album/canvas portraits or prints to share with family and friends.

We are so thankful for our experience with Mary Jo and the beautiful photos she took of our family! MJ made it so natural and easy for us to be comfortable. I was nervous about our very active toddler and baby but MJ was able to keep up with them and capture the fun stage of life they are in!
Between the booking, coordinating of locations, and even outfit tips MJ's communication was amazing!

 Taking pictures with kids can be challenging but MJ immediately made my kids comfortable by talking to them about their interests. I felt like she was an old friend from the moment we met which helped with our ease during the shoot.
We received our digital photos quickly and I was blown away with the results. I cannot wait to put them up around our house.

 This is our second session with MJ. She is fun and professional. She has great ideas and good direction for clueless people like me but can also easily go with the flow when toddlers (also mine) are being toddlers. She was more than willing to work with us in this COVID environment.... I am so grateful for her and amazed at her talent. I absolutely recommend her to anyone.
