I’m Lisette! Your next Southern California photographer! I thought I would put together this blog post to share a little bit about the person behind the camera!

First and foremost, I am a mom! I have two little girls (ages 7, 4) who occupy just about every little last inch of my energy daily! I absolutely love having two girls. My life over the last few years have been occupied with all things pink, glitter, dress ups, tea parties, and unicorns. I would not have it any other way!

I am married to my college sweetheart. We met through mutual friends 16 years ago, (wow, writing that down I can’t believe I have know him almost half of my life)! We have been married 11 years this year and our life together has been nothing short of an adventure! I am truly blessed to have an incredible man to call my husband! 

I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of California, Riverside and a Masters of Science degree in Educational Counseling from the University of La Verne. Yes, I did many years of school, 7 years to be exact after high school! So you’re probably wondering how in the world did I end up in photography?! The truth is, sometimes in life our paths end up leading in a different direction. In my case, I had my first daughter, became a stay at home mom, photographed everything in her first year and developed a passion for documenting all my family memories. And even though I have always loved photography, I fell even more in love with documenting memories for my family, friends, and eventually clients.

I love food, wine, coffee, traveling, cooking, being outdoors, and spending time with my family and friends. There is nothing better for my soul than to be in the company of the ones I love most while enjoying a good meal and a good bottle of wine! Well, any reason to enjoy a good bottle of wine! 🍷 

On weekends when I am not photographing, you can still find me with my camera outside somewhere finding my next adventure with my family. We love exploring different beaches, National Parks, like Joshua Tree National Park, and pretty much up for anything fun! Ask anyone who knows me, they can tell you I have come up with some pretty wild adventures! Remind me to tell you about the time I hiked the narrows in Zion National Park while I was 3 months pregnant! 😅
