Capture everyday life & extraordinary love with Dennis Mock.

San Diego family beach portraits at La Jolla California


Our job as your photographer is to document the story. This goes far beyond the typical family portrait. This is about documenting your relationship – the small moments that you share that can sometimes go unnoticed in the busyness of daily life. Our time together is an opportunity for you to stop, slow down and just be in the moment.

Telling your story is about the tangible as well. We truly believe in the power of photographs and how important they are to surround ourselves with which is why such great care is taken even after the shoot. Beautiful prints and products are available to you and your family to grace your home and life with.

From the beginning to end, our time together and your experience will be one to remember. Your investment in your family portraiture is such an important one and we are truly honored to be a part of documenting your life. After all, your story is a beautiful one to tell.


Prior to our session together, we will schedule a phone consult. This will give us the opportunity to discuss the overall style of your shoot - wardrobe, location & color scheme.

We aim to capture the true personality of your family,so it’s important that your clothing choice speak to who you are and make you happy in the process. Best tip select clothing to coordinate with each other but not to match.

Stick to a color palette of three or four complementary colors.

Arrange your outfits ahead of time on a big bed including accessories.

Clothes that are fitted and crisp photograph best.

Your nails will be in the pictures so make sure they look nice.

Remember shoes must be cleaned and stylish too!
