Why Choose Me?

Hello! Thank you for visiting my website! I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer based out of Long Beach, California who loves to shoot the special, fun, and joyful moments of everyday life. It thrills me to meet new families, kids, babies, and couples and be able to capture their unique personalities and the real moments between them.

Sessions with me are full of laughter and fun. I live for real smiles and genuine connection. Will I pose you and get that money shot mommy wants with everyone looking at the camera? Yes! Will I let your kids run and play and be silly? Also, yes! Bring me all the craziness and chaos that comes with your family! I will capture it all! I believe that being able to capture precious moments that people can look back at for years to come is a gift, and I strive to give each and every one of my clients photographs that they will treasure for a lifetime. 

If you're interested in booking a portrait session, stop by my contact page and send me a message. I look forward to meeting you!


Get to Know Me Better...

  1. I love the sunshine! Bright, sunny days make me happy. That's why I'm all about (and only shoot in) natural light.
  2. Love stories are my fave. Bring me all the romance novels and movies!
  3. I could eat ice cream all day everyday.
  4. Friends who become family are everything. I'm super down for my people.
  5. I hate to cook. Worst thing ever!
  6. I'm a believer in treating everyone with kindness. You never know what is going on is someone's world, and even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference.
  7. In addition to being a photographer, I am a wife, mom, and a college professor. I started a full-time teaching career in 2002, but after getting married and having my three babies, I decided to take a little break to be at home. Now I’m a part-time teacher/part-time professor, and I’m enjoying every moment and milestone I get to witness with my kids and every photograph I get to take.
  8. These four people pictured here are my world.

"Priscilla is a master at her craft. We have taken family pictures since my ten-year-old was born. She is by far the best we've worked with. Priscilla is great at getting the 'natural pose' from kids and portraying the love family has for one another. She works to build relationships, and her effort and energy show in all her work."
