Capturing empowering stories in Southern California since 2012


Your life. Your love. Your moment. 

Photography is the art of making memories tangible.

I am a wife, mom and Latina entrepreneur with a passion to document families, business owners, seniors, and couples. My love language is creativity and my passion for photography began when my girls were itty bitty babies. My passion blossomed into a career when I launched my business officially in 2012. I aspire to capture your happiest memories, and I can't wait to turn your life's most special moments into stories you can hold on to forever.  

Making memories is not the same


if you can't hold on to them

I couldn't love our family photos more

Cecilia has done our family pictures for several years now, and I couldn’t love them more. With a family of 6, there is a ton going on, and she amazes me every time with her calm demeanor, and expertise and eye for the absolute best pictures. Thank you for all of our priceless memories!

I cried when I saw the final photos - the photos were so beautiful and special. 

Cecilia has captured some of my life's most meaningful and beautiful moments. My wedding photography experience was extraordinary. Cecilia was professional and thorough, capturing every moment. I cried when I saw the final photos - the photos were so beautiful and special. Most recently, Cecilia did a Mommy and Me photoshoot for us. I was nervous that it would be difficult to photograph my toddler, but Cecilia captured the best smiles, and my son had so much fun. Cecilia's experience and talent are indeed demonstrated in the final images. I treasure all the beautiful moments Cecilia has expertly captured.

We're so glad we chose Cecilia to celebrate our daughter's accomplishments

What a special, personal experience Cecilia gave us in capturing our daughter with stunning Senior photos. We are so in love with them and each one is better than the next. We had such a relaxing time as Cecilia found such artistic ways of expressing our daughter and her accomplishments. The photo shoot with Cecilia made for a sweet memory that we will treasure from this incredibly amazing time in our daughter's life. Thank you Cecilia! Can’t wait for our next Senior.

We were absolutely pleased how our photos came out, just amazing!

Cecilia was amazing with our fall family photo shoot. I expressed we were a bit of an edgy family and location was my only requirement, she picked out a few places but it only took one look at her first choice and we were super stoked. Cecilia made taking photos a breeze, she told us exactly what to do and she made us all feel confident, I have never been so comfortable taking photos before. We were absolutely pleased how our photos came out, just amazing! We will always come back.
