My name is Keating and I’m a newborn and family lifestyle photographer based in San Diego, California. My husband and I are from the beautiful state of Maine, but thanks to military life, we moved our little family to the west coast fall 2016.
I’ve had a love for photography for as long as I can remember and I opened my first little photography business in Portland, ME when I was 19 years old. At the time, I specialized in weddings and high school seniors. In May 2017 we welcomed our beautiful daughter into this world. Since becoming a mom, I’ve completely fallen in love with the whole journey to motherhood. Our daughter changes every single day so I feel that it’s so important to hang onto every moment you possibly can! These are the moments you’ll want to look back on for years to come and I’d love the opportunity to capture them for you!
As your photographer, it’s my job to make your session unique. None of those cookie cutter poses and forced smiles. No obnoxious props that take away from the beauty of your newborn. I’m a lifestyle photographer which means that I love shooting raw moments. I add in some natural posing here and there, but I really love capturing real life moments. Real interactions between yourself and your little ones. Real laughs and real smiles. Think of me as being a fly on the wall overlooking a day in your life. I never want you to look or feel over posed and stiff. Every baby, child, couple, family, and person is different in their own way so I want your session to be unique to you.
When I’m not working, I love spending my time curled up on the couch with a glass of wine, some Netflix and my little family.
