The One Where You Find The Photographer You've Been Looking For

your photos should be something that light you up

My approach to photography is laid back, fun and intimate.
The goal is to create an environment you can be yourself in.
One that represents who you are- right now.
Creating moments and imagery you can look back on for years to come and still feel yourself in that moment.

Hiring me as your photographer is more than asking me to click a button and throw on a preset. 
It means choosing me to capture  your most special and treasured moments. The ones that take you back. The ones that otherwise might happen and you'll sit back and say "dang, I wish I had a photo of that". 
Hiring me as your photographer is kinda like hiring a new friend, hype woman and teammate- all in one.

I am Tia Esther

INTUITIVE PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Growing up in Southern California gave me a deep love for all things nostalgia. I grew up in a small town where creating from imagination was one of the best gifts you could explore and it led to me growing up with a camera in my hand on and off throughout my high school career and thereafter. It became a permanent attachment to me during 2018, officially. 

Capturing couples, maternity, newborns, births, retreats, weddings and elopements has given me a broad view and understanding of so many different occasions and emotions. Understanding the importance of each one is something I pride my business on. Whether you're getting married, building a new brand, growing your family... I am here to capture it in the most authentic way possible.

FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE

cinematic moments brought to life from authentic interactions

DETAILS

Creating images that reflect you starts in the details. It starts with you and what you choose to make these photos a significant reflection of you, in this moment. My work is in providing you with tools and prompts to get the results you want. Providing an environment that is welcoming, fun and relaxed is priority in order to feel the most at-home as possible. Whether we are at a fancy location or in your backyard, comfort is the most important aspect to bring out natural emotion and interactions providing cinematic images.

DELIVERING THE UNEXPECTED

your life... through my lens

invest in the moment

There is nothing like arriving to a shoot and feeling like we already know each other and being able to dive right into the session. Your images are not just pictures on my camera, they are lifelong heirlooms and I plan on treating them as such. Carefully taking my time photographing intentional moments and editing them with utmost care and attention to detail. When you become my client, you become part of my circle. With mutual trust, respect for my work and communication on expectations, we will make a dream team! Documenting these special moments for you is something I do not take lightly and delivering them to your satisfaction is my goal.

I aim to give you the best experience possible from inquiry to gallery delivery.

You can't put a price on timeless images and money is an energy exchange.

When booking your session/time with me, it's important to remember that you're not paying for me to click a button and throw on a preset. Anyone can do that. If everyone did what I do, it wouldn't be worth what it is. You are paying for an experience and someone to guide you through the process of having photos taken. It can be daunting and thats understandable. That is why I am here. Creating an environment you can be comfortable in to bring out the most authentic version of yourself is not something that you can find just anywhere. If you've landed here, I believe you resonate with my point of view on photography and this journey. Making your photos your own, not something cliche everyone sees on Pinterest. That's what I do here. 

let's do this!
