San Diego Lifestyle & Branding Photographer


Welcome! Thanks so much for stopping by my site.

I’m Christie the photographer behind Whole Heart Photography. I specialize in family & newborn photography in San Diego, CA. 


I have always loved photography and have been shooting since high school. I actually got my degree in photography and had intended on making it a career, but life got in the way. Many years later (time flies doesn’t it!?) my friends and I started settling down and growing our families. I found myself taking photos again. This quickly grew from a hobby to a business. It’s always such a pleasure for me to get to help families preserve their special moments.

I have my son Kelly to thank for my business name. I never fathomed how deep the bond would be with him. He truly is my whole heart. Follow along on Instagram and you’ll see lots of him.

If you would like to get in touch, or book a session, shoot me an email. I can be reached at
