I'm Amira and I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer in the San Diego area. When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me e-biking around Carlsbad with my two girls and my husband. Although I have my graduate degree in Library Science (and should be a librarian as we speak) capturing photos stole my heart and there's no looking back (sorry Dad!) I spend my days cataloguing photo galleries instead of books and nothing makes me happier!

Hi there! I'm so glad you found yourself here.

working with me


I learned from personal experience that it doesn't matter how beautiful a photo is if you don't like what YOU look like in the photo. I've taken several posing courses and I will make sure to pose you in order to capture your most flattering angles.

Flattering Angles


All of my clients receive a Style Guide after booking their session. It's filled with detailed information about coordinating outfits, as well as picture examples and store recommendations.

Style Guidance


The editing process is my favorite part, and I spend so much time making sure your photos are perfect. That means removing people, trashcans and signs in the background, making sure your skin looks amazing, your arms look slim, and any photo in the gallery is ready to frame on the wall of your home.
