Welcome and thank you so much for stopping by!  I know there are many choices for photographers in San Diego so I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my work.

I have been a San Diego Newborn photographer since 2010 and have photographed hundreds of San Diego’s tinest residents. I was just awarded with the 2016 Top 10 Newborn Photographers in California and received a Creative Newborn Photography award from Photography Magazine.  I am a member of  the National Association of Child Photographers and regularly featured on Best Newborn Photographers as well as being a finalist in several newborn photography contests.

I am a natural light photographer and use simply the light from my window in my Carmel Valley Home studio with occasional studio lights.  I have collected many beautiful props over the years that reflect a style that is soft, timeless and natural.  I photograph your baby when he or she is 6-8 days old ideally for the beautiful sleeping shots, but I will photograph babies up to 3 weeks old in this sleep style session.   The session will be about 3 hours long and during this time, you will relax as I safely photograph your baby with my different gorgeous props.  My goal is to create beautiful artwork for you to hang on your walls and cherish for a lifetime and to preserve these fleeting moments when you first met your sweet baby.  I also will take a few parent shots during the same session.  I do photograph siblings as well, but ask you to only bring them for the first 30 minutes only so I can focus on the newborn for most of the session to give you a variety of images.   I would describe my style as dreamy, natural and timeless with lots of texture and beautiful light.

While my specialty is newborns, I also love photographing older babies, such as six month milestones like sitting up and one year old cake smashes (so much fun). I also love doing beautiful natural maternity sessions in locations such as beaches, parks, gardens, trails, or any other beautiful outdoor location or a gorgeous indoor studio session that focuses on your growing belly.  Please let me know if you would like to set up a session.

Let me tell you about myself and how I got into this crazy awesome career as a newborn photographer.   I am a Texas girl, went to college at UT Austin and have a degree in magazine journalism.  I got my first nice camera when my oldest daughter was born 16 years ago and became obsessed with photographing her beautiful face.  As the years passed, I had two more kids and the obsession continued.  I wanted to document every smile, every new thing they did or milestone they accomplished.  About 9 years ago, I was asked to photograph a few of my friends’  families for their holiday cards.  I loved working with the families and documenting their memories so I decided to start a business.  Christy Wallis Photography was born!

I began to specialize in newborns about 7 years ago.  In 2010, we moved our family to San Diego and I made a friend who had just had a baby.  She had a long struggle with fertility issues and after 8 years, had a surrogate have her baby.  She took hormones so she could breastfeed and bond with her new daughter.  She asked me to take newborn photos for her and so with her help I did my very first newborn session. The pics made her SO HAPPY, which made me SUPER HAPPY.  We had captured the happy ending to her baby’s story’.  I was hooked and never looked back.  I wanted to bottle up these emotions for as many new parents as I could so they always remember when they first met.  The pouty lips, the little fat rolls, tiny flakes and of course those first family photos with lots of cuddles and kisses.

After I knew this was what I wanted to do, I invested heavily in it with the best camera equipment out there.  I also started getting extensive training from some of the top newborn photographers in the country, who have become great friends and continue to mentor me as new ideas arise.

Can’t wait to meet you and your baby!

I think it’s pretty safe to say I fall in love a few times a week or more depending on how busy I am.  That is, fall in love with every tiny baby that I get to hold in my arms and mold into these lovely poses.  I melt with their newborn scent and with the beautiful innocence of their being.  I consider myself to have the best job in the world, documenting these new little beings that are so perfect.  Claire was no exception.  Her parents were so charming and loving and I really enjoyed the few hours we got to spend together.   When Claire was still in her mama’s belly, we took photos on the beach in Cardiff.  We couldn’t see her, but she was there in the form of a beautiful belly that her mama so lovingly would hold in her hands.  And here she was at her newborn session a few months later, with her parents entrusting me with the greatest new love of their lives and truly I am humbled.   Thank you for trusting me with your most prized possession.  I hope these photos will hope you remember her in all of her newborn perfection. ♥

Dylan’s beautiful Beach Maternity session – Cardiff Beach Maternity Photography – San Diego Maternity Photographer

We got so lucky a few weeks ago at the beach for Dylan’s maternity session at Cardiff-by-the-Sea.   The weather had been so rainy and gloomy that it was especially wonderful that we ended up with this sunset.   Dylan was just radiant and so excited to be a  mommy.  She brought her fur baby to the session and we got some sweet family shots before he becomes a big brother, and he had lots of fun romping around in the water.  I wish I could order this sunset for all my clients. The light is so befitting of the beauty of birth and new babies.

One Year Portraits and Cake Smash for sweet Madison

I wanted to post a video that shows an entire one year session so you can see all the different expressions and sweet smiles that we capture during the hour we are together in our session.  We have tons of cute outfits for baby to change into and also headbands to match.  Madison’s one year portrait session was so special because she took her first steps which we were able to capture.  Her mom squealed in excitement that we captured this moment for her.  Mom did bring a few items on her own which I’m happy to capture as well.
