Are you searching for a San Diego family photographer? If so, then you have come to the right place! JnR Photography is San Diego based and has been providing families with high-quality photography for over 3 years.

We are a one stop shop when it comes to San Diego family photography because we offer everything from digital images, to large scale framed prints - and everything in between! We would love to tell you more about everything we have to offer and how booking your photo session with us will be beneficial to you!

Why Have We Chosen Family Photography?

Out of all the types of photography, there's to choose from, family photography is what we are most passionate about! We love spending time with families and capturing all of those precious moments that they want to remember forever.

We have been photographing families for over three years now (in San Diego for nearly 2), because it's our passion - not just a job. We enjoy every minute of the process from meeting new people and getting their children to laugh and smile, to editing photos so everyone looks amazing. That is why San Diego families choose us over other family photographers!

A family photo session isn't just a 'session' for us - it's a great experience. For both you and for us.

Why Should You Hire Us As Your San Diego Family Photographer

From our experience, great photographers aren't just great at taking beautiful family portraits.

More often than not, most families would be ok with having 'sub-par' or 'average' family photos, if the experience was amazing. Think about it - if you went to a family session in San Diego and had a miserable experience... the photographer didn't talk or compliment you or your family, never mentioned how the photos were coming out, and didn't even tell you to have a wonderful day... He/she just made the experience awkward...

But! The photos he sent you came out amazing... what would you remember of that day? When you look at those pictures years from now - you'll remember that day and how it made you feel... you may even discard them later as to not bring up those memories...

Now, On The Flip Side...

If you had an amazing time and connected with the photographer. You were laughing, your kids were happy and playing and having so much fun... The photographer even thanked you for being an awesome family, couldn't wait to edit and send them to you, and to have an amazing rest of your day...

The photos he sends you were good - but not great. You were wishing for more of a 'wow' factor... But! You're ok with that - you have good pictures of you and your family, your kids were laughing and will remember that day for sure...

Who would you rather have?

We Take Pride In Being The Better Of Both Worlds!

That's right! Don't mistake us for taking 'average' photos but giving a great experience... We are great at both. Again, we aren't the ones to boast about our accomplishments or call ourselves an amazing photographer - this is about you and your experience...

...and we offer a very memorable experience along with amazing results.

This Is Why We Should Be Your Family Photographer.

We're laid back, but take what we do very seriously. We are very understanding and know that not all children are the same. We're about as patient as patient comes... All while giving great direction and producing excellent results.

You can find examples of our work here.

How Do I Schedule An Appointment With You?

Client experience is our number one priority... and that doesn't change when it comes to scheduling/booking with us.

Over the last 6 months - we've been gathering information from new and returning customers about our booking/scheduling process. The general consensus was, "I would like to book my session without ever having to reach out to anyone. I want to be able to do it all myself". That's exactly what we did.

You Can Schedule A Family Session With Us Straight Through Our Website.

You're able to pick the type, package, add-ons/extras, date, time, and even pay - all within the same window.

You can leave us a comment within the window or drop us an email if you'd like the location to be Rancho Bernardo, La Jolla, Del Mar, San Marcos, even Downtown San Diego or the Hotel Del Coronado, etc... we service all areas. You'd just have to let us know the exact location you had in mind.

If you aren't sure what location would be good - we would be more than happy to help!

Your Experience As Our Client

We talked about this quite a bit earlier - but I wanted to send this home with its own section in this article.

About 6 months after starting our business - we knew that the most important aspect to our business was client experience. We stopped focusing and emphasizing about how great our photos are - to how great and amazing the experience with us is!

We strive to make the experience before and after the session as smooth as possible. You're able to book with us very easily, we offer multiple forms of communication in case you have questions... after the session, it's just as smooth. We may send an update or two, letting you know the progress of your photos and any questions we may have for you in regards to them.

You're then able to pick the photos that you like the most (after they've been edited). More details on this topic in a little bit.

During the session we strive to put out clients at ease. We understand that most people/families aren't used to their picture being taken. People get nervous (we get nervous behind the camera too, believe it or not). Also, children aren't always cooperative... we totally get it.

It's our job to be patient and understanding. You shouldn't expect any less from us.

We just want you to have a good time and walk away looking forward to your photos and the memories we were able to capture.

Family Portrait

  • One Location
  • Up to 6 subjects (including pets)

We offer 3 different packages to accommodate those who don't need a bunch of photos and for those who do.

The main difference between the packages are time, number of photos, number of subjects, and % discount on add-ons/extras (the higher the package, the better the discount).

All packages have the same:

  • Editing techniques (full editing w/ mild-moderate retouching)
  • Delivery window (5-7 days)
  • Online password protected gallery
  • Print Release

Again, we service the greater San Diego CA area and are willing to travel anywhere in southern California - please reach out to us if you are requesting services outside of San Diego county.

How Your Photos Are Delivered

Simply put - we email you very detailed instructions on how to access, pick, and obtain your photos.

Generally speaking, we usually shoot and edit roughly 40% more photos than the package that you purchased. Example - you purchased a package with 10 images. We would then shoot, pick, then edit between 15 and 20.

This gives you options. You're able to look through the gallery and pick the ones you like the most... instead of us sending you the ones we think you'd like. Again, striving to make your experience the best it can be.

We Use A Gallery System

So you can view your completed photos. Once you're in your gallery - you pick the ones you like the most. You do this by adding them to your cart (much like shopping anywhere online). We create a voucher code that covers the amount of photos in your package.

If the amount that you picked exceeds your package limit - you would then be able to purchase just those extra photos, separate.

Super easy, simple, and gives you the freedom of choice.

Add-Ons And Extras For Your Family Photos

These are options we implemented at the start of 2021.

We were getting requests for more pictures, more time, and more locations (from time-to-time). We thought it was only fitting to offer this.

It's also a way to save money in the long-run. Adding extra photos, time, and/or subjects can be much cheaper with addons instead of stepping up a package.

Here are our extras/addons and their rates:

  • 5 additional photos (+$30)
  • Rush delivery (3 Days)(+35)
  • Rush Delivery (24 hours) (+$50)
  • Additional Location (includes an extra 30 minutes for location change)(+$75)
  • Additional Time (+30 Minutes) (+$50)
  • Additional Subject (+$50 per subject including pets)

Remember, the rates on our extras drop the higher the package your purchase (up to 35% off with the highest package).
