HELLO & WELCOME! My name is Phoenix and yes that is my real name! I am your bubbly and energetic Southern California family photographer. From your anniversary celebrations, to maternity, to newborns and more, I’m your girl!

I believe every family deserves to document themselves no matter the dynamic. My sessions are not the boring, “look at me and smile” type. We are going to have fun and forget I have this bulky camera in my hands. Showcase your real smiles, real emotions and even hilarious bloopers!

If you’re like me, you don’t like getting in front of the camera often. Give me a chance to show you how beautiful you and your family truly are. I offer full retouching services that make your portraits flawless.

“You are amazing at what you do!!! Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into the pictures. I highly recommend you, to anyone looking to for a photographer!”

“Phoenix came to a home we were renting in Kahala to take photos of my husband and I with our four kids as well as my parents. She took the time to chat with me prior to the shoot about the time of day and the images that were most important to me. We had a mix of candids and posed shots and each was perfectly framed and beautifully lit with the perfect scenic backdrop. My children are older so they were not too difficult but my mother was quite a chore. Phoenix handled her with the grace & patience of a saint! I will definitely use KM Ivelisse in the future!”



I strive to capture whimsical images that portray your family’s personality. I specialize in family photography and all of the unscripted moments that come with it. Capturing your family portraits is more than just a push of a button. The magic to my images solely lies on the family in front of my lens and me behind the camera. Let me be the photographer from your engagement, to your maternity, newborn, cake smash, and more.


I believe everyone deserves quality and professional family portraits. I am extremely flexible and offer payment plans if needed. Message me for more information. My session fee begins at $150, and then there is a wide range of collection options from there! Look forward to hearing from you! 

“I had a lovely time working with this gal. She did such an amazing job even on the photos that she let me choose from out of our session. I can’t wait to see the final pictures. Thank you for such a good time.”

“Phoenix took our first family photos! She’s so easy going. She made me and my family feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to have photos done!”

“Our photography session was phenomenal! Not only did this amazing photographer do a last minute birthday shoot for our baby after our first photographer bailed, but she made it so special. 10/10 would do it again!”
