oh Hello  there!

I’m Michelle Nunes, the gal behind the lens. I am so fortunate to say that I grew to be a very diverse and cultural person, with a love for travel and adventure. I was born and raised in San José, Costa Rica, one the happiest countries in the world. I lived in Arizona for almost two decades and found that my soul latched onto the Southwestern vibes & desert skies, and I’m currently living my best life in sunny San Diego, California – The beautiful Golden State which I now call HOME. 

You’re in the right place!

Peace is my passion.
The world is my muse. 

My favorite thing about being a photographer

I want to create authentic and timeless imagery for you to cherish. I want to help tell your story, and by you I mean the REAL you -- and your real kids, and your real love. 

Every session is unique and special to me, so all I require is that you show up as yourselves and let your inner joy shine. 

connecting through family, culture & love.

 work with me!

Some fun facts about me!


Michelle is such an amazing and talented photographer!! I absolutely LOVE the photos she captured for me and my family! Not only did they come out great but she was also so sweet and patient with my boys! I highly recommend her! Thanks again Michelle!


Michelle did both my maternity and my daughters fresh 48 hour session. And both were amazing experiences with even more amazing photos. We love Michelle and her photos! Highly recommend!!!


It was such a pleasure doing our family maternity shoot with her. She truly captured our family joy and the beautiful surroundings. We had such a fun time and she got the most amazing pictures!!! So looking forward to having her in our newborn photo session soon!


Michelle is truly amazing ! Not only is she very patient while taking them ( we know kids are unpredictable) but is always alert to catch the special candid moments ... she's talented and very reasonable ! Highly recommend for ALL occasions !


Michelle is awesome, with each session she gets better and better. I'm not only saying this because she is like family to us but she is truly talented. She is our personal photographer!!!
