As a blogger and social media influencer, I am constantly on the quest to find a talented photographer for the events that I host. As a mom and wife, I am always on the quest to find a talented photographer for our family photos.
This time of year, it is especially important for me to find a talented photographer because this is when we take our annual holiday photos. And with a somewhat unpredictable toddler and baby, we cross our fingers that just one photo will work to frame in our home of our growing family and also to use for our annual Christmas card.
I love working with and supporting local photographers and especially mom photographers, and this year, we had an exceptional experience working with Tommie Cochrum from Tommie Girl Photography. She specializes in maternity, newborn, children, and family photo sessions. She is located in the Inland Empire but will travel to Orange County, San Diego and Los Angeles. Do you live somewhere else? Contact her to see if she will travel to you! She specializes in natural light but also has a studio in the Temecula/Murrieta area.

Tommie is extremely kind and patient and works really well with children! She was able to make both of my kids smile and look at the camera at the same time! And she suggested the prettiest location for our shoot. We felt very relaxed and had a lot of fun! Even though we had just met minutes before she started taking photos, it felt like we had known each other for years!
My husband is not very fond of getting his photo taken and when we left the photo shoot he turned to me and said that Tommie made him feel at ease and made it easy for him to take photos. It was an effortless mini session. We were able to grab photos of the entire family, just the children, and combinations of us and our kids. Even though she typically has a two-week turn around, we were able to view our photo gallery just after a week, which is quick compared to some photographers!
Tommie is in high demand and books up quickly, so make sure to reserve your mini session as soon as you can. If you aren’t looking to take your photos outside, she has the cutest studio in the Temecula/Murrieta area where she is currently taking reservations for more traditional shoots.

And this time of year, she makes space in her studio for Milk and Cookies Christmas photo sessions. Bring your children to the studio dressed in their matching Christmas jammies to take photos with all of her holiday props for a 20 minute mini session! She even has a special dedicated time coming up specifically for these holiday photos.
