SAY HELLO TO THE PERSON BEHIND THE LENS

Family photographer in the Western Gulf Coast.

Hey, I’m Tom Ortega, a full-time photographer, husband, and dad of one wonderful girl. I'm an adventurer & lifestyle photographer based on the western Gulf Coast in SouthTexas. I love capturing the essence of what I like to call "LifeStyle Candid Photography".

This means you get to be yourself & have those intimate and dorky moments as I focus my eye on the viewfinder to capture your emotions one frame at a time. I like to see it like I'm capturing history, your history!

Loved Every Minute Of Our Session. Tom Has So Much Patience, He Helped Us Achieve More Than What We Envisioned. I Like The Fact That He Has A Young, Modern POV. Our Friends And Family Kept Saying How The Pictures Are Unique And One Of A Kind, Compared To Other Photographers In The Area. I Recommend 10/10!!

EVERYONE TAKES PHOTOS WITH THEIR PHONE. HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL.

Why hire a family photographer?

Why pay for a professional photographer when you can take as many photos and record as many videos as you want, with your phone, right? Not quite. While phone snaps are wonderful memoirs to mundane happy moments, they don’t include one important element - YOU. You are not in the picture, having fun with your lovely family. A professional photographer can capture your family’s legacy as a whole. It’s photos that you’ll want to print and hang all around your house.
