Welcome to Moonhaven Studios!

My name is Esmeralda Ortega, but I normally go by 'Es' or 'Esme'. I am blessed to be based in Menifee, CA working out of my ranch where I keep a variety of critters, some to be included in my photography.

I am a mom of two girls who keep my time outside of photographing pretty busy but I wouldn't have it any other way. I believe it makes me a better photographer because I love to take advantage of natural lifestyle poses. I offer a variety of photograph sessions to include newborn, family, pet, portraiture, engagement, wedding, end of life and everything in between that tell your story. Because selfies and phone pics are only a fraction of your life, I would love to cover those memorable connections that you just can't get with a selfie.

In addition to lifestyle photography, I offer personal branding photography to help you either get on solid ground or stay on solid ground with your business. I personally know how challenging growing a business can be and I want to assist you in becoming or staying successful.

I'm excited to hear from you and look forward to a one on one consultation to go over your vision for your photography needs.
