"The Beach Photographer"

Carlsbad Family Sunset session by Jeff Kassebaum Photography


We are located in coastal North San Diego County, in the quaint little village of Carlsbad, which incidentally places our studio only minutes from the beach. This is the perfect place for those memorable, seaside photo opportunities. Jeff is locally well-known as "The Beach Photographer."

Typical fun family session  in Carlsbad


There's something special about the beach. Southern Californians and Carlsbad locals will attest to this. The expansive ocean views that go for miles, and the sandy beaches on the water's edge give visitors and anyone coming to the beach a reason to smile. Jeff Kassebaum saw this decades ago and has perfected his skills in capturing beautiful smiles, precious family moments, and the general "glow" that is visible on every face at the beach.


Would you like to create a unique and different family memory while on the beach? Kassebaum Photography can accommodate by bringing you to the best beach locations in the area. What to wear? What time of day? We've got it all wired. Schedule a photo shoot with "The Beach Photographer..." contact us, now!

Jeff strives for portraits that are works of art, worthy of hanging in a gallery as well as in your own home. "I pride myself in capturing the personality of the person I am photographing. It is important for me to take the time to establish a rapport, to get my subjects to relax and to feel comfortable, then the smiles come naturally."
