"Only Photograph What You Love"

Tim walker

Hi, I am Stephen Morga.

I am a freelance lifestyle photographer, a Salinas native, born and raised under the California sun. I’ve come to call San Juan Bautista home and fell in love with the small town atmosphere and countryside.

I enjoy taking pictures and capturing the beauty of nature alongside friends and family with my camera. It was then when I decided to chase my new dream to start a photography career. It wasn’t until 5 years later, in 2019, that I achieved my first milestone, when I was honored and exhibited my very first gallery in Melbourne Australia. Since then I have been exhibited in over 10 worldwide galleries including one gallery in Los Angeles, California, and featured in two online magazines.

What I love about photography is being able to enjoy a still moment of life. Life is constantly changing, always ebbing and flowing like a river, never motionless, that in itself is a challenge for any photographer. That challenge is what I love to capture. These little moments of still life, where time remains quiet, where nature and life find its breath and exhales a masterpiece. It’s that same energy that I strive to capture with my clients so they can feel that energy when they look back on their album.


We have had our maternity shoot, as well our family shoot done and both experiences have been wonderful. We had our dog and toddler running around and those are the pictures we love the most. Capturing who we are as a family just, being ourselves, definitely worth it.
