Founded in September of 2015, Zoetic Photography is the premier newborn, maternity, and family photography team of San Diego. Based in north county San Diego with a home studio in San Marcos, California, Zoetic Photography has been serving San Diego County families for almost 10 years now!

Zoetic Photography consists of the husband and wife team: Chad & Lindsey Tuthill. Chad is the primary photographer of Zoetic. His background has humble beginnings as the photographer for his high school newspaper, where he learned the basics in the darkroom. Lindsey has been a photographer for over 15 years and she serves as the stylist and creative director of Zoetic. Having grown up with a darkroom in the house, Lindsey learned the art of photography from her father who passed on his lifelong interest in capturing and displaying beauty. Both Chad and Lindsey have trained extensively in the technical aspects of photography and retouching, with extra training in newborn posing and safety. Whether it's on-site in nature or working from their home studio, Zoetic Photography creates timeless, classic newborn, maternity, baby, and family photographs that will be worthy of wall space in your home and cherished for generations to come.

Logo origins:

The brushstroked “o” in the Zoetic Photography logo represents the Japanese ensō, which is a circle that is hand drawn in one movement to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. It symbolizes endlessness and the state of mind at the moment of creation.
