hey there

I AM Jeanne-Louise Scout Starbuck Doron DeNatale

You, as well as anyone who knows me, just calls me Scout. I am an incredibly proud and dedicated mother to two beautiful little boys. My family and my passion for photography are the most inspiring elements of my life. Being born and raised in West Marin County instilled in me an undeniable love of the ocean, salty air, days on the beach, and most of all, a sense of appreciation for close knit communities.

about me

fun facts

A lifelong goal of mine has been to work in a career that allows me to help people. This aspiration led me to Chico State, where I received a degree in Sociology. Plans took an exciting and extra-adorable turn shortly after graduation; my dream to experience motherhood came true. Immediately after my first son’s birth, my photography became more valuable and essential than ever before. Time seemed to dart by and I desired to preserve as many moments as I could with my growing baby. Capturing precious images of my family helps me take in the present moment and cherish it forever. It is my wish to share this delight with others.

Brilliant lyrics, eloquent quotes, anything vintage, and true love influence me greatly. I consider myself an especially empathetic and compassionate person. That being said, I take pride in capturing genuine emotional connections, whether it be on your wedding day, your newborn’s first hours of life, or a seemingly ordinary day for a family portrait. 

about me

I'm named after the book, "To Kill a Mocking Bird", which I saw on Broadway in New York this past summer!

My family is my life. My drive to help people, and try to make the world a better place, runs a very close second.

I love bagels, coffee, detective/murder mystery tv shows, rap music, all things vintage and a good book- not necessarily in that order.

I am all about Equality.

Friendships mean the world to me.

I love to travel, especially when my itinerary includes Hawaii or Disneyland.

I absolutely love showing off pictures of my adorable kiddos and beautiful clients!


I offer a variety of portrait options for senior, maternity and newborn sessions. My portrait sessions are fun, natural and focused on you. I will be there with you, every step of the way, guiding through all of the poses and locations. We are surrounded by beauty at every turn and I love incorporating the environment into all of my images. Let's create something beautiful together!







is never wasted.

a life lived for art,
