High-Quality Lifestyle Photography and portraiture

Creating a lifetime of precious memories

Our Story



As you can see we are goofballs and we love to make people laugh!  We have a really fun time when we are doing your portrait sessions. What a great life it is when we smile and fill your days with lots of love and laughter.......When you receive your portraits you will see the essence of love, joy and the way your life truly is.

When we photograph people, we search for the human aspect-those spontaneous, intimate, vulnerable moments that define a person's essence or tell a story. It's those moments that capture our passion and make our clients happy with their portraits.

Over the years,  we have personally photographed over 4000 plus clients throughout the Southern California and Eastern Sierra areas. We have lived in this valley for over 25 years. We left for a few years but could not stand the hustle and bustle of the city so we moved back permanently.  We adore the outdoors and the quiet our valley has to offer with so much open space and beautiful God made backgrounds.

We do some posed portraits but we also love to do documentary style or whatever you, our client, asks us to do.   Your portraits are created with love, care, creativity and above all, fun.

We are running a fabulous summer special right now. For only $75.00 you will receive your session, over 50 mostly color portraits.  We offer black and white  at no extra charge. All are print ready. The session will last about an hour and a half. Your portraits are sized and ready to share on all of your social media. Please call John or Mariette and reserve your time and date. Also ask about our fun portrait parties. If you refer a friend, you will receive one free 8 X 10 wall portrait as a thank you gift.. Looking forward to serving all your portrait needs. 

Please call the studio about our wedding packages/pricing.
