Our Path To Photography

We’re a photography family with a varied background.

Cheryl grew up in the Palm Springs region and went to college on a music scholarship while majoring in business. While finishing her degree she did a study abroad program and fell in love with photography. After graduating, she moved to Santa Barbara, CA to study photography at the world-renowned Brooks Institute of Photography…

Tim grew up in small-town American believing life was a country song – thankfully he discovered photography while in high school. At first pursuing photo journalism, Tim battled the idea of racing mountain bikes professional before deciding to attend Brooks Institute of Photography where he met Cheryl.

Tim and Cheryl spent their first 6 years of marriage building their photography business in Santa Barbara before they realized that Northern California was calling their name and made the transition to Folsom before finally opening their portrait studio in El Dorado Hills.
