Our Passion For Fine Art

Our passion for art started as we both were attending the World Renowned Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California where we both studied photography and portraiture under some of the greatest artists in both the analog and digital realms.

We started our portrait studio in Santa Barbara in 2005 and moved to Northern California in 2012. We have always had a connection to the art of the portrait, and Cheryl loved her time studying abroad and visiting and studying museums featuring the masters of portrait artwork in Italy.

Portraits elevated themselves to another level for us personally when Our baby girl Abigail was born and shortly after that diagnosed with Craniosynostosis. The portrait Cheryl created of our baby girl during this time has created a connection and bond in our home that was unimaginable and we love being able to help create museum quality pieces of our for other families to help bring that connection into their own home.

We’re humbled to have been commissioned to create artwork with so many families, as well as being commissioned to photograph numerous celebrities: 

Jack Black, Charles Barkley, Greg Olsen, Reggie Miller, Thomas Keller, Kenny Loggins, Ray Bradbury, Ray Charles, Kenny and Gwendolyn Smith, Billy Baldwin, Andrew Firestone, Giada De Laurentiis, Wolfgang Puck, Motley Crue, Jethro Tull, The Scorpions, and a number of others we’re not allowed to mention (NDA’s are fun huh???)
