Professional Portraits

My client Paul is a speaker and an insurance agent, and he needed to update his image for online professional websites, and speaking tours. To do this, we had a photo session to produce  professional headshots in our San Francisco portrait studio, as well as more casual portraits. Paul, after seeing the photographs, said: “The photos are amazing, I really like the way I look.”

Sonny and Cher

Having an appreciate for pop music, we paid honor to legends in the 60s and 70s in this family photography session. Sonny and Cher were icons forging the way as husband wife team.  I photographed these timeless portraits capturing the heart of this father and daughter and to the memory of Sonny and Cher.

Rita Hayworth

Reminiscing on the past, this portrait photography session continued along the path of a tribute to the famous stars of the 40s. There needed to be a change that happened in my studio in order to capture the essence of Rita Hayworth. Adding some color and a costume change we got back to photographing and capturing unique family portraits.

Rita Hayworth and her loyal companion. Everyone made it into this photography session even the dog. He was on his best behavior and right by Rita's side!

Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner

At this photography session the family wanted to capture the essence of the 40s and some of that era's legends. I captured this family's' portraits as they would have back in the day at my portrait studio in Noe Valley. Everything was working the wardrobe, make-up and posses. It is as if Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra came back in 2013.

Flashback to the 40's with leading actress, Ava Gardner! Once a classic always a classic

This father daughter portrait was a tribute to the classy 40s era and of course the leading couple Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra. Black and white photos, pearls and tuxedos you cant get any better than that!

Frank Sinatra at his best, sitting back and enjoying life!

Professional Headshots

Misty is my friend and a professional photographer and she needed executive headshots for her website.

Portrait Photosession

My friend Dan was retiring from the force and I did a retirement photo session as a gift to capture his years of service.

For this image, Dan wanted to be photographed in the area where he spent most of his time! But for this image I needed a police car...."No problem" He picked up his phone and in 2 minutes we had a police car for the shoot.

Wine walk in Noe Valley

Steven Restivo organized for the second time a wine walk around Noe Valley. This time Forrest came to our studio representing the winery Wattle Creek located in Sonoma and Mendocino. We really liked their pinot noir from Yorkville Highlands in Mendocino.

What a fun night :)

Karen and Bob with Andy, Jack and Timmy

When we did Bob and Karen's family photo session she was very happy with all the images except for the picture including all the family members. I guarantee my results so I told Karen we would reschedule for that one image at a different day. This time it was at the beach but when we got there the sun was pretty much gone. We rescheduled a third photo session and this time everything was perfect: The light, the kids, the waves, the sunset...  As you can see they look beautiful.
