Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
We are a portrait studio – offering both indoor studio and outdoor photography sessions in one location – skilled in everything, from babies to commercial photography. We’re located on an acre in Orangevale, so it’s like having our own park.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
We’ve used our Santa portrait events as a fundraiser for children in need. It started off many years ago as a one-weekend event and has grown to several weekends during the holidays. Over the years, we’ve raised at least $50,000 for children. Folsom’s Play for All Playground has been one of our biggest projects; I was recently told that we’ve donated more than $14,000 to the playground. Given that my clients are often families, we have the pleasure of meeting them when they’re first married, then we get to meet their first baby, and continue to serve them throughout their lives. I love watching the kids and families grow. Since I’ve been in business for more than 23 years, I’m in the second generation of some of my families (photographed them as children and am now photographing their children).
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Edger Allen Poe – he was such a dark writer, but so creative. I would try to talk him into lighter, happier stories.
What’s your favorite local business other than your own?
Starlight Starbright – their love for children is equal to mine!
And finally, customer service is…?
Always giving 100 percent to every step you take with a client. Without them, I would not be here. Once I’ve photographed a client, I consider myself to be their family historian. It is a precious honor.
Do you know that our editorial is not paid for, nor can it be purchased? In fact, our Introducing and Dine reviews are not paid advertisements. If you’d like your business profiled, please email Wendy Sipple at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we determine when your business will be featured, we will contact you to schedule a time to come out and take a photograph. Thank you!
