Loved Ones. A Portrait Sitting | Contemporary Studio Photography in So SF


There is nothing more precious to your Legacy than fine art portraits of your Family and Loved Ones.

Spring Greetings from our Contemporary Portrait Studio…
Hello, Gorgeous!

As I’ve said before, we must all #ExistinPhotos to tangibly exist to our Loved Ones.

Portraits displayed in our homes, businesses or workplace show the world the value you place on your Loved Ones. And, whilst you are showing the world that you value your family, they notice too, and feel valued themselves. Seeing a portrait of themselves on your desk sends a quiet affirmation to those you care for that you wish for them to be with you, always.

Recently I had the pleasure of photographing a busy urban family in a Mini-Session that we designed specifically for this gorgeous working couple.  They wanted traditional style headshots as well as family portraits, an ambitious as well as handsome family!

We paired down the Mini-Session to just two sets & backgrounds — one for their headshots and our faux window light set for their family portraits.

In excited fashion we set to work quickly in the the studio to create both Mum & Dad’s new business portraits. We then finished up with a fabulous round of portraits including all of the Loved Ones to make up the Folio Mum dreamed of.

Folio Boxes — The Most Bang for the Buck

Sweet Light Studios Folio Box Portrait CollectionsThe Folio Boxes I offer are a good value for yourself or your favorite people. Inside an Authentic Artists Black Folio Box  you’ll find six, ten or twenty of your favorite selections.  Each print is lovingly retouched, hand mounted into Archival Mattes and ready to frame.

You can keep your folio private, on a shelf or in a drawer, assured that the box and contents are of high archival quality, heirlooms.  Or, hang and share the prints enclosed, reusing the archival box as a keepsake for other prints, portraits or mementos.

Some of my clients mention that they bring different portraits out for different seasons, reserving the balance in the Folio for safe keeping.  Whatever your motivations or intentions, know that we support your decision to build your legacy through heirloom portraits via keepsake folio collections.

BTW — Folio boxes can be personalized at your request.  Always remember, everything purchased from Sweet Light Studios comes with matching digital files!

But, Wait!  There’s more!

Don’t you love how kids always save the best for last? 
After the session was done, whilst Mum & Dad were packing up and tending to brother, I felt a little hand in mine…
“Could I have another picture made? Like Mummy & Daddy had? Please?”

Well, how could I possibly resist those magnificent brown eyes?
They grow up so fast …



are our legacy.
Our responsibility.
They are our destiny and we are theirs.
The extent to which we fail as parents, we fail as God’s children.
