  • Well, hello! Welcome to fresh.simple.true.

    I'm a portrait photographer based in Long Beach and I love The Quirk in beings. I like capturing the funny faces, silly expressions and personal interactions that are like wonderful inside jokes to your family. Babies and dogs are my specialty; I love them individually, but when you put them together...bam! Awesomeness happens.

    My clients like portraits that show who they are, not just what they look like. They want the important stages of their lives documented, but in an honest, genuine way. No soft focus for them; no awkward family poses and definitely no matching turtlenecks.

    This site is a combination of my portfolio and blog. Blog posts are right below this introduction, and links to my portfolio work are directly above. I love to blog, but honestly, I'm on Facebook probably more than I should be, so find me there and say hello.

    I donate my time & art to many nonprofits. Rescue work is close to my heart and I offer session discounts for those with rescued/shelter animals and also senior or terminally ill animals.

    I'm a big fan of community. I make my artwork available to nonprofit fundraisers at no cost; if you have an event coming up and would like to auction some of my work, don't hesitate to drop me a line and let me know what you've got going on.

So Much Life!

I was supposed to post Part II (and frankly, the part that makes sense) of the story behind the photo I posted on Facebook yesterday (the “what’s up with me” story), but I got a new film camera yesterday (a gift from Mr. Susan) and we all know what happens when that happens. The first, […]

susan sabo - Mouse has completely melted our hearts, all of us, even T’s! They’re definitely a pack of 3 now. *swoon*

scribblegurl - The vatos look so ridiculously happy and adorable in the bottom one, while Mouse looks very dignified and like a little queen. Love it. :) And the top two? I’m melting. :)

Nuala - Your dogs are so gorgeous – and they are so lucky to have you.

susan sabo - Ha, I was calling her a Vata, but it just doesn’t fit. She’s known around here as “la princesa.” :)

Thank you, Nuala. I feel so so lucky to have them!

9 Simple Things I Love About my Dogs

Some time ago (an embarrassingly long time ago, actually), the nice people at Purina One Beyond send me a big package. Actually, the package was for my dogs. It contained a small bag of their Purina One Beyond dog food, and some treats (toys, a leash, a new bowl!) for them to try. They asked […]
