About Us

There are no words...

There are no words that can describe the feeling when a new mother sees a beautiful photograph of their child. A tear comes to their eye, and usually mine as well...and that is when I know I am doing what I was born to do.
I spent 16 years working in Child Care, and there is nothing like the smile of a child...my heart melts every time! I began taking photographs in my classroom and loved the expression on a parents face when I was able to present them with a photo that made them say "that's it, you have captured her spirit". I moved from child care, to pet care, and my photography followed me...presenting that same "that's it" feeling to pet parents!
Using the knowledge and experience I have gained over the years, combined with a passion for capturing the quickly passing moments of our lives...I am honored to present such treasured memories to my clients. I am dedicated to always learning and furthering my education- regularly attending workshops and participating in training to ensure the safety of my precious models. We are a member of  Member, Professional Photographers of America, Professional Photographers of America and are a fully registered and insured studio. We strive to maintain the highest level of quality and safety in everything we do...so you can rest assured that with Dulce Vida Studio, you are in the best of hands.

Why Custom Photography?

In this life, time passes so quickly...moments turn to minutes, hours into years...in this digital age, we quickly forget the importance of capturing those moments before they disappear. In an era when iPhones have replaced cameras...thumb drives have replaced printed photographs...I fear that we will have no tangible keepsakes to pass down to future generations. That breaks my heart, and the fact that you are reading this tells me you likely feel the same way.

The Ultimate Gift...

There are so many stories and values we pass on to our future generations...but a custom portrait, that once in a lifetime moment, is one of the most precious gifts you can give them...it's a glimpse into their past and creates a tangible artifact they will treasure as the years go by. Be a part of that portrait and you will also capture the legacy that made them who they are...
