About the Artists

Our Studio

We started Blue Moon Photography in 1994 in our home studio in central Orange County. From the very beginning it was important to us that every one of our images be outstanding, and the service we provide to each of our clients, exceptional!

We are often asked why we chose the name Blue Moon Photography for our studio. Well, it’s because it evokes the idea of life's rare moments - something that comes along only once in a blue moon. It’s like sitting on the beach with someone you love and sharing the most amazing sunset you’ve ever seen. Or watching a smile start to form and the eyes begin to twinkle when someone is sharing a beautiful life changing moment. It takes an artist's eye to recognize when one of those moments is unfolding... and to record those fleeting moments in an artistic way. That's what we hope to do for each client - document genuine moments of beauty and emotion.

We are passionate about our art, our work, and our relationship. Together, we bring our unique and outstanding talents to each and and every job we do. Our clients really benefit the way we blend and share our talents with each other. They are actually commissioning two artists. It is not very often you find two people, both photographers and digital artists, that work in harmony. Each image is truly a collaborative work.

Charlie

"When I was young I loved taking pictures. But it wasn't until college that I was able to really explore the medium. Then it became a passion and lives inside of me today!"

"For me, photography isn't a job, it's an art form. And I like to involve my clients in the fun of the artistic process too. Nothing is more fulfilling than to finish a portrait session knowing we've created some great images that will bring wonderful memories and smiles to my clients and their families for years to come. And when they have fun and take part in the creative process too, then I know the images will be even more special."

"Part of the excitement I feel for photography is the enjoyment I get from working with people. That's also one reason we chose to have an in-residence studio. We want people to feel relaxed and at ease - as though they're dealing with friends."

"One of my other creative outlets can be found in the kitchen. It's kind of like photography, but instead of working with light and shadow, shape, and form, I'm creating with flavors, smells, taste and texture."

Bev

Bev is an accomplished artist and began selling her paintings in galleries at age 15. She enthusiastically talks about her art:

"I spend a lot of time as a child drawing and painting and frequently I got scolded in class for doodling. But eventually the practice paid off with a sill I enjoy immensely."

"My background in watercolor and oil painting has provided me with experience, and it enables me to paint with pixels as well as a brush. Digital photography provides a great opportunity for artists and the new technology gives us tools to take images to a new level of creativity. I really enjoy the process of refining and manipulating images to create beautiful works of photographic art."

"Many people in family were writers, artists, photographers and creative people. We learned from each other and shared things we enjoyed. And because family is so important to me, I understand what a treasure a family's photographs are. I really feel privileged to be able to create images that will become part of a family's heritage for the next generation."
