Upon Caroline's retirement in 2010, Kevin became the studio's owner and head photographer.
Over the past thirty years, he has photographed for thousands of local families and for wide and varied range of local and national companies.

He has won numerous awards and the studio has been chosen as a "Best of San Joaquin" winner over twenty times.
"Whether it is a storytelling portrait of a family or eye catching images for a business, I have a passion for creating the highest quality images that are uniquely designed for each individual client.”
Tracy Richtik - Owner and Head Assistant
Studio co-owner and head "children's smile" developer Tracy Richtik, is a huge part of what we do at the studio. Especially in the behind the scenes areas! Tracy's background is in office administration ranging from her time in the US Army's Judge Advocate General's office, to Bank of America's executive offices to Quail Lakes Baptist Church as the senior pastor's administrative assistant for the past seventeen years.
Over the years, Tracy has found that she loves working with children to get wonderful expressions during a photo session. Using an array of puppets, noise makers and playful expressions, she can coax a smile from the most apprehensive child...and parent too!
"I think my very first job as a dental assistant has enabled me to be able to help children to feel comfortable during a photography session. Just like a visit to the dentist, a session can feel a little scary for them and helping to bring a smile to their face is very gratifying.”
