Hi everybody! Meet the Sullivan family! The Sullivan family has been a long time client of mine (well before the kids were born) and I always look forward to seeing them and photographing them whenever I can. They always give me creative freedom when taking their portraits and they are a lot of fun and so cool! During this photo session, we met at a coffee shop, then spent part of the morning casually walking around downtown near the new library building in San Diego, CA. Here are just some of my favorites from their photo session. Enjoy!

I specialize in environmental portraiture and the use of natural light. What is that you ask? Well, here is how it works. You pick a location... it could be someplace fun like the beach, lagoon or a park. It could be downtown, with an urban setting. All are great locations. It can also be a special family spot... don't be afraid to think outside the box. You can wear fall clothing colors or just something nice and casual that you feel comfortable in.
The Fall Portrait Session can be used by individuals, couples, kids or families of up to 4 people. Additional people and/or pets are $25 each. Weekday photo sessions are available as well as weekends, but they always fill up fast, so schedule today!

Hi everyone! Meet the Dehner family. I just love this family! I was so honored to photograph them while they were visiting from out of town. The little one got to experience the beach for the first time. She loved it. Even Auntie Mia got into the act and joined in on the photos. The photo shoot was a lot of fun and the time seemed to just fly by. Here are just some of my favorite images from their portrait session. Enjoy!
Hi everybody! Meet the Cundari family! The Cundari family has been a long time client of mine and every year I have the honor of taking their family portraits. I've watched these kids grow over the years. This was a special photo session because their grandmother (aka Nana) was in town visiting for the holidays. Here are just some of my favorites from their photo session. Enjoy!
Hi everyone! Meet the Wren family. I received a call for a last minute portrait session at the La Jolla Country Club as the family was visiting from out of state and had to catch a flight the next day. I am glad I was available that day for them. This time though for the portrait session, it was going to be the grandmother and grandchild only. But, we were having so much fun that the mom decided to join in too. Here are just some of my favorite images from their portrait session. Enjoy!
The year was
1996, Bill Clinton was in office and the hit song, Macarena by Los del Rio was
dominating the airwaves.
Photographer Kelly Fitzgerald was first introduced to drag queens while
working as a part-time bartender at a local gay nightclub in San Diego. He was captivated by their
larger-than-life personalities. Every Friday night they would perform as Cher,
Barbra Streisand, Tina Turner and other legendary female vocalists. The 1990’s
was an experimental time and drag queens were far from commonplace.
Self-expression, performing and entertaining were all means of self-exploration
as well as mediums to make cultural statements.
Within a three
month time period, Kelly photographed drag queens in San Diego and traveled to
San Francisco to photograph Wigstock, an annual outdoor drag festival that
traditionally acted as an unofficial end to summer for the gay community. The iconic and groundbreaking
photographs Kelly captured show the essence of his subjects; creative, larger
than life individuals who were not afraid to show their feminine sides and
flamboyant spirit. These queens were pioneers in their own right, trail blazers
at a time when their style and fashion wasn’t fully accepted or understood.
Fitzgerald is an
adventurer and fine art photographer who has spent years traveling the world
with little more than a backpack and camera gear. He is a landscape specialist
who has been interpreting culture and the environment for over 30 years. He uses tools such as manual film
cameras, black-and-white film and the traditional darkroom to create his silver
gelatin fiber base prints.
have been in numerous exhibits throughout the United States and Europe. Fitzgerald's work has also won several
awards including The Golden Light Award and the IPA Lucie Award. He was honored at The Hubbard Museum in
Association with The Smithsonian Institution in 2003, and was the first
photographer to receive the Gene Harrison Memorial Award in November of 2003. His
work can be found in many corporate and private collections across the United
States. Kelly is based out of California and Hawaii and travels several months
each year to pursue his art.
