Eric and Troy


What a fantastic location shoot last week with Eric, Troy, Ruston, Reef and Inga!  Working backwards, Inga is the 1960 classic Volvo, Reef & Rustin are the two mischievous doggies and of course our two human subjects!


Everyone was a trooper dealing with 100 plus degrees for the shoot last week, especially since we went to 4 different locations.   The Volvo almost didn’t make it over the mountain to the beach, but I’m glad it did, since the images at the beach look amazing. 


Thanks guys for being fun and flexible under the “not so favorable” weather conditions.  Enjoy!


Ventura Engagement Session

"What a fantastic engagement session with Rei and Angie in lovely Ventura a few days ago.   The wind and chill in the air made the shoot challenging, but nothing your entourage comprised of parents, friends, stylist, photographer and little doggies couldn’t assist in conquering!  You were both troopers and the results are worth it.   Looking forward to sharing and capturing your special day in September."  



March Mini Sessions

We have been hard at work to bring you a totally new type of photography experience for your family… Introducing our brand new Mini Sessions!  Your family is growing and changing – and your photography needs are too.  We created this new way to capture memories for your hectic schedules and your busy lives.  


Select your package

You won’t need to block out an entire day to get portraits of your children done; you can save these moments in the time it takes you to watch a  movie! Bring your family in to the Cornerstone Photography studio in Moorpark any weekend in March and April for the Easter Mini Sessions. We have created special Easter sets in our spacious studio for your children’s pictures as well as a special introductory pricing structure for this initial offering.  You will have the option of two different backgrounds for the Mini Sessions: the Vintage and Spring sets.

We are so proud to bring you this new service for the spring season - call 805.529.3187 to make your appointment for this exciting opportunity!

Rolling Up Our Sleeves

BrookeWe have such an amazing creative team here at Cornerstone Photography!  We want to provide you with the best products that we can offer - truly one of a kind images and frames.  We put our creative effort and talents behind everything that gets to the customer, even if that means having to roll up our sleeves get our hands dirty!

Our hardworking Brooke is always looking for new ways to create unique solutions for our images... and for keeping herself paint free!  Here she is with a skirt made of plastic to protect her outfit from the paint she was applying to some frames.  We were transforming some standard frames into something truly amazing.  

We're constantly looking for ways to improve the products that we sell and trying to stay current with our designs.  Keep an eye out in 2014 for some bold new items, designs, and images!

TOHS visits Cornerstone

TOHS AP photo class had their annual field trip to our studio yesterday and as always we had a blast with them! 

Patrick taught them how to use Photoshop
Alyson taught Lightroom and Color Correcting your images
Sandy taught them tricks of working in a indoor studio and working with lights
Brian taught them outdoor lighting, off camera flash and using strobes. 

Here are a few photos from when they were here! 



Outfit Combinations for Family Photos

Every year we have dozens of adorable families come in for their family portraits at our studio.  A huge question we are constantly asked is "What do we wear!!". So this year we decided to put together a few samples of families that we feel have done a great job choosing their attire for you to see what we have in mind!


If you need any other help one of our favorite resources is our Pinterest which you can view HERE

Happy Holidays!! xoxo
