Hi there! I’m Daniel Doty!

I’m a South Bay Los Angeles native along with my wife Rebecca and German Shepherd-Husky Jordan. 

And I live and breathe portraiture!

Your portraits and portraits of your loved ones are more important now than they have ever been before.

iPhones and the internet have made it effortless to capture your life and immediately upload it to Facebook and Instagram. 

In an effort to preserve all of our important moments and life events, we record everything and take 1000s of pictures and dump them onto social media. Only to never look at them again. 

We have lost the ability to decide what is really important in our lives.  

When everything is considered memorable and important, nothing ends up being important or memorable. All of your precious life moments fade into an infinitely scrolling timeline, on a website made by a company which makes money off of advertising to you.

It’s like we’ve gone to Coffee Bean and claim that everything on the menu is our absolute favorite. We love everything so much that we end up not buying anything at all, or worse buying everything and watching it all go bad because we can’t decide which one of our favorites we want to have first. 

If everything is our absolute most favorite, nothing is.

To save ourselves we must return to Portraiture. 

Through Portraiture, you create truly memorable family heirlooms.

Portraiture is an experience, and portraits exist to prove your existence and to capture what your life is like, what is important to you and who you are as a person as you existed on this earth.  

You deserve to have your portrait taken and turned into an heirloom, a physical memory that will outlast you. 

You deserve to have your children, your grandchildren, and your great-grandchildren look at your portrait and know you and your family. 

Imagine your great, great granddaughter holding your portrait and saying to herself, 

“So that’s where I got my hair from!” 

“I smile and laugh just like her!” 

“If she can do it, so can I”

It is my passion and my mission to capture portraits of people and their families, which certainly includes you. And the time to get your portrait is now, not “later” or “sometime soon”

You are beautiful as you are right at this moment, your family is beautiful as they are right at this moment and you deserve to have your portrait taken now. It is an experience that you’ll fall in love with and you’ll be saying… 

“I can’t believe I didn’t do this earlier.”

Never forget that you are important, you are special, and there will never be someone like you or a family like your family in the world ever again, so celebrate yourself with us.
