Your personality, our portraits
Portraits are about legacy. For families, they record the milestones life brings your way. For individuals, they embrace who you are at this moment and eventually they will show who you were.
Portraits are an amazing way to mark another year of family life thrived. For high school and college seniors, they are a great way to differentiate yourself from your classmates in the year book. For single people, they can be the foundation of new relationship formed online.
Authentic connection is our approach to personal portraits. It’s the private self, the looks with a million meanings and the candor of laughter that we are are attempting to capture. To accomplish this, we blend traditional portraiture with candid and even theatrical techniques.
William captured the essence of how my child is: happy, playful, curious, loving…ALL of that was captured in every single photo. As a mom, I will be forever grateful to treasure these memories in photos.Cindy

We had a multi-generational photo sessions with 7 people ranging in age from 3 months to 88 years old and he was so great and patient with everyone. He managed to really capture the personality of each person and I can’t believe how many amazing photos we got in just an hourDana
We’ve used Petruzzo Photography for multiple occasions and have been beyond satisfied with each of our experiences. My husband and I recently did a photo shoot with Felipe Sanchez of Petruzzo Photography, our third photo shoot with him. As always, Felipe brought a level of professionalism, humor, and talent that is unmatched by others.Emily
