Robyn Kessler / Robyn Kessler Photograhy & Verité Photography
Robyn Kessler is a CCSF alumni specializing in photographing dogs and weddings. She says "I feel that this is what I was meant to do, for nothing is quite so thrilling as knowing that I preserved a moment of great meaning to somebody.  As I enter people's homes and they let me into their lives for an afternoon, sharing the stories and history of their furry companion, I am continually reminded that I have one of the greatest jobs in the world. It is such a treat to be able to catch these glimpses of devotion and friendship, each one unique, each one the cause of so much happiness in someone's life."

Tamara Trejo / Coastside Photography creates portrait art at Half Moon Bay beaches, as well as the magnificent architecture at Stanford University or the Enchanted Forest with its deep rich colors. The setting depends on where my subjects feel most comfortable so their true authentic selves will shine the brightest. As a people- and nature-loving artist, portrait photography is the perfect medium for me. I love my craft because it enriches the lives of my subjects and feeds my creative spirit. Even after 20 years, I still find each shoot intriguing and new. The Half Moon Bay landscape is constantly changing and my subjects always bring new energy to the photography session.
