Your instructors Sarah and Andrea have combined photography experience of over 24 years.  They are the perfect balance of styles as one is a Dog Person and one is a Cat Person, but also because Sarah is a very technically correct photographer and Andrea an artistic photographer....



 Sarah Torres of Little B Photography is an expert in child photography (and taking random photos of her cat).  She has worked with major Casting Agencies, Lifetouch, and as a Freelance for over 11 years.  Sarah is an expert on technically correct photography, producing tack sharp, wonderfully composed images all while wrangling her child models, which she dubs her “cute little nuggets”.  She never ceases to amaze parents and agents alike with her ability to capture a child’s essence and personality.


Andrea Silva of Cloverfield Photography and the owner of The Folsom Photo Studio is an award-winning Wedding and Portrait Photographer.  Her images lean toward the artistic side, always utilizing light in the most advantageous and dramatic way possible.   She has been a professional photographer for over 13 years, photographing over 350 weddings.  She also specializes in sultry burlesque style Boudoir Photography creating “The Folsom Boudoir Experience” which she affectionately dubs the “Nudie Boudie” sessions.   She has been giving private photography lessons at the Studio for two years and has now developed a class style course that explains photography in very approachable terms.
