We love the city we photograph, Simi Valley!

Strathern Historical Park – Simi Valley, CA

We love the city we serve, Simi Valley! Our “little” town has so much to offer yet is quaint and peaceful at the same time. If you live here, you know how it goes, you don’t go over the hill for much; in either direction. If you don’t live here, well, we’re literally in a valley surrounded by the Santa Monica Mountains with Ventura to the West, San Fernando Valley to the East, the Santa Clarita Valley to the north and the Conejo Valley to the South. We have mountains and snow and the beach with beautiful weather all within an hours drive, just depending on the direction you go. While that’s all great, and we love it, we have a lot going on right in our own city. 


We are a community…we come together and worship at church, we dine at many of our locally owned eateries, and we have an outdoor mall that’s struggling like most cities. For the family we have local movie and live theaters, bowling, many parks with ducks, fishing, basketball, bocci ball, pickle ball and more, and we have numerous hiking trails. Almost every lifestyle can be supported by our community from the health conscience to the wealthy and everyone in between.


Personally, our family is involved in many local sports leagues including baseball and basketball and school clubs like video club and mock trial. Each of our kids is so different that we’re always on the go doing something together as a family.


When it comes to photography our little town has so much to offer. We love shooting at the local parks and historic sites the most. We especially love our little train museum. We’re waiting for that unique client who will allow us to shoot them at our local shopping complex where we have some modern pillars and vine covered tops that would make a beautiful backdrop for almost any photo session. We also have some gorgeous landscapes in town that have afforded us some amazing finished art pieces.


There’s much to do and see here in Simi Valley, if you’re not a local, we hope you come visit. If you are a local, we hope you check out our website at www.SQPortraits.com and book a consultation for a photo session and allow us to capture your moments!
