Meet Candice and John Jackson


I love classic portraiture. It is where I first started as a portrait artist. It makes my day when I have the opportunity to create beautiful paintings for my clients. So, when Candace Jackson commissioned us to create a portrait of she and her husband John with their beautiful young grandchildren, I was really excited. Their painted portrait reflects timeless beauty and elegance.

A few weeks ago, Candace invited April to attend the Union Rescue Mission's Hearts for Hope Fashion Show and Luncheon. April's really excited to attend. Like Candice, she shares a compassion for the thousands of homeless men, women and children who need help - both practically and spiritually.

Meet the Hartmans


"I'm so blessed to have such a talented photographer for a dad. One of my favorite things about him is that he's always experimenting with me on his new ideas. Most recently he took my husband Andrew and our daughter Emma to Balboa Island for a shoot just before our son was born. We love that it captures energy and happiness and it looks great in our more contemporary home!"

portrait Our portrait is just awesome. Mark captured each of us perfectly and the unique, fun surroundings is so playful. The color is perfect. We had a large print framed and hung in our living room where it just shines. Our company is seriously lost for words when then see it. It's fun to watch. Thank you!!!!

portrait We wanted to express our gratitude for the work you did on our family portrait. You went above and beyond framing the portrait in our antique frame and we are so proud. We will sing your praise as we share our pictures with our family and friends.

portrait We had a wonderful experience with Mark as he photographed our daughter. His patience with our 1-year old was remarkable, and the pictures turned out beautifully. We are so grateful to have memories that capture this stage of her life so perfectly. Thank you Mark!.
