Art in the Everyday of Life

Jordi Camps is the guest artist for July at Carolyn Huff Photography Studio and Gallery. Jordi says his interest in art began when he was a kid. He enjoyed playing with colored pencils and doing things with his hands. That has not changed throughout the years. Everything he paints comes from his everyday life. The things he learns, the people he meets, and the places he visits all inspire him.

When Later Doesn't Happen

When Later Doesn’t Happen
Sometimes, it’s okay to put off doing something important.  Most of the time, however, this is not a good plan. It’s often that way with portraits.  Soon, those precious moments are gone and the time to create a portrait of that period in your life is also gone, never to return. Creating a portrait of your family, you as a couple, or just of yourself is an investment that you make in your future.  At Carolyn Huff Photography, our desire is to create art work with you that you and your family will treasure for years to come.  We offer a complimentary consultation to all new clients. You may reach us at 209-918-6627.
