John Garcia first saw the world through a camera's lens at age 11, but it wasn't until he had his own kids that he really became a prolific photographer. He snapped 10,000 photos of his tykes in their first year of life and realized he had a passion for preserving family memories. He decided to extend his services to other clans through J Garcia Photography. Along the way, he diversified his subjects, taking professional headshots for actors and businessfolk or snapping artsy memories for brides or expectant mothers. He also provides digitally retouched images and prints of his work to clients, allowing them to revisit a brief moment in time daily with a simple glance above the mantel.
