After mastering her photographic skills by capturing images of her own family for five years, Colette Grina decided to focus her lens on the general public. At Beautiful Contrasts Photography, she snaps portraits of families, weddings, kids, newborns, and expectant moms. Wielding a store of props such as hats and swaddle wraps, subjects strike poses during on-location sessions, which Colette holds at Monterey’s scenic parks and beaches. She relies entirely on natural light to illumine her subjects in every photo, preserving high-resolution images on CDs and in print form.
More than 20 years of photography experience grants PhotoArts Marin's Glen Graves more than just an eye for an ideal snapshot. His skill with traditional film cameras, lighting, and composition elements imbues his photos with a quality that has drawn the attention of such clients as Ford, US Air, and Architectural Digest. When not capturing boudoir portraits or smiling families during photo shoots, Glen can be found in the classroom teaching aspiring photographers the tricks of the trade, from using dynamic angles to frame a subject to how saying “cheese” banishes spirits intent on photobombing.

When she graduated with a degree in photojournalism nearly two decades ago, Kendra Stone-Hinds wanted her pictures to tell a story—not in newspapers, but in family photo albums and frames. For her, it’s a gift to snap wedding photos, chronicle pregnancy’s curves, capture a family’s growth, and beyond—she gets to be a part of the journey and help her subjects to remember each step.
Kendra’s images capture energetic moments, unique viewpoints, and striking contrasts. A versatile shutter snapper, she fills her portfolio with vibrant shots of weddings, expectant moms, and babies.
