Cielo Roth . Your Photographer
Cielo Roth Photography is based in Long Beach, California (Southern California)
I attended UC Santa Barbara and majored in studio art. I took my very first photography class my sophomore year and fell in love. I practically lived in the darkroom.
I loved taking photos of old buildings and my friends but didn't really have a focus. I took classes at Long Beach City College and learned a bit about lighting and portraiture. I finally entered the digital age a few years back but I still love film and miss the darkroom.
After our first daughter was born in 2005 and second in 2008, I looked no further for focus...I LOVE taking photographs of children and not just my own. I love when they cry, I love when they laugh, I love their discoveries and fascination and excitement with their worlds. That's what I capture best...a moment that will never exist again. It shows on their faces, their expressions and eyes.
I take candid portraits. I don't tend to pose my models. I like to photograph in natural light but I can break out my studio lighting also.
My husband Brian and I live in Long Beach with our two daughters (AKA Assistant 1 and Assistant 2) along with our kitty cats Scotty and Oscar. I love reading, yoga on the bluff cliffs on Ocean Blvd, and walking at the El Dorado Nature Center. My hair color changes often and so do my glasses.
