Preserving family histories for generations to come is my passion. My family portraits are all about relationships, capturing that special moment. At Pepito MasterPiece Portraits you get to choose what ‘family’ means for you and I receive the gift of portraying your family as a work of art.


The Weinstein’s are one such family who enjoyed the Pepito MasterPiece Portrait experience which included their daughter who was 9 years old at the time.  The following year their daughter a student at the Patel Conservatory Center for the Performing Arts’ was selected to share the stage with ex-Floyd front man Roger Waters who brought the album to the St. Pete Times Forum.

Now, I realize that Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” released in 1979, is one of the biggest selling albums of all time, but that doesn’t mean much if you were born 15 or more years later, as was their daughter, however, here is a picture of their daughter as she points out and sings with her fellow classmates at the Patel Conservatory along with the famous line — “Hey! Teacher! Leave them kids alone!” — of the Pink Floyd song Another Brick in the Wall

I believe that whatever you give out you get back that is why I strongly believe in making contributions to the community. For the past several years I have taken portraits of children who have been diagnosed with life threatening illnesses and referred by Pediatric Cancer Foundation and given a 10 x 10 framed shelf portrait of the child at no cost to the family.  This year with the help of many friends, I have founded ‘Pepito’s Faces of Hope’ a (501.c3) non-profit organization.

On Wednesday, February 29th, 2012 at Fashion Funds the Cure, hosted by Neiman Marcus and Mercedes-Benz.  This is not your average fashion show says Celebrity host Carson Kressley,  it is a celebration of incomparable strength and courage as girls battling cancer make their debut on the runway.  Guests will enjoy fine wines, delicacies from top area restaurants, and private shopping throughout the evening.

At Fashion Funds the Cure, I will have the opportunity to present each with a 20 x 20 heirloom canvas wall portrait the gift of a life-time to the girls and their family.  A Pepito Masterpiece Portrait is a work of art created with the expectation that it will be handed down from generation to generation.
