Last year we had the pleasure of watching our two children participate in a magical visit with Santa which was photographed beautifully by Thuan. The portraits taken highlighted the excitement they experienced - the pure joy of meeting Santa and exploring the interactive set. He was able to draw out the personalities of each child and capture the tender moments as they talked with Santa. The set was absolutely stunning, with little details so perfect. Thuan has great patience and an artist’s eye to capture those brief moments in photographs that will allow you to relive the magic of that time over and over. We loved every photograph and are looking forward to having him record another day in our little family’s journey. More...

I have known Thuan for a few years now and worked with him on several occasions for PR shots. He is extremely communicative and eager to understand what kind of look you’re after. He has a fantastic eye and incredible use of lighting. Super easy to work with and lovely guy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for clean, classy, artistic and unique photos.

Thuan was so responsive and on time for my daughter's shoot. My daughter had a sport photo shoot and even though he did not play the sport she plays, Thuan had a natural eye that captured the exact moments that would highlight skill, form, and beauty. I definitely recommend him for ANY photo shoot! He obviously took lovely shots of my daughter sitting still as well, but I'm most impressed at how well the photos came out of her in action! He is patient and puts people at ease immediately, making a photo shoot so enjoyable! More...

Thuan, Thuan, Thuan… nicest guy ever! And creative to boot.

Thuan Ton of Portrart Creations has shot twice now our annual Fall Fashion Show Dinner. He has a way of making all models and attendees feel at ease. Thuan has a prompt turnaround because he makes beautiful images a priority and he is passionate about his craft. He’ll even beat himself up if a shot isn’t perfect - that’s humility and a strive towards perfection. Feel free to contact us at (760) 434-1140 if you ever want to hear us rave more about Thuan and his photography.

Our family had an amazing visit with Santa this year, thanks to Thuan! He was extremely professional, patient, and understanding as our two small boys ran around the set. The pictures came out fantastic, and our boys had lots of smiles and laughs with Santa, instead of the tears we have had in the past. Thank you, Thuan, for a memorable holiday experience! We hope to see you next year! More...

I wanted to get Santa photos for our daughter's first Christmas but something more than the mall Santa. Portrart Creations did not disappoint with their Santa Experience. Thuan was professional and patient with our 5 month old. They were prepared to grab her attention and she loved the jingle bells. He accommodated our request to have shots using a personalized ornament. Many image concepts were taken, it's difficult to choose a favorite. I would definitely recommend Portart Creations and will use again. More...


The secret to taking a great photograph is being able to bring out the subject's personality. Connecting with people so that they can let down their guard for a brief moment to capture the image is key to a great photo. Of course a photographer should know how to use lighting to bring out the depth of the personality they are photographing,

We ask you WHY you want to be photograph. Is it to celebrate something special in your life that is occurring now? Do you simply need images for work? These questions are the starting point of your experience in being professionally photographed.

Here at PortrArt Creations, we make it our mission to find and capture your inner beauty. We focus on telling your story and creating fine-art as a final product to showcase your moment in time, to memorialize your special event, and to celebrate a glimpse in your timeline in which you and your family can cherish as you journey through your adventures together. We achieve this by keeping it real with simple and fun photo sessions. The experience in having portraits taken by a professional is rare for many of us, so the imagery we strive for is the reflection of the Inner Beauty in all of us. It is with purpose that fine-art photography be the medium in which we use to celebrate you and your family’s uniqueness and have a tangible heirloom that you can pass on to future generations.

We love meeting different people of all shapes & sizes, through all walks of life...and being able to share, connect and have fun.
