Newborn, children, maternity and family photographer based in Turlock, CA.


Welcome to Blessings in Focus Photography. I'm Michelle Patereau, your Certified Newborn and award winning photographer (see below!), mom, taxi, baseball lover and owner of this wonderful business. I am here to be silly with your kiddos and give you beautiful portraits to fill your homes with! I've lost some very special people in my life and looking back I love all the memories we made in portraits. Memories fade with time but, finding that one image can bring all those memories back! I feel you will never regret the portraits you take, even the silly ones, only the ones you didn't take. I would love to capture moments of your life and give you wonderful memories, in print, for your families and their families to come.

Let us Make Moments of Your Life Unforgettable!
