John Fredette Photography | About


I am a portrait photographer specializing in Newborn, Family and Child photography.

I am a dad to 3 beautiful daughters and 2 sons, and a grandfather to 3 incredible grandchildren.  I currently live in Southern, California and have lived here most of my life.  I can be quite a character at times and don’t offend easily.  I enjoy music, playing guitar, camping, hiking, nature and just about any activity that gets me outdoors.  I love life, I love family, I love learning and I love photography.


For as long as I can remember photography has been a passion of mine.  I enjoy photographing everything from newborn babies, kids and families to the majestic landscapes of the High Sierras.

Of all the subjects I’ve photographed, newborn photography is by far the most satisfying for me. Within the past 6 months I have become a grandfather to 2 precious little angels. Their arrival has had a huge impact on me and awakened me to the importance of capturing those first 10-14 days of a newborns arrival. In a matter of weeks, a blink of an eye, your little one will no longer fit so tiny in your arms.  Preserving those memories that mark such a defining moment in our lives when a child is born, compares to no other.

My goal is simple!  It is to create images that capture the uniqueness of everyone I photograph.  To photograph them in the most flattering light possible. To preserve those precious memories for generations to come.

I thank God every day for allowing me to do what I love.  I am grateful to every client that chooses me to capture their special moments.
