About DCPG

We are a baby, lifestyle, and commercial photography and design firm based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia consisting of the husband-and-wife team Ciesther & Mendell dela Cruz. We've been bringing our creative brains, camera magic, and hearty laughs (as well as a smidge of maritalbickering) to happy clients since 2005. Aside from DCPG, we're also raising three stellar humans, and after moving 10 times, we have finally settled into a forever home that we are renovating ourselves.

We would love to chat with you about designing the perfect portrait session and seeing the process all the way to hanging your images on your walls. If you own a business or personal brand, we would love to help create imagery to elevate your hard work.



There's nothing like feeling the heft of a bound album and watching your kids grow with every page. Or the joy of walking into a room immediately greeted by your loved ones' beautiful faces on your wall every day. Studies have even shown that displayed portraits give your children a sense of belonging and feeling cherished, which in turn boosts their self-esteem.

We create a record of your history and legacy - portraits that your children and grandchildren are able to confidently keep, touch, and look at for years because they are created with love by master craftsmen using the finest, archival-grade materials. We want to show you the beauty of investing in real, tangible portrait products.

Consultations and portrait design meetings by appointment only; please message us via our Contact page to get this party started!
