About Me


From photographing my first born to my first pet, it was love at first click. I feel that photography is more about telling a story and capturing personalities and expressions than it is about the perfect pose. For this reason, I fell in love with lifestyle photography and photojournalism.

I began freelancing for a local newspaper a number of years ago, photographing people, events and food. My photojournalistic style of photography has imprinted itself into my photography...natural and real.  My work has been published in AAA and Style magazines, The Folsom Lake Entertainer, Roseville  and Foothills Magazines and Marshall Medical's For Your Health magazine as well as in brochures and tourism magazines, advertisements and other print media.

Since I am an advocate of animal rescue (having adopted two cats and a dog from shelters), during my spare time I volunteer for animal shelters photographing cats and dogs. I can be reached at (916)804-1654 or mbelgal@yahoo.com.
