About

I am a transplanted Southern girl, the mother of three grown children and ‘Mimi’ to two granddaughters.  I love to capture images and moments through a camera’s lens.  I miss the ocean but love the mountains and streams.  I also love to study the Bible, and although I still have so much to learn about God, life, and love, I’m so grateful for His patient lovingkindness.

I shoot mostly with a refurbished Canon 40D, an Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens, and a newly acquired Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens.  My favorite lens to use is my son’s Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens.  I love macro photography!  For portrait photography, one of the best inexpensive investments I made was a Soft Box Flash Diffuser.

If you would like to purchase an image, some can be found through Fine Art America or through istock.  If you would like to use an image, please don’t hesitate to ask.  Thank you!

On October 11, 2013 I changed my blog and business name from Sweet Capture Photography to Rene Yoshi Photography.  You can read about why I made the decision here:  Rebirth

If you would like to hear what’s on my heart as I seek to learn more about God and have a closer relationship with Him, please visit Sweet Rains.
