PictureTakers Portrait Studio and Gallery
Connect with Jose & Lenore!
PictureTakers joined the Rocky River Chamber of Commerce in 2016. Jose & Lenore Trindade are a talented duo offering full-service photography, design and products. Their studio is located in Westlake at 25000 Center Ridge Road, but they “take their show on the road” for events and more!
“Jose photographs most of the big events, sports, and family portraits that are on location and in the studio, but I focus on the executive portraits and children,” Lenore shares. “I love to design unique photographic sets for the children and then create wall portraits that will hang on people’s walls for many years to come.”
In addition to the one-of-a-kind sets she builds for youthful photography shoots, Lenore also designs sports/travel team banners and executive materials, such as business cards, promotional pieces, and more. Her design abilities are extensive, she creates shirts and logo wear for companies and events, and she even has a designer line of clothing and has licensed pieces for photography on greeting cards.
Being a part of the Chamber has allowed Jose and Lenore to connect with members on a one-on-one basis as they attend many luncheons and support the Chambers’ community-wide events, such as the Christmas Party and Business Expo. “The Christmas Party so much fun! Actually, all of the events that [the Chamber] hosts are,” Lenore said. “Now that we know people, it has become so much more enjoyable. Very friendly group!”
Most recently, PictureTakers photographed the Chamber's very own Board of Directors for their annual photo! It can be seen featured on our social media pages, as well as here on the website.
FUN FACTS about Jose & Lenore: Lenore grew up just next store in Lakewood, and Jose is from Portugal. When he was five-years-old, his family moved to Angola, Africa. They resided there until he was 15-years-old, and that is when they moved to the United States. Lenore & Jose have been together for 41 years and have lived in Westlake for the past 29 years. They have one son, Logan, who is in college at CSU for Environmental Science and a cat Max that rules the house!
They love to travel – and have so extensively across the US, Alaska, Hawaii and Europe. In fact, they only have 5 states left to visit until they complete all 50 states! The National Parks are a hot spot their family enjoys visiting while traveling, and Logan collects the stamps as the family experiences the country, a collection he started when he was three-years-old and has grown to quite an impressive size.
