A Photographer's Journal

Rita Spiegel is an Oceanside-based portrait and pet photographer. Photographs not only to document our lives, but also tell a story. They bring back memories at a glance. Click here to get back to the main website: www.RitaSpiegel.com or Rita@RitaSpiegel.com. I invite you to look through my portfolios and I hope you enjoy my images.


For animal lovers and people too, this gallery highlights dogs, cats, birds and people hanging with their pets.  

From Glamour images to children, this gallery highlights special events, festivals and the joy of daily life.

Living in Oceanside and growing up in San Diego, the ocean has always been a part of my life. This gallery displays some if my favorite images.

When we have the opportunity to visit other cities and countries, it lets us grow.

Flowers always seems to make people smile and feel good. I enjoy sharing these images with you.  Not only are fruits and veggies good for your body, but they fun and interesting subjects.

Boats, cars and buildings ... they provide me with inspiration to take images from view and different vantage points.

Every now and then, I'll go on fun random photo shoots and my images don't always fit into a gallery category or the need to create a new one ... so I just created this portfolio called "random".  No rhyme or reason about them.  Just fun, weird photographs
