Hi, we are Doreen Birdsell and Lisa Feistel owners of Moments In Time Photography & Video in beautiful, sunny Sarasota, Florida. We have been capturing timeless family memories through photography for over 25 years.

Doreen’s career began in her studio in New York City, photographing fashion for Ford Models, Elite, and many others. Clients have included Cybil Shepherd, Omar Sharif, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, Michael Bolton, country singer Wynonna Judd and more. We were also house photographers at many NYC venues including the Boathouse in Central Park, and various New York City hotels, until moving to Provincetown, MA on Cape Cod. Provincetown was America's first art colony, where we were greatly influenced by its fine artists, and renowned art photographers.

Lisa has been photographing memories to last a lifetime since our beginning days in New York City. Her work has been touted to evoke enthusiasm and just have fun – to make for undeniably precious moments in time. Her patient movement, letting the scene evolve, is consistent with her background also as a documentary videographer.

As lovers of animals our heartfelt connection led us to photographing for the American Cancer Society for more than ten years in their effort to save lives and prevent cancer at their “Pause for a Cause Event” held each year in Riverside Park, NYC. We are truly blessed with the privilege now of capturing memories that will last a lifetime here in Sarasota.

Moments in Time and our team, have been serving clients who gratefully reward us by continuing to return to chronicle their precious moments in time for over twenty years. 

Our creative Wedding photography will capture your love in a way that will preserve your emotions long after your special day. Our family portraits will not only capture our beautiful settings but the unity of family that will be cherished forever from generation to generation. For the graduate in your family, we aim to highlight their unique interests and capture their true personality.
