Steven Studios Bakersfield, CA

About Us

Steven Studios has been operating and serving customers in Kern County since 1978. Our business operates out of a 2,500 sq. ft. studio located on S. Chester in the middle of Bakersfield. We are a full service studio, offering  photography services to fit almost any need. We specialize in Senior Portraits, Family Portraits, and Athletic Team pictures.

Senior Portraits

The Senior Portrait is usually the last portrait your child will take before they become an adult and it is a very meaningful part of their high school experience. Seniors are able to take advantage of our state of the art equipment, experienced and knowledgeable staff, and our spacious studio grounds. Our studio offers not only indoor backgrounds, but outdoor as well in our beautiful, private garden. The studio is available for Senior Portrait photography during regular business hours.

Family Portraits

Most people agree having a family portrait made is important – it’s just finding the time to do it that’s tricky. Trust us though, it’s worth the effort once you’re looking at that gorgeous photo on your wall!

A Wall Portrait hanging in your home is a wonderful way to show off your family. This is the most cherished item you have on display in your home and, as time passes, this Wall Portrait becomes priceless. At Steven Studios we can provide the perfect family portrait. Remember – planning is the essential key in providing a quality Family Portrait!

Old Photographs and Their Restoration

Have some older photos you want to preserve? Did a treasured photo get damaged while you were cleaning? If you are in need of having your photos preserved or restored, please call us, we can help! Old photographs become brittle and start to break apart; having them preserved assures that future family members can enjoy these cherished images for years to come.


Our Wedding Photography shows the complete wedding from start to finish. We take special care in making pictures that display the bride and groom, the wedding party, the families, and the celebration.

Our finished albums are beautiful, filled with candid and traditional photography. You can choose from a traditional “slip-in” album or one of our custom designed magazine style albums – stop by the studio to check them out! Each time you open your album you will revisit your wedding and the beloved memories from your special day.

Proms and Dances

If it’s a Prom, Winter Formal, a simple company Christmas Party, or something in between, Steven Studios is ready to provide you with great dance pictures!

Steven Studios dance services available include:

  • Custom backgrounds to fit any theme
  • Custom promotional posters and dance bids
  • Candid photography
  • Competitive pricing

Meet the Photographer – Fred J. Sbardellati

I became a photographer when I was stationed with the Army in Vietnam. Returning to the States, I received my Bachelors Degree in Photography. I am a Certified Professional Photographer.

It has always been a passion of mine to own my own studio and to photograph High School Seniors. Over the past three decades it has been a welcome challenge in keeping up with the developing trends and styles of the High School Senior. Steven Studios has adapted well. With the help of digital technology Senior Portraits are alive and well at Steven Studios.

It just keeps getting better and better…
