About Me

My Photo
Brooke Ragsdale
Sweet Graphix Design & Photography is definitely NOT your average retail design and photography company.  My name is Brooke Ragsdale and I will work with throughout the process, starting with getting to know you so I can pick up on your personality traits all the way to your intentions for your finished designs and/or photographs.  I want you to walk away from this experience feeling like you will “do” something artistic or creative with the photographs instead of tossing them into an envelope and storing them in “that” box in your attic.

I am probably one of the most laid back and comical people you will ever meet.  I am known for taking awkward situations and turning them into something so funny it’s a top 10 honorable mention.  When working with me I want you to feel relaxed and walking away feeling like you had a blast. I’m a spectator for the most part.  I like to hang out on the “out-skirts” and watch my subjects interact, especially when photographing children.  I get so tickled when watching children interact with each other and when they discover something new.  Being able to capture the expression on their tiny little faces is a great way to document a monumental milestone and deserves to sit on the mantel.

Often with large groups of people like families, I have to get involved a bit more and suggest certain poses but I still like to stay in the background to photograph who you really are.  I want you to be able to look back through your photographs and see yourself and feel your personality jump off the page.

By now you should have a decent understanding of how I work and if you decide that my style isn’t what you are after, then I would be more than happy to refer you to a few other local companies that offer a different experience.  My mission for my photography business is not about creating art for myself but for you, my client.  I want to create things that YOU will appreciate and want hanging in your home for many, many years.  I’m all about dirty faces, bare feet splashing in puddles, crocs, scuffed knees.  These are real life things and moments and those are what I love to capture for you.  That being said, I love taking my photos a bit further and performing artistic edits on them.  For examples of that, please look through the retouching photo folder.

I want to be remembered for "Creating your life in Art."

Today I spent the evening with Heather & Stephen who are getting married in a couple of weeks.  We went to Heritage Park.  Please stay tuned for wedding photographs…

As some of you know I have had a Sony CyberShot for sale.  As of today, I have sold it along with all of the lenses.  I am sorry to those of you that emailed with interest and hope you find what you are looking for in the future.

Here is two photographs I took today of two very strange looking critters:



I was trimming my tomato plants today and found this worm of some kind.  It appears that mass reproduction is occurring or at least that is what I am guessing the white oblong-thingies are.


This is a moth that caught my eye this evening as we were coming in the door from playing outside and watering the yard and flowers.  Just sharing…

I love it when I run across clients that appreciate the variety of opportunity to manipulate images.  Giving the client things to think about such as their personal taste, design and color-scheme of their own private homes opens a door of  endless opportunities.  Below are several images that were chosen to enhance per the clients taste and we had a blast playing around with them.  Enjoy!
