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."

It’s a very busy time right now here at Sweet Graphix Design & Photography. As I look out my window, I see leaves falling.  I love this time of year. I admit – I LOVE winter!!!!!

I wanted to take this time to let you know of our holiday schedules and deadlines:

Last day to have a session and order your prints and products in time for Christmas delivery is December 5. Orders should be placed by December 10th.

At the time of this post, we have TUESDAY'S & SUNDAY'S available for this deadline.  Please note, it could be very chilly this time of year – outdoor sessions with really little ones could be iffy. Just be prepared and have warm clothing options! Sessions scheduled after December 5th  are not guaranteed for holiday orders.

We’ll be closed November 24th – 29th for Thanksgiving.

We’ll be closed December 19th through January 3rd for Christmas & New Years.

DST ends November 7th. The days are getting shorter. We prefer to shoot two hours prior to sunset, so this will require earlier afternoon appointments.

And, as a friendly reminder: no appointment is official until your sitting fee and online electronic agreement have been completed. You will need to call us to set up your appointment.

P.S. We are having Day 3 of the FREE Children’s Photo Session this Sunday.  Those of you that have this date booked please be aware of weather conditions and your little ones.

Thank you for visiting our site. Please check us out further:
