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 this time of year when you stay in a snuggle up with a good book and a hot cup of coffee.  Yeah right…if I had the time.  Sounds good though.  Thing’s have been slow starting but now they are in full swing.  We are planning a stay-at-home Christmas Eve with dinner and surprise’s to come.  Robert’s mother will be spending Christmas Eve with us because she’s leaving for Aruba on Christmas Day.  How lucky is she?  We are planning an evening of cookie decorating, gingerbread house making, and we might open a gift or two.  (WINK)

Shh…the girl’s don’t know it yet but they have a “new” friend that is planning on making an appearance before the holiday is threw.  I got this wonderful idea from a fellow Facebook friend Michelle Day Wilson.  This is how she explained it to me: “He is a 'scout' elf for Santa. He magically flies back to the North Pole every night to report on the child’s behavior. Her elf just happens to be crazy (like everyone else in their family) and does silly stuff each night.”  Now don’t you think that is too cute?  I found a $10 stuffed-doll at Wal-mart that I plan to accessorize to suite the holiday season and bring her out every year.  Thank you so much Michelle.  I have a feeling this will be a great addition to our family holiday traditions.

I have posted some photograph’s below of a few old and new Christmas decoration’s.  Enjoy!














Happy Holiday’s
