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."

Tis the season to GIVE BACK!  It’s no secret that ALL OF US are pinching penny’s this Christmas.  But could you imagine loosing your home?  Carissa Herzig and her family are facing just that unless we ALL chip in and help.  You can donate as little as $1.  It all adds up.  If you are a designer or photographer you will appreciate that if you donate you will be entered into a drawing to receive a TON of cool products.  Read below for more details….



The creator of Gracie’s Garden, Carissa Herzig, is in great need this holiday season. Due to an unfortunate financial fall-out (her husband’s current employer has not paid in over a month, nor does he plan on paying now), her family is facing eviction if they do not have rent money soon. Carissa’s own means of income through her crochet business has been hindered by a recent illness, preventing her from taking the orders necessary to keep up on the household expenses. They do not have a dime to their name, and will soon be without a home if help does not arrive. Carissa’s only wish for her family this Christmas is to have her children in their own home. Please help grant this Christmas wish for Gracie and her big brothers, Tristan and Payton. Even the smallest kindness will be the greatest blessing to this sweet little family.

Each person who is able to give a $1 or more will be put into a drawing.  A winner will be selected Monday evening and will receive The Whole Store from My Four Hens Photography and The Whole Store from Pretty Presets (combined $600 Value).  Thank you Sarah (My Four Hens Photography) for donating your entire store!   Sarah is an amazing friend who is always there for anything I ask, thank you.  Collen Rausch is Carissa’s Mom and all questions will be forwarded to her.  Thank you!

We will continue this through Monday!  Thank you. 





Happy Holiday’s,
