About Richard.

Captivating and relevant senior portrait photography is more than just a click of the shutter. Senior portrait photography should be expressive, creative and above all tell the story of who the senior is. From experiences going back to when I was kid, I have learned how to make senior photography art while telling their unique story.

My childhood was spent traversing the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains exploring,  and learning to love people and the outdoors. I helped my grandfather bail hay and harvest his gardens. I learned from my father what it means to be a teacher. And, I garnered invaluable lessons from my mother about how to care for and love people.


Next to my faith and my family, photography is my passion.


Throughout my life I have travelled to many places. I have seen and experienced some of life’s best and some of life’s worst. It is remarkable how standing behind a lens can teach you things you never thought possible.


My own life has shaped the photographer I am today. I have learned to love God. Love people. Love life.


Hope you like my work.
