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 that time of year again, and everyone is scheduling their holiday family photo sessions. When setting up these shoots, clients often ask for your advice on what to wear. It can be tricky to determine how to coordinate outfits throughout an entire family, without just wearing the obvious white shirt and jeans. Here are some great lay-downs with inspiration and ideas on how to perfectly execute a family outfit.

First things first, it’s really important everyone wears something they feel comfortable in and like themselves. The whole purpose of a photo session is to capture the individuality of your subjects, so they should remain true to their own style. In theses examples, you’ll notice there aren’t any outrageous, distracting patterns or logos that would take away from the subjects. There are pops of color strung throughout, tying each outfit together.

If they’d like to remain more muted and neutral, adding texture and subtle pattern can help amp up the overall look. Adding a few subtle accessories can finish the look nicely, and bring out a little personality too.

Brooke has been a great friend to our family! We love her like she is our own! She has done multiple shoots for our family including my sisters wedding, senior portraits as well as an outdoor shoot of my toddler and myself and most recently a family shoot at the Chickamuga Battlefield. Brooke always presents herself in a professional manner, is timely and creative. Her degree in graphic design goes hand in hand with her photograph skills giving her an edge over others in her field. If you chose to do your business with Brooke, you won't regret it! Thanks again Brooke!
