The House Of Photography, Richmond, VA

A Mississippi native from Quitman living in Richmond VA for 24 years. She is a passionate and dedicated photographer with an impressive 14 years of professional experience. But her journey with photography began long before that, as she was gifted a camera by her great-grandparents during her early teenage years. This early connection to photography was deeply influenced by her great-grandmother, who would lovingly open her cedar box of cherished photographs and share stories about people Connie didn't even know, just by looking at their images.

Connie's inspiration comes from the belief that photographs should visually tell your story, a principle she continues to uphold in her work today. With an innate talent and a lifelong connection to photography, she captures moments that freeze time.

Specializing in branding and boudoir photography, Connie recognizes the power of great imagery for small businesses and the life-changing impact of boudoir sessions for women. In August 2022, her dream was realized by opening The House of Photography, a 3500 sqft studio located at Stony Point Fashion Park in Richmond, VA. This venture was made possible through the unwavering support of her friends and community, who came together to help her build her dream house for photography.

At The House of Photography, Connie doesn't just welcome her clients; she embraces them as guests and ensures they leave as family. Your photography experience is not just about capturing moments; it's about finding your new home for photography, where your unique story is beautifully crafted and cherished for life.
