    Debbie Riggs started working for the best portrait photographer in central Texas in 1998. She ran her business, but also paid close attention to what made beautiful portraits: natural light, composition, clothing and personal consultations. She and her husband, Mark, moved to Abilene, Texas with an empty nest in the summer of 2003 and soon after, there was no "leap of faith," but a complete faith in what God was leading her to do with her time and energy. Debbie is a member of PPA and a Master Photographer.

    Tammy Marcelain was drawn to photography from a young age. It wasn’t until her children were toddling around that she became serious about learning more deeply about the art of photography. Over the last 16 years she has been blessed to travel from coast to coast to take pictures of amazing clients. When she picks up her camera she feels connected to the people on the other side of the lens, and they always feel like family to her. "It is a true gift to be given the opportunity to photograph people through their journey, whether it is a birthday, high school graduation, engagement, anniversary or family portraits which mark the moments in time that are so important to remember. Photographs take us back to a moment which at the time seemed it would last forever, but in truth was fleeting." Tammy is always honored when someone allows her to record those moments for them.

These beautiful children have my heart.  I have photographed them almost yearly since the oldest was a baby.  I love, love, love the relationships with lifetime clients. They trust us and we are there for them.                                                                  Photographer: Debbie
