Lynda's Bio

I've been a photographer since I was a child, first using a Kodak Brownie Camera. Photographs of my family have come to mean so much to me now that my parents and my oldest brother are gone. Looking at those old black and white and early color photographs easily spin me back in time and fill me with a lifetime of memories.

Images by Lynda Richards began in 1986. It is an in-home studio located 15 minutes southeast of Des Moines, just one mile off four-lane Highway 5. Several acres of timber, streams, ponds and rivers are available with lovely settings for your family or senior portraiture. Favored areas for environmental portraiture are the large garden views as well as the colorful fall foliage timbers. In the outdoor studio you will find many surprises to enhance your personality.

The indoor studio is filled with a variety of backgrounds, sets and props. Clients will feel comfortable in their personal changing room and are welcome to look through the many samples of work on display.

Lynda studies continuously to keep up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques. She holds many awards for her portraiture. Lynda is also a much-published photographer with her travel, nature, and contemporary photographs having been published in books, calendars, and on postcards. She has work on permanent display at the Friendship House in Stavropol, Russia titled, "A Look at an Iowa Farm". In 2000 she was hired by the Blue Ribbon Foundation to photograph for the book, "Our State Fair". Lynda has also had the honor of being the Photography Judge at the Iowa State Fair. She has judged several County Fair Photography Contests and the Iowa State Fair 4-H and FFA.

At Images, we want to please you, our client, in every way possible. Service is our #1 priority and we want you to look great, as well as feel great about the experience.
