Who is Debra Ellsworth?

I am an Austin, Texas based full service photographer who specializes in capturing life's precious moments through memorable photographic sessions or events. I am passionate about leaving legacy photographs of loved ones from birth on up including: Newborns, Children, Families, Senior Portraits, Engagements, Weddings and Events.

I focus on collaborating with individuals to design their photographic session. We talk about goals for image styles and how photographs will be used. From there we decide whether an outdoor photo session, a studio session or a combination of both work best.  The day of the session is about having getting comfortable and having fun during a memorable session that inspires photographs that tell a story for generations to come.

After a session, we spend time laughing and sometimes crying while reliving the experience through the image presentation.  Working with clients to create artwork for their home where the subject of their art is their loved ones is such a pleasure.  We eliminate the guessing game of "how will something look on my wall" or "what size should I order" through software that allows us to show your actual wall(s) in your home.  We will work with you to select appropriate sizes as you will see how something will look before you place your order.

With over 20 years of experience in Portrait and Event Photography, my clients count on my training and skill to provide unique, creative, legacy photographs. Besides the knowledge from years in this industry, the qualities that contribute to my success are my:  creative visions, my strong attention to detail, my sensitivity, my relaxed personality, and my love of people.

I love getting to know people and archiving who they are as they travel this journey called life! I am passionate about providing images that people will cherish as they are reminded where they were during that time of their life. My love of people and documenting their stories through images, truly inspires me to spend extra time on each image.

If you have made it this far, you may want to know a little more about my personal life. I am a Christian and rely on God as my backbone in life. My husband and I feel blessed that God allowed us to be the parents of our two sons. Our family and friends are amazing and make life a supported adventure. Gardening and being out in nature is therapy for me. I count on yoga and exercise to help keep my body and mind healthy. My volunteer work is important to me and I believe that all of us need to contribute to our society. Some of my volunteer work involves my Church, Schools, SafePlace, The Alzheimer’s Foundation, and Stop Child Trafficking Now.
