Richard Phillips has been an avid photographer since his high school days. I am a Professional Photographer with many diverse subjects and interests. My specialties are casual or formal portraits, candids, engagement photos, documenting everyday life situations and events. My intuitive style makes sure that your portraits reflect who you are. My look into this wonderful world usually has a note of humor in it.
About 10 years ago when I had my first born, I realized I wanted to capture beautiful images of her that weren’t cell phone pictures. So I bought my first DSLR camera. It was cheap, but did the job. I learned that camera like the back of my hand. Over the years I had two more children and gained more knowledge of my camera and photography. Having a parent who is also a professional photographer, helped me gain the knowledge I needed to go into business.
I’ve always had a love for capturing moments in time, and the joy that comes with great pictures of your family is something I wanted to share with others. I have a natural gift when it comes to connecting with children and capturing them at their best. My life as a mom is busy and chaotic at times, but when I have these photo albums and framed pictures on my wall, they remind me that life is amazing and my family is incredible.

David has lived in Peachtree Corners for 32 years. Once he retired in 2014, he took up photography as a hobby, with an emphasis on nature photography. He also enjoys canoeing, hiking, trips to the Smokies, and volunteer work with the Gwinnett County Juvenile Court’s Youth Diversion Program. That initiative gives first-time youthful offenders a chance to start over with a clean slate rather than getting embroiled in the justice system. He also enjoys tackling photo and video projects for his friends and family, especially his two great-nephews up in North Carolina. David is Vice President of the PCPC.
