It all started with a Kodak Brownie that I got by saving up Campbell soup labels. I can still remember the exhilarating feeling the first time I looked through the lens. It is the same feeling I had in 1997, when Judy agreed to marry me, despite my antics!
Judy and I have more than 50 years combined portrait experience, and we feel so fortunate to have worked in this creative profession for so many years. We started Artistic Portraits in the mid-90s and have been serving this wonderful Tri-Cities’ community ever since. We enjoy having the opportunity to create lasting memories with our client’s families and love that we get to collaborate with some of the nicest families you’ll ever want to meet.
We specialize in portraits of families, graduates, pets and children. Artistic Portraits also does weddings, as well as business photographs. And since 1995, we have been taking portraits of local youth athletes through our Zinn’s Photography division. We are blessed to live in an area with amazing vistas that help provide beautiful settings for your portraits. We believe each client session gives us the opportunity to create something lasting that is treasured for a lifetime.
Please get to know our work better by viewing the galleries on each page. If you like what you see, give us a call. We’d love to get to know more about you and what you’d like to accomplish during your session.
We Love Our Community!
Not only do we love getting to know our clients and treating them like VIPs, but it is so important to us that we give back to this great community we call home. Artistic Portraits sponsor teams for the Greater Richland Little League and Pasco Little League. We also support the following amazing organizations through product, cash, or in-kind donations.
