The Artist

Trish Reda has made a career out of doing what she loves; using her unique sense of style to create images that tell a story about her subjects. Her approach to photography is much as it is toward life; relaxed and with a sense of humor.

Working primarily on location and in black and white, Trish takes her time during her photo shoots. Her uncommon ability to connect with her little subjects combined with her relaxed approach results in wonderfully sincere and honest images.

But also


Hello there!  This interruption is brought to you by the shady,  creeped out feeling when I tried writing about myself in the 3rd person.

The bio above was written by my friend, CJ and I've never been able to write anything as short sweet and spot on.  And so it stays. I appreciate your understanding. 

Of one thing, I'm certain. You're far to busy to be reading about my affinity for cats and coffee.  I'm the cliche. Let's just leave it there. 


Here's the thing.  It isn't about me. It's about you and I can't wait to meet you.  I love all of my clients and it's a privilege to document their families,  but there is something special about meeting you for the first time. From the awkwardness of our first meeting to the uninitiated moment your shyest runs and gives me a hug that knocks me over.  That first time is special. 

If you've seen my work and you like it, we're off to a really good start. Something about my style attracts the best clients ever in the history of the universe.  Seriously. 

You most definitely are my people.  Like most, you see the beauty in what is obviously beautiful.  Unlike many, you see a bittersweet beauty in things like skinned knees, dried tears, unmade beds and crayoned walls. 

You want that symmetrical, serene portrait of your son and daughter, smiling at my camera with only their eyes.  Me too.

But you're hoping for something more than the holiday card photograph.  You need to make sure that when it's all said and done, you are looking at fine art portraits reflecting all of the love and everything that is unique about you and your family.  You know it's not easy but you know it's not negotiable either.  Same here. 

You're likely super hyper-sensitive to how quickly it's all going by and sometimes you cry about it on a random Tuesday.  The little girl above is my daughter, Gracie.  The not-so-little girl below is my daughter Gracie.

I cried yesterday.

Crossing my fingers we meet soon.  

Love, Trish

What’s your story, morning glory?
