Photography by Dixie, Portrait Designers, is a premier Portrait Studio located in Wichita Falls, Texas. Dixie Dobbins, PPA Certified, M. Photog., Cr. -FTPPA is the owner and chief photographer for the studio.
The studio specializes in Fine Portraiture of Families, Children, Weddings and High School Seniors. A small amount of commercial work and Aerial photography round out the the remainder of the studios work.
"Our goal is to provide a high level of Quality to discriminating clients who appreciate innovative portraiture and great customer service" says Ms. Dobbins.
"We consider ourselves Portrait Designers because every portrait we create is a one of a kind. We spend the time with you discussing the location for the portrait, coordinating clothing and the mood of the portrait" says Dixie.
Story-telling Portraits are our Speciality.
"What we do is very special. Anyone can walk into a Walmart or chain studio and get cheap fast portraits, but that's not what we do here. We design portraits which capture the spirit of the person or family. We work very hard at creating something that will become an heirloom. Something that will take your breath away."
The Studio Staff and Dixie work with each client from the planning stages of the portrait to the finished product.
