Richardson Family Photography was established in Richmond, Virginia by Ken Richardson, or as the children lovingly call him, “The Picture Man”. We have worked in a variety of venues, specializing in daycares, preschools, dance schools and sports leagues. Our reputation for capturing that legendary smile from every child has helped spread our name throughout Richmond and its surrounding areas. We take pride in knowing the community where we live has entrusted us to deliver their fondest and most cherished memories for over 16 years. We are delighted to know that our portraits hang on the walls of families throughout Virginia.

Stay Social



When it comes to having pictures taken, we want everything perfect. Our smiles, our hair, even our clothes. For this reason and many more, I have been going to Richardson Family Photography for all my photography needs. As a realtor, I have Ken take my professional pictures to use in every aspect of my marketing. He also photographs the pictures needed each time I list a home. These pictures are so important because they are the first impression to a prospective buyer. I have years of wonderful memories, thanks to him.

He put together a priceless photo album for my mother on Mother’s Day one year that she absolutely treasures. It is the gift that keeps on giving.

Ken’s eye for detail and his patience in any work environment makes him a
pleasure to work with each and every time.

Hi Mr. Ken!
I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job that you have done taking pictures of my children. My son… is the one with autism at the Goddard School. He talks about you all the time! He refused to get his Chesterfield County school pictures taken the other day because you were not there! I told you I run a support group… S.N.A.P.; Supporting the Needs of Autistic’s Parents. We are having a meeting this Tuesday and I’m going to put out your cards with some copies of my kids christmas pictures that you took and will talk a little about you at the beginning of the meeting if that’s ok! Sincerely,
Carey P.
Dear Ken,
My husband and I want to thank you for making our birthdays so memorable. What a wonderful and unusual gift you gave us. The way you edited the video of our lives made the day so memorable for us!!

I wanted to commend you on the outstanding school pictures that you took of my son at GCLC! The way you captured my son’s beautiful smile just about brought tears to my eyes. The quality and color of the pictures are beautiful as well. Oh, and did I mention affordable!

I will certainly keep your number on hand and hope that you are the photography company for the school my son will be attending next year!

Thanks again!
Best regards,

Josie N.
Just wanted to tell you how thrilled we are with the pictures of our little boys. Thank you so very much for retouching my son’s face and lip again (he’s having a horrible time with food allergies, which manifest on his skin). We really appreciate that extra effort.

I have no idea how you guys get such little ones to pose so well for
pictures, especially when there are 2 of them (a 3-year & 8-month-old) in the picture, but you certainly did it! And this is our second round of photos with you guys since our children started at Goddard, and both sets of photos have been exceptional.

Thanks so much,

Jacqueline H.
We have been using Richardson Family Photography for several years and I find the quality of Ken Richardson’s work to be outstanding. He is very patient and takes a great deal of time with the children to get that perfect picture. We always get our pictures back in a timely manner. Ken is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure he can accommodate our busy schedules for picture day. I have recommended Richardson Family Photography to my friends, family and other daycares. Ken Richardson would be my only choice for my photography needs.
