Risney Photo has been around for over 70 years. My parents, Harry and Kathy Risney, started the business in Missouri Valley, Iowa back in the 1950's and after my dad died in 1978, my mother continued to photograph until her death in 2004. I am their daughter, and I took over the business in February 2005. Because of my vast graphic design background, I added "& Design" to the name to become Risney Photo & Design, Inc.

All my life I have wanted to be a working artist and make a living doing what I love. Photography and graphic design have been my outlet for that creativity. I received my formal training from the University of Nebraska where I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, and then went on to hone my artistic skills for 21 years providing graphics, printing, photography and art direction for two Omaha-based companies. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Professional Photographers of Nebraska and regularly attend seminars and conferences to remain on the cutting edge of photographic services.

My focus these days is in the realm of business portraits, corporate events, sports, groups and photo restoration work. One thing that really makes me special is how easy I am to work with. People often tell me that I make the process so “painless” to get their photos done. I make sure that everyone has a a fun experience during the session whether they are a corporate executive or a young baseball player. My motto is “Where Fun Happens in a Flash” and I encourage everyone to relax and just have fun.

My photo restoration work comes under the canopy of R Legacy Preserved and I have done some wonderful projects for people with their old photos. They are so precious to maintain and enjoy for generations to come.

Risney Photo & Design is a home-based photography studio located just south of Council Bluffs, Iowa. Due to my close proximity to the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, I have the opportunity to shoot unique outside photographs that are just a short distance from my front door. I have access to many other beautiful outside venues or my indoor studio with a variety of backgrounds and props to choose from.

Overall, Risney Photo & Design should be your photographic studio of choice for Sports Teams Photography, Corporate Head Shots, Group Photography and Photo Restoration work. I am a very talented and friendly photographer with the artistic, technical and graphic expertise to capture and preserve your most precious photographic moments forever.
