Lisa Russo

I’m Lisa Russo and I currently live in Roanoke, Texas with my wonderful husband Vic, kids Aidan, Ava and my gassy/snoring/sleepy/adorable bulldog sidekick Lulu.

I could write about picking up a camera as a teenager, knowing what I wanted to do with my life…but that would be hooey. Truth: I grew up riding horses in rodeos (no lie!) and spent all most of my spare time dreaming about Duran Duran. My passion for photography began when my dear husband Vic decided I NEEDED A HOBBY back in the early 90s (I had a rather dry job, you see…). He bought me a cute little Minolta. I loved it, took a bunch of classes, taught classes…and so on…

I spent most of the ’00s working in the scrapbooking industry before opening a photography studio in Atlanta specializing in adorable babies and children. And YES, they were ALL adorable, even when they pooped on me (often). We’ve moved 5 times in 14 years (New York • Atlanta • Chicago • Atlanta again • Erie, Pennsylvania • DFW Texas), which led me to return to my original love of fine art. You can read more about that decision here.

I’m chatty, so you’ll find I write about anything and everything that interests me and my family. Cooking, reading, exercise, rugby, baseball, bulldogs, soccer…you name it!

They say if you love what you do it isn’t really work. It’s true. Shush now, I’m NOT just saying that. I swear, if I could work 24×7 to edit the backlog of images I’ve shot I would be a happy, happy gal. My other love is typography and my brain spins constantly with ideas
