About Us

"If I could give you any gift, I'd give you love and LAUGHTER,

a peaceful heart, a special dream and joy forever after!"

Especially the laughter, because I love to laugh!  Any of my friends can tell you that.  They think I'm a little crazy (in a good way).  I try to find the humor in almost any situation.  Life is too short to let anyone drain you of your happiness and laughter!

My name is Viki and I love to create art for my  current and future clients.  You have an amazing family and you deserve amazing portraits, and we would like to create that for you.  Your portraits will bring your home to life. I capture everything from newborn to toddler to teenagers. I specialize in High School Seniors, families and weddings.  I also love to work with businesses to create images for their websites, brochures, business cards or any other needs they have. I also photograph real estate. 

I'm a born and raised Texan and a graduate of THE Texas A&M University (Whoop)!  I was a social worker for 15 years.  While still working, I went back to school and started taking photography classes because I had always had such a passion for it.  I started getting a lot of business and eventually could not hold down a full time job and do my photography, so I went full time in 2005. 

I have served as past President of the East Texas Photography Forum, I am a member or Texas Professional Photographers (TPPA), Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and became a PPA Certified Professional Photographer in 2013.  There are only about 3000 Certified Professional Photographers in America! 

I attend numerous conventions, schools, seminars and online trainings yearly to continue to educate myself to bring you the very best photographic experience ever, because you deserve the best for your investment.

Take a look around at my galleries and if I can answer any questions for you, feel free to contact me!  Come join me on my social media sites to keep up with the what is going on here at Lasting Impressions by Viki

Life is too short to be serious all the time! 

So, if you can't laugh at yourself, call me...I'll laugh at you!
