About us


For over 25 years, Barnes Portrait Design has been committed to providing the utmost service, commitment and quality to discriminating portrait clients around the world.

As a dedicated team, it is our goal to provide our clients with an image that captures the subject's soul and personality, an image that speaks of the subject.

Our philosophy; that our portraits capture a moment in time, to be remembered for all eternity, is incorporated into each portrait.

Rich is known for his ability to relax his subject, make them feel at ease, and in turn, is able to capture the most natural expressions from them.

Richard and Kristen are both graduates of the Hallmark Institute of Photography.  Richard has won numerous awards and titles for his portraiture as well as being named "Massachusetts Photographer of the Year" several times.  In addition to teaching photographers from all over the world, he is considered to be one the Premiere Portrait Photographers in the country.

On a personal level Richard and Kristen are parents to four amazing children and enjoy spending time traveling as a family and sharing their lives with four beautiful rescued dogs and a couple of pampered cats. With their youngest son being on the Autism Spectrum they also share a passion for Autism Research and Autism Awareness which is very close to their hearts.
