Did you ever have a photoshoot you were not happy with?
If the answer is yes, you’re on the right website! If the answer is no, just take a look at my portfolio anyways. I always hated when people would just snap a picture when I wasn’t ready or caught the wrong angle. What I even hate more is when people takes pictures of me and it does not look anything like me. I decided to put together a small portfolio of my artwork and show you that you can be comfortable and love photos of yourself again! These are real people, real moments, and real experiences captured by TamedCurlsPhotography, LLC!
 About TamedCurls
I'm Ly'Kerria Richardson also known as "TamedCurls," a self taught photographer based in Freehold, New Jersey. I always loved art, whether it was photography, film, graphic design, or just going to museums.What made you turn photography into a business? I had a friend who shoots professionally saw my pictures go viral overnight. After all the re-shares, retweets, and support because of my pictures he mentioned I should turn my hobby into a profession. After careful consideration, staying up long nights, researching lighting and editing, I decided to do such. What is your mission? My mission is to provide a safe and comfortable space for my clients. What was the first thing you photographed?  The Sky at a football game! I loved the way the sunset was and I had to capture it. Funny thing is, every year for Christmas until I brought my first DSLR I asked my mother for a camera and I was photographing everything. I love natural photography, traveling, meeting new people, and accepting new challenges! What sessions are my favorite?  I L.O.V.E maternity sessions/baby showers but portraits are my go to! I graduated from Brookdale Community College with an Associates in Business Administration and I will be pursing my Bachelor’s in Finance and Photography.

I absolutely love my maternity photos in Freehold, NJ! So professional, very cute work space, excellent vision and fast editing! Thank you so much 😭 I will treasure my photos for a lifetime.

TamedCurls was a pleasure to work with! As I’m not usually comfortable in front of camera’s, she made the experience that much more smoother by coaching me through different poses and having such a graceful, pleasant demeanor. Her vision was to the “T” so there wasn’t much we needed to change in terms of what poses and images we wanted to recreate. I did have one additional idea which she gladly brought to life! I would recommend anyone in the area to her. You won’t regret it! 


As someone who avoids the camera because my photos always look awkward, Kerria did an amazing job of putting me at ease to produce some gorgeous photos for my 50th birthday! Extremely professional, very prompt with inquiries, and just an awesome spirit. Loved her work so much I booked her to shoot my party as well. Highly recommend TamedCurlsPhotography.

My headshots session went so well! The patience and professionalism helped me open up and not be so nervous. The entire session was a vibe which I appreciated and I’m looking forward to being able to do more work together!
