Meet Your Photographer

Hi, I’m Destiny Malone, the artist behind the lens, and I would love to get to know your family and see if we’re a good match. Here’s a little about me and my approach to photography.

I am so blessed to be a wife and homeschooling mother of four amazing children here in Prosper, TX. It was my family that initially awakened my love of photography before I ever dreamed of doing it professionally. Now I am blessed to have the opportunity to extend that passion to you and your family!

Children are the greatest gifts we will ever be given, and I specialize in child and family photography to capture these special moments and fleeting years before they’re all grown. 

I’m particularly passionate about outdoor portraiture and all the freedom and opportunities it brings. Alternatively, I also offer petite sessions on location or in studio for headshots and model portfolio updates

Kids Love Me Because…

I want their experience to be fun, not stiff and boring! My focus is on real moments, real expressions, real kids. 

Posing and positioning is done in the most natural ways possible through play and prompts that yield the most genuine results. I believe in letting kids be kids, and I want their personality to shine through more than anything. This only happens when they’re happy! They get to take charge over many aspects of their session, and getting them involved makes it fun.

Kids tell their parents, “That was fun!” after we finish up, and to me, that’s what it’s all about. I don’t like asking for smiles; I like to let them come naturally. You want genuine emotion for your portraits, not forced smiles.

Parents Love Me Because…

I treat you like family! I’m welcoming, patient and flexible. I listen to what you’re wanting, and we plan the session together, coming up with an amazing vision for your portraits. When it comes time for the session, I don’t put a time limit on it because different kids need different amounts of time to warm up, and we wouldn’t want to miss it when that happens. My nurturing and upbeat spirit gets kids to open up and have fun during the session, finding creative ways to get those amazing compositions your heart is longing for.

“Destiny was great. I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, patient, energetic photographer. She had her hands full with our family and when I got hot, flustered and done, she still kept things moving and is motivated.”
-Tammie Allen-Scales, Garland TX

Creating Art

Portraiture is art, and art is meant to be on display. Many families choose me specifically for my selection of professional wall art, albums, and prints as well as my expertise in designing wall galleries. As a portrait artist, I feel each moment has the potential to be a work of art, with the right perspective and vision. I work almost exclusively with natural light, careful composition, and artistic enhancements in post processing to bring this vision to life. The goal is for each piece to become a statement piece, something that you love to stare at and want to display in your home.

Award-Winning Photography

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” – Paul Caponigro

I’m honored to have won various local and national awards for my portrait work, as well as several distinctions and features in many local, national and international publications. My pageant clients also regularly win competitions and industry cover features with the headshots we’ve created together.

Many local business owners and prominent families who have trusted me with their family portraits through the years keep coming back because they know I care about them like family, and they wouldn’t settle for anything less. I’d love to put my artistry to work for you, creating beautiful portraits you will cherish for a lifetime.
