Meet Photographer Lucy Thornton

Capturing Life's Precious Moments Through The Lens

With a career spanning three decades, Lucy Thornton’s journey as a photographer has been shaped by her love for her three daughters and her unwavering dedication to her craft. As the new photographer for McKinney & Prosper Lifestyle, plus Frisco City Lifestyle magazines, Lucy brings a unique perspective and a wealth of experience to the table.

"My love of photography began during my junior year in high school, where I served as the photographer for the yearbook staff," she says.

Since then, Lucy honed her skills and developed a keen eye for capturing life's most precious moments. From the delicate beauty of hummingbirds to the dynamic energy of family/pet portraits, Lucy's passion for photography shines.

"Photography is not just about capturing an image; it's about creating art," Lucy summarizes.

While anyone can take a picture with a phone or a basic camera, Lucy's expertise lies in her ability to use a manual camera and manipulate settings to achieve stunning results. Years of training and experience have allowed her to master the art of using depth of field to create dreamy backgrounds that enhance the overall composition.

Lucy's versatility as a photographer is evident in her diverse portfolio, from real estate and family portraits to events and landscapes. "My ultimate dream gig lies in being a family vacation photographer, where I can accompany families on their journeys and document their entire vacation."

Beyond her technical skills, Lucy's success can be attributed to her ability to build genuine connections with her clients. Over the years, she's cultivated a loyal clientele, many of whom have become friends. 

With her unique perspective, technical expertise, and ability to forge meaningful connections, Lucy continues to capture life's most beautiful moments through her lens. "I hope to help enrich the Lifestyle publications and inspire readers to appreciate the artistry and emotion behind every photograph," she assures.
