My Story

Untitled photo

I love what I do more than you can imagine.  I invite you to experience a day with me.

I'm Cindy Ringer, a  photographer focusing on portraits and headshots for all ages, dabbling in lots of other photographic opportunities, currently specializing in beauty portraits in studio and family portraits on location.  I've recently relocated from Needham, MA to Madison, CT, and I'm working throughout New England.  I'm a recovering lawyer and salesperson who is absolutely filled up with gratitude that I can "work" as a photographer full-time. I pinch myself every day.

Who is LJR?  Lucinda Jean Ringer.  Me.  AKA Cindy Ringer.

Cindy is a member Professional Photographers of America, Sue Bryce Education, Madison Chamber of Commerce, and Hammonasett Chapter of Business Networking International.


Karen was a portrait client in my home studio. She uses her photos for her marketing business and keeps some personal.

Mary and her son came in for headshots when he joined her real estate business. We created business and family portraits together, both indoors and outdoors.

Read about the group portrait experience in Karen's review. We created individual headshots for everyone and also got some great group photos for fun.

It's hard to believe I first met Kae on the day of her photo shoot. After creating portraits in studio and outdoors with at least 6 wardrobe changes, I felt like we'd been friends for years.

"Loved working with Cindy. I actually don't enjoy having my photo taken but needed head shots and am SO glad I trusted them to Cindy. The experience was very relaxed. Cindy knew exactly how to make me look my best and I love love love the end product!"  -Leslie

"Cindy was so much fun to work with. I had never had professional photos taken for work but she made it very relaxing and comfortable for me! I was able to use Cindy's hair person which worked out great and stress free. The session was light and the photos came out better than I could have imagined. I even ended up with a glam shot I never intended on needing. Cindy knows how to bring the best out of anyone and I highly recommend her!"  -Gloria

"Our outdoor family photo shoot with Cindy was a lot of fun and resulted in pictures that far exceeded my expectations. My husband and children hesitantly came out to Wellesley College with me that day. However within minutes Cindy had everyone at ease. We moved around the campus taking a variety of pictures ranging from serious to playful. We all got into the process. By the time we were done we felt like rock stars! Later, when Cindy showed us the images, we were floored. How could she have captured all of us looking good in the same picture? Multiple times too. She's magic! Everyone who has seen our pictures has been very impressed. I highly recommend Cindy. She's talented, professional, and enjoyable to work with."  -Tara

"Cindy was so great to work with. I had never had professional photos taken before, but she made it an enjoyable and comfortable experience! Cindy also has a great team to do hair and make-up. The session was fun and the photos came out beautiful. Cindy knows how to get that perfect pose and I highly recommend her!"  -Dana

"Cindy has an amazing way of making her subject feel comfortable while also bringing out their natural personality and beauty. She is wonderful to work with and I am so happy I did it!"  -Angie

"Cindy recently photographed our family, and the pictures are priceless! I'm not sure a photoshoot was on the top of the list for our two wild (lol) boys that day, but Cindy found a way to make it fun, keep them engaged, and keep them smiling! All we can say is THANK YOU for these beautiful memories!"  -Asher

"We've had the pleasure of having Cindy photograph our family for the past two years. With very little effort, she makes us all look so much more photogenic than we actually are! We've even had friends tell us some of our pictures look like they belong in a catalog. We will continue to recommend her to family and friends. Keep up the awesome work Cindy!"  -Nary
