Ohio Sessions

I'm often in my home state of Ohio and love catching up with friends and clients! Below are my planned travel dates and availability.

If you're interested in booking a photo session for your family in Dayton, Cincinnati, or elsewhere in Southwest Ohio, send me a message! We'll work together to plan a session around a favorite pastime or special event that's meaningful to your family.

Ohio Session FAQ

Where will we take photos? If you book a mini session, the location will be predetermined by me. Booking a half or full session allows us to chose a custom location; we can pick a place you love or one of my favorite spots (Downtown, Dayton Art Institute, Eastwood Metro Park, Wegerzyn Gardens, Riverscape, Hobart Urban Nature Preserve, Mt. Echo Park, and many more).

What's the difference between sessions? I like to offer sessions at various price points to fit a variety of budgets, and the main difference is the amount of time we spend together. A mini session is the shortest; we'll only focus on 2–3 group photos and get them done as quickly as possible. A half session is longer, gives extra time for me to customize your shoot, and allows your children (and yourselves!) to get comfortable with me and my camera. Full sessions allow enough time for an activity (a picnic), multiple locations (like at home and your favorite park), snack breaks, bathroom breaks, and allows everyone to feel relaxed in front of the camera. During full sessions, there's plenty of time for both group and individual shots. Planning photos around a family activity is the best way to feel at ease in front of the camera and that's the secret sauce for beautiful, genuine photos!

Which session is best for candid photos? Full or half sessions allow enough time to get comfortable with the camera, which means you feel most like yourself and most relaxed. If you ask me, that's how the best photographs are made. 

Those dates don't work for me. Have any others? I keep this page up to date with my Ohio travel plans, and I'm always open to coming in town another time if you have a particular day in mind!
