NE OHIO children to seniors & their families

Barbara Jo



I believe there's a story in everyone.


Barbara Jo Photography wants to tell your story in images worthy of standing the test of time. From little ones to high school seniors, my goal is to provide you with an experience and not just portraits. Whether you are looking for a session to highlight a favorite spot your family loves or go on a new adventure, I look to always find a way to bring out your unique story in every session.

Serving children from baby to high school senior and the families who love them in Northeast Ohio, I look forward to working with you as well.


your year, your you.




Barbara Jo Photography is a full experience senior portrait studio and so much more! I focus on portraits that not only are on location in places that mean something to your story of becoming the young adult you are but maybe say a little about the person you want to become! Starting in 2018, I also have studio space available to me as well, but the focus will always remain on personalizing the session for your story!

From consultation to your ordering session, I personalize the experience to you and your needs. And with sessions that start at $175 and ample payment plans, there should be plenty of room for great senior pics no matter your budget.

Children & Family

Family and children portraiture are personal favorites of mine. I love to watch families connect with one another through my lens. I offer sessions that range from mini portrait sessions through longer lifestyle adventures.

Portrait sessions for families and children are some of my personal favorites. Most of my clients want digital files so packages are available that cover either prints or digitals. I offer portrait sessions that are more classical to in-home unscripted lifestyle sessions. To learn more about my pet project for adoptions, click here.

So pleased with this photographer! She had great ideas for poses and a great eye for the perfect SPOTS for those poses. Her easy going, genuine demeanor made the experience even better. Very pleased with my daughter’s senior sessions and the moments captured on film. Highly recommend Barbara Jo Photography!
