modern + fun

portrait experience for all ages!

Unique locations. Creative images. Themes and ideas that fit you and tell the story you want to convey. No stuffy backgrounds, static poses or stale backdrops. Just a commitment to unparalleled personal service tailored to your needs.


Barbara Jo Photography is a full-serve natural light photography studio in Dover Ohio, serving children of all ages and their families.


Children's photography that goes beyond the usual portrait faire. Unique portraits that celebrate all that we love about childhood while focusing on your individual child.  


Senior portraits that focus on the whole experience of being a model for the day.


Family portraits that are more than just a quick shot for the Christmas card. Sessions that tell the story of your family today with both posed and fun mixed in together. No two sessions are alike-- just like no two families are the same.


Weddings are just an occasional gig for me, preferring to consider the outdoor and unusual events to the more traditional. Services are also tailored to elopements and small events for those looking to have great photography, no matter the event budget.


let's tell your story together.




who am I?


I'm a creative at heart and a professional in all that I do. I put a little of myself in every portrait I make. Meet Barb.
