serving children to seniors & their families in NE Ohio

meet barb



I'm Barb.

I'm Mom to six great kids.

My oldest is now in his sophomore year in college. I really don't see how its possible because yesterday I took him to his first day of kindergarten. My babies, the Wonder Twins, are high school freshman. So, dear friends, I am eyeball-deep in the my-babies-are-growing-up emotional roller coaster myself!

But, just for funsies, we followed the call put on our heart and started over again with a two-year-old! She really is the apple of our eye and has brought a whole new dynamic to our family. We are all so in love.

I regret not getting serious about photography until they were all older, so the poor baby is going to be tired of my camera!



I have always had an interest in good photography-- composition, light, capturing my kids just being themselves

 but it wasn't until I was asked to photograph a family member with special needs-- and not being happy with the results-- that I decided to actually LEARN my camera. I had a Nikon D40 back then, but I learned to rock that little thing!


The business grew from the desire to photograph children in the way that I now wish I had done with my kids as littles.

I pour so much of myself in every push of the shutter because I am at a place in life where most of my clients are not yet. I sometimes joke with them that I know what portraits are the ones they are going to treasure in ten years, and-- I promise you--- it seldom will be the one sitting in front of a backdrop looking at the camera with a smile.


Connecting through shared experiences.

My goal, whether I am photographing your family, your newborn or your soon-to-be graduate, is for your time with me to be more than just a photo session. I want it to be a memory.

It's nice to meet you.
