Daphne Photo Studio » Cincinnati wedding & portrait photography

meet me

Hello and welcome to Daphne Photo Studio! I am a lifestyle photographer based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Along with shooting portraits and a limited number of weddings each year, I shoot births and make up 1/2 of the team of Beautiful Beginnings Birth Photography. This site serves as a portfolio of my portrait sessions & weddings, but please feel free to check out the birth site to get your fix of fresh baby cuteness.

My style is very unobtrusive – I like to capture interactions and emotions as they happen naturally rather than posing you this way and that. Other than capturing the best photos possible, my goal is for everyone involved to have a blast. All of my sessions take place “on-location” wherever you feel most comfortable – whether that be at your favorite park, urban setting, or in your living room.

Thank you so much for stopping by and please feel free to check out my most recent work on the blog and/or my business Facebook page.

a little background…

Upon receiving my BFA in photography, I wasn’t quite sure what role photography would play in my life at that point. Growing up with a brother who is developmentally delayed instilled in me a heart for individuals with special needs, and that is what led me to take a job working in that field. I will forever cherish the time I spent getting to know all of the amazing people I had the pleasure of working with. I am certain they taught me so much more than I could ever teach them!

I learned how joy exists in the simplest forms, how beauty can be seen in each and every person, and how every day should be celebrated rather than taken for granted. During this time, I grew to love the relational aspect of working one-on-one with people and something inside of me clicked. I realized I could still help people and build lasting relationships while pursuing the artistic outlet and passion I spent my high school and college years immersed in.

That, in a nutshell, is the course of events that inspired me start Daphne Photo Studio in 2007 🙂
