My Story

Hello there! I’m Brandi, your new photographer! I am married to my amazingly supportive husband of 13 years, work-at-home-Mom to 3 little lovies (Emma, Izzy & Liam), chicken owner and doggie Mom to our sweet boxer/pug mix, Maggie. There is never a dull moment in our home!

The studio is located in Midvale, Ohio. Midvale is approximately 40 minutes South of Canton and 10 minutes South of Dover, Ohio. I photograph outdoor and in-home sessions all around as well.

I believe in capturing moments as they happen. I’m inspired by real emotions and the connection you have with one another. I love photographing the newness of a fresh, new life as well as the joy filled connections of a family. Working with amazing people that want to have tons of fun and are not afraid of doing things a little bit different makes me happy!  Having an amazing time should always be the main goal; the pretty photos will be a bonus.

Getting spontaneous & natural emotions out of people requires trust, understanding, and patience. Having a real bond with my client families allows them to trust me, be relaxed & have fun around me; and believe me, relaxed people photograph beautifully!

Fun facts about me:

  • I’m pretty simple. I shoot with a Nikon D610 and an 85mm 1.8 , 35mm 1.8 and my Tamron 24-70.
  • Photographing newborns is my passion. They’re just so SQUISHY!
  • I love my chicken girls! We have 4 hens. You can visit them if you come to a studio session at my home. They love it if you feed them grass and I don’t mind if you grab some out of my yard.
  • My first camera was a Kodak when I was 5.
  • I am deathly afraid of spiders. And those things with hundreds of legs. And anything creepy crawly. Ew!
  • Favorite food: Japanese steak house anything! Oh and taco’s, burritos, chips & salsa…. anything Mexican food related. Yum!
  • I love watching HGTV and the DIY Network.
  • My family is my life and always come first.
  • Within the studio, I am a studio light photographer. Outside of the studio, I love incorporating natural light.
  • Chalkboard paint is taking over my house. On purpose. And I love it.
  • I am totally one of those crazy weird “oil” ladies and am obsessed with how they can change your life for the better.
  • My husband and I were married in the Smoky Mountains while we were on vacation.
  • My camera and I do volunteer work for Red Thread Sessions (adoption stories) and Capturing Hopes Photography (NICU babies). Both of these organizations are filled with photographers nation-wide offering their services for families in need.
