I have a confession to make. Local photographer does a hilarious thing with family photos!

Alright. I have to share something with you that I’ve started randomly asking my families to let me do.

It’s something that is compleatly silly, there is no reason for it. It just simply brings me joy and I’m really loving this little project.

Like really, every time I do one of these portraits it makes me laugh AND makes my clients laugh too.

So what am I doing exactley that is putting a guaranteed smile on your face?

Its super simple… I’m switching the heads of parents and their kids.

Just take a look below

Doesn’t that just make you want to laugh a little? There is something so innocent and yet so funny about it. It kind of makes me think of freaky friday but on a whole different level.

I may even start doing couple swaps. I think that will have an equally hilarious outcome. Actually, if that idea strikes you a funny and you want to participate, send me a message!

Check out how I swap heads below:

What is a Dream Session and how do I book one? Cincinnati Photographer

What is a Dream Session and how do I book one? Cincinnati Photographer

Dream Sessions are very in depth when you get down to it. I want every aspect of what you want to be true to detail and look as realistic as I can possibly get it. This may mean that I send out a dress to be custom made for you and the best part is 80% of the costumes I make, you get to keep after! Why? Because I don't want to reuse your specially made costume on someone else's shoot. Each one is unique as you are! 

What it's like to play a card game with.... Yourself? Cincinnati Photographer takes selfies to a new level.

I always have these weird ideas for images that I never really get the chance/make time to do. Things like me lounging in my cereal bowl full of fruit loops floating on a fun unicorn float just enjoying the day or me skydiving with my cats- because I know they would enjoy it ;).

I literally have a huge list of these things ready to go at any time I am ready to take them. I recently decided I needed to start prioritizing them. Mostly for myself because I need a creative outlet for the things that I keep stored in my head. 

This week I chose to do one of those images. 

Basically I wanted to have a card game with myself but each self was reflective of an emotion I would have while playing the game. 

I set my camera up on a tripod and I made sure it was framed to my table. The hard part about this image was that I needed to see every face in it.  So I needed to be careful of the positioning of myself in each shot. 

I also wanted to make sure I was wearing different clothing each time so in-between each shot, I'd grab a different outfit and do a quick change.

(Fun story- the apartment maintenance guys showed up in the middle of this and I had to put a quick random outfit on. I feel like you always get a knock on the door when your not fully clothed.  Check the video and you can see them pop in for a sec. Gotta love apartment life haha! ) 

The image itself is made up of 4 different shots, one for each chair of the table.  It's pretty obvious who's winning the game, or at least dominating that round in the image but we also have a version of me that feels cheated, an playful/overzelus one that is about to throw her cards and one who thinks it's funny.  I think it pretty much sums up my competitive nature haha. 


Now I know what it would be like to play a card game with myself. I have to say it would be a fun time and very entertaining.
