I am a Columbus based photographer and welcome to my blog.

I love to photograph babies in the tummy, babies out of the tummy, kids being good, kids being bad, kids with special needs, kids with fur, couples in love, families being themselves and seniors in between text messages :)

I have a fun and carefree style that I think you will be very comfortable with. Of course I love to take the classic picture where everyone is looking at the camera with a perfect smile but what I really love to catch is the real "in between" moments. The candid moments that you will cherish forever.

This is my photo blog where I will share favorite images from recent sessions and blab about my interests and family.

Thanks for visiting my site and taking a look. I really appreciate it. 

THE BECKLEY FAMILY | columbus, ohio family photographer

I love it when I get to tell a story. Jennifer hired me because she wanted to capture some last shots of their cute little family in their first house. They are moving out of state to better jobs and better schedules. One of those heavy bittersweet decisions to do what is best for your family. That takes guts. Period.


I got some magical shots with this family. Images that I am super happy with – ones that I can see BIG. And big is not 8×10 people! Big is at least 16×20:) I especially love this one …img_5345bw-blogthis is nice…img_5373-blog

Holy Christmas card (if you can’t get around to the pic in front of the tree with red eye)! Did I just say that? I’m terrible. You might be done by Christmas though because you have to send out “we’ve moved” cards. Blech. You should make it “we’ve moved – here’s our Christmas card in June because you aren’t getting anything else this year” card. img_5385-blog

Love the feet shots…img_5395-blog


Best dog in the UNIVERSE. Makes all other dogs look like fools. Brian would say “heel” and it would promptly sit at attention right next to his leg. It would also do the perfect perky ears look if you talked dog to him.untitled-22


I’m so sad you are moving for selfish reasons. You were such a great family to photograph! I hate it that I don’t get to watch Herbie grow up:( If you are ever back in Columbus….
