Your Cleveland + Columbus Portrait Photographer

Capturing authenticity in every frame

Families, seniors, newborns, and couples...

One of the things I hear most after sessions is, "Whew, that wasn't painful.... in fact it was fun!"

That's how it should be! With over 13 years of experience I have learned the art of genuine interaction with my clients, whether we just met or have been friends since kindergarten. Kids (and even husbands!) have told me again and again that they actually enjoyed their session.

Creating a comfortable and casual space for you so that you are able to be truly present and authentic in your photos is my number one goal.

It's a true gift to meet each one of my clients and create art together. Let's start the conversation now. To message me click on the "Let's talk!" button below.



"Sonya has photographed our family (immediate and extended) many times over the years. She is kind, easy-going, and great with little kids, so the shoots are a lot of fun. She’s also a true artist; her work is always creative and beautiful. I would recommend her to anyone without reservation." -Alex T.

"Every session with Sonya has resulted in endless photos that we love, it's always too difficult to choose a favorite." -Robert W.

"Sonya was a dream to work with as a photographer. Despite feeling a little anxious about getting photos done, she immediately set my husband and me at ease and made my kids laugh. She was so gentle and sweet with my newborn. Somehow she was able to take genuine photos that capture who we truly are while simultaneously making us look really good! I can't wait to get more family photos done with her in the future." -Sarah K.
