Family Portraits

“I want to say that Mr. Cleary was a doll, he was very understanding about my requests and the fact I did not have all the things I needed for the sitting, he was fine with that so I would like to thank him for his time, not to mention the beautiful pictures he took of my family, children and grand kids. Again thank you.”
Judy McCullah, Dayton, Ohio

High School Senior Portraits

“Mr. Cleary, you did a wonderful job photographing my daughter Alexa. She was absolutely at ease and totally enjoyed her shoot. You went over and above the call of duty. I will be telling everyone about your services for the photos, they are absolutely gorgeous. The price of the photos is much more reasonable than any other I have encountered. I do want to thank you again and plan on using your services again in the future.”
Sandy DeHaven, Dayton, Ohio

Baby Portraits

"The photographs Dan has given us have always been beautiful. It is amazing just how good they really are. We did the first year baby plan with Dan and at MaKayla’s 9 month session, she wasn’t in a good mood so we thought there would only be 1 or 2 decent photographs, but there were so many really great shots that we couldn’t believe it. Dan is a true artist, he really makes children feel comfortable. I guess that’s why he always gets such good expressions and that’s why we like him so much.”
Tyler & Monica Kingdom, Springboro, Ohio

 

Business Photography

"It's a major endeavor to redesign a business website and especially challenging when it's for a law firm with hundreds of lawyers. We selected Dan because of his experience, photographic style and attention to detail. Dan did an excellent job on the photographs and in managing the project to completion."

Ellen Geron, Regional Growth Manager, Thompson Hine LLP

New Graduate for Little Miracles 1st Year Baby Photography

One of my favorite clients just sent me a message and I wanted to share it. They adopted a two year old boy from Russia and want me to photograph him like I had done with their other two children, even though he wasn’t a baby. Here was their message to me.

“Dan,

Thank you again for taking Liam’s photos. It is so nice to see matching photos of all the kids on the wall together. Thank you also for the disc and the “bonus” surprise you put on there! We appreciate your talent and your care for us and our family. We will continue to spread the word about you.

Tim and Anya”

That’s why I love my job so much.

Executive Portraits at Law Firm

I spent two weeks at Thompson Hine law firm in Miamisburg, Ohio photographing all the attorneys and support staff for their new web site. There were 56 executives total. Here are a few examples. All the business photographs were taken at their office conference room. I brought in a white background and all my studio light equipment to make the process convenient for all the busy lawyers.  I worked closely with Thompson Hine corporate office to make sure all the photographs were consistent across all their offices. After the photography every person choose their favorite image and then I did finish retouching on all the executive portraits.   I think they turned out great. Call Dan Cleary of Cleary Creative Photography of Kettering, Ohio 937-298-6776 to talk about your ideas and projects.
