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

The City of Dayton has a program where they highlight people, organizations and companies who they think make Dayton a better place. It’s called Dayton Originals.

Location Business Headshot

I did a nice photo job for Jason Hoadley of StarWash Mobile Auto Detailing. www.StarWashdetailing.com He wanted a nice professional headshot of himself for his business. He was originally thinking a studio photograph but I said because of what he does, details cars, the photograph should be of him in front of a house and/or with his mobile detailing vehicle. (His Truck) So we went out on a nice February day, it was at least 18 degrees, and did a series of photographs. He’s planning ahead for spring when everyone will want nice clean cars. He was thrilled with how well the photographs turned out. So if you want professional head shots, either in the studio or out at your business call me 937-298-6776. I have been helping people with their professional image with business portraits here in the Miami Valley, Dayton, Ohio for many years. I can help you with your next project whether it’s one person or a 100 person law firm.

First Year Baby Photography

I wanted to show off the album for latest graduate of my Littlest Angels first year baby plan program. I had a really good time photographing Maci this past year. This is the second child I had the privilege to photograph from the Patterson family. I photographed their son a couple years ago. In the middle of the year we even went to Cox Arboretum to do family portraits. During my Littlest Angel First Year Baby program I photograph each baby four time at 3 months, six months, nine months and 12 months. The parents receive a finished baby panel at the end of the year. The program only costs $59.00 to start. Call us at 937-298-6776 before your child is three months old.
