I hate having my picture taken…
Boy, we kinda do too! But don’t worry! We’ll take a few minutes when you get to the studio to talk about the look you’re going for and take it from there. We go over clothing and pick the best background to suit you. We’ll go over easy tips on how to stand to look your best.  We have bluetooth speakers perfect for your favorite playlist.

When/how will I see & select my photos?
You’ll select your images right after your photoshoot, as many as you like, $100 per image for our Authentic edit and rights for regular usage.  Then we edit your chosen images and deliver via dropbox usually 24-48 hours later. Rush services are available too.

What our Clients Say

  • I am proud to recommend Malinda to you - I always found her work, character and professionalism most indispensable. She is an energetic and enthusiastic person who is truly dedicated to her craft and helping people achieve their best.
    Shawn Maus
    Coney Island
  • Malinda did an amazing job on a recent photo shoot where we had a tight deadline. She was setup and ready to roll when we needed her, and was able to get our photo project done and framed just in time for a big event. Every aspect of her service was professional, creative, and exceptional. I highly recommend Malinda if you need a photographer who you can trust to do a great job.
    Allison Kulage
  • Malinda has been a reliable and trusted photojournalist of multiple fire and police departments in the Greater Cincinnati area for years. She has a unique ability to capture the raw emotion and feelings of emergency responders. Her professionalism and abilities as an artist convinced me to have her shoot my son's senior portraits as well as my family's.
    Steve Conn
    District Chief
    Colerain Fire Dept
  • Malinda is a delight to work with. We recently hired Malinda to shoot video and photos of the winner of our small business contest. Malinda's candid photos of the scene were topnotch, and she's also very discreet and sensitive in delicate situations. (We were surprising our contest winner, so it was an unpredictable situation that turned out well.) I highly recommend Malinda for photography and video shooting.
    US Bank
  • Malinda has taken numerous still shots for Wyoming Fire-EMS. She consistently captures the most amazing shots that truly describes the fire service and shows the dedication of these men and women. I would recommend hiring Malinda for action shots, organizational banquets/dinners, events/weddings, as well as individual/family portrait photography. Malinda knows how to produce top quality photographs!
    Wyoming Fire & EMS
  • I am glad to highly recommend Glenn Hartong. I worked with him on a documentary for PBS I was producing and directing about Cincinnati's District 3 Police Station, the first Net Zero Energy police station in the United States. Glenn's former training as a journalist serves him well and means he is always thinking about the storytelling as he's shooting. Glenn has a wonderful eye!
    Laure Quinlivan
    LQ Consulting
  • Glenn is, quite simply, one of the best visual storytellers around. Whether making pictures with his camera or through videography, he understands how to weave a compelling tale. He earns the trust of his subjects and conducts himself with the utmost professionalism. He is a joy to work with and truly a good person. You can't go wrong collaborating with Glenn.
