About Me

I’m Skyeler, and I’m so glad you are here!  I’m a Portrait and Lifestyle photographer based in the Dayton Ohio area.  Natural light is my thing, so you’ll usually see me shooting under those blue skies looking for that soft open shade or perfect sunbeam.  I love Jesus.   Capturing what He has created through the camera is one of my favorite things – I want to make you feel like the beautiful and special creation that you are.

I love it when you come back and tell me, “I didn’t even know you were taking that picture!”  Why? Because that means you were too busy being you to even notice the camera.   That’s the kind of atmosphere we want to create during our photoshoot.  I want to have fun and laugh with you.  Photography does not have to be a painful experience.  I’ll guide you until you start to feel confident or beautiful.
If you’re with someone, talk with them, dance with them, laugh with them.  Remember, you’re here to take pictures with them because you love them.  Let that show!  We want to capture these feelings, or better yet, create a new memory.
Is it just you? Are you worried about how to look effortless and genuine while staring into a camera? Talk to me while I’m taking your picture or in between smiles. I’ll shoot around it, because I want to get to know you.  Tell me what your goals are, what makes you laugh, what your favorite television shows are – tell me what you are passionate about and let your face light up. I’ll see that, and so will the camera.

I love my people, and I love our memories.  I’m a fan of our roadtrips with the windows down, late night board games, and afternoon conversations over tea & coffee.  If an inside joke comes out of it we can call it a success and a fun time.  I don’t know who or what you love (hint: I’d like to!) but you have people, you have memories, and you have a story that I cannot wait to tell.  Who is it that comes to mind when you’re talking about “your people?”   These are the ones who are part of your life and the times you want to remember.  I want to enter into your world and capture it for you.  It doesn’t have to be a “typical” shoot to be important to you – bring along your people, and we’ll take and make some memories.
