Frakes Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to my world!

    YUP! I'm a mom and I'm totin' my camera and I'm PROUD of it!! After years of creating and learning and recreating and getting ahead of technology so I could create, learn and create some more, I found myself ready to branch out into a business where I could share my creativity with others. Just consider me obsessed...a passionate creative who is completely obsessed with the notion that beauty is alive and I have only to peek through my lens to see it...everywhere and in everyone!!
    I hope to see you here often as I do my best to post new content weekly or more!! You won't want to miss the new categories I have planned such as photography tips for hip moms (you're a hip mom whether you know it or not!) and local small business features. Lots of new plans are in the mix and you won't want to miss a single post!
    Be sure to like me on facebook for even more fun updates and photos and a (soon to come) behind the scenes look at what I do...or don't

Out on the Town

It was a cold, EARLY morning shoot with my man Clay, but he was somehow able to make it look like a warm summer day, lol!  We had an absolute BLAST roaming around downtown Cleveland and exploring empty buildings.  We got so many crazy awesome pictures that I’m sure I’ll have to post more when […]

Smile! This is your SENIOR YEAR!

It’s that magical time of life for certain teens that ALL kids eventually start dreaming about.  Just saying these two words sends chills down their backs and brings a bounce to their step…and don’t forget that unmistakable twinkle of the eye!!  Say the words yourself and undoubtedly a flood of warm fuzzy memories will come […]

Chris and Kami…love finds a home

Words cannot even begin to describe the unleashed, abandoned, creative and blissful day that I had with Chris and Kami on Saturday! Although I don’t typically advertise myself as a wedding photographer, there will be those choice few circumstances that I just cannot say no to, simply because it just feels right! THIS is one […]
