Your Photographer...

Wendy is the owner of Five Eleven Photography and a professional newborn and family photographer based out of both Cleveland and Columbus, OH.  She has been photographing memories and milestones for her clients for 7 years.  Wendy is best known for her use of color and creativity with sets in her studio sessions, making the colors of the outdoors come to life and sweet family moments, and capturing those genuine smiles we all want to remember our children having.  With over 300 backdrops and many more props, you will rarely see two sets looking the same.  Wendy customizes each session to the clients needs and her extensive studio backdrop and prop collection helps take some of the expense off the client by providing accessories and outfits for newborns through age 2+. 

We specialize in Newborn, Child, Senior and Family portraits.  We believe photography is more than just a "photo". It is a permanent reminder of important events, loving family, and lasting memories! 

Although we are based out of Northeast and Central Ohio we are always willing to travel to you for added fees! Contact us for details on this.


"I am a single Mom to 3 beautiful children.  In my spare time (which is rare with running a business and having 3 small children!) I love to workout - really love Crossfit, love to eat tacos or any other yummy food that isn't good for you, shop on Amazon and listen to music.  You will always find music playing as background noise in my studio.  I am often asked how I got started with photography.  Prior to photography I used to use my love of color and creativity designing and creating hats for little ones up to adults.  Though it was a very successful business, through it, I realized how challenging it was to send my products off to be photographed for my website so I decided to teach myself how to photograph my own children in the hats I was creating.  It was clear to me that I had a natural talent of being behind the camera and capturing special moments.  I knew I had to give up on one dream to go for another.  I am self taught and so thrilled to be able to do what I love - which is making children laugh (I am a self proclaimed part time clown during my sessions) and providing such timeless memories for families."
