Ben + Phoenix

These two are some of the smartest and hardworking people I’ve met in my time at Ohio University. Phoenix just graduated with her Bachelors of Science in Psychology, and Ben got his second degree from OU, a Masters of Education. They also worked together with me this year on the Vagina Monologues, and  were so much fun to shoot. The love and support they have for each other has me SHOOK. Congratulations, B + P!

Quinn: Strength in Body, Mind, and Spirit

I love strong women. Strength (and character) are built through hardships, and obstacles to be overcome. Quinn Hilton, 20,  experiences the pain of developing every day. She will be competing in her first National Physique Committee competition this October. I was thrilled that she allowed me to photograph the strength, and the beauty in strength she has acquired over her last year of training.

In my desire to present more of my photography on the blog – I’m sharing a sneak peak of some of my favorites from my shoot with her:

Thank you Quinn – best of luck to you at your show! If you’d like to follow Quinn in her fitness journey, she can be found on Instagram @hilton13_colts. For booking inquiries, please contact me via!

-till next time! Niara
