Local photographer Tabitha Brennenstuhl, owner of Burning Chair Photography, is hosting a spring mini-session on Saturday March 5 for children-only portraits. In addition to the mini sessions hosted by Burning Chair Photography, there will be a second day of mini-sessions hosted by Sonja B. Photography on Saturday March 12. Burning Chair Photography and Sonja B. Photography share a studio on Spring Grove Avenue on the west side of downtown Cincinnati.
Brennenstuhl, a Fort Thomas resident, is the only photographer who has successfully and consistently gotten all three of my children to smile for studio photos. Additionally, amongst young Fort Thomas families, her mini-sessions have become a hot-ticket item. Many may remember the incredibly popular (and incredibly photogenic) winter sessions in the woods in front of an airstream trailer or last year’s spring session with live baby chicks and bunnies.
However, in addition to her outdoor portrait sessions, she also does incredible studio work. Her studio, which she shares with Sonja McGill (owner of Sonja B Photography), has incredible natural light streaming in through the converted warehouse windows. Brennenstuhl and McGill have transformed the space into two different whimsical springtime backdrops. One is a cloud-like dream with paper raindrops, grass, and giant cotton-ball clouds, a scene that looks intentionally cartoonish, but like a child’s dream. The second (which was still under construction at the time of my visit) is a floral wall with oversized (handmade) flowers adorning a wooden backdrop.

The mini-sessions last fifteen minutes and cost $150 which gives you rights to approximately 10 final retouched images with both an online gallery and printing rights. Fifteen minutes is actually the perfect length of time when working with children (and these shoots are reserved just for children from the same family). Families with children too young to sit on their own can still participate although the poses may be more limited.
So, don’t miss out on these upcoming studio mini-sessions. The studio is at 2530 Spring Grove Avenue, Cincinnati, OH (very near the Union Terminal Museum) and is quite easy to find with street parking right out front. For more information or to sign up for a mini-session on March 5 (and hurry as many slots are already booked), visit Burning Chair Photography’s website or email Brennenstuhl at Tabitha@burningchairstudios.com.
