Hi, I'm Dave Likes.
Documenting a child's life growing up though the lens of my camera, I still get a little emotional when doing their high school senior (or family) picture all these years later!
I'm not your typically photographer for hire. To me it is about a life long relationship as many of my clients were first my close friends. Because of that I worked extra hard to learn all I could about portrait photography, studying with top instructors in the field.
Having had the loss of my father some years ago, I'm grateful that I made several professional portraits of him to remember him by! And therefore know how important photographs can be. I want to capture those memories for you and others as well!
I like exercising, eating right, (sometimes!) going to the driving range and hanging out with my friends.
Trained in Engineering and Automotive Technology, I left a corporate job with Toyota Motor Distributors to pursue my dream of having my own business. After 8 years of doing Weddings, I switched to Portraits specializing In Family Portraits. I'm excited to have become a Certified Professional Photographer in 2014.
I feel I have a unique style as I use the family home or outside location as a backdrop. Please give me a call so I can answer any questions you might have? Thanks! (513) 445-9535
