Victoria Campbell Photography Blog bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    Welcome to my blog. This is MY WORLD. I will include some of my personal photos along with my client photos. I hope you enjoy because it is my passion to capture your true style and personality in every photo. I enjoy the unique locations with an urban flair for a retro, classy, and edgy feel to turn your photos into art.
    I may not be the photographer for everyone so please feel free to look over my style to see if I fit your photography needs. As an artist I am still learning and growing and I have no limits...My MIND never turns off when it comes to creating...I am the FIRST to admit I get behind with this blog...but let me reassure you its because I am busy doing what I do best...taking pictures.

Happy Easter!

There is one thing I can say about this Easter is that it crept up on me…it came and went…a little too quickly if you ask me…and I missed so many family members. This was the first Easter that so many family members weren’t here. Every year we have Easter with our 5 kids (and […]

Chasing the Light…in rain?

One thing I don’t think I even thought about with my new task was how would I find the light in this unpredictable Ohio weather…light is all around me…I just have to find the source…I think my next light source will be by candle light or a low interior light and push my creativity even farther…but since […]

The Campbell Sisters

Just to get some background history for these two sisters I need to mention I had a door close on my life and for years kept wanting to look at that closed door to later realize I was not doing myself any favors for me or for my children. I have learned after one door […]

New Family Members

It is not everyday you get new family members… pets that is.  My daughter falls in love with each and every hamster she get…unfortunately they never last longer than a year and a half at the most!  Ugh…in the beginning it was tough to see her saddness when she lost one…but love the fact when […]

Friends for Life ~ Children Photography

Many children have a favorite stuffed bunny, bear, monkey, or puppy or even a blanket they adore, and bring almost everywhere.  God forbid this object gets lost or left at home. I have personally run out to pick up “Bunny” late at night because somehow it was “forgotten”…can’t even imagine how when these little “Friends […]

The Olivia Act!

I cannot stop grieving over the recent tragedy in Connecticut. I can’t do much, but I’d like to do what I can…. The Olivia Act, named after one of the children killed in Newtown, was started by a photographer who wishes to be anonymous. Olivia’s family had family pictures taken a short time before she […]

I Always Need to be Inspired…

Here I am with the boredom of January. Not because of nothing to do or no places to go, but because this is the month that greets us photographers with fear…those photographers who have just recuperated from a busy season are hoping that 2013 will be good to us and they will persist to flourish […]

Hello New Year – Happy 2013

It is officially the first day of 2013 and I’m sitting on my chair listening to “The Hangover” in the background listening to Greg and Tyler chuckle wishing all the kids were home with us.

The Glowing “Mom-to-be”
