Ritual Imagery


Hi! I'm Maddie and I take photos for a living!

Creating a real experience is what's most important to me. I specialize in lifestyle + photojournalistic portraiture, as well as boudoir imagery and strive to embody my work in an organic way.


My photography journey began about 10 years ago, when I learned how to process film. Later down the road I studied Photography & Business at The University of Akron and graduated in 2017. I have been operating professionally as a photographer for about 4 years - in that time I have been published, travelled a bunch, and became co-owner of a beautiful studio called Akron Photo Society. When my camera's not in my hands you can catch me hanging out with my cat Minerva watching spooky movies, exploring the outdoors & all things abandoned (and I can quote The Office + like it's my job). My profession & studio mean the entire world to me, and being able to create & capture real moments with others is my jam. Let's chat about your next photo experience - head over to my contact section to send me a message!
