Hi! I'm Kelley Brubaker, the woman behind Broken Road Images! Welcome to my world!
I was raised to not brag. 🤦 So, this section on my website is by far the hardest for me to write.
Where should I start? How about a few fun facts about me?
I'm obsessed with Friends reruns! I watched every episode in real time (or on my VCR if I had other plans on a Thursday night) when the show first aired, but the episodes are timeless and classic. I love that I can pull up any episode at will on Netflix! Isn't that "kick you in the crotch, spit on your neck fantastic"?!
Amazon Prime is my kryptonite!
I have a handful of favorite movies that I can never pass up watching when they are on TV: Father of the Bride, A Christmas Story, When Harry Met Sally, Top Gun, Dirty Dancing, any John Hughes movies from the 80s, The Devil Wears Prada, and Pretty Woman.
No matter what I'm doing or where I am, there are a few songs that always (happily) stop me in my tracks: In My Life (Beatles), Good Riddance (Green Day), just about every song from Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Matchbox 20 or Nickleback 😳, and, of course, Bless This Broken Road (Rascal Flatts).
What else? I am a lifelong resident of Northeast Ohio. I was raised in Doylestown, Ohio, went to college at the University of Akron, but I now call Bath, Ohio my home.
Although I have lived in Northeast Ohio my entire life, I love to travel to meet clients for on location shoots because I always end up discovering new and amazing places!
My photography studio began with a focus on nature and still life photography, but I have since expanded my portfolio to include portraits, high school seniors, events and real estate.
My favorite portraits are candid and posed-to-not-look-posed shots, and I love when fur babies are included in sessions!
I am honored when I am asked to capture memories at special occasions like baby showers, pumpkin picking, Christmas tree cutting, and gender reveals!
I am a member of Bath Business Association, a local group of business owners who work or reside in Bath, Ohio, and I volunteer with the PTA at my girls' schools.
When not working or spending time with my family, I relax by crafting, running, practicing yoga, hiking, kayaking, and practicing Taekwondo--watch out! I'm almost a Black Belt!! Photographs are the memories of our lives!
Let me capture your moments that you will treasure for a lifetime!
