Charli Transue – Akron, Ohio Family Photographer Recommended by AOM

Pictures to me are like bottling my kids’ special moments in a jar of memories. With kids growing up too quickly, I like to open the jar every now and then and it never fails to make me smile.

Being the family photographer myself,  the pictures I have in my collection are often without me.  I was very ecstatic when my family was given the opportunity to have our family pictures taken by a professional Akron, Ohio area photographer, Charli Transue.

Who is Charli Transue?

Charlie Transue is married to a Marine and a mom of two. Charli was born and raised in California, went to a school of photography in San Diego, then moved to Ohio to be closer to her husband’s side of family.

Her passion for photography had started at her young age. When Charli became a mom, this was when her love for photography and skills were fully maximized.  Just like many mothers out there, Charli loves capturing her children and family’s beautiful moments in photographs.

Charli started her photography business in Ohio in 2009.   She specializes in outdoor, studio and natural light photography and is very passionate about capturing life’s special moments in pictures.  In 2012, Charli Transue Photography proudly announced that it is now a member of the Highland Square Neighborhood Association.  Charli is very excited to work and help the Highland Square neighborhood to become a cultural landmark spot in Akron, Ohio.

Photo Session with Charli Transue Akron, Ohio Photographer

As much as I love studio photos, outdoor pictures are my favorite.  I love natural lights and pictures taken in nature, where kids being themselves not feeling pressured and often not knowing they are being photographed.

I was so glad Charli agreed to meet us at our favorite park, Seiberling Nature Realm as location of our Akron, Ohio photo shoot.  I can’t say enough about how comfortable my family felt during the photo session.  It felt like we had known Charli for a long time.  Our photo session was filled with laughter, smiles, and joy just being around nature and having Charli as our photographer.

Charli was so flexible and patient during the photo shoot.  There are a few places in the park that we would love to get our pictures taken at. The places that my family often stop and spend time together during our leisure.  We wanted to capture the places and family moment into photographs.

Don’t you love the catch light in his eyes! Charli is the expert of natural lighting.

Charli, being a mom herself, is also natural when it comes to dealing with little kids.  My son, J as an eight year old boy, it is not always easy having to pose and smile to a stranger.  However, J, clicked right away when he met Charli for the first time.  Up to now, he still remembers Miss Charli and her pink iPad.

My 8-year-old felt comfortable posing for Miss Charli.

My husband and I even had a photo taken of just the two of us. This is a rare picture in my collection.
