Hey there! My name is Brooke and I'm the heart and soul behind Brooke Townsend Photography. I've been doing this photography thing for 12 years now running my business solo since 2009. I'm an Ohio native. Born and bred. But my heart takes me all over the world. (Hoping to one day say I've touched all 7 continents - 2 down!)

I'm married to a bearded Englishman named Paul who is also my high school sweetheart. And we actually met playing a video game when we were teenagers and dated long distance across the ocean for nearly 4 years (ask me about that one sometime!). We have a dog named Ben Ten Kenobi and a handsome, fiery son named Leo who made his debut in April of 2016. But we still refer to Ben as our first born.

In my down time I'm usually found reading, writing, or playing video games embracing my introvert self. But if I'm in the mood to also be my outer extrovert, you might see me doing crazy things like jumping out of airplanes, going for motorcycle rides, or packing my bags for another adventure somewhere. Because really, you only live once.

I’m a lover of fried chicken and I’m pretty sure my soul mate is actually pasta. I can’t be home without a candle being lit and still have a blankie that is required for couch cuddles. But I LIVE for summer storms, magical light, and the night sky and have been known to stop everything I’m doing to chase after any of those.
