Meet Our Team
We are not just a team.... we are a family.
Michael McIntire is our leader, studio owner, coach, and photographer. His passion for photography began at the age of 14 and he has since seized every opportunity to improve that ability. His decision to become a full time photographer was solidified while spending two years as a missionary in Guatemala. Capturing images of the people and exotic locations intensified his love for the art of photography.
Michael pursued a degree in business management with the hopes of one day owning his own studio. After graduating from Utah Valley University, he moved to Cincinnati where he accepted a managerial position at The Kroger Company. He was soon recruited by a local photographer to help manage daily studio activities. Three years later, Michael was able to capture his dream when he and his father-in-law opened a studio in Loveland, OH. In May of 2010, Glutz Photography founder Robert Glutz retired from portrait photography and reached out to Kevin and Michael. McIntire Photography and Glutz Photography merged at that time and became the company it is today.
Whether it’s a family portrait or an advertising campaign, Michael loves working with clients to create stunning images to meet their vision.
Tenaha is a fine art photographer specializing in book and printmaking. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2013 from the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Architecture, Art & Planning program, where she focused on conceptual and documentary photography. She has exhibited her works in numerous galleries throughout Cincinnati, including the Contemporary Arts Center in 2009 and a larger installation for the Factory Square Fine Arts Festival/parProjects in 2011.
In the last few years, Tenaha has expanded her love for photography when she found that she really enjoyed portrait photography. She believes nothing compares to the joy of capturing a joyous moment with her client and sharing that experience with them through imagery.
Native to the area, she loves to donate her time and volunteers at local shelters and community improvement projects. One of her latest was the “Over-the-Rhine” beautification project working with “Keep Cincinnati Beautiful.”

Kevin Husted, spent 44 years in leadership roles for major retailers before retiring and switching gears to the photography business. Most of that time was spent helping his teams execute strategies and contributing to the overall productivity of the companies he worked for. In addition to his many accolades and certifications throughout the years, he has developed a passion for working with customers and leading his team members. So when the opportunity was presented to partner with Michael and take on the challenge of running a photography studio, it was a perfect fit.
