We were contacted by Daniel a while back to schedule a session. When I started asking him details about the session I started to get super excited. They were coming to the beach to celebrate Taylor’s birthday. As part of her birthday gift he wanted to have pictures made of them. What she didn’t know was he had a lot more planned than just having a few pictures made. He planned on proposing and wanted us to capture the whole thing. So we devised a cue that he would use to know when it was time… and everything went just as planned. It was perfect and she was SO surprised! It was obvious how in love the two of them were and we were so honored to be there for their special moment! We shared a few pictures on our fb page at Daniel’s request the same day as the engagement so that he could share with their family and friends. Here are those along with a few more from that afternoon!
Happy New Year! We hope that each of you had a fabulous Christmas! One of my many new years resolutions is to keep our blog more up to date! I apologize we have stayed behind on it! Blogging is new to us, and I’m hoping that you’ll bear with us as we learn what we’re doing!
January marks one year that we’ve been in business. We have been so abundantly blessed by our customers over the past year. On facebook I did a year in review with pictures. It was so exciting to go back to some of our favorite moments throughout the year. You can view that post here.
2014 was full of great memories and I am excited to see what lies ahead in 2015! It will be an exciting time in the Smith House! In case you missed it we had a big announcement I made back in November.
We will be adding a new addition to our family in July! We are super excited and can’t wait for our newest blessing. This will not affect my ability to schedule sessions so please do not let this stop you from getting on our calendar!
Christmas was super busy in the studio with lots of little ones coming through! Here are a few of our favorites from those sessions!
The week of Christmas we had the opportunity to photograph a returning customer. I had the pleasure of photographing Bonnie and Paul’s wedding back in July. If you missed that post, click here to see images from their beautiful day! Bonnie’s family hadn’t been able to have everyone together in many years and they wanted pictures to celebrate their reunion! The only time that everyone could get together was 1pm and all pictures were done at the beach house they were staying at and over on the beach at Cherry Grove. I was a nervous wreck to say the least as I knew the sun would be an evil beast to contend with. It was a beautiful SUNNY day with gorgeous weather and despite the sun glaring from above we were able to capture some great shots of this beautiful family!
We have a sweet squishy newborn coming to the studio soon! So stay tuned for pictures from her session!
Also…. our local newspaper the Brunswick Beacon is doing a Best in Brunswick County contest! Will you take a few moments and complete the survey and vote for us as best photographer in Brunswick County! If you fill out 50% of the survey you will be eligible for $200! You can go to the survey here!
Meet Harrison, just 12 days new! Remember the beautiful mommy we met just 13 days ago? Less than 24 hours from when we took her maternity pictures Mr. Harrison made his debut! His big brother and gorgeous mommy may have jumped in for one or two of the pictures. (And a side note, I’m pretty sure I have the most awesome father in law ever for making this boat for me!!)
We’re going to do something we don’t normally do… This beautiful girl is Adam’s cousin. We were going to upload her gallery to our private page, but then figured we’d just share them all with you 🙂 Not all of her black and white pictures are being shared. With any session we do, we usually offer b&w as well as color finishes on each image. Some of these you have already seen in a sneak Peek that we did the day we did the shoot. Hope everyone is enjoying their week! Seniors, there is still time to schedule your senior pictures with us!
