Hollie Smith Photography

About

Striving to capture the essence of my own child I took up photography 10 years ago. I started out with a top of the line point and shoot model from Minolta. I started getting compliments and requests right away. Over the years I upgraded, grew into and then out of Nikon SLR models until I arrived at my current full frame setup.

I truly enjoy each and every one of my subjects. I try to connect with them in some way, hold the little ones and talk to them, let them push the buttons on my camera, etc. I usually end up making friends with my clients, which I LOVE!

From my experiences I have found a way to get the very best out of every session and situation. I will calm your fears and help you feel your best! I love to be creative and help style my sessions. I also love ideas from my clients and their families, and I will do my best to accommodate.

Studio

The majority of my sessions take place on location, however I also have an in-home studio, office and furnished proofing/waiting area in my finished walk-out basement. This is also the location where you will view your photos and order your prints and products with my assistance.

Session Info

Please let me know if you need ideas or help with wardrobe selections, when in doubt bring a few choices. Please try not to be stressed. If babies are restless, toddlers are grumpy, etc. I totally understand, I have a family of my own and I will do my best to make them comfortable and bring out their personalities and smiles. If they need a break, no problem. I want you to LOVE your portraits so I will do my best to make everyone comfortable and get the best shots I can.

Design

I have been a graphic designer for over 20 years, a photographer for over 10 and creative my entire life. I offer custom design of birth announcements, graduation party invitations, save the date and holiday cards for my photography customers who purchase their cards from me.

Testimonials

Hollie, this is the second time we have used you to take our kids senior pictures. Sydney's pictures two years ago were absolutely stunning and the pictures you took of Drake left me emotional. I can't say how much I appreciate your willingness to travel to my Grandma's farm to take the pictures. These are likely to be the final pictures we have of the farm and I know my Grandma is smiling down knowing Drake selected the farm for her photos. Your artistic eye, style and professionalism is beyond compare. We have used other photographers in the past and none have provided the service we experienced with you. We are already talking about getting new family photos next year and we will definitely be calling you.

Hollie recently photographed our wedding this past September; my husband and I could not be more pleased with the results. Not only is she a talented photographer, but she goes above and beyond for her clients. She even put up with a silly dog and horse for our engagement session. Ha! If you are looking for a photographer with an eye for detail, creativity, and professionalism...look no further. I highly recommend Hollie. Hollie, you knocked it out of the park. Thank you!

Hollie photographed our wedding the beginning of this month. Christian and I couldn't be happier. She goes above and beyond to make sure she captures your special day. She makes it fun and exciting. Her work speaks for itself. She is creative, thinks outside the box and has an eye for detail. We can't wait to see more images from our wedding! We will for sure be back to her for other photographic needs. We can't say enough good things about her, we highly recommend her.
