When my daughter told me she wanted Birthday Portraits at the Smithville Mansion for her 8th birthday my heart stopped.
My little princess was growing up and she wanted to be followed around by a professional photographer while wearing a gorgeous dress and high heels. Good thing her Mama Bear is a professional photographer. I was honored to be able to photographer her, and make her laugh, of course I was crying behind the camera. We really did have a lot of fun though. She plans on having one large photo printed in a white matt so her friends can sign the matt at her birthday party. She is definitely a girl who knows what she wants! I couldn’t be more proud. The Smithville Mansion is gorgeous. It really is one of my favorite places to visit. It’s historic, and so well maintained. It’s perfectly set up for weddings, events, engagements and of course the casual photo session with a soon to be 8 year old!
If you would like to have your son or daughters Birthday Portraits at the Smithville Mansion, reach out to me today and schedule your session! Or if you are recently engaged, or going to propose (this is certainly a wonderful place to do it!), reach out to me as well! I would be more than happy to document all of your memories for you!
Photography for me, isn’t just about holding a camera and taking a photo. I have a serious passion for this. It’s my life. A day without my camera is like a day without air. I can’t breathe without it. It’s always on my side, always with me, and ready for any moment that will happen. When I get the opportunity to photography something special in someone life, or lives, I am just so humbled and honored to be the person that you trust to capture and create these moments for you. As for my daughter, she put all of her trust into me, that I would be able to document her Birthday Portraits at the Smithville Mansion exactly the way she always dreamt of, and better. That is how everyone should think when they hire a professional. Dreams become real life, and real life can be preserved. These pieces are our history, they are our legacy, and one day our children will hang on to these memories, and pass them down to their own. Don’t just pass these moments by, hold them by the hand, and allow me to capture your legacy.
