Photographer: Brian K. Smith Hartland Michigan

Capturing the beauty of a given moment is what interests and motivates me as a photographer. Even after all of these years, I still get that feeling of anticipation in opening a photograph for the first time. It is like that feeling of a child when opening gifts on Christmas morning! Those are the images that I want to create. Photographs that communicate that feeling, the joy of that moment, that feeling for generations to come.

What is it that you want to capture? What photographs do you want to make? Do you want photographs that attempt to document the reality of what happened on that special day? It is up to you to decide what the memories will be. It is up to you to decide what is real. Photographer Arnold Newman stated “Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.” Your family memories are what is important, not just for today, but you decide what is real for generations to come.

My services are not constrained to a rigid schedule that you may find in an established brick and mortar photograph studios, nor the professionals that will deliver thousands of unfinished “snap shots” for you to sort through in your spare time. I will work with you to capture and create the photos that you and your family will enjoy for generations.

Besides portrait photography, I have experience in dance photography, wedding and event photography, and large group photography both inside and outside a photograph studio. Contact me so that we can discuss you photography requirements so we can get started creating the photographs for your memories!
