A little boy and his momma | Cleveland Family Photographer Tess Smith Photography

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


I'm nearing the end of my first year of taking pictures "professionally". I've learned SO much during this first year and I have so much left to learn. Photography has been such a blessing to me. It's given me the chance to express myself creatively, and it's gotten me in touch with so many old friends and has given me the chance to meet so many new friends. I'm thankful for all the memories I was able to capture for my clients. I truly hope you enjoyed your photo's and that I was able to give you something to cherish that wasn't exactly a cookie cutter type of image. It was my goal to capture you as you. To capture the joy in your face while you watch your children laugh, to capture the love you share as a family, or as a couple without having to ask you to say cheese and stare directly into my lens.
I have some great things to introduce next spring. I'm taking this winter off to welcome our third child into our family. With my due date quickly approaching I'm taking the next few weeks (or days as it may be) to enjoy with my family of 4 before it becomes a family of 5. Thank you for all the amazing memories and I look forward to capturing your families as they grow.
