Mari Smith's passion for photography began when her parents gave her a Canon camera at age 14. But it was a second gift—a DSLR camera from her husband—that jump-started that passion from hobby to career. With Mari Smith Photography, she combines her two loves—family and photography—during on-location sessions where families strike poses at the places most meaningful to them. During her other sessions, Mari keeps kids and high-school seniors relaxed and engaged by drawing on her experience as a mother of three boys.
