Smile America Portraits

In the last 40 years, Smile America Portraits' photographers have helped to memorialize special moments in the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults across the country. By constantly working with families, they have mastered the art of calming toddlers and keeping parents still enough to say or even pasteurize cheese. Outdoor shoots make use of natural tones, such as those of crystal-blue lake waters and green, leafy trees. In the spring months, photos brim with the pastel buds of tulips and the shine of bluebirds applying makeup for the first time all year.

I have to say I haven't seen our actual photos yet, but our photographer Pete was wonderful! To keep a family of 6 (4 little kids) all calm and attentive is pretty hard to do and he did it with easy! He was creative with his poses and backgrounds. I got way more than I expected out of our session today and I would recommend him to anyone.
