About Me?

Christ follower, husband, father, photographer, story teller.

Greetings! I'm Jay Smith, friend and follower of Jesus, a loving husband, and a proud girl dad. I also happen to be a passionate photographer and storyteller. Through my lens, I invite you to discover the most authentic and unfiltered version of yourself.


My philosophy is simple: there is no judgment here. I am here to capture the real you—the you that experiences the full spectrum of emotions. From the exhilarating butterflies of joy to the heartfelt tears of sorrow, every feeling is significant, and I am committed to preserving them in their purest form.

My purpose as a photographer is not to freeze moments in time, but to encapsulate the very essence of those moments—the emotions, the sensations, and the genuine feelings that make life so profound. When you view my photographs, I want you to feel them, not just see them.

My intent with every click of the camera is to create images that speak volumes, that tell your unique story, and that transport you back to the day they were taken. I want you to relive the sounds, the smells, and the feelings as if they were happening all over again.

Beyond the camera, I am genuinely interested in you and your family. Your stories, your experiences, and your moments of joy and vulnerability are what inspire my work. I would be honored to learn more about you and collaborate with you to create lasting memories.

Let's embark on this photographic journey together, where your real, unfiltered self takes center stage, and every click of the camera is an opportunity to tell your story in its most authentic form.

Love out loud,
