I'm Lydia McCaulley Smith! Growing up I was always seeing the world through the eye of a photograph. Even before I had a camera I would see something beautiful and my first though would be of the perfect angles for the shot. My dream for as long as I can remember is to be a photojournalist that tells the amazing stories of what Christ has done for His children. Right now it's more of a hobby and a passion, but one day I hope to make that a career!
Besides photojournalism I also love photographing people in love. Not just couples, but also families! My goal is to make everyone feel super connected and comfortable during the sessions, and with that being accomplished many of my favorite photos are usually the live action moments and not the posed.
Why is photography important to me?
I grew up in a family that documented everything! My baby album is massive because my mom was always taking pictures of us! I believe that photographing memories and telling stories with photography are extremely important because photography can bring back old memories of loved ones and bring foreign places to friends back home!
Awesome facts about me:
-I'm 5'1, spunky and I got a little bit of sass!
-I drive stick shift so my calves are nice enough to support me when I have to stand on my tippie toes when I have tall clients (aka all my clients because I'm super short compared to the rest of the world)
-I'm obsessed with Jeeps and Tacos. I could eat tacos in my Jeep all day long without a care in the world!
-I love dogs, they just make me so happy!
-I also love to talk about the amazing things that Jesus has done for me and my loved ones!
-I love spending time by any body of water, specifically the beach
What's my style?
I think that photographing people in their natural element makes for the best pictures! Making sure that you feel comfortable and at home is my first priority.
So let me follow you around for the day and catch you in your element! Bring your dog or your grandma's fur coat, and take me to your favorite spot to relax.
