All I know is that this exchange student is from Berlin, I think. And that he is staying in Pleasant Plains, I think. If you know him, tell him he is on my blog!

TRASH BASH for Blake!


TRASH BASH y' all!





TRASH BASH turn out!

We had brides, bridesmaids, teenagers and a couple of cute kiddos! It was so much fun photographing them without worrying about getting them dirty! If you missed it, you might be able to persuade me into a TRASH BASH II.

Awsome Locations!

This senior picked AWESOME locations! He did the 4 locations and 5 outfits session. We went to Washington Park, downtown, to his High School football field and out to this covered bridge. I had never been out there before and I LOVE it!

I can't go ANYWHERE...

I can't go ANYWHERE these days without someone mentioning the AMAZING article that the SJR published about Kimberly Smoot Photography. Evidently, EVERYONE reads the newspaper on Sundays! Just in case you missed it, you can READ IT HERE.

I know, I KNOW...I have not posted...I'm sorry!

I think it is so funny that so many people are checking my BLOG! I have had emails saying that I have not posted. I will catch up soon. I was out of town for business and for pleasure, if that counts for anything. I will post images from the GO RED for women luncheon that I was honored to be invited to attend. That is a whole post right there! I will also tell all about the work that I am doing for the Hope Institute and the FABULOUS evening I had at the Celebrity Chef Event. Happy 50th Hope! All that and more to be added soon.

Little Cutie!
