Who knows?

Who knows why someone photographs what they photograph? Not me. All I know is that I saw this and I LOVED it! I was downtown working on a commercial job when I looked up and there it was. Too cool! If you don't "get" it, you are thinking way too hard. Images from my commercial job to come.

WDBR Babes of Summer WINNER!

This little guy was the WDBR Babes of Summer WINNER!
I photographed him today and WOW! He is such a cutie! And, get this, he is a soccer player. Really. He is. He is only 13 mos and totally kicks the soccer ball around. I saw it with my own eyes! His dad is a soccer coach, so I guess he comes by it naturally.
Beckham BEWARE!

Kimberly Smoot Photography quoted in the SJR!

Thank you for making sure I received several copies of the SJR's recent Bride and Groom section. It was so much fun seeing the Trash the Dress article and how far the TTD (Trash the Dress) movement has come in such little time.

In case you missed it...

This MODEL gets her own post!

This model was photographed for 5 1/2 hours. She deserves her own post!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles!

A photographer friend of mine goes all over the country putting on workshops and this weekend I hosted one for her. There were seven photographers that came into town literally by plane, train or automobile. We spent the day laughing and learning. A HUGE thank you to the models that helped us out!

Do you read the newspaper?

I am looking for a copy of last Saturday's SJR. The BRIDAL section more specifically. The part where I was QUOTED even more specifically. Does anyone still have it? Apparently I am the only one in town that has not SEEN it! Help me out here, would ya? LOL

Amazing WEATHER, Amazing GIRLS!

We couldn't have asked for better weather in JANUARY! I think it might have reached 67 degrees while we hung out. Totally amazing how some things just work out!

Thank you, girls, for making my morning so much fun! You are both truly as beautiful on the INSIDE as you obviously are on the OUTSIDE!

Sisters UNITE!
