Mebane Photographer : Katie Smith

creating beautiful family portraits since 2008

Capturing love & happiness

Your portraits are more than just pretty pictures.  Family portraits are tangible evidence of the love and joy that fill your home.  This love is evident in the tender candid portrait of a couple just before they kiss.  The joy shows as Mom laughs while breaking out of the posed portrait into a bear hug that surrounds all her children.  Katie Smith Photography’s perfect blend of posed and candid portraits captures a variety of looks and emotions while keeping everyone looking and feeling amazing.

A better photo experience

Your portrait experience begins with your complimentary consultation.  Over coffee, we’ll collaborate to create your perfect photo session.  We’ll discuss details like location, wardrobe, and poses to create beautiful art that perfectly represents you.  You’ll also begin to think about your finished artwork.  Do you need a vertical portrait for a narrow wall or do you want to fill a wall with multiple canvases?

The next step of your photo experience is the 1.5 hour photo session at the location of your choice.  This is the perfect length to allow multiple outfit changes, different backgrounds, and plenty of time to get comfortable in front of the camera.   By choosing your own location, we get to use a place that is close to your heart.  You can choose to have the photo session at your home, a favorite park, or at your favorite date night spot.

A week after your portrait session, you’ll be able to review your portraits at your personalized ordering session.  You are welcome to come to my home office, meet for coffee in downtown Mebane, or even have your ordering session at your own home.   You’ll be treated to refreshments as we review 25+ photos from your session.  Our easy rating system allows you to quickly choose your favorite photos.  Together, we’ll go over options to create your perfect wall portrait or album.  If you send a photo of your wall, we can ever superimpose portraits onto your wall for easier visualization.

Investing in Quality Artwork

When you invest in your portraits by Mebane photographer Katie Smith, you make an investment into your family’s memories and legacy.  Studies have shown that seeing their family portraits displayed is great for a child’s self esteem.  I personally know I feel happier when I see photos of my smiling children.

When deciding on your wall art, you can make a statement with one portrait or tell a story with a grouping.  Single portraits are available for framed prints, wrapped canvas, or metal prints. Wall galleries tell a story by displaying a collection of images from your session.  Wall galleries are available as a mounted print or canvas and have more than thirty arrangements to choose from.  All of our artwork comes ready to hang with frames, wrapped canvas, or metal prints.

When you fall in love with more photos than you have wall space for, albums are perfect to keeping them together and organized.  We offer two album options: a 12×12 heirloom album with thick, sturdy pages perfect for homes with small children and a 5×7 album of matted prints.

Your portraits make great gifts.  Beyond the typical small prints, we offer acrylic blocks, brag books, ornaments, and even jewelry.

While we focus on providing finished pieces for our clients, we understand that many people want digital files.  All our wall art includes a corresponding digital file to archive on your home computer and cloud storage.  We also encourage social media sharing with low resolution files for easy uploading.

Happiness Guaranteed or Money Back

You will love your photos.  If your photos don’t absolutely melt your heart, we will happily reshoot your session or refund your session fee.

Stepping outside reality

Have you ever dreamed of being a mermaid?  Do your kids love to pretend to be pirates?  Are you obsessed with The Walking Dead?  Maybe a “normal” photo shoot isn’t for you.  A Creative session allows clients to step outside of reality for a fun-filled portrait session full of imagination and creativity.  We’ll work together to create the perfect costumes and atmosphere to create amazing portraits.
