About

I’m Heather! I am a portrait/life style photographer in and around the Washington County, MD area! -and beyond!

I hold an associates degree in business management. Prior to mom life I worked in the corporate world for 6 years. Creativity is in my blood. I never wanted to be confined by a desk, in school and at work. I loved photography the moment I was able to hold my blue Fischer price film camera! What started as a hobby and with the encouragement of family/friends, business mentors and Gods provision and strength, I was led to make this hobby a legit business in 2019.

I have a heart to serve and create connection with people, the mind to create- that thrives on pushing the rules and asking “why” all the time. I take risks, sometimes I fall on my face and sometimes I fly! I live life with no regrets and put my heart and faith in 100% of what I do.

At the end of 2020 I opened up a photography and creative art studio in downtown Smithsburg to run my photography business out of and offer family friendly workshops and classes on all things arts and craft. The studio also opens opportunities to share the love of Jesus with our clients and the community. Opening the studio would not be possible without this girl below!

I’m Rachel! I’m the Manager at The Smithsburg Studio.

I love all types of artistic expression, but I have found my passion in photography. Allowing the lens to reflect someone’s unique personality and spirit, whether that is working on location at a shoot or in the editing booth, makes my heart happy. When I’m in the studio, I want to find beauty and joy in the memories caught with those you love.

Rachel holds an Associate of Arts Degree with a concentration in visual arts from Hagerstown Community College.

I’m Katie! I’m the resident artist at the studio.

I use the studio to sew apparel for my Etsy shop, conduct dress alterations, teach private sewing lessons, and pursue my hobby of creating historical/vintage fashions. I am also a painter and portrait artist! I offer historically-inspired painted portraits.

Katie holds a Bachelors Degree in Arts from Messiah College.
