Hi, I'm Michelle Smith, Your Custom Portrait Artist.

That’s right, Artist. We’re not just snapping photos here! We’re creating art through photographs that your family will cherish forever. It is my passion to capture everyday people in their very best light.  I am extremely devoted to my clients, and accept only a limited amount of projects each month, to give you the special attention that you deserve.

Every photographer captures images uniquely. When you find a photographer whose style aligns with your vision, it is truly magical. I describe my style as crisp, clean, vibrant, and emotive.

Aside from photography, I am a wife to a small business owner, mom to five growing boys, lake lover, foster care and adoption advocate, and wanna-be animal hoarder. 

I live on 180 beautiful acres in Weston, Missouri (conveniently located between Kansas City and Saint Joseph). I travel throughout Missouri and Kansas (and occasionally farther!) to photograph my clients.
