My name is Angela and I'm the artist behind the images of Angela Smith Photography. I'm a wife, mother of two young children, and lover of all things photography.

I am located in Sherwood, Oregon and service the greater Portland Metro area. While I enjoy photographing subjects of all kinds, I have found that my passion lies in capturing life's most treasured moments - the miracle of a newborn, the confidence of a high school senior, a young couple in love, and a bride's tears of joy on her wedding day.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog. Please kick your feet up, grab a cup of coffee, and share my passion with me!

7.26.08 - Jessica & Chris's Cinderella Wedding..

Oh my.. This was one of the most elegant weddings I've been a witness to. From the beautiful location - Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom - to the Cinderella dresses, this was a stunning wedding. Chris & Jessica are high-school sweethearts and have been in love for over 10 years. They are such an adorable couple and I loved every moment spent with them from their engagement session to their picture perfect wedding. I wish you both a long & happy marriage!

7.25.08 - Meghan & Chris Tie the Knot!

You might recognize this adorable couple from their engagement session I did a few months back. I immediately fell in love with them. They are the cutest, sweetest couple and oh-so-in-love! Their ceremony was incredible and it was an honor to be a part of such a special day. Congrats Meghan & Chris!

Little "J" - 1 Week Old

It was a joy to work with one week old baby J last night; the son of one of my good friends. I can't say it enough - I just love newborns!

The most awake baby!

Ok. This little one definitely made me work for it! Reed is so adorable and a very sweet baby. But sleepy, he is not! We tried & tried for over 2 hours with this little one and he just was not having a nap (besides the brief one he took in Daddy's arms).. I have to say thank you to his determined parents who put up with me and several "let's just try one more time" requests. In the end, we still managed to get some great photos and here are some of my favs.

Sleepy Dario...

My other newborn session yesterday was sweet, sleepy Dario. Dario is 2 months old and oh-so-cute! He was a trooper (we shot for 2 1/2 hours and the studio was a little on the warm side) and we had a hard time keeping him awayketowards the end of the session.

Little Brooklyn...

Babies, babies, babies! One of my newborn sessions today was with beautiful Brooklyn. Her smile is incredible and her eyes are just beautiful. And even though she's 3 months old, we were able to get her to sleep for some adorable sleeping baby pictures...

Diane's sneak peak...

I recently had the pleasure of working with expectant parents Diane and Hunter. They are expecting in August and by their choice, didn't find out the gender of the baby. I have to give them kudos for being so patient... I don't think I could wait, but I'm sure it will make the birth all the more special for them...
