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!

2010 Susan G Komen Race for the Cure

Yesterday, Team Nadine hit the pavement for the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, along with nearly 40,000 other participants. This was the first year Team Nadine registered as an official team and we raised over $900 combined for the Susan G Komen Foundation.

We started the day with a quick stop at our local Starbucks, then headed to Washington Square to wait for our shuttle.


We found a nice gentleman to take a few pictures of our team.


Our team consisted of my best friend Misty, my mom Sandy..


..My son Brady and my cousin Amy..


We lost my mom's mother to breast cancer over 6 years ago. This was my mom's first year participating in the race and I'm excited to have her on my team.


This was Brady's second year racing with me. He did a wonderful job and managed to find a sucker to carry him so his legs could have a little rest..


My beautiful mother..


I can't say how special it was to have my mom at my side this year. The girls came up the night before the race and we toasted to our team and my grandmother. Then, we stayed up way too late sharing memories of our beloved Nadine.


Team Nadine at the finish line!
