Loving Legacy 

At Smyer Image, we hold a deep appreciation for the significance of family. Our commitment extends beyond mere imagery; we perceive family portraits and documentary-style family films as conduits for immortalizing cherished memories and narratives. Our mission is rooted in understanding the intricate tapestry of each family's story.

With family portraits, we endeavor to create more than just images; we strive to forge connections and narrate unique tales. We invest time in comprehending our clients' family dynamics and aspirations for their photos. Through our lens, we capture not just faces, but the essence of familial bonds that transcend time.

Similarly, our documentary-style family films epitomize the essence of craftsmanship and storytelling. Unlike fleeting investments, both family portraits and films appreciate in value over time, serving as enduring legacies for generations to come. We pride ourselves on fostering a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, where families can authentically express themselves, ensuring that the essence of each moment is preserved in its purest form.

Our passion lies in the intersection of photography and storytelling. By immersing ourselves in the narratives of our clients, we empower them to articulate their family's journey authentically and beautifully. We firmly believe that family portraits and films possess the transformative power to connect generations and encapsulate the essence of familial love.

At Smyer Image, we are not just craftsmen; we are custodians of memories, entrusted with the sacred task of immortalizing the bonds that define us. Join us on this journey of celebration, connection, and legacy-building through the art of family portraiture and documentary-style films.

It sounds like a fun and energetic family photo with a lot of movement. The family of 5 is jumping in the air and posing for the camera, with the mom and oldest sister holding their skirts down to keep things classy.

There are also yellow and red flowers in beds around the house and green trees on the sides of the house. The dad is wearing white with blue jeans and has his hands over his head. The oldest daughter has one leg kicked up behind her and her other arm straight up in the air. Her dress is being held down.

"Trisha Koffman"

Brian was absolutely amazing. From scheduling all the way to final images. He was so easy to work with and accommodating to schedule our session. He was fabulous working with the 12 kids from ages 17 down to 4 and captured each of their personalities. He has such a great eye for lighting,backgrounds, and over all settings that we never would have thought of and created beautiful pictures of our large family. He is truly an artist. I figured it would be weeks if not more before we received any pictures back from him, but I had a sneak peak the next day and the album link 2 days later. The pictures he took are truly breath taking and we couldn’t be happier with the experience and final result. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.
