“My daughter, Paige knew her junior year that she wanted to be a senior model for Kent Smith Photography. She loved every minute of getting her hair and makeup done, and modeling during the various photo shoots. The staff always made us feel welcomed and special, she liked the center of attention she received. Amanda knew how to capture Paige’s personally in the photos. It was exactly the experience we both wanted for her senior pictures.
Because of her wonderful experience, Paige was able to convince her bother, Grant who was a senior at the time to get his pictures taken. This was no easy feat, he had basically refused to have them done anywhere by anyone. After Paige had a few sessions, she enthusiastically shared her experience with her brother. Week by week she wore him down of promises that it wouldn’t be painful at all. Finally he agreed. While I knew my daughter loved her experience, I will be the first to admit, I wasn’t sure if Grant would like the “attention” he was going to get. I could not have been more wrong-he loved it. They made Grant feel comfortable during the session. From the moment we walked into the studio to the final selection and ordering of pictures. He enjoyed having a private dressing room with his name on the door. Amanda knows how to make her clients comfortable, she offers suggestions when you’re not sure what to do, yet allows the you to be as expressive and creative as you want. There is no standard picture or look, she knows how to bring the individual’s personality into pictures. My children could not be more different, yet their sessions catered to each. Grant proudly shows off he senior pictures, often states uncharacteristically “I look good”, his Kent Smith pictures made him feel good about himself.
Our entire family has truly enjoyed the unique photo experience with Kent Smith Photography. The entire staff has made my children feel welcomed, excited and comfortable and we have beautiful quality pictures to remember these special years by.”

“Styles of photography are always changing and when it was my time to choose what I wanted for my senior portraits I knew Kent Smith Photography was the look I was looking for. I wanted something that would be timeless and the only thing that would go out of style twenty years from now would be my outfit. The backdrops, the poses, and the way Amanda captures my personality is exactly how I wanted my high school years to be captured.Aside from the pictures being phenomenal, the KSP experience is something I wish every senior gets to be a part of. It can be intimidating have your pictures taken professionally. Amanda and the Kent Smith Staff had made me feel like part of their family. The feeling you get when you walk into the studio is so comforting and exciting. Kent Smith Photography has something for everyone.”
