I have been taking pictures since I was 9 years old. My first camera was a Canon AE-1, and yes it used real film! I grew up participating in 4-H activities and taking pictures with my mom and one of my close friends. Over the years I have always had my camera close by and now I have turned my hobby into my own business. I would not be where I am today without the support of my family and friends, especially their willingness to be my test models.
Animals have always been a huge part of my life, especially horses. I grew up showing Saddlebreds and I am very comfortable in the barn and around horses. One of the most of exciting experiences I have had as a photographer is following American Pharoah during his training for the Triple Crown at Churchill Downs.
However, animals are not my only focus. I enjoy capturing life's milestones with clients. Holly M. Smith Photography can provide clients with family, newborn, senior, weddings, and birthday party sessions.
I shoot with a Canon 70D camera. I added a 70-200mm lens to my collection and its my pride and joy!
When I'm not working my full time job or taking pictures, I enjoy all things related to University of Kentucky, catching up on all my DVR'd shows or checking my social media. I am a self proclaimed social media junkie !
