Meet The Team
Laylee Emadi Smith
I’m a photographer, encourager, cat mom, and bloody mary enthusiast. My mission is to capture your story with heart and authenticity. I believe in putting people first—always. Some people might say I use too many abbreves or drink too many cups of coffee, but I just don’t think that’s possible.That’s my better half Tim over there. We’re rarely this cheesy, but I secretly love it when we are. The beach is where we got married, and it will forever be my happy place. My bags are usually packed for my next flight, and I love to travel… but here’s the real secret: there’s nowhere I’d rather be than in our cozy living room, with our two cats curled up by my feet.Let’s get to know each other. Like, really know each other. If we’re going to be working together, I want to make sure we’re a perfect fit! So let’s get this party started.
