I'm Stacey Smith

Lead photographer and chaser of sunsets. Being a mom myself, I know life can look messy and seem a little chaotic, but there's so much beauty in those raw moments. It's all about coming as you are and embracing the season you're in...and having some fun in the process.


Jake Smith

Associate photographer and assistant extraordinaire. Jake has an amazing eye for beauty and a knack for making your little ones smile. His calming presence and extreme care at a newborn session is always heartwarming.


We specialize in newborn, family, couple, maternity and portrait photography. We're based in Cincinnati, OH and shooting in the tri-state area. With a growing family of our own, we know how important it is to freeze time every now and again. We are here to capture your milestones and tell your story. We have a relaxed, lifestyle photography approach and love utilizing natural light. We craft each session to fit your needs and will go to the ends of the Earth to make your photo session perfect.

As with many dreams, PICSMITH started as a passion and has quickly grown into a business. Run by myself (Stacey) and assisted by my husband (Jake). We are both designers by trade, but have not put the cameras down since we picked them up many years ago. Partners in life and partners in business, there couldn't be anything more rewarding.

our family

Family means everything, and ours has recently grown. We welcomed our sweet baby girl, Juniper Rae, early this summer. We are realizing (now more than ever) how important it is to capture all of the sweet, simple moments in life. We also have a wonderful, sleepy pup named Luna.
