• Welcome!

    Hi and thanks for stopping by the blog! I am a children's photographer based in Dallas,TX specializing in newborns, babies, & children. I get to spend everyday doing what I love and working with incredible families. I am truly blessed and absolutely love what I do!

    The blog is where you'll find "sneak peeks" from recent sessions, as well as the most recent news and special announcements regarding Claire Smith Photography. Feel free to leave feedback and visit often. I love to hear your comments!


Kiley + Lexie + Dayton + Harley {Dallas Family Photographer}

Slowly beginning to catch up on the blog. Today I wanted to share some favorites from a fun outdoor session from a few weeks ago that I’m editing. My fiancé (yep…I’m engaged! More on that exciting news to come) had that morning off work and decided to come along as my “assistant” for this session. Being a twin himself and a goofball of sorts around my nieces & nephews, I had a feeling he’d help me get some good laughs out of everyone. This gorgeous family has always been such a joy to photograph. With two girls + twin boys, I often wonder how they make it look so easy raising 4 kids. I’m sure there are crazy days and those when there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day. One of those things that I love about my job is when I’m able to witness that special connection each family has when they’re together and all the busyness of life seems to fade. The love and joy amongst them just radiates. Thank you “E” family for such a fun and joyful morning!

Absolutely beautiful pictures – you did a wonderful job in capturing such beautiful faces.

Great looking grandkids! Look at those beautiful blue eyes!
How will we ever choose which pictures to get when more are posted?

2011 fall sessions: yep, it’s that time again!

Despite the fact that today marks the 40th day of temperatures over 100° here in Texas, cooler weather will be here before we know it and my fall sessions are booking up FAST! September is starting to fill up, and October even more so with only a couple weekend spots left. I do schedule sessions on weekdays as well, so you might be thinking of some days during the week that might work if your 1st choice is already booked. My fall cutoff this year is November 1st so all sessions must be completed by then if you want your orders ready in time for the holidays.

Email claire@clairesmith.com or call 214-212-2261 to book your session! Hope to see you this fall… It’s going to be a great one!

Because every post needs a picture, here’s one from a fun session I did this summer in Aspen, CO. One of the many galleries I’m currently working on right now! Oh how it makes me wish TX had some CO weather right now ;) Happy Wednesday everyone!

Cook {Dallas Child Photographer}

Just when I think this sweet boy couldn’t get any cuter, he proves me wrong yet again. (p.s. he’s that baby boy up at the top of the blog with the green hat on). This session was soon after Cook had celebrated his 1st birthday and I must say it’s one of my favorite ages to photograph. His parents are the sweetest and I crack up every time at how his mom and I always manage to get his dad to act like a goofball behind me. Cook sure does love it as you can probably see, and you shouldn’t try to fix something that’s not broken right!? This was one of those sessions where I spent way too much time debating which ones to post. After all, it was big 1 year shoot, so I figured it was ok to share a couple more ;) Happy birthday sweet Cook! Can’t wait to see you again this fall. Hopefully I’ll still be able to keep up with you when you’re off and running by then!

A sneak peek from this past week’s session with a perfect little bundle of joy, Stella Rose. Her proud big brother Hank joined us toward the end of our session, and at one point I heard him telling his mom how much he loved baby Stella. Talk about melting my heart!
