Flash Back!

Last Saturday I had a session with a family that I had photographed twelve years ago and today I had a senior session that I had photographed when she was only six months old. It means the world to me that even though it’s been years since I last saw them they still valued my work enough to come back! Having long term relationships with my clients and capturing their life story is my passion.

The biggest obstacle in our lives today is time, or lack of it. To me the people that are taking the time to capture these monumental times in their lives are the lucky ones. The ones who say “we just don’t have the time to get everyone together” are the ones missing out. Photographs help us remember what the mind forgets. I know if it wasn’t for the old B&W photos of my family, I would never know what my parents looked like when they were younger. One of my favorite images was of my father standing in his army uniform leaning against a car on the beach with his helmet,and a cigarette hanging from his mouth. Everyone has memories and stories passed on but you need a face to go with them. That is why Photography is so very important.

Just the view behind my lens 🙂

Be a lucky one

People are so busy, yes we know! But things like a family portrait always seem to get pushed to the side. People who decide to do a family portrait truly are the lucky ones. They took the time out of their busy lives to make a memory that will last forever.  Be a lucky one and book a family session today.

Now here are some lucky ones!

Tonights basics class!

Tonight we have our ladies coming in to learn about exposure how the shutter and aperture work together. I know you are all saying, how can I learn that??? Well we have some good news for you, we are doing classes for August and September! Call now to sign up because space is definitely limited 🙂 Let’s get you away from the green square and let you have some fun with your camera!

See everyone soon,

Denise Smith Business Portrait Wednesdays

Denise Smith Photography knows that executive portraiture is the face of a corporation; it humanizes your company whether you do business down the street or half way around the globe. Although we live an electronic world—emails, texts, conference calls– your business relies on relationships built on trust and the ability to reliably deliver your products and services. Conveying your image and the image of your business is not something you can take lightly; you need an experienced professional photographer.

With over thirty years of experience, Denise Smith knows how to capture an executive’s personality but she also knows that an effective business portrait not only says a lot about you but also says a lot about your company. Denise Smith Photography will work with you or your art or your design department to creatively connect your image with the company you represent. Whether in the boardroom or on the factory floor, Denise gets the most out of a location and will produce an image that will enhance the relationship between you and your client.

Denise Smith Photography is excited to announce Business Portrait Wednesdays. Every Wednesday throughout the summer, you can have your business portrait taken quickly and professionally at Denise’s East Longmeadow studio for only $99. That’s a $50 savings off our regular Business Portrait Package. $99 includes: an in studio session, instant viewing of the images taken, and 1 professionally retouched image (additional images are $75.00 each).

Of course Denise is available for on location sessions, as well.

Don’t trust your professional image to just any photographer; call Denise Smith Photography to book your appointment today. Call us at 413-224-1636. Visit us on the web at


Ever since we moved into our East Longmeadow studio, everything feels more exciting. One of the best things about making a fresh start is making the conscious decision to think positively and making new commitments to our goals and dreams. One of our goals has always been to give our customers an unforgettable experience. We think we did just that when Amanda Tyler, a Longmeadow High School senior, came to us for her senior portrait session. It wasn’t just a regular Saturday when Amanda came–it was her birthday and we did it up big! Cake, balloons, her friends and an unforgettable experience. We not only captured Amanda’s senior images, we gave her the Senior VIP treatment–and we’ve got the the video to prove it on our Youtube channel!

The Senior VIP Session is a private party we throw for four seniors who want to take their senior photos together. The host can invite 3 friends, enjoy refreshments, get their makeup done, and take their photos. And while it’s all happening, Mike Anderson, our videographer, can film the party and create an awesome video that commemorates that very special photo session with Denise.

Graduating from high school only happens once and we think it’s a big deal; we’ve got a number of packages from which to choose; a package that fits every budget. But no matter what package you choose, we’ll treat you like the very important person you are.




Welcome to the new-look website of Denise Smith Photography!
