The Karen Smette Session

The Karen Smette Session is a completley free session in dedication to my grandmother, Karen.

As some of you may know, I lost a very special person in the fall of 2017, my grandma. She was diagnosed with stage 4 lung, brain, and adrenal cancer in July and she lost her battle in October.

During this time, we came together as a family and sacrificed so much to spend every single waking moment at her side.

It was hard.

Some days it felt as though my world was about to come crashing in upon itself, but nevertheless, we persisted.

I remember having conversations with other family members about wanting to do some family pictures before the chemo started kicking in. Unfortunately, every photographer I reached out to didn’t have the time and it was a time sensitive matter.

It just simply wasn’t meant to be.

Therefore, I have decided to offer The Karen Smette Session.

Every year, I will be donating three Karen Smette Sessions to those who may not have another chance. I want to gift families lasting memories that we were unable to have.                                                      

We will also offer pay it forward sessions if you wanted to donate a session to someone you know.

Sadly, we will be unable to accommodate every person, but we will do our best.
