Zenfolio | ClickSmith Photography | About

Hello! My name is Liz and I am the gal behind the lens at ClickSmith.


I believe in authentic family photography --natural light, guidance but no stiff posing, and real-life, uncomplicated images that point focus to the most important part of the image - the subject. I am a Shoot & Share photographer and believe in providing you with your photos to print, share, enjoy, as you wish. 


From setting up blanket "backdrops" as a child and forcing my brothers to model for me so I could "do shoots", to toting my point-and-shoot everywhere throughout college, my prized first dSLR landed in my hands in 2010. I spent countless hours (and more dollars than I'll admit to my husband) learning in classrooms, online, and practicing, practicing, practicing...eventually shooting family photos for friends who paid me in wine! 

I have always loved to take pictures, meet new people, and hear their stories. When I realized photographing allowed me to do all three of these things in tandem, there was no looking back. In 2013, ClickSmith Photography was born. I had discovered a "job" that has never felt like work.

It is not lost on me what an honor it is to be asked to tag along with you and yours and capture a moment while it briefly lingers. There is MUCH photography talent in Des Moines and I'm moved you are considering ClickSmith for your photography needs. Big thank you hugs to you. I look forward to working with you and your family!
