Welcome to Laveen Photography. My name is Douglas L Smith (aka Doug), the photographer here at Laveen Photography.  I am currently developing my website so it is currently a work in progress.  I invite you to come by and see how it is progressing and please contact for parties, family photos, graduations/senior photos, engagements, weddings, or whatever your occasion. 

Photography is a passion and my desire is to convey that passion to everyone I work with as a photographer and to everyone who views my photos.  Through my photography I try and capture moments in time as well as the feelings and emotions.  Photographs are very personal, so my goal when working with others is for my photographs to evoke strong memories and feelings years from now when they are viewed.  An equally important goal is to make the process of capturing those photographs fun for everyone.

I enjoy a broad range of photography including portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, and wildlife.  I shoot engagements, weddings, children, family portraits, seniors & graduations, and corporate functions.  I do not work out of a studio, though I have lighting that I can bring to an indoor setting.  I prefer location shoots and natural lighting.  I love environmental portraiture and like my portraits to have a candid and spontaneous feel to them as opposed to being obviously posed.

Again, I hope you will contact me for your next special event or occasion.
