Hi there!  Marie McKowen here.

I started LightSmile Photography 20 years ago with one film camera, plenty of moxie, and one visionary artist brain that has kept me in it for the long haul.  I have enjoyed re-defining myself as an artist over the years, embracing the latest technology, discovering my love of teaching, and finding my niche. 

    I like simple, yet intricate.    
    Hilariously funny and deep thoughts.
    Finding harmony in opposites.
    Noticing beauty in the imperf
    Photography means painting with light.
    I love painting with light.
    I love encouraging o

    I am intrigued by this quote :
    "When I work, and in my art, I hold hands with God."
    ~Robert Mapplethorpe
