Joyce Smith

Former English teacher and Ph.D. student Joyce Smith gleefully left academia for story-telling of a different kind and never looked back. She enjoys photographing what are surely Philadelphia’s most adorable babies, children and pets, and she brings her passion for research and learning to her photography business. With a classic yet distinctly modern style, Joyce creates refreshing, compelling portraits of her clients both on location and in her natural light studio, but she also enjoys the challenge of capturing extraordinary images in ordinary homes.

In addition to her portrait work at Joyce Smith Photography, she is the creative force behind WordSmith for Photographers and loves that her years of English study were not for naught in the end.
