I am Spencer Smith, and I am the owner and portrait artist of Smith's Studio. I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior at an early age and was blessed to know the will of God for my life while still in high school. I graduated from North Ga. Tech with honors with a degree in commercial photography in 1994. After graduation, I married my wife, Shannon, in July of 1994. Six months later we started our portrait studio in Eastman, Ga. In October of 1998, God blessed us with a beautiful Victorian house with all we had ever dreamed of and more. (But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19) We are both actively involved in our community and numerous photography associations. I am currently the 2nd Vice President on the board of the Ga. Professional Photographer's Association, where I've received my Ga. Fellowship Degree and Ga. Service Degree. Shannon and I love children. We have fostered over seventy children and have adopted four children: Eddie, Meddie, Shandler, and Shyenne. We have two grandchildren, Rylan and Nolan, by our oldest daughter, Meddie. We were told that we would most likely never be able to have children. Surprisingly, after 16 years, of marriage God blessed us with our miracle, Shylah Faith. She was born December 8, 2010. Our healthy baby girl weighed 7 lbs 5 oz and was 21 inches long with a head full of hair. God has been so good to us!
