Mike is a wonderful photographer. Because I needed reasonably priced, professional head shots I chose Smile on Life Photography. Mike took me onto the Naval Academy and snapped wonderful photos with great backgrounds. I am also new to the area so Mike took the opportunity to tell me about some of the history of Annapolis and show me around. I am 100% satisfied with my photos and Mike went above and beyond in his customer service. I recommend Smile on Life Photography to everyone!

Family Picture

For my birthday my partner contacted Mike to take a family picture. Mike came to our home surveyed the surroundings inside and out and took amazing photos of both together and individually, along with our dog. Mike was friendly, energetic and very easy to work with! We now have several beautiful pictures of our family! I would recommend Mike for any and all photography needs.

Birthday Gathering

MIke took some wonderful photos of our recent birthday celebration. We were a varied bunch - from 3 to 80 years. Mike suggested a great location, worked through numerous details, and produced terrific photos of our joyful, informal gathering. Great work!

Amazing Wedding

I can’t stop thinking about the greatest event I’ve ever attended! You and your team were just THE BEST! I can’t ever thank you enough and I know when I look at the exquisite photographs you and your team captured I’m going to cry all over again and again and again. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU so very much. All my love, Becky

Newborn Shoot

Mike is awesome!! His photos of our newborn baby girl are AMAZING !! Mike really captured her innocence, sweetness, and especially that precious moment in her life that we will cherish forever and always remember by looking back at her photos over and over.. They turned out fabulously great! Mike is very fun, easy going, professional and personable. He is especially patient with newborns and you can tell he loves what he does best - taking awesome pictures! While photographing our baby, we loved how he would show us the picture he just took and we would giggle in delight. We also loved that he would give us sneak peeks while he was working on the end product. We will definitely be working with Mike again. Definitely book your photo shoot with Mike and Smile On Life Photography for your occasion! Thanks, Mike for the awesome pictures!


Mike is an amazing photographer, he spends time to get to know you and your style. Mike has a great personality and will go beyond the call of duty to make you happy. I don't even need to brag about his creativity or skills because it is obvious in the final product! Mike did our engagement photos and wedding and he will be our photographer for life 🙂 Thanks Mike!

Thank You Mike !!!

Mike did our engagement shoot a couple weeks ago--we had a blast!! Mike is very personable, he really gets to know you and your style before the photo shoot. Not only does Mike have a great personality but he is extremely professional and he does AMAZING work! We were so pleased with our engagement photos, I can't wait for the wedding! I could go on about how lucky we are to have an awesome photographer but its clear from the pictures on his website that he loves what he is doing as it shows in his work.

Family Portraits

Mike has a knack for catching kids in natural situations and the patience to wait for it to happen. He's also very patient with a group of adults. Sometimes like herding a bunch of cats. Awesome job Mike!!

Christmas gift

I bought my family a photo shoot for Christmas. We finally did the shoot, we were waiting on Spring. But once we were ready, Mike was ready to take us on, all 10 of us, including twin 2 year olds.It was a beautiful day and my whole family raved about how fun it was to enjoy each others company and have a great photographer to capture it. I pat myself on the shoulder for the Christmas idea BUT I want to thank Mike for making the day last forever in our beautiful photos!

Newborn Photos

I love Dylan's newborn photos. He looks gorgeous and his quiet, peaceful personality comes through beautifully. Mike came to my house and spent several hours photographing Dylan in different settings to get a variety of wonderful photos. I highly recommend working with him. Enjoy!!!

Cameron's Pics

Once again we had an awesome time with you taking Cameron's first pics. And the end product is amazing!

1st Family Session

I would just like to say we are beyond happy with the photos taken by Mike. Not only is his work outstanding but he had un-ending patience with my nap deprived one year old and cranky infant. I am so grateful to have these tender times captured. Already it has gone by too fast!!!

Maternity Session

We had such an awesome time doing these photos. I have never really done professional pics, but Mike made us feel so comfortable. He had so much patience with us. It was really nice being in the comfort of our house. I am so excited about the end product that I can't stop looking at them! I'm looking forward to you taking Cameron's first pictures I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you so much.

Newborn Photo Shoot

Mike did an excellent job on our baby's first pictures! He spent extra time making sure that we were happy with the photos that were captured and he paid special attention to detail! He is very patient and you can tell that he loves photographing newborns. Mike was also very easy to work with and got back to us very quickly when we had questions. In the end, our photos looked great and we love them!!! Thanks, Mike!

Erica & Logan

Logan and I did our shoot together in October 2011. Logan is very shy in character but right away he warmed up to Mike. Soon after, Logan started giving him direction on how to capture his picture. We had a blast.

Jacob's 2 year old/Christmas Photos

Mike did my sons 2 year old photos and i am so pleased with the way they turned out. I have gotten so much positive feedback after people received my holiday cards. Mike did such a great job with my son during the photo session which made it such an enjoyable experience for all of us. I would certainly recommend Smile On Life Photography to all of my friends and family.

Engagement Session

MIke did our engagment shoot a few months ago and it was so much fun we felt very relaxed and got a lot of amazing pictures

Our Wedding

I recently got married on June 25th and Mike from Smile on Life Photography did an AMAZING job! Our photos were so unique. His philosophy is to let you enjoy your day while he captures the true moments and expressions without stopping to ask you to "pose". Afterwards we posted our photos online for our friends and family to see and many of our comments were that the pictures looked as if they should have been in a Bridal Magazine!He is so up to date in the latest technology that some of our pictures had two

Fantastic Family Portraits

We've used Mike now for the past two years, and wether he's photographing our annual family portrait, (4 kids from3-9) and our 4 adults, or a roudy bunch of Coasties for a retirement party, he's always managed to capture the spirit and fun of the moment, and brought us some amazing memories and images captured forever. Only photographer we will use!

Fall Photos

Mike did an amazing job photographing our family of 4. He was great with the kids and was able to capture their personalities in his photos. We have had experience with many photographers and I will continue to use Mike and Smile on Life in the future. He is a very talented photographer and a really great guy!
