BYU-Idaho Radio · Idaho Falls Photographer holds ethereal-styled photoshoot

Have you ever wondered if photography could capture the same vision and tone as a classical piece of art? Mikayla Smith is a photographer from Idaho Falls who is hosting an ethereal photoshoot based upon a classically-styled oil painting portraying an old English tale of a woman with a desire to see Camelot. 

“My inspiration came from a painting called “The Lady of Shalott,” said Mikayla Smith in an interview with BYU-Idaho Radio.  

Smith was initially inspired to pursue photography by her eighth grade teacher. 

“When I was in eighth grade I had an English teacher who was really passionate about photography and she shared her passion with the students and was really encouraging,” Smith said.

Smith has an extensive portfolio and particularly enjoys doing photo shoots for weddings and engagements as shown below.

“I really love some bridals that I did in Palisades a couple of weeks ago, just a beautiful area, the water was crystal clear and it was just as the sun was coming up,” Smith said.

The photoshoot is described as an opportunity to escape and relax and get some unique photos to hang on your walls. 

“My models are going to be getting into the water and have this dreamy and carefree almost frivolous experience. Just to experience life the way you want to,” Smith said.
