Louisville's Favorite Senior Portrait Photography Studio


Beth Smith

Photographer & Data Management

I was hired for my first photography job when I was 21 and I have worked in the photography field ever since. I started with film and have had to learn digital over the years. I love learning new programs and techniques that can make your photo even better.

Larry Smith


I enjoy the fast-paced execution of photographing an entire school, a corporate staff or a sporting team. Creating images that expose one’s personality or display confidence that says, “This is me, and I excel at what I do.” I have 30 years of experience in this line of work, and it is still fun to meet new clients every day.

Chris Schuler


Since a young age, my family always said I was good at taking photos. It occurred to me that photography might be my thing when I would take, at times, dozens of photos trying to find the perfect shot. I started at Illumination Studio in 2019 and personally, I would say it’s the best job I’ve ever had!

Janeen Conner

Customer Service Manager

My favorite part about customer service has always been talking with different people and learning new things about the people I interact with. It’s so fun to work with clients, and coming from Seattle, I love getting to know the people in Louisville. I can’t wait to meet and make sure your experience with us is great!
