This business spotlight is extremely special because the focal point of Kennedy’s Kraft Studio is my baby girl, @ImKennedyJade! She is truly one of the most creative people I know and has been making things since she was 2. She has turned that passion into...

Give Your Real Estate Listing a BOOST Who would have guessed that the Real Estate market would be so hot for so long? As soon as many homes are hitting the market they are gone. In fact, I’ve seen images of lines outside of a home as agents with clients are...
What a year it has been?! Understatement of the year. From a pandemic like nothing we’ve ever seen, to the political divide, to racial injustice and soooo many other issues. This has been a tough year, but in many ways an incredibly blessed year. Here is my...
Constant reminder from Darryl! Self-check. I have been reading The Big Leap with my brother and fellow photographer, Darryl Moore of Phocused by Darryl Photography and we started referring to the term that originated on basketball playgrounds all across the US,...
Sharing an amazing post from Julia Weaver at Redfin. November 30, 2020 by Julia Weaver Believe it or not, the holiday season can be a great time to sell your home. It’s true that the housing market typically heats up during the spring. However, the holiday...
I Believe I think we can all relate to the fact that 2020 has been a year. Full of ups, downs, question marks, and definitely some exclamation points. My family moved in the middle of a pandemic from Chicagoland to North Carolina (take your shirt off and wave it like...
2021 Headshot event I don’t know about you, but 2020 has been a year. Full of ups, downs, surprises, masks, and so much more. I’m extremely grateful, in spite of all that has happened. I’m super excited as we look forward to 2021. In fact, I’m...
Love the look… I was recently challenged by a great friend and fellow photographer Darryl Moore – @PhocusedbyDarryl to shoot only 30 pictures in an entire shoot. A deliberate effort of not just choosing 30 images from a shoot, but limiting the total number...
Very kind and fun individual. I enjoy every photo shoot that we have. We have good interactions, offers great help with picture ideas and poses.
Highly recommend, this was one of the best experiences I've had in a while!
Marc made me feel very comfortable even though I'm not really big on taking pictures and posing. Everything felt very natural and he actually got a lot of good pictures of me. His on the spot suggestions and poses were perfect for the look my wife and I wanted. I would recommend his services to all of my friends.
Mr. Mark is by far the best photographer I have worked with. He personalizes every experience to you and your style. He goes out of his way to make sure you get the best shot possible. He sees the scenery and is able to make you look so amazing. He shows the true power and beauty we possess. He goes above and beyond for his clients. The way he makes you feel so comfortable when you have absolutely 0 clue what you’re doing. He is the best hype man, mentor, photographer, friend, person you could want to take any photos of yourself or loved ones. It really doesn’t get any better than him. He is a true visionary.
Marc Anthony was (and still is) my preferred photographer (when he's in the Chicagoland area). Marc is very professional, prompt and has great quality photos. He arrives early and gets your photos back to you in a very timely manner. I've worked with Marc the last past 2.5 yrs and will definitely recommend and continue to use his services
I had the pleasure of working with Darryl and Marc Smith for a joint headshot session( first off, if you need headshots HIGHLY recommend), and I can honestly say I have never taken better pictures. They worked really well together and made sure that the environment throughout the shoot was comfortable enough for me to give them the best results. Everything was professionally done as it relates to beginning on time, utilizing every second of the shoot, as well as making sure that they got all the angles. I was most pleased with the way Marc positioned the lighting to highlight features in my face as well as bring attention to my eyes. My skin was literally glowing and my eyes were sparkling, and I know that came from Marc's magic because cameras (regardless of price) can only capture so much. If you are looking for a sign to book with Images by Marc Anthony, this is the sign!! I promise you won't regret it! I am so glad to have found him and his headshot session with Darryl through instagram. Now, I have headshots that I can proud of for a lifetime!!
