I Smile Studios

Stephanie McCauley is the founder and CEO of iSmile Studios, a full service family portrait studio located in a busy shopping mall in Albany New York.   

 The studio opened in 2008 and schools began asking if iSmile had a school photography program … so iSmile’s foray into volume photography happened rather accidentally.  What started with a small school district and a couple preschools ten years ago has blossomed into a thriving volume business that rivals (and sometimes exceeds) the portrait studio’s revenue.    With the belief that school pictures should be PORTRAITS, Steph and her team have provided the Albany NY area with traditional indoor school pictures, outdoor school pictures, family photo night fundraisers at school, senior photography programs, sports leagues, event coverage for all schools they work with, athletic banners for senior recognition, branding photography for private schools, and full graduation services including family portraits before or after the ceremony.

 Steph and her husband of 22 years, Lewis, have two teenage boys and the family splits their time between Albany New York and Jupiter Florida.  Oh, and fun fact.  iSmile Studios purchased FOUR photo booths a week before the pandemic hit.  So they are looking forward to live events returning so they can share how that can further enhance volume business.    🙂
