About me - Artist 4 God

Hello, I’m Sonya Smoak a.k.a. "Artist 4 God". I'm a natural artist who happens to love graphic design and photography. Below you'll find a little more about me as a Designer and as a Photographer.

Artist 4 God - The Designer

After working successfully in the corporate world for many year, as a graphic designer and art director; I felt lead to start working with individuals, small businesses, ministries, and churches. With my degree in Visual Communications, I know what it takes to make businesses succeed. I bring unique ideas and a fresh perspective to every project I undertake.

Artist 4 God - The Photographer

My love of photography began when I was a child. My father use to take pictures of us all the time, so I guess I got my fascination for photography from him. I love looking at old photographs as well as watching others as they look at them. Seeing how they invoke memories.

In college I took my first photography class as a prerequisite for my advertising degree. The challenge of creating the picture that I saw in my head and capturing it on film was addicting. My love stayed even though I continued major into advertising. It wasn't until years later that my love totally took over.

I'd like to think that I do not need to speak for my photography, but let what I try to capture in the photographs speak for itself. A persons true personality, the toothless grin on a six year old, the fake smile a ten year old loves to give; or the big, inquisitive eyes of a infant that looks up and melt your heart with. The uniqueness of a high school senior preparing for a new season in life.

Even at weddings I try to put myself in your shoes, and be sensitive to your needs. The details that are important to you are important to me. As your photographer, I hope to give you the same joy that I feel when I look at pictures. It gives me great joy and satisfaction to know that my pictures will be a part of your family for years to come.

I look forward to hearing and meeting with you to discuss your design and or photography needs.

Many Blessings,

Sonya
