Our Freed Photography Philosophy

We think that every smile should be shared!

Smiles are powerful and should be given and received regularly. As a photography company, it is our job to bring out and capture the best smiles. These smiles can be framed and hung on a wall or set on an office desk to give warm reminders over and over again of those who are most precious to us!

The Power of smiles

The power of a smile is truly remarkable. It is a universally understood gesture, transcending language, culture, and geography, conveying warmth, friendliness, and goodwill with a simple upward curve of the lips. Even in the absence of words, a smile speaks volumes, offering comfort to the weary, hope to the despondent, and a sense of belonging to the isolated. It's an emblem of our shared humanity, a silent testament to our innate need for connection and understanding.

Beyond its emotive capabilities, a smile has the potential to create physiological changes in both the giver and the receiver. Research has shown that smiling releases endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, and serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of happiness and well-being. When someone smiles at us, our brain often compels us to return the gesture, setting off a cascade of positive emotions and fostering a sense of rapport. This simple act can bridge divides, mend rifts, and even change the course of someone's day. In a world teeming with complexity, the uncomplicated power of a smile reminds us of the profound impact of small acts of kindness.
