Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, and with a lifetime passion for creatively expressing and capturing art in many forms, Jaye (Tolbert) Smith founded Bird's Eye Photography in 2012.

Taken from her nickname, "Jaye Bird" given by her late grandmother and her vision for creativity, "Bird's Eye" was developed. Jaye is a self-taught District of Columbia & Maryland-based photographer. She is dedicated to capturing life in its vast array of colors, emotion and sentiments, while creating a relaxed atmosphere to allow clients to simply, BE themselves. She believes that ALL people are extraordinary in their own way and reflect beauty and life. It is always her mission and passion to help others and therefore, provide affordable services and great memories for each of her clients.

Jaye photographs weddings, celebrities, concerts, expecting mothers (maternity/family), newborns/infants/toddlers, birthdays, family portraits, special events, graduation photos, engagement photos, headshots, products, corporate events, family celebrations, and yes... YOU!
