FiftyCentLove Photographie
About Me


I’m Debbie Smith, a Christiansburg Photographer with over 7 years of experience specializing in fun family photography, beautiful maternity portraits, emotive newborn photography, and creative high school senior portraits.

I’m here to guide and direct you every step of the way so that you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera.

I volunteer regularly with the Montgomery County Animal Care and Adoption Center to take funny and creative pictures of the doggies and kitties that are in need of furever homes.  You can find our monthly photos on the volunteer facebook page.

I also enjoy collaborating with local small businesses such as Robin and Co. hair salon in Christiansburg Va.  We've collaborated on Glamour Portraits where they've done hair and makeup and I've also photographed their staff headshots.  If you own a small business in the New River Valley, contact me to talk about how we can collaborate.

The story behind the name FiftyCentLove Photographie:

One day my husband, Mike, was looking through a handful of quarters. He found a quarter with his birth year on it and one of my birth year. Our son Alex said, "Hey that's 50 cent of your love!" So I started a little blog with that name to show personal pictures of my family.  Friends started asking me to photograph their family and it took off from there!  

The "ie" on the end of photography is because Debbie is spelled with an ie.  It's also spelled as one word and capital letters FiftyCentLove and most commonly misspelled as Fifty Cent Love.  

I've enjoyed this journey and am honored to be a notable portrait photographer in the New River Valley.

My goal is to provide you with a wonderful and memorable experience so that when you look back on your photographs in years to come, you’ll only have happy memories of the time we spent together.
