Hello, I'm Mia
Wanting to get a brief intro to who is taking your photos, here it is! In all my nerdy realistic humor. What I do isn't my job, this is truly a part of who I am. It's in my DNA!!!
People always ask me how long I've been taking photos and the answer is FOREVER. My grandparents were photographers! I grew up using old school film cameras, developing in dark rooms, and learning strictly on PHOTOSHOP. Photography was how I viewed the beauty in the world, and it saved me from a lot of dark times in my life. I would love to say that since I saw their careers grow over the years that I knew it was an option career wise for me, but I went through the same amount of doubt as every creative does. I had the "normal" jobs for years, and kept photography as just a side thing. In 2020 I had the much needed wake-up call and decided to just jump all in and life the life I have always dreamed! And so Design DNA was started!
As a Mom with 4 kids, I am passionate about not just taking photos though. I want to capture personalities, memories, stories. I want to take "risky" shots in every session, so when my clients get their galleries back they feel like it was a purely unique experience catered just to them! I don't edit every session the same, and 95% of the time I don't use presets. I want my clients to know that it isn't about super quick turn around time (although my average is 2 weeks), rather it's about presenting the most beautiful images I can!
