MISA ME Photography bio picture
  • Hello and welcome to all things MISA ME! I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Annapolis, Maryland.

    My photos say it all but if I had to describe my style in three words they would be fresh and candid always with a touch of sun flare .

    I've meshed the best of both worlds into this "blogsite" where you'll find post after post and image after image of the beauty I see in those I photograph and the moments that make you melt.

    Capturing laughter on camera gets me right in the gut! I'll rock your portrait session and click away from beginning to end on your wedding day!

    Hope to see you on the flip side of my camera!

Maryland Senior Portrait Photographer: Capturing Inner Beauty on Camera

I’ve been holding on to a little secret!

I’ve hinted here and there about a new High School Senior Portrait Program I’ve been developing. I’m literally bursting at the seams to go-go-go. Share all the details, post all the images, just get the darn ball rolling. But before I do that, I feel I need to pause… I want to share why I am taking this deep seeded idea from mind and choosing to take a part of my business in this new direction. This isn’t just a photographer taking pictures for the sake of taking pictures or trying to find another market to reach, just because. This is a genuine motivation, a want, a need, that stems directly from my heart. To be a channel through which a young girl is able to see her true beauty.

Confidence can be slow to build. A lesson I continue to learn as a woman to this day. There is this mold that society has conjured up. Its thrown in our face everywhere in every way. It can leave us thinking that if we don’t fit that mold, we somehow fall short as a person. We’re not the “perfect” that society is showing and telling us to be. We don’t measure up.

The truth is, we do not have to live up to this scale of perfection that society deems the end-all of beauty. Someone other than the media needs to show girls what beautiful really is. You deserve to be told you are beautiful because you truly are!

Although I haven’t gone full force yet in promoting this new portrait experience, I have had the opportunity to photograph quite a few incredible high school senior girls throughout my career. I can’t even begin to explain the look of pure joy and excitement that lights up a young girl’s face like when she sees her portraits for the first time. Even if it is just a tiny unedited preview on the backside of my camera, it’s like seeing yourself in an entirely new light. It’s an awakening! They see the beauty, the positive, the incredible soul that we see.

The flicker of light, happiness, and confidence are what have motivated me to build a portrait experience for these young girls. An experience that brings out the true you. A you that you may or may not realize was there.

A portrait session is not just about looks, it’s about who you are. I cannot wait to go on this adventure of self discovery with each and every High School Senior that invests in a session with MISA ME. I promise to spend quality time getting to know the ins and outs of who you are. That natural inner beauty that is anxiously waiting to come out, be captured, and preserved timelessly on camera. The perfect keepsake for one of the most incredible times in your life.

Stay tuned throughout these next few weeks for blog posts featuring MISA ME Photography’s incredible Senior Rep team. If you are a high school senior interested in booking MISA ME Photography’s portrait services please fill out the contact form at www.misamephoto.com.

Annapolis Maryland Engagement Session: Kyle and Ashleigh

This Annapolis engagement session session makes my heart beat faster just thinking about it! Down to the basic, purest form, it was such a great experience. Kyle and Ashleigh are a top notch couple. Just as incredibly sweet on the inside as they are beautiful on the outside. Ashleigh fits so perfectly into her sweetheart’s arms. They shared so much laughter during our time photographing. Their love story most definitely has great things to come, I can just feel it!

 

 

Downtown Annapolis Maryland Family Portraits: Miller Family

It has been such an awesome journey with this family! I photographed Ashley and Chris’ engagement session, wedding day, and now their family of four. One of the best treats is to be hired back by a past wedding client to photograph their family as it grows! A delight indeed to see where life is taking them. I only hope to continue to have the opportunity again and again as time goes by!

Kinder Farm Park Engagement Session: Nick & Laura

What’s not to love about a summer time engagement session featuring two completely smitten individuals set amongst the lushest of park lands? I’ll give you a hint…absolutely nothing! Nick and Laura are set to wed this upcoming October and I must say I’m counting down the days! In fact, a former bride of mine, Kristie with Miss Minka Events, is planning their special day! I still swoon over that stunner of a countryside wedding.

Kinder Farm Park Family Portraits: Lily & Sara

Hello little miss personality! Miss Lily that is. This tiny tot made me melt the second the mini session began. She asked me to hold her hand on the spot and walk with her to the sunlit field in which we were going to take her pictures. So, off we went! Her array of expressions still has me smiling ear to ear. You may recognize Lily’s super talented mom, Sara Elizabeth, with Sara Elizabeth Artistry. She and I have teamed up to offer a pretty amazing high school senior portrait package which you will hear all about in the upcoming weeks!
