Thanks for stopping by! I’m Jamiya (pronounced JA-MY-YA) and I will be your headshot photographer for the evenin…uh…day! Bios are tough to write, so I’ll give you the cliff notes!
I’m originally from Jackson, MS (yep, I do have a southern accent!). I moved to NYC seven years ago and have been shooting headshots for six of those. I graduated from Full Sail University majoring in Film and became a photographer in 2006 (how time flies). I’m a perfectionist, I love to laugh, I’m a bit of a nerd (Batman > Superman), and I love what I do!
My philosophy is that a photo shoot should be a fun and relaxed experience. I like to allow your session to unfold organically and try to avoid any cookie-cutter approaches. If you need to take a break – to hydrate, grab a snack, chat a bit, check your phone – please do. I never want you to feel rushed or overwhelmed. It’ll be like getting your headshots done by a good friend! I’m cool like that.
Best way to get started with booking me is by popping over to the contact page and filling out a short form. If you have another type of inquiry or just want to say hello, feel free to email me at [email protected].
Hope to hear from you soon!
