…on a more personal note
"Working with Mia is always a pleasure! She brings a sophisticated yet fun energy with her. She is incredibly talented and proves to be so with each photo she takes. I would definitely recommend shooting with her!" - Casidee G.
My name is Mia, and I am a Denver, CO fine art studio portrait photographer. I specialize in beauty, maternity, branding portraits & headshots. I use my art as a way to speak my truth. Although I am based out of Denver, I have a love affair with traveling, and love visiting places like New York, Los Angeles, Florida, and Seattle for photo sessions. To me, photography is not a one-size-fits-all cliche. Your portrait session will celebrate everything about you that makes you the vibrant human that you are. Photography is not just about documenting our lives. It’s about reclaiming who we are, after society wreaks havoc on our self-worth and peace of mind. Let me be a mirror to help you see yourself how the rest of us see you; a beautiful, enigmatic human.
…why i do what i do
Growing up in the foster system in the Denver Metro area, I needed a distraction and photography became that distraction. I used my camera as a way to create the kind of world that I craved and desired; full of light, beauty and vibrancy. The hobby of photography that I turned to as a child, turned into a passion and then a business in my adult years. I am drawn to spitfires who take each day head on, and want to kick ass at everything they do. After a few years of finding my style and niche, I finally found that the people I connect to the most are the ones like me; fierce, creative, unapologetic people who would do anything to show others the beauty that they see in the world.
