Be it an expecting mother waiting to meet her unborn, a sweet and innocent new life, an explorative toddler, a curious child, or the entire family, I love helping families make memories. With today’s technology, almost anyone can take a photo; I don’t have to tell you that. In my heart, what I do is not about the photo. It is about you.
Not everyone can make a connection with a child. I love figuring out what makes tiny humans tick–how to get them to smile or even intensely stare at that big box in front of my face. I love to take those unique moments, in the most beautiful settings, and edit them to perfection. Most of all, I love when people choose me for my style of work and choose to hang the art I have created of their families on the walls of their home.
To connect with a child it first takes kindness, then a little playfulness, and finally a huge dose of patience. I didn’t realize that my patience is a strength of mine until my clients began pointing it out. That’s just me. I have always loved kids. I’m a pretty laid back person and like to let children lead the way. That’s how I capture them for you. Just as they are, maybe with a smidge of ham and cheese on the side if they are up for that too.
I have always loved creating images. For years, video was my passion. The techniques behind videography and video editing are very similar in principle to still photography. When I discovered this small fact for myself, I was hooked on photography. I invested in my first DSLR camera and brought it with me everywhere as I learned to translate my videography skills to photography. It was after my husband and I welcomed our first child into our lives in 2011 that I realized my true niche: photographing children and families.
My business is somewhat new. I started chasing my own dreams early in 2013. Before that, I grew up in Southern Maryland. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication focusing on Media Production and Criticism at George Mason University in 2006. After college, I decided to call Northern Virginia home and went on to work at USA TODAY LIVE, the television arm of the newspaper. I continued my career in Television at Gannett Broadcasting and later moved into the Advertising field for two years before starting Jamie Romaezi Photography.
It would be my pleasure to photograph your family as it grows. Please contact me today to book your session!
