I'm so glad you came by! Here's the crash course on me: I'm a SC native (though I've bounced around da bit) who moved to RVA in September 2023! I've basically had a camera in my hand my whole life. When it came time to decide a career path there was no question about what I'd be choosing. I received my BFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2018. I live  with my husband Richie and our australian shepherds Charlie & Ozzie, who we're absolutely obsessed with. Apart from photography, my other passions include interior decorating, sustainable fashion, and self improvement. I love learning new skills and trying to become the best version of myself. 

hey, i'm mia! 
richmond's newest photographer

FYI: Mia is my first name, lee is my last. people often think my whole name is my first name!


Most importantly because it makes me happy. For me, there's no feeling comparable to making a really great image. 

why i do what i do


Because you deserve killer pictures to document your human experience. We're only here for so long and I believe everyone should have photo heirlooms to leave behind that show off their personality and style.


I'm always looking for new friends. I work by creating a fun environment where my clients can feel 100% comfortable and themselves when they're being photographed. This way of operating makes everyone who comes in front of my lens not just a client, but hopefully a homie!

I love kids. I used to be a nanny, so I've spent countless hours talking to kids and becoming a family photographer was another way to keep that flow of entertainment in my life.


Pets!! Nuff said right? Hanging out with animals all day is an absolute dream. You can read more about my love for pet photography on my pets page & in this blog post!
