How it all started

My initials are MIA, for Mohamed Ijaz Alli, so MIA Photo Design seemed like the perfect name.  I went to godaddy and purchased the domain, got a zenfolio account and jumped into building a photography website.

If you had asked me a few years ago what I'd be doing, I would not have guessed being a photographer.  At the time, I was working my way up the corporate ladder, and guessed that I would probably have been in the same field-public affairs/government/non-profit.  I felt burned out after 10 years, and left my job in DC, moved to New York and became an insurance broker, and ended up traveling for a while.  

A few months after my daughter, Aria, was born, I brought a Nikon D300 and it reignited my love of photography.  I have been lucky to have been able to pursue this path.  I've learned a lot about photography since then, editing programs, website development and SEO marketing.  I've also been lucky to meet awesome photographers who I regularly collaborate with.  Together we focus on on-location photography-usually at the beach, parks and other outdoor environments and cityscapes, weddings, family and professional events.  

Today I want to focus on my first model, my inspiration, the most beautiful creature I've laid my eyes upon, my baby girl Aria.  She was my practice subject, and it was awesome that she couldn't complain.  I didn't buy my Nikon until a few months after she was born, so some of the earlier pictures are actually with my iphone-Iphonography is the term, there are many awesome pictures taken with smart phones.  I still edited them in lightroom, which is also a good way to stay organized.  I'm learning photoshop and will soon offer an editing service to interested customers.

I hope you enjoy my work.

PortraitsPortraitsThis service is perfect for business professionals, who need a picture for their business cards or website. For those who want professional pictures for social media profiles and dating websites, or for those who simply want to capture a moment of time, of themselves, as they are.

I aim to capture genuine, emotional images that shows individuals as they really are: smiling and happy, without looking forced. While I always aim to get a classic look, the majority of the session is designed to get a variety of poses, so that you will end up with several different looks and feels.

My home studio is located in Coral Springs, for professional and corporate shots on neutral background. For real estate brokers, I prefer to shoot outdoors, capturing aspects of homes in the neighborhood.
