Hello!  My name is Mia D.  I have a love for the camera and how amazing it feels to capture moments.  I had a website {www.miaddesigns.com} for years, and I decided to let it go, as I felt more obligated to keep it up-to-date versus just loving on the images that I had.  I felt like photographs were sometimes left un~published, per se…

I decided that the focus should be on God’s gifts, not mine, not others.  I think if it is about HIS Gifts that he has Gifted us with, then it will be something that flows, not something that is forced!

I spent several years photographing weddings with forever friend, Chrissy.  {She and I developed Mia Grace Weddings}.  I would cry behind the lens, and, to me, that is God at work.  We did this as long as we could being states apart.

I spent the last few years photographing babies at the beautiful hospital here in Wilmington.  What an incredible time meeting those who I worked with and those whose doors I knocked on.  I continue to work with this group helping with behind the scenes items, but I decided to keep my photography going outside of just the hospital.  Being with those babies and meeting those families was worth every second though.

I do hope you enjoy viewing the GIFTS we have all around us!
