'm Jamilah, a wedding & lifestyle photographer in Seattle. 

I grew up in Michigan, lived in Florida for 10 years, and now I'm living in Washington. I'm a mom of two boys. The youngest of 4 sisters. Auntie to 6 kiddos. 

I love Fall for the foliage, the scarf & boots wearing, Halloween, and the anticipation of the following holiday seasons with many gatherings -- oh and the baking! I've always loved expressing my creativity, which started out with a love for drawing...in 2nd grade I got in trouble because I was selling my artwork for a nickel...on medical paper that my mom let me reuse. When I'm shooting a wedding or any session, you'll see me smiling behind the camera...the same way I smile during editing (is that creepy?)...because as cheesy as it sounds, photography completes me! And the fact that I get to share it with others truly does bring me so much joy!




10 random facts about me!

IN following your dreams

1) I love being a mom!

2) Dental visits for me is a little worse than public speaking.

3) I'm addicted to the sound of my kids giggles.

4) Buttered popcorn + previews is a must when going to the movies.

5) I have at least 3 lip glosses in my purse at all times.

6) Chocolate + peanut butter = perfection!

7) Quality time is my love language (& food).

8) I was a teacher for 7 years before quitting to be a full time photographer. 

9) I watch reality shows while editing late at night.

10) My family is my everything! 






It's not just another wedding. Not just another family session. It's about documenting your once in a lifetime, love story. It's about capturing your family legacy, at every stage  in life. This. This is what it's about...

I'd love to connect with you over the phone or meet over coffee to hear all about your wedding details or your vision for your family session. Can't wait to hear from you!

f my style compliments your style, then we have a lot to talk about!

Thanks Jamilah! You are incredibly talented and have such an eye for capturing the most beautiful photographs. My family has come to you multiple times now and I am continually amazed at the emotions evoked by the pictures. The way that you have captured my children makes my heart well up. You pay incredible attention to detail and take into account the individuality of our family. From my maternity shoot to a family shoot with my second born, you have been able to freeze special moments in time that are otherwise fleeting. Thank you!

Jamilah was our wedding photographer and it was one of my wifes best decisions besides deciding to marry me. Her personality makes you feel comfortable, smile and laugh and her artist talent brings out your inner and outer beauty. She also goes above and beyond to make your special day amazing, so you can keep your mind at ease. In addition, her final product captures all of the most important moments and is a wonderful expression of her artist talents, which is great to remember your special day and show off to family and friends. I know it was real easy to make my wife look so beautiful, but she made me look nearly like a model. Thanks again Jamilah!!!


Jamilah is a phenomenal photographer! She is so patient and takes her time with my three children. I am always so excited to book my appointment with her because I know I will never be disappointed with her beautiful pictures. Her talent and her work is amazing. I am so happy to finally found our family photographer who lives so close by!


Jamilah is a talented family photographer and so easy and fun to work with. She captured my second daughter's newborn photos just 5 days after birth. Being a mother herself, Jamilah is patient with the time it takes to get a newborn photo-ready including frequent diaper changes, nursing, outfit and location changes. She also knows how to capture that perfect moment when the 2 year old big sister decides to cooperate. I love the beautiful photos that resulted from our photo session and I would love to work with Jamilah again.


We loved the results of our family sessions with Jamilah! She made us feel very comfortable and gave us clear direction to get some great shots. Jamilah was able to bring out the best in our young children, even when they didn’t seem like they wanted to co-operate. She has amazing attention to detail, even helping me make minor adjustments when my belt was showing or scarf was awry. Our friends and family have given us lots of flattering comments about her work. We will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer in the Seattle area.

"I've been using Jamilah as our family photographer for several years. She has blessed us with beautiful family memories from our maternity and newborn sessions and pictures throughout our Son's first year of life. We are incredibly grateful for her amazing gift of photography!! And I'm also blessed to call her a friend. We love you Jamilah!! Can't wait for the NEXT set of memories you'll create!"

Highly recommended! We are from New Orleans but got married in West Palm Beach--this means I had to choose a photographer from a distance relying on their online gallery and responsiveness. I found her passionate about photography and focused on capturing the sweetest, most intimate moments. The most important thing is that she is flexible and willing to be spontaneous when you have an idea. Great at communication and sensitive to the couples vision. An excellent choice for your wedding.

"Jamilah was our third attempt at taking our daughter's 1 year pictures. We were convinced that she wouldn't cooperate for anyone. At the time we didn't think she did much better for Jamilah...BUT, Jamilah is so patient and has this unbeliveable knack for capturing beautiful moments in photo shoot. For the last 4 years Jamilah has taken numerous pictures of our family, and we are always blown away! She is so creative and talented! We have recomended her to family and friends, and she never dissapoints."
