Welcome to Oh Snaps Mish Photography!​

I'm Mishawn Simms; a passionate photographer based in the vibrant city of Los Angeles. My journey into the world of photography has been a captivating one, shaped by a diverse range of experiences and a relentless pursuit of my creative calling.​

My Story: My path to photography was not a direct one; it meandered through different careers and life chapters. I began with a personal training company, ventured into real estate, and even worked as a middle school counselor. But something was always missing, something beyond the conventional expectations of a career. It took time, but I realized that my true passion lay in capturing the world through the lens of my camera. Photography, for me, is not just a means to make a living; it's a profound source of happiness. It has opened my eyes to the extraordinary beauty that surrounds us every day, grounding me in the present amidst a world of distractions. More than anything, photography allows me to help people preserve their most cherished memories and create unforgettable moments.​

My Approach: What sets my photography apart is not just technical expertise, but the ability to connect with my subjects. Whether it's a close-up portrait or a candid street scene, I pride myself on finding unique entry points into each subject's essence. I draw from my background in motivational interviewing, active listening, and good old-fashioned patience to create images that capture the true spirit of the moment.​

My Style: I enhance the depth of my work with rich, deep tones and clean compositions, ensuring that the subject takes center stage in the story. When you view my photographs, I hope that you experience the same happiness and wonder that I felt when creating each image.​

Explore My World: Feel free to browse my portfolio, book a session, or order a print. Every click of the shutter is a journey into the beauty and wonder of life, and I can't wait to share these moments with you.​Thank you for visiting, and I look forward to capturing your unique story through the lens of my camera.​

Warm regards, Mish
