Behind the Scenes

Many thanks to my clients for providing these cell phone snaps of our sessions!  And many thanks to Media Electric Inc for the behind-the-scenes video.  These give you a bit of a peek at what goes into a portrait session with Mira Whiting Photography.  Many of these are from newborn or Baby’s First Year package sessions, along with one from a headshot session.

I have also had the pleasure of being a guest on several podcasts, talking about portraits and business.  You can hear me on People Behind the Business: Ep. 19: Getting Prepared for Your First Photoshoot and Creatives Crushing Anxiety: Capturing History with Mira Whiting    You can also see me in this segment from Arlington Community Media.


“Mira did a newborn session at our home with our two-week old baby and her big sister (age 3.5 years). I chose Mira because of her amazing portfolio, and I am SO happy with the results. There are so many shots that I love! I was really nervous about doing a session with such a new baby, but Mira knew just what to do, how to wrap and pose baby (and sleep deprived parents) so that everyone remained calm and happy. She was especially good with our older daughter, who was still very much adjusting to having a new baby at home. Mira is incredibly patient, calm, and competent. I will definitely schedule another session with her.”
