Let Me Introduce Myself
Happy Friday! Welcome to #IntroductionFriday. I currently live in the Woodbridge, Virginia (a suburb of Washington D.C.; in Northern Virginia), but I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, AL. Yes, the home of the Alabama Crimson Tide. I am married, since December, 1994. I have four sons (two are angels). Traveling and new adventures are definitely two of my most favorite things to do. This is the main reason I joined the United States Air Force after graduating from high school. I wanted to see as much of the world as possible. Photography is my full time job, and I couldn't be happier. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them document their legacy for future generations; also the smiles. As I love to laugh and smile.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Many of you are new visitors and probably don’t know who the girl behind the camera is, so here I am to say hello! I’m so glad you’re here! Those of you who don’t know me, here are 10 fun facts about your Northern Virginia Family Photographer:
1️⃣I’m originally from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but living a military life takes me all over the world. I’m currently a Virginia gal! I truly love it here and I know I’m going to miss it when it’s time to leave.
2️⃣I served 10+ years in the Air Force. So, I understand military lingo.
3️⃣Before joining the military, I worked at two jobs. (Walmart and Burger King)
4️⃣I graduated college with a B.S. in Hospitality, Event and Tourism Management.
5️⃣I’ve been married for 24 years.
6️⃣I’m totally #TeamCanon 📷 .
7️⃣I went to Culinary School.
8️⃣I love watching sports; especially Alabama Football.
9️⃣Traveling is my fave! I’ve visited 37 states and 3 countries✈️. I visited Paris, France this summer.
1️⃣0️⃣The kitchen is my favorite room in the house (if only I could put my bed in there); I love to cook.

Hello, I'm Tamieka, owner of Tamieka Smith Photography. I would love to help you plan your family's sunset portraits in Northern Virginia (or surrounding area) or photograph your military ceremony — possibly both. Working with families and military members is my specialty. I hope you'll look at my recent work and all that’s available for you. I hope we're able to work together and I’m able to document your family’s history.
