{TUTU PHOTOGRAPHER FEATURE} Misty Jones Photography located in Florida



Introducing Misty Jones Photography.....

This week's TUTU FEATURE PHOTOGRAPHER is someone I have known for quite some time and consider a friend of mine, and thats "Misty Jones Photography". So I felt that she should be one of our first features on the blog.

I rememember several years ago when Misty took some of my first professional pictures I was starting the business and she was starting her own business and even then I knew Misty was going to have a great business her pictures were fabulous from the start!

Misty serves areas of Florida like Brandon, Riverview, South Tampa and many of those surrounding areas.

Her website is: http://www.mistyjonesphotography.com/
You can read her blog at: http://mistyjonesphotography.blogspot.com/

For this week's feature I asked Misty a few questions and here are her responses:
We asked Misty a few questions and here are her responses:

What is your speciality?
Misty: I love working with children. I love the different expressions they give you and just that genuine childhood pureness. I also love photographing newborns, high school seniors, couples and pregnant woman.

Do you prefer to shoot indoors or out?
Misty: A bit of both. I prefer to work with walking aged children outside where they can run and be free. I just follow them around while they play and be silly. As for newborns and maternity I mostly photograph them inside but I also like to head outdoors for some more original shots.

Do you have any tips for other aspiring photographers?
Misty: Don't rush into things. Take your time. Learn your camera, learn how to run a business (marketing, sales, accounting, editing, etc....), get everything all set up and THEN start portfolio building. I did the complete opposite and I have to tell you that its crazy when your trying to learn it all at once. It's a lot to take in. Keep in mind that you probably spend about 1% of time shooting and the rest of the time you are editing, placing orders, packaging, marketing, etc....

What is your favorite thing about Hannah's Tutus?
Misty: I love Lisa's creativity. She is always coming up with new things and her tutus are some of the fullest I have ever come across. They just feel better then some of the thinner/cheaper tutus that I have come across. I also love that Lisa has teamed up with other great sellers like Bella Claire Baby for custom tops and bloomers (http://www.bellaclairebaby.com/),
Stella and Dot with their new little girls jewelry line (http://www.stelladot.com/sites/laurengoldman/productcatalog?page=productlisting.category&categoryId=1156) and The Little Red Wagon for hair bows (http://www.thelittleredwagon.etsy.com/). Together they make quite a team and you really turn your daughter into the princess she always wanted to be when you mix and match all these adorable items!

If you have been on the http://www.hannahstutus.com/ website or on my etsy page then you have seen Misty's work she does many of my business pictures for me, but I picked a few favorites to share with you.
