Kari Hester's photography career began when the equestrian business she and her fiancé ran constantly needed photos for shows, sales, and marketing. After acquiring a camera and a passion for photography, she began to receive requests for family portraits, maternity shoots, and engagement photos. Now, she gladly photographs a variety of subjects against natural backgrounds. In addition to her portraits of horses, people, and animals, she offers logo and web design, video editing, and social-network management.
Mustapha Moussa has a passion for documentation. After a stint capturing local stories as a videographer for an African television station, he began working with still photography, eventually coming to America to pursue studies in photojournalism and broadcast media at the University of Tennessee. Today, his keen eye for detail and journalistic understanding of visual narrative help him capture the deep emotion and kinetic movement of weddings and get-togethers. After posing groups for photos or catching natural smiles from the sidelines, the expert returns to MIA Photographers to create online proofs, CDs, and prints ideal for showing people what you looked like before your head got stuck in a jar of molasses.

With a knack for understated hues, a sharp focus, and a vintage finish, Yana trains her camera lens on weddings and portraiture. She artfully navigates outdoor settings, harnessing natural light to the photo session’s benefit as she shoots family portraits among fall foliage and cobblestone walkways. To best represent her subjects, she coaxes natural-looking expressions and incorporates provocative props, such as vintage suitcases or a family’s prized classic car. She also applies her thoughtful vision to portraits of couples and children as well as fashion and modeling sessions, using her ability to turn subjects' bad side and good side into their good side and totally fabulous side.
