Now you can purchase Gift certificates!


I’m very happy to announce that now you will be able to purchase these beautiful gift certificates for any kind of session I offer for the value of your choice!

gift certificate -Syma K. Photography






This one in particular is being sent by a sister to her brother and sister in law (first-time parents!) for a newborn photography session! How sweet is that!

But these would make for a wonderful shower gift from one person or a whole group of friends and family. Those cute little onesies would grow small, booties no longer fit their tiny feet but memories preserved as art from those first few days would last forever. This could make for the most thoughtful gift.

These would also make great gifts for parents with young children to use at their birthday parties! Why not let parents enjoy the party with their young ones and let me capture all the details, the laughs the candles, the cake and the excitement of the event?

The options are endless. Family session, children session, events, newborns, products, models – you can contact me with any request and I will mail out the gift certificate beautifully wrapped and with all the love you have sent to the lucky recipient.

Certificates can be purchased to the value of your choice!

When Peacocks Dance . . .

Color, love, Season


I had always heard, that when it rains peacocks dance. I had always been curious to find out if this was true.

So a few days ago on a rainy day, I took my camera to pay some peacocks a visit.

And then I waited as the beautiful creature sat there in all his majesty.


Every time he moved, I felt my heart fill with excitement, ‘He’s going to dance!’

But it kept raining, and I kept waiting with my jacket over my camera to keep it from getting wet.

I had a feeling he didn’t know about the dancing-in-the-rain-peacocks legend, and was quite close to sharing some stories with him.

Even though he enjoyed posing for the camera showing off his beautiful feathers, and came very close to breaking into a dance I’m sure, this peacock did not dance – not for this photographer, not on that rainy day.

And while I had started to doubt if he even knew how to dance, the lady with the crown made her entrance. . .

. . .and he showed me that he might not know the rain dance, but he still did know love.

For more Sundays in my City visit Unknown Mami.
