"What you see in others, exist in you."
Meilene Long. Pronounced "May-Lean" but also known as "MAE" I am the owner of "Meilene Photography" and I've been beautifully perfecting the art of portraits since 2007.
I specialize in portraits but love photographing just about everything. My beginning in photography started at the age of 6 with my first barbie camera (I still have the photos!)
My professional career began at the bright age of 16 during yearbook class. I was told I had an eye for greatness so I took that and worked very hard to develop my eye as I continue to do every day. Throughout the years I had mentors who really made me into the photographer I am. Today, I do my own mentoring with aspiring photographers.
Serving Northern California with a genuine heart and bubbly personality, I spend time getting to know all of my clients and treat everyone as a friend. A photo session with me is not just about "taking the photos" but an experience that you will forever hold close to your heart.
A little more about me, I live in the SF bay area with my family whom I love very much along with my fur babies. I work as an Assistant Recreation Coordinator Monday through Friday and enjoy doing photography most weekends, trips to target and visiting the redwoods of Northern California. I've worked with children of various ages for 9+ years and I'm so thankful to do things I am truly passionate about. I also do many side trades such as website building, pet sitting, organizing, babysitting, house sitting and some other odd and ends. My camera has been a huge part of my life for many years and continues to be. I am grateful for any photography experience I receive and I look forward to being a part of your next special memory!
