Mikaela Martin is an Australian documentary and fine art photographer, based in South Florida, USA.
Before picking up a camera professionally, Mikaela was an actor and filmmaker. This work and practice is very much at play in her photography. She is interested in the ways we confront our own fragility and wonder; both from within, and through the people and spaces we inhabit.
Much of Mikaela’s photography explores her relationship with her two young daughters, featured most recently in her ongoing project “Good Lord, leave your Mother alone”.
Mikaela’s work has been published, awarded, and exhibited locally and internationally. She is a member of Women Photograph. www.mikaelamartin.com

Her work shines light on the realities and beauty of the processes experienced by her participants.

Stephana Ferrell started her professional photography career in 2006 as an Orlando wedding photographer, specializing in South Asian weddings. She continued with that specialty for almost 15 years.
In 2017 she started to explore the realm of family photography with a focus on storytelling and real moments.
2020 was the first year in almost a decade she was the sole owner of a photography business, The Inspired Storytellers. She spent her time during the pandemic exploring her voice as an independent artist and working on a number of personal projects. To date, her work has been on exhibit in Texas, multiple cities in Florida, and a virtual exhibit dedicated to documentary family photography.
Tiffany Luong is a Los Angeles documentary and commercial/editorial photographer. Her work is the thoughtful internalization of her subjects’ perspectives to reflect back to them the stories they’ll need later. She takes an anthropological participant-observer approach to create storytelling photographs that feel alive.
Tiffany’s start with photography began during her rite of passage backpacking through China when her now-husband gave her an engagement ring and a DSLR. Tiffany has photographed over 350 families and has been ranked in the international Top 100 Family Photographers by the Family Photojournalist Association for 3 years in a row and in the top 10 in the United States by This is Reportage: Family. The true awards are seeing her photos tangibly gracing the walls and shelves of many families’ homes, which mean more to her than anything. She currently lives in Alhambra with her husband, 6-year-old son, and 2-year-old daughter in a tiny (498 sq ft!) home.
