Proud mama, adoring wife, sports junkie, disciple of music, student of history, writer of words, believer in peace, and photographer of the offbeat.

Maryland Girl

Born in Prince George's County, raised in Anne Arundel County, college educated in Frederick County, and currently residing in Baltimore County, Jamie is a Maryland girl to her core. After spending the first part of her career as an award-winning journalist in Delaware, Jamie now focuses her time on entrepreneurial endeavors including Jamie-Leigh Bissett, LLC, Maryland's premiere Offbeat Photographer.

We Are Family

Though not official partners in the business, Jamie's husband, Steve, and daughter, Julia, often accompany her to shoots, shows, and shenanigans, aligning with the family's goal of working together.

This collaborative spirit is also apparent in Jamie-Leigh Bissett Photography where every friend is a potential client, and every client is a potential friend. I hope you'll get in touch and discover how fulfilling it can be to collaborate on heirloom art together.



Steve's Headshot

Philosopher and ploughman, Steve is a designer for an environmental engineering firm by day, and the Gift of Beard by night. He enjoys fruit and vegetable gardening, playing the drums, and always being right. His encouragement and optimism are the fuel that feeds the family's creative fire.

Headshot Photography

Perhaps the single most amazing kid on the planet, Julia is a born leader and future art teacher. She enjoys building Legos, singing and dancing to her favorite Lorde song, and kicking butt at karate. With an aptitude for making friends easily, Julia will no doubt bring a smile to the faces of everyone she meets.
