Introduction: Making you look your best, feel your best and have a great time doing it is always what I get out of a session. I do things a little different in that I do full service sessions…from styling (I have many awesome wonderful pieces I will pull for you, and also go through your options too) to make up and coaching through. I started in front of camera but, also grew up with a top Hollywood photographer who taught me so much about the way to move the body, angles and how to truly capture my amazing models (that doesn’t mean you have to be a professional). From my career I decided to go on to be a therapist and life coach. Though being a healer comes naturally for me…I find the best healing is capturing happy moment, making beautiful memories and having fun! I collaborate before session with my clients to get a feel of what they want portrayed in the art we create together. Having this as my career gives me the flexibility to be a great mom to my Neurodivergent little boy…So, I couldn’t be happier to work with you, because I truly love doing this.

This was my first time to have professional photos done. I was worried because I didn’t know how to pose and wasn’t sure if I would cause issues for the photographer. It took me only 2 minutes to relax from these worries after meeting Tanya. She is professional, calm, and absolutely enjoys what she does which made me calm and allowed us to do the shoot. The final product looked better than I could have asked for and already made plans to go back for more photos. Absolute best.

I hired Tanya for a maternity shoot for my second baby and wow! My pictures came out amazing! They were everything I wanted them to be and more. I mentioned this was my second pregnancy because I had my first son with me in the shoot (my 22month old) and he was just not having it, he was grumpy and didn't want to cooperate so I just wasn't sure how the shots were going to come out. But, Tanya was such a pro, she managed to take these incredible shots of me by myself and with my toddler! I also loved that she directed me on how to pose and gave me tips on how to hold my head and upper body to make sure that I looked good in every photo. And now I have these amazing pictures that are so incredibly special to me. I am so glad I made the investment to get professional pictures taken. I am definitely going to hire her again to take family pictures with the new baby.

Tanya did such an amazing job at taking my family’s prom and graduation photos. She was so personable and made the overall experience incredibly enjoyable. Her photos are extremely professional and I will most definitely take all of our photo needs with her from now on!
