Graphic Designer, Family & Pet Photographer

Hi, I’m Tanya…

I am a creative, detail-oriented photographer with proven ability to produce award-winning images. Through my photography, I create images that tell your family or best friend’s story. I have a small studio set up for small and indoor only pets as well as babies and toddlers. My favorite studio is great outdoors, where my lighting is provided by the sun.

I have plenty of patience for your family big or small. I am a mom to two little girls and two fur kids. I will make all the silly noises I need, to get their attention.

For more pictures visit the blog link on the menu. I am not much of a blogger, but I do use it to post gallery samples!

I love photographing pets and their people <3
