Nothing brings me more joy than forever capturing life's sweetest moments and turning them into beautiful works of art.  I'm one of those right-brained creatures who eats, breathes, and sleeps with often nagging creativity, and I've always been happiest when I have the limitless outlet that photography provides.
I specialize in  maternity, newborn and family photography with a lifestyle approach so that we are capturing true connections and real moments. We can do more posing if you prefer, but I love to focus on candid moments and lots of pictures of your family playing together. I primarily work in Manhattan, KS, but I love photographing families on their own properties, so let me know where I'm headed next!


Hi friend!

I am your Manhattan, ks photographer.

"Tammy is an incredible photographer. Laid back and easy to work with. She can capture the absolute best of your family and precious moments together. Even if you’ve got a grumpy or uncooperative little one. Amazing results every time!"

“Tammy is a phenomenal photographer and worth every penny! She made us feel like we were old friends in no time, which led to such a fun and relaxed photo session. She was always concerned with the comfort of my baby and me and willing to patiently work on any shot that we wanted to try...even with the family dog! The pictures she did for our newborn are absolutely gorgeous. From answering questions before and after the session, to the photo shoot, to the pictures themselves-every aspect of working with her far exceeded our expectations!”

"We have countless photos we cherish due to Tammy's time, talent, and hard work. She is in this line of business because she truly loves it, and she is determined to ensure that her clients love their photos each and every time.
Not only does Tammy capture beautiful portrait shots, but she also captures personalities and connections between people that are genuine - whether funny or sentimental.
We love Little Leapling Photography!

“We had such a great experience from our newborn session! Tammy was very laid back and flexible with scheduling the session. At first I wasn’t sure how I would like doing the photo session in our home but now I’m so glad we did! She was so patient and I never felt rushed or stressed. She had great ideas for photos/poses and they all turned out beautifully! We LOVE our pictures and will definitely be scheduling a family session in the future!”

“I could not be anymore pleased with all the images I have received throughout the years. They fill me with happiness and tears when I look at them. Tammy takes her time to capture images that she knows you will enjoy. She is patient with children, I have four, and can get smiles out of them when no one else can! I will always cherish the pictures that I have gotten from Little Leapling. It’s like looking at pieces of my heart every time I look at a memory she has photographed upon the walls of my home.”
