Thank you for visiting my blog!

There's not enough time for me to unload all of my creativity and ramblings in blog form, but I doubt you have enough time to read them, anyway! So, I'll do my absolute best to only share what is most likely to benefit you and help you get to know me a little better.

While I'm still in the process of moving my blog posts from my old site, you can find a variety of client galleries, photography tips, personal stories, and more. 
Have a burning question for me that you'd love to see me answer in blog form?

Hi, I'm Tammy!

I have a beautiful maternity session to share with you! I absolutely love the look of matte edits. They are whimsical and soft…nostalgic. I know that this is a fad, so I usually only edit a full gallery in matte for low light indoor sessions (like births) where I feel that neutralizing that dark space […]
