Happy 3/21. Today is World Down Syndrome Day. A day to celebrate people with 3 copies of the 21st chromosome. And today I’m celebrating my beautiful niece. Miss you lots…and yes, these are photos from Christmas. Guess I need to get back to blogging. That, and take another trip to Texas.
I do believe she is […]
Our world was turned upside down on April 19, 2010. And by “our” I mean my family. We are close even when thousands of miles and a giant ocean separate us. It was on this date that we found out my sister was pregnant with a baby who has Down Syndrome. Since then, lots has […]
I just got back from visiting my newest niece in Austin, Texas. I have so much to catch up on and am certain I will be searching for the toothpicks to prop open my eyes tomorrow morning. But I have lots of people who are (im)patiently waiting to see newborn portraits. And. Well. Who can […]
This handsome 6 month old baby visited Tonya Marie at the studio in Angola, IN. How lucky am I to get my camera on this cutie patootie! 6 month olds are one of my favorite ages to photograph. They are curious, cute, and so charming…plus they usually can’t crawl away so I have a captive […]
This beautiful little newborn was just 5 days old for her first photo session with Tonya Marie Photography. There is just something so irresistible about newborns. So warm and snuggley. To all the new moms and dads out there, make sure you take the time to enjoy these precious and fleeting moments during your babies […]
Spring must be coming, right?!? Well, the calendar now says March and I have lots of people ready to schedule summer sessions, so it must be. In honor of spring, we did some updating to the official Tonya Marie Photography website so pop on over there and take a peek.
And don’t forget to check back […]
It’s portrait season and I’ve been busy. I’m almost done with sessions for 2009 and I’m already starting to schedule for 2010! That is such a crazy good feeling to have clients planning that far in advance. I’ve been working like crazy editing, ordering, shipping, and delivering portraits. Meanwhile on the home front, Mount Laundry […]
The beach in South Haven, Michigan was the perfect setting for this sweet family photo session. I had the pleasure of photographing this little guy as a newborn and was so excited to see how he has grown. I was delighted to see his sparkling blue eyes, adorable crinkly nose, and such a charming personality. […]
Ahh…you just have to love a fresh, newborn baby? This little guy was very new to the world for his portrait session at only 4 days old. Big thanks to his mom and dad for contacting me so soon after he was born. It really makes working with the newest bundles much easier. Plus those […]
I have photographed with this family several times over the years and I look forward to each session. Mom always comes with amazing clothing choices: Matilda Jane (not pictured…hey, this is a sneak peek!) and Gap to name a few. Plus watching the girls grow and being able to record those precious memories is such […]
