Wavemakers, Tri-State Gymnastics, the Carnegie Public Library, the YMCA of Steuben County…these are just a few of the places that have kept me crazy busy over the last few months. Between the kid’s activities, school, and trying to keep healthy food on the table, it feels like I haven’t had a second to breathe. I’m […]
Yes, it has been a LONG time since my last post here but I am still squeezing portrait sessions into my insanely busy schedule. I’m so glad we made this photo session happen! And I’m always super excited to see these two girls. I’ve photographed them since they were just little babies and at this […]
So I sit down this evening with a glass of Smoking Loon Cabernet Sauvignon (it’s not bad for cheap wine and everyone needs to have a favorite bottle of cheap wine on hand for not so special occasions) and a still warm from the oven oatmeal raisin cookie (or two) to write this blog post. […]
I’m not really sure what to say about this family. I keep writing and deleting. I’m trying to focus and get to the point but it’s hard to find the right words. Maybe that’s why I’m a photographer. I’m much better with pictures than words. So they were new clients last year (check out their […]
Tonya Marie Photography enjoyed photographing another fabtastic (see previous post for explanation of that word) family in Angola, IN. I’m so lucky to have the most amazing and beautiful families in front of my lens. This family is the picture perfect example of the Matching But Not© philosophy. Each family member has their own style […]
Three sweet sisters visited me today for studio portraits. I could have squealed when I met them (but I didn’t want to scare anyone) because they are just that cute. I love how different they are…in looks and personalities. And to top it off, their mom brought a fabtastic (so that <= was a typo […]
Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to meet and photograph this amazing family through the Celebrating Adoption program. I always enjoy working with my adoptive families and this one was no exception. With three boys, a baby, and a camera you never quite know what to expect. But they were perfect. Picture perfect actually.
I love my repeat clients. I know I say it often but I’m saying it again. It’s awesome to see these kids grow up and I’m honored that my clients trust me to photograph these important parts of childhood. Because we all know, they grow up way too fast. And you don’t get these moments […]
Shh…can you keep a secret? I had a Celebrating Adoption session and it was fantastically fun. Do I really want you to keep it a secret? No! But here are a few things you might want to consider if you are interested in a CA session. I get tons of requests for sessions and unfortunately […]
This has been the year of the family for me. I have had the pleasure of photographing so many families this year and I’m totally loving it! No, it’s not always easy. And yes, it requires a lot of patience. But the results are always worth it.
And please don’t be guilty of putting off your […]
