About Me

Photography has been a deeply authentic pursuit since I took my first class in 1980. Over the years it's been my way of keeping a journal of my life, travels, thoughts, and all that I love.

Alongside my 44 years-worth of prints and negatives, I've also gathered memorabilia and vintage artworks. These things keep the creative flame alive within me.

Below, I share an open letter to my clients as I embark on new artistic endeavors designing custom stationery. Thus, I'm not taking portrait or wedding commissions to allow space for these pursuits.

My Collected Works are available for print and some for download here. The Shop updates periodically, I hope you visit often. Thank you for stopping by.

an Open letter from Tammy

To my photography clients...

"I’ve had the immense privilege of photographing your weddings, family portraits, and businesses for over 25 years. And the time has come for me to shift my photographic eyes in new directions. It's been wonderful getting to know you and I appreciate your trust in my vision with each event and project.

Your photographs are a record of your life and mine; they'll travel beyond us through the generations and become priceless over time. Thank you for choosing me when you did, for allowing me to step inside the sacred circle of your family events. Many of you blessed me in ways that were deeply profound. I'll fondly remember the moments I've spent with each of you, always. Thank you for being part of my journey, for making it so lovely and bittersweet.

Many of the images in my Collected Works were captured at your weddings or around your portrait sessions. (one for thee, one for me) Check back every once in a while to see what I've been up to because the Shop changes with the seasons, and I'll always find beautiful light and ideas in the most unassuming places. God bless you."

"We don't make a photograph with just a camera; we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved."
