Meet Tami

I’m a visual storyteller based out of the St Pete/Tampa Bay area. I grew up in the midwest, but always craved travel and adventure in my life. While I’ve done lots of travel over the years, I decided in 2014, that I was ready for the next big venture.  I wanted to live in a place where palm trees swayed, and I could watch the golden light of the sun sink into the depths of the sea. I wanted to be in a place that there was a deeply rooted community and a love and appreciation for the arts. And then I found St Petersburg, Florida. This place sets my artistic soul on fire! (And I frequently post images of it all over my Instagram…haha).

When it comes to my photography, I find myself gravitating

towards capturing the emotional connections between my clients. I am a woman that loves deeply, so it makes my heart burst to see this warmth  & happiness between my couples and families. I love imagery that doesn’t just show a scene from your life but elicits a sense of nostalgia…to take you back immediately to that moment in time. My heart melts when I’m able to help my boudoir clients learn to let go of insecurities, and finally, realize what a beautiful woman each of them is.

I’m not much for fluff. I prefer simplicity, with natural light and shadows, sun flare over flash, and keeping props at bay. My work is from the heart, for the heart. I want it to be all about you and& your story.  Let’s make it a bestseller.

My Philosophy

I’m fond of capturing authentic moments with genuine expressions and laughs. I love working with natural light, and your unique & personal surroundings to provide you with the most candid moments.

I prefer the raw & real over fake smiles and canned poses.

I want my photography to record the precious details that pass you by each day. These are often the little things that you will look back on years later with an “I remember when…”.

I want to capture the way you live, laugh, & love. Life is meant to be experienced fully, and love, to be felt deeply. I want you to feel the emotional connections in my images, not just see them.

Life is but small fleeting moments, and it’s my job and my passion to capture them so in the future you can look back and treasure these beautiful moments. I want to create your visual legacy.
