it’s nice to meet you

I believe that portraits should be much more than a post on social media that gets forgotten as soon as it falls off the feed. That our quirks and personalities lead to the best photographs, rather than perfect poses and forced smiles. I believe in the one-on-one relationship that is formed during the sessions with my clients and that is why I only take on a limited number of sessions per year. This allows me the time to get to know my clients and truly discover what it is that makes their lives special. It allows me the time to understand how they want to present themselves to the world and generations of their family to come.

Over the last ten years of learning my craft, I have developed relationships with many of my clients. Those relationships have bloomed into friendships that I appreciate and cherish. I believe that this is in thanks to the personal nature of how I conduct my photography business. I truly strive to provide a comfortable and personalized experience. From the first time you call to your ordering session in my comfortable home studio (and beyond!), I will be there to provide a fun, inviting and personable experience from start to finish.

If this sounds like the photography experience you’ve been looking for, reach out to me today!

Since the beginning of freshman year, I have dreaded the thought of taking senior portraits. When I met Tatum, I was instantly greeted with smiles and jokes. The first impression I received was that she was extremely easy going and personable. As we began the session, she made the whole atmosphere light and fun. Her flexibility and creative ideas made everything go smoothly. When we had finished the shoot, not only had I felt so beautiful and comfortable in my own skin, I felt that I left with a friend that day. Her reasonable prices, awesome personality, and unique artist eye make her the best choice in my opinion and since our time together I have recommended her endlessly and will continue to do so!
