I bet you're here because you want to know: "who is this girl who loves taking life-style pictures?" 


Hey, I'm Tanya!


I'm a photographer from Ottawa taking genuine pictures of life and love, starting from here at home - to wherever planes, trains, boats, and automobiles will take me. 


I seriously love to travel - and enjoy all my adventures with the one I love, otherwise its no adventure at all!


My husband Brandon and I are happier and most content in each others company, at the end of the long hard work day. Whether we are sitting on the beach watching the sunset with a drink in hand, cooking dinner together with his DJ playlist on, or curled up on the couch fighting over the affection of our goofy Holland lop bunny!                    


I am a big dreamer! But I'm an even bigger believer that if we drive our dreams forward, with the motivation and effort - we can make even our biggest dreams into realities! 


I have a sweet tooth, and nothing beats homemade goods! So, I bake...often! Pies are my preference, but wait, there's more: cinnamon rolls, biscotti, crème brûlée. You name it, and I will whip it up for you with love. (My mouth is watering right now, is your mouth watering?) I enjoy baking, not only because baked goods are delicious, but also because I'm very much a perfectionist, and baking is very precise. 


I was a little ballerina since the age of five, and have always dreamed about growing up to be some kind of artist. Now, here I am: a photographer. I count myself very fortunate to be doing something that I love! 


My favourite quote - 

"You never see the hard days in a photo album, but those are the ones that get you from one happy snapshot to the next."




I bet now you're wondering: "why do I want this girl to be my photographer?" 

Do you love those photos of authentic moments? The ones that trigger memories, maybe even your senses? So do I!


I aim for exactly that with my style of photography, I'm a lifestyle wedding and family photographer. I focus on making you feel comfortable and natural by letting you be who you are as a couple, or as a family. Capturing the interaction between one another and letting that show through in your photographs. I will make this experience fun for you! What I mean by "fun", not taking those "fun shots" - having everyone simultaneously jumping in the air! (you know the one) No, I mean, you're actually going to have fun, and hopefully won't even notice I'm there.  


If it sounds to you like we'd make a good fit, then why don't you click on over to the contact page! I'm looking forward to hearing from you over there, and I can't wait to hear about your big dreams, and about your story, and telling it through photographs.
