Hi, my name is Tonya!
Hello! My love of photography started when I was twelve, as I grew up watching my grandfather taking photos of me and the world around us.
I have been behind the lens of a camera for nearly sixteen years! Every click of my camera is a memory captured forever that would otherwise be gone in a fleeting moment.
I take pride in every photo that I take. Each one is hand-edited by me. When someone passes on, photos are all we have left of them and for that reason, I never apologize for always being behind the camera. Photography is truly my passion. It is the most relaxing chaos you will ever experience and I couldn't think of a better way to spend my days than thriving in the chaos of a wedding or the screaming of a toddler that would rather be anywhere else.
When I'm not behind the camera, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our son; Oliver. I also spend a lot of my time writing and, occasionally, editing. I have previously worked at Walt Disney World and I strongly advocate for children with Autism and other special needs. <3
