Families & Kids

Tanya is a wonderful, amazing photographer! She did an excellent job to make my family picture perfect. I would highly recommend her as very professional and accommodating. She’s such a natural that she was able to capture perfect shots of my 5-year-old son and 10-month-old baby daughter. Now, we have perfect family portrait. I simply love her personality and photography!

Tanya is truly a gem; one of a kind. Her charming and lively personality as well as her love and eye for photography make working with her an absolute pleasure. Not only was she able to capture the shots that perfectly describe my 3 month old baby’s personality, but she was able to do it in less than 30 minutes! Images I had been trying to take and couldn’t. These perfect moments (now memories) are and will continue to be remembered and cherished thanks to Tanya.

We had such a great time, doing this photoshoot with Tanya! The photoshoot itself was done very professionally, with lots of creative input from the photographer. Saigon supplied with amazing scenery for the photos, and the photographer managed to take it to the next level capturing the amazing feeling of the local city life! Tanya selected the best pictures for us and edited them. It resulted in a lot of great pictures, which we’ll happily keep as memories for the rest of our lives. Thank you a lot for this great experience!

Tanya set up a mini shoot with us- my husband, our one year old daughter, and me. She was so much fun to work with! We didn’t have any particular style or specific poses or ideas, so we weren’t sure what to expect. Tanya suggested poses for us, and took lots of pictures in between when we weren’t posing. She captured so much in such a short time, and we all went home happy- even the one year old! Tanya let us choose our favorite photos later that day, and she had the final photos ready a couple days later. Not only do we have beautiful photos to mark our daughter’s first birthday, we also have a happy experience to go with those photos.

Tanya did such an amazing job on my son’s senior photos. He was not the most willing and enthusiastic model, yet she was able to capture very unique and artistic shots in a very casual and unposed manner. She worked with us all through the process to make sure she was able to meet both our expectations. The photos came out beautiful and are a fabulous keepsake of both his senior year, as well as our time in Vietnam. My only problem is, there are so many to choose from! I love them all!!

Travel & More

I was gifted a photo tour with Tanya for Christmas and had a great time. She has a knack for finding incredible candid shots, and her simple tips upgraded my photography more in three hours than I’ve been able to do in two years...her class/tour re-inspired me to get out and snap photos of a place I’d been taking for granted for too long.

Small Businesses & Beyond

We’ve been working with Tanya for product shots to launch our ethical fashion business with a collection of handbags. One of the many things I love about Tanya is her ability to tell a story through a photo. She puts in the effort to understand the atmosphere we want to create and then follows up with incredible shots that bring our products to life. She is thorough, thoughtful, creative, dedicated and fun! It’s been a great experience working with her.

Tanya as a person is an amazing individual. Very dynamic, creative, personable. All the right things at the right place. On top of that, she has an amazing talent for photography and ‘visualizing’ the shots she’s taking and build stories around them. A shot is not taken if the result can’t make up a story. As a result, it gives amazing photographies that are not only gorgeous but also full of life and absolutely usable as material for your content or storytelling. If you’re looking for a photographer to bring your product or business or anything to life, Tanya’s the right person to talk to. You won’t be disappointed.

Tanya did a photo shoot session for Cathay Pacific Team including our Country Manager and myself. We were very happy with the results and the quality of her work. Tanya’s style fits our brand image requirement very well as she also knew what worked and suited best for us. The whole experience was seamless. We highly recommend Tanya for any of your professional portrait requirements. Thank you Tanya!
