A note from the photographer...
Hi! I'm Tammie. I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, and I currently reside in Champaign Illinois. I spent my undergrad chasing ears of corn at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I hold my B.A in Psychology and Spanish lit and art. You're probably wondering "hmmm...not photography. Curious Indeed." All I can say is I found this passion along the way. That is why, although I certainly pay my bills working as the talented orthodontic clinician that I am, I purposefully find time to cater to this labor of love. As credentials go, I feel you must know that I've fine-tuned my skills working in corporate photography as both photographer, as well as studio manager overseeing a team of other talented photographers! Though, I currently enjoy freelance and the freedom that comes with the terrain. <3
In a fewer words, I think photography is pretty amazing! The contrast, the angles, the creation!!! But none of that gives the reason for why I do it. The idea of helping individuals and families capture memories warms my soul! I think making authentic memories is one of the most important things one can do for themselves and their loved ones.
There is literally nothing better than an honest moment. <3
