Hello and thank you for taking the time to view my work.
I'm Tami...wife, photographer of relationships, artist, philanthropist & equestrian.
My inspiration comes from the stories around me. In books, movies & art. Walks with my girls (firkins) Cady & Clarice, time spent in the barn with Wild Storm, conversations with friends and of course being with my husband, Chad. I believe that life is about experiences, relationships and ultimately love.
These things certainly are what fuels the passion to make beautiful fine art photographs. So that, in turn, my clients can have photographic artifacts that they find beautiful and inspiring. Photographs that can fill living and work spaces, bringing joy to the viewer.
Philanthropy is a cornerstone of my life. In addition to tithing I love giving back with my photography. In 2014 I started the Lifestyle Dogs project. Giving shelter dogs (from Pittsburgh, PA to Youngstown, OH) gorgeous lifestyle photoshoots, then turning the images over to the shelter to help in the re-homing process. I'm proud to say that 52 dogs have been helped to find their 'forever homes' through the project. In the fall of 2015 Rust Belt Lifestyle launched. Through the magazine I'm able to help local businesses, makers and artist showcase their skill and talent to an expanded audience. It's a thrill to get to know these artisans and I'm in awe of the passion and work they are bringing to our region.
I find beauty and romance not just in special moments but in everyday life. And I have honed my craft to capture that in a style that utilizes natural light and clean composition. Photography for me is not a job...it's a passion and a way of life.
It would be an honor to co-create & curate a beautiful set of images that document your story. Let's meet soon.
