Born at 28 weeks weighing 1056 grams
Good day, My name is Tammy,
Many moons ago I started my career off as a
Private Investigator that sparked my interest and love of photography. Who knew Surveillance was so long and boring?... I couldn't talk to
myself as video was running so I taught myself how to take pretty pictures on my trusty Pentax K1000.
From there, I went onto work in the
Social Service sector while
as a hobby.
After giving birth to my micro-preemie baby
with Congenial Heart Disease
@ 28 weeks, I made a promise.......
As I sat with my tiny daughter in the NICU,
I watched babies sadly pass without any
"normal non medical photos". I decided
one day I would change that
for families and take these much needed photos.
Life threw in a few wrenches along the way
that included being diagnosed with
Lupus & tossing out a few organs I no longer got along with. After many
gear upgrades, formal education
and a lot of practice, my beloved camera once
again became my permanent appendage....
I pride myself in doing what I can to be kind
via my camera lens.
We all come with life experiences...
The skills I have acquired along my journey
have shown me
how to persevere,
fine tune my creative juices
& how best to utilize my empathy
and compassion for others.
I believe life is a
beautiful gift to be treasured & remembered.
It is my honour to help families
with my camera
Ps, the pictures are of my daughter.
I can happily report after a few bumps along her
journey including open heart surgery,
my biggest blessing has soared.
She excelled in high school, moved out
and is currently completing her
Undergrad Dietician Degree.
She makes us so proud.
All grown up with her goddaughter
