CAPTURING MOMENTS & DELIVERING MEMORIES

Moments, time, life- these things all pass by so very quickly. My passion is to capture your special moments. The real stuff, the genuine laughter, emotion, love and joy. When you look at your photographs I want it to take you right back to that exact moment. While doing this I want to be your friend and provide you an unforgettable experience. No matter what your story is, or who you are. You are important, and so is your story.  It deserves to be told.

AT THIS POINT, TYRA HAS TAKEN MY ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS, WEDDING PHOTOS, MANY FAMILY PHOTOS, AND NOW OUR ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY PHOTOS. I WILL CONTINUE TO RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR AN EXCELLENT PHOTOGRAPHER. OUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT TYRA IS HOW COMFORTABLE SHE WILL MAKE YOU FEEL! TAKING PHOTOS IS NOT MY AND MY HUSBAND’S FAVORITE THING AND SHE MAKES IT SO FUN AND THE PHOTOS ALWAYS TURN OUT AMAZING! WE LOVE HER!

TYRA DID A WONDERFUL JOB CAPTURING OUR WEDDING DAY. OUR PHOTOS WERE ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! WHEN I LOOK AT THEM I THINK “YES THIS IS JUST ALEX & ME!” MY FAVORITES WERE THE CANDID ONES OF US LAUGHING! TYRA IS EXCELLENT AT WORKING WITH LARGE CROWDS AND CHILDREN MOVING THROUGH THE PROCESS SEAMLESSLY. SHE’S A PROFESSIONAL, KNOWS THE INS AND OUTS OF WEDDINGS, SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ENJOY YOUR SPECIAL DAY!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE OUR FAMILY PHOTOS! TYRA HAS OUTSTANDING TALENTS & VISION FOR CAPTURING THE REAL MOMENTS THAT WE AS MOMS AND DADS HOPE TO REMEMBER FOREVER IN OUR LITTLE ONES. OUR SESSION WAS WELL THOUGHT OUT AND SUPER TIMELY. I AM FAIRLY CERTAIN IT TOOK ME LONGER TO GET OUR FAMILY OF 6 READY AND OUT THE DOOR THAN IT TOOK HER TO TAKE AND ENTIRE ALBUM OF AMZING FAMILY PHOTOS. “TYRA IS TERRIFIC!”
