Top Ocala Florida Glamour Photographer | Girls Day Out

As a portrait photographer I have seen how special relationships between moms and daughters are so I offer a Girls Day Out to celebrate them! It had been too long for this mom and her two beautiful girls. We had so much fun creating these images and what a fun day for the girls.

Girls Day Out with Tammy Portrait Artist | Ocala Photographer

Girls Day Out

Mini Glamour Sessions with mom

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and this year I wanted to do something unique. I’ve been playing with glamour photography and having a blast with my friends at Hello Gorgeous making my clients glamorous and gorgeous with personalized hair and makeup. Of course you can get facials, mani and pedis there too so you can feel as great as you will look! The Limited Edition event is called:

Momma Mia!-Logo-grey

So realizing how intimidating this is, I called up my friend Amanda from BeBeautybyAmanda, for a test with my mom. It has been over 10 years since we have had any portraits done of us so it was time. She was gracious enough to take a million images until I got what I wanted. Thanks Amanda!

We first had our hair done at Hello Gorgeous by Justin then Amanda met us back at my studio for the final makeup touches. Here are the results and would love your feed back.

Oh, then Danny, my husband, took us out to dinner because we looked so gorgeous he just had to show us off! And if you are interested in celebrating your relationship with your Mom just call me at 352.622.7255. Click this link for more info too. Mama Mia

Family Legacy’s | Tammy Portrait Artist

 

Story Telling with Family Portraiture

One of my favorite things to create are these story telling Expression Panels. When I get the chance to photograph a family in several situations, it gives me the opportunity to tell their story for their family legacy.

ditty_panelThis family has a beautiful farm, raise horses, cows, grows hay and mom competes with the horse you see in this image. Lots of great memories for them.

This family wanted an image that showed their love for each other as well as the fun they have together. This wall panel hangs over their piano in the center of their home. They will see it everyday as they pass by it.

Don’t let time go by without capturing your family every 3-5 years in a professional portrait created just for you. You phones just won’t give you art like this. Leave a Legacy for your kids. You will never regret the investment in your family!

Heartfelt Giving at Christmas time | Tammy Portrait Artist

Santa Paws 2015 Event

2015_santa_paws_post

My Annual Santa Paws Event was filled with fun and frolic at the Marketplace on Broadway. Santa Joe was a hit as always! I wanted to share a few of the fun products we made for our loyal clients! I just love the Santa art with the little boy. What a thill for him to meet Santa and be able to spend time without a hundred other kids clamoring to see him! And now this piece of art will come out each Christmas to remind him of this cool memory!

The night was perfect as we raised $150 for VOCAL- Voices of Change Animal League. They are a dedicated group who are building a low fee spay and neuter clinic to help lower the stray animal problem in Ocala.

Glamour Photography | Tammy Portrait Artist | Ocala, FL.

A Life’s Work Coming Full Circle

Through the almost 25 years I have photographed maternity, newborns, children, family as well as executives, one thing for sure is that most people feel uncomfortable in front of a camera. Children are natural and unaware to be that way but as we get older and start being critical of our selves panic sets in when that big lens gets in front of our faces! Then we teach our kids to say ‘cheese’ and get that fake toothy look that plagues us through adulthood.

Fake It Till You Make It!

As we get older it gets worse. Our fears can take hold and demolish our self esteem. I was a very shy child growing up and I too had that low self esteem that kept me behind the scenes when I wanted to be able to sing and dance on stage, act and be noticed like my gregarious friends. But alas, I instead took a career behind a camera where I could hide and only dream of being confident. That camera is my crutch and I notice through that lens that I’m not the only one who needs a crutch. But I faked it till I made it!

So, I have found it my mission to help pre-teens through high school to adult hood to really feel good inside their skin. Give them the confidence to stand tall and feel beautiful or handsome. This follows us all our lives and can make or break our success in life. Even during my family sessions the women especially had a tuff time getting comfortable in front of the camera. I felt their pain! Then I did what most photographers let alone most people wouldn’t dare do, I created a project where I had my subjects photograph me. You might remember, my ‘Stepping Our Of The Way’ project.

This was epic. I said to myself, ‘I would just let go, be myself and let it all hang out’. It was a fun project all around. I since have become much more comfortable in my own skin and funny faces! Then…

Something Beautiful Happened!

I wanted to photograph more women and something beautiful happened. Women were relaxing, and letting their inner beauty shine. Some would cry when they saw themselves for the first time. Their spouses were speechless. I realized that because of my own inner growth I held the confidence that helped these women let go and be real. I am seeing this inner transformation at every session as high school seniors’ whole attitude about themselves change. Their parents also see the change and so I bring to their moms an opportunity to do the same. From 15 to 80, It’s a new mission of mine

‘To bring out the Alluring in women of all ages, so they can see how beautiful they really are and experience themselves through my lens.’

Partnering With Hello Gorgeous

I had to some how get the word out about what I am doing for women of all ages so the most obvious was getting my hair salon to help spread the word. I have photographed each beautiful stylist at Hello Gorgeous and I am posting one each day for a week. Until they have all been ‘unveiled’! They have all experienced my Alluring Exposures session and the results were fabulous! The first one of course is Becky McQuade, the owner, good friend and client. These are my favorites of Becky:

The girls and I had a GREAT time getting together for our photo shoot with Tammy! She totally makes you feel at ease in front of the camera! If you’re looking for something fun to do with your girlfriends or other half call her! Your portraits can always be seen not looked up on your phone! ~ Becky
