  • Hey good looking!

    Welcome! I’m so glad you are here. My name is Tania (pronounced like you would Tanya/Tonya) and I believe choosing a photographer is more then just looking at images- it’s establishing a long lasting relationship with someone you enjoy being around who can capture key moments in your lives. Since I see us becoming great, life long bosom friends- here’s a little info about me.

    I have had the opportunity to live all around the world. I was born down south, then moved to the East coast, then to Europe, then finally down to Texas. (I wasn’t born here, but I got here as fast as I could!) Since then I have shown to be a hybrid of cultures from the places I have lived- I like to walk and drive fast and talk and eat slow. I love cityscapes and sunsets, hammocks and limos, giant soirees and intimate gatherings. I make it a habit to have a blast wherever I go and whoever I’m with and my friends have dubbed me as the “most friendliest person ever”. (Aren’t they great?)

    I am a proud graduate of the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!), where I ended up due to an Acting scholarship. After realizing my dream of taking Broadway by storm had fizzled out a little bit, I switched over to Public Relations and Journalism and wrote for 2 separate publications throughout college. While photography is my favorite art, writing is a close second. I love creating a rhythm and pace with words and painting a picture. So since a picture is worth a thousand words…you might get a thousand words to go with it.:)

    I have been obsessed with cameras as long as I can remember and was affectionately nicknamed “Paparazzi” throughout high school and in college. (Hey someone’s got to capture those infamous moments!). I moved into a professional capacity as a photographer in 2009, thus Tania June was born. Tania June is all about romantic, beautiful images with sunshine, love and laughter- some of my favorite things! My literary hero in life is Anne of Green Gables, and just like her I am a redhead with an overactive imagination, so when appropriate I like to bring creative elements and props in to the shoot.

    I’m married to my best friend Scott and we are fur-parents to our 2 mini Australian Shepherds, Boomer and Bella. I’m a follower of Jesus Christ and have been incredibly blessed with a ton in my life. We love having dinner parties, wine and cheese nights and playing board games. Scott and I make a great team and work together to make sure our clients are relaxed, comfortable and happy during their session or wedding. We have become close with most of our past clients and you will probably see them at a wine and cheese night at our house! We’d love to have you as a client/friend too so feel free to give me a call anytime. I’d love to hear all about you!

Denton Good Samaritan Society Family Photos

Wow, what a crazy few months it has been! I have been enjoying summer break with my husband by escaping for a getaway to the southeast, coming home to Dallas, falling in love with a house, buying a house, then completely demolishing the inside of the house….but more on all that later.  For now, here’s a horribly late post about the sweetest family.  Our very good friends Suzanne and Sean (Sean is our realtor for the previously mentioned house if anyone is looking in the area!) hired us to take some family photos at the Denton Good Samaritan Village for her grandparents’ 70th wedding anniversary.

 

We were so excited about this, not just because Scott and I love Suzanne and Sean dearly, but because we love LOVE! And what better form of love is out there then a couple staying together and loving each other through life’s ups and downs over seven decades??? Wow.  On top of that her entire family is completely wonderful and has a great sense of humor. What more could we ask for?

 

So- Suzanne and Sean- thanks again for thinking of us and for being such wonderful friends. We love you guys!

Crystal & Randy’s Richardson Maternity Session

So, just like my last post- I have really gorgeous friends who make amazing babies.  Here’s another pair – Randy & Crystal.  These guys are some of my favorite things (people!) that Scott brought to our marriage.  Before I was even in the picture, Scott was a third wheel to this sweet couple.  I love hearing the pre-Tania stories of Scott and how horrible life was without me! Kidding, kidding.

We were beyond thrilled when our friends told us they were expecting – and we all knew all along it would be a boy- and we were right! The day we had planned to do the photos it started to rain.

And rain. And RAIN.  Texas sized thunderstorm, y’all! Those are AWESOME when you can be tucked inside by a window with a book but not so much when you are wanting to shoot a lovely scene in a field.  With baby Daniel born any day and no time to lose, we decided to do a themed shoot in our kitchen – sort of a “look what we cooked up!”.  Since both Randy and Crystal are super talented in the kitchen we thought it’d fit them perfect and we were right.

Randy was Scott’s best man at our wedding and Crystal read the most amazing Persian poem for us at our wedding. We’ve bonded over super late talks involving theology, Lost, Anne of Green Gables, and parenthood.  I don’t think I know anyone else that will stay up until 4am with me laughing and sharing stories! Or cook me the most amazing Mexican meals!

Scott did the majority of the shooting on this one. It was fun (and weird) to play more of the assistant role- but I enjoyed watching him work.  He’s got skills for sure!

Congratulations Randy and Crystal! We love you both dearly!:)
