Hi! I'm Tanya

I'm a mum of two, originally from South Africa and now living in my adopted city of Edinburgh, Scotland. My home is chaotic, joyful and noisy (ask the neighbours) but it is filled with so much love and the people who make my world turn. 

I love the outdoors, spontaneous adventures and big blue skies! I can pass on cold north wind though! 

Kind Words From My Clients

Steffanie: Maternity Photoshoot

I had such a wonderful experience with Tanya getting my maternity photos taken. I spent some time looking through photographers in Edinburgh and chose Tanya for her dreamy style, but couldn't have imagined how lucky I would be with the end results!

Getting photos taken isn't something I would normally think about but I wanted a keepsake for the future during this unique time, and Tanya went above and beyond to deliver the most beautiful photos that I'll genuinely treasure forever. She immediately made me feel so comfortable, and was warm and kind (and fun!). I had a great time with her, she listened to what I wanted and helped me feel relaxed which in turn made everything easier.

I couldn't recommend Tanya more highly; it was an experience I am so happy I got to have and has provided beautiful pictures that will be hung proudly in my house forever. Can't wait to get her back to photograph more of life's special moments in the future.


Julie: Mini Session

I can’t recommend Tanya highly enough. We had a photo session on a cold Sunday afternoon in the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh with my three children. Tanya is a natural with children. She made sure they were involved in decisions and that they were happy with everything as we went along. She made sure they stayed warm. She was super relaxed and her sense of fun was contagious. We had lots of fun choose props and picking the right spot for the shoot. The results were superb. Tanya managed to get the best out of the kids by making them feel so relaxed. She captured such wonderful and intimate moments between them. I can’t begin to choose a favourite shot as they are all so different and lovely. Tanya will be my go to photographer from here on in!
