Tammy is a creative soul. [Don’t think hippie; think DIY Queen who does singing telegrams.] It doesn’t seem to matter what the situation [sunsets, scrap metal, sticky hands, an old gurney] Tammy sees the beauty and potential in it [or can create it with some spray paint]. While she’s had many creative roles in her professional career [Event planning, stage acting, Camp Snoopy Entertainment Director, are you kidding? How fun is that?!], she now finds her niche in photography [and we are all so glad she did!!!]. She gets to meet new people [but you’ll feel like you’ve known her for years], find fabulous locations [including her magical 28 acre Pella farmstead] , treasure hunt for great props [Like a whitewashed chicken coupe wall], and ultimately deliver to you a precious moment in time - artfully presented and preserved for years to come. She considers it a privilege to peek into your life through her lens and capture the beauty, the sparkle, the magic that is your life. She is most passionate about giving you a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable, experience in the process. [Just like her, one-of-a-kind and unforgettable.]
Apart from photography, Tammy also excels in web design and print design - a natural connection for someone who has such an eye for visual art. [A bonus when creating your storyboards and Christmas cards!] She also spends time in front of the camera as a local actress and voiceover artist. This is all, of course, on top of her most important roles as wife to drummer Bob and mom to two great boys; Carter and Conley. Tammy creates out of [and in] her home studio in Pella, IA as well as her studio in downtown Des Moines.
Tammy is excited to provide you with outstanding photos for your family, newborn, children, senior, engagement and event needs. She also specializes in actor and professional head shots, and commercial/business photography.
