About Tammy Parney

I have been shooting film since I was little. The first camera I ever received used 110 film. In 2004, I bought my first digital camera and have been pursing photography ever since. I studied Theatre and Psychology at Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan and travel frequently between Michigan and Indianapolis, Indiana. I love shooting film for personal pictures. I am also a knitter, a dancer, and I love to laugh. I collect vintage cameras. My favorite vintage camera is my Yashica FX-2 and it does still work.

My Style & Philosophy

I am a storyteller. I love sharing stories. Stories that radiate from you. I like to spend some time getting to know you and your story so that I can reflect that in your photos. I take a documentary approach to portraiture. I believe that all people are beautiful. I like to create artwork versus snapshots. Snapshots are something that anyone with a digital camera can take. Artwork is something that you will cherish for a lifetime. Every print, flash drive, and album that you purchase from me comes with a lifetime guarantee. I believe in my artwork and I know that you will cherish it.

Portrait sessions should be fun and simple. Everyone should be able to feel beautiful and have quality portraits. In family sessions, I prefer to see what you come up with first and then direct as necessary. I believe this brings life into the portrait. It’s not just a family walking in the park; it’s your family and there’s something there that makes it special and unique

I’d love to meet you and hear your ideas for your photo shoot! Please call or email me for more information. I’d love to sit down and have tea with you in a local coffee shop or over Skype.  If you’re a fellow photographer, I’d love to chat with you about photography!
