I'm Tonya!

I am a portrait photographer located in Oakland. Whether I'm shooting in a studio, park, beach or your home I like to keep my portrait photography style relaxed and comfortable because what I like to capture is something beyond just a pretty picture. I want images that feel connected and natural. While I do pose subjects in scenic settings (or the studio), I gravitate towards the moments in between poses. I want my subjects to forget about the camera. 

After the session, you are invited to come to the office for an image presentation and product viewing meeting.  We'll review the sample products so you are confident in your order.

pause time with photography.
