Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still. – Dorothea Lange
Hi there! My name is Tanisha and I’m an artist. Always have been. I love creating and encouraging other creatives to pursue their dreams.
Some of my earliest memories are of watching my grandfather read and my grandmother paint. My grandfather was an educator and he passed his love for books and learning on to me. I think I get my artistic side from my grandmother.
I wrote my first story in the 3rd grade and my first poem not long after and I haven’t stopped writing since. I perform spoken word for various churches and organizations and, occasionally, you can catch me at an open mic night.
My love for music also started at a very early age listening to my mother and her friends play music like Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, and The Gap Band. One of the few memories I have of my father is of riding in his Cadillac listening to jazz. I try to incorporate sound and my love for lyric and rhythm into my poetry.
Finally, my love for photography is my own. I didn’t inherit this love from my family members. I think there is a lot of truth to the old cliché that a picture is worth a thousand words and I’m in love with seeing what can be communicated through photography. I especially love black and white street photography and portraits.
I can’t wait to help you tell your story! To schedule a session, contact me! I’d love to work with you to capture beautiful memories!
