First and foremost, I love a good introduction. Country-raised, Jesus-lovin’, sweet-hearted girl—that’s me. I’m a proud rancher’s daughter, born and raised in beautiful Montana. The respect and adoration I have for my family’s dedication to ranching in the rural, rugged landscape of Montana is truly what first sparked my passion for photography. For many years, I’ve watched my grandpa, dad, and brother put in long hours, day in and day out on the ranch and I wanted people to see what I saw—perseverance, values, hard work, patience, dedication, hope, and love. I wanted to help tell their story and way of life, and the best way I knew how was to get behind a lens. It felt important to me to capture the rawness of that way of life. And that’s where my photography blossomed into so much more.
I’ve become obsessed with capturing all of life’s moments. From an easygoing, casual in-home session with the kiddos, to the biggest day of your life when you decide to spend forever with your best friend, I’m here for it all and love nothing more than to produce timeless images, providing moments for you to relive over and over again. I’ve made it my utmost goal to honor each and every one of you through stunning imagery. It brings my soul so much joy to be able to help tell your story and share your journey—whatever that may be.
I am a natural light obsessed photographer, forever down to chase the golden hour with you. I’m all about capturing the candid, natural moments that happen effortlessly and unconstrained—I believe that’s when the magic happens. I’m passionate about photographing the authenticity and rawness of you and your story. I gravitate towards natural movements, intimate details, and the perfectly imperfect. Warm hues and terracotta tones are my love language. If my style speaks to you, then I’m confident I’m your gal!
“Tawnee makes you feel really comfortable right away. I’ve worked with a lot of photographers in the past and her ability to make you feel totally yourself is very unique. Her work is stunning and her passion is conveyed in every one of her images. I’d highly recommend working with Tawnee any day.”
“Tawnee was so much fun and an absolute dream to work with. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Everything about the pictures were stunning, from the location, to the lighting, I am in complete awe of her work.”
“I did a photo shoot with Tawnee earlier this summer and I had such a fun time! I told her the vibe I was looking to achieve and she personally went out and found the cutest places around Bozeman to shoot. I was so impressed by how perfectly the spots fit the image in my head. I felt so comfortable, and not at all awkward shooting with Tawnee. Her fun and energetic personality really makes you feel at home! The photos turned out so so good + I am already planning my next shoot with her!”
