backyardINK is sort of a husband and wife team…I say sort of because I haven’t convinced my husband to pick up the camera and shoot, so for now, he’s my lovely assistant… and a great one at that.

As for me (Tina), I’ve loved photography for as long as I can remember. When I was a little kid, one of my favorite things to do was sit and go through old photos of my parents and grandparents (ok, i still do this). I love the story that a photograph can tell. 

I love photographing people. Everyone is different and so complex in their own way that no portrait session is ever the same, and I love that. Children are definitely my favorite kind of people, they are the most comfortable and goofy in front of the camera and can truly be themselves, which is how I prefer all of my clients to be. Themselves.

Thanks for stopping by!
