Photographer for the

upstate New York

Adventurous & Romantic

The last thing you want is to feel awkward in a session. That typically happens when its a stranger on the other end of the camera. To be sure you are given a comfortable and fun experience, I let you get to know me just as I get to know you. 

I don't just take pretty pictures, I'm also going to create an experience you wont forget!

Welcome, lovely! I'm so excited you stopped by!

I love working with you to not only capture your memories, but to make sure the entire process is as fun and stress-free as possible.

let's chat

Memories are fleeting. My goal for every session is to grasp each one and deliver them to you through a sophisticated and guided process. All you have to do is enjoy yourself!
You live out real memories everyday. You deserve a photographer that you can trust to deliver everything you wish for and more.

My philosophy...

let's do this!

"I honestly cannot say enough about Tinara! She caught the most breathtaking photos of us. Just capturing the way my son looks at me, the way I smile, his silly laugh. She was amazing in every possible way!"

- Marissa

"Our photos were beautiful!"


"I'm Obsessed! She did an amazing job."

- Tayler & Alex

Kendra, Courtney, Jennifer & Kara

"She has an awesome personality and made us all feel super comfortable. She helped direct us when we weren't sure what to do and had some really fun ideas!."

"Tinara was absolutely lovely to have as a photographer! Myself and My gals were so appreciative that she came all the way to us in Cortland!"


" She let's kids open up and do their own thing. It makes the photos so much better! She's flexible and super reasonable. Given how awesome the photos are!"

"Photos are amazing and timeless!"
