Twana is an on-location, natural light lifestyle + portrait photographer specializing in maternity, newborns, babies, children, families high school seniors, and professionals.  I’m always eager about meeting new clients and working with current clients to capture real moments. I believe a smile is always necessary; some of my favorite images are the candid and natural ones.

I make a habit of quick, reasonable turnaround times for my images. As a client, you can expect naturally edited, high-resolution images uploaded to an online gallery for printing and sharing purposes. My package pricing varies dependent on coverage, and number of images. I take delight in being able to offer reasonable pricing for your photography needs.

There are a limited number of sessions I take per month; it’s best to book me at least 1-2 months in advance. It’s a good idea to get in touch early, especially if you’re interested in a newborn session. I work with natural light, in your home or at your favorite outdoor location.

“For me, the subject of the picture is always more important than the picture.”
― Diane Arbus

Photography is an art. If one of my photographs captures your eye and compels you to stare at it a while, I’ve achieved my goal as a photographer. Photographs are moments frozen in time, moments that you get to live again and again just by flipping through a gorgeous custom album, or glancing at a photo collage on your wall. Looking through old photos of your parents or grandparents and seeing what their lives where like when they were your age is so much fun, and how amazing will it be when you get to share your special moments with your kids, grandkids and great-grandkids?

All sessions with Twana are conducted on-location in the New York area, whether you prefer your own home, a local park or nature preserve, your favorite beach or anywhere you love to be.  You’re encouraged to plan “normal” activities for your session, incorporating little things that are special to your family. . . baking cookies, lounging in bed, taking grand bubble baths, visiting a museum or library, or simply having fun in the backyard.  Twana strives to capture you authentically, just as you are… laughing, relaxing.

Your Signature Session will last one to two hours (sometimes longer for newborns) which leaves plenty of time for snacks, diaper changes, even a short break.  Twana will take the time to get to know you and make you feel at ease before the camera starts to click.

For newborns, it is recommended that you schedule your session with Twana before your baby arrives, so that Twana can pencil in your due date.  These time-sensitive sessions should ideally take place within the baby’s first 10 days of life.  During these first few days, your little one will sleep more soundly for a longer period of time, and “curl up” more willingly.  Twana will meet you at home to document the beginning of your amazing journey together.

The most important thing you can do to prepare for the session is to simply relax, be yourself, and come with an open heart.  You’ll love the results.
