Clarity Photography bio picture

Hey there!

My name is Tammy and I'm a Tyler, Texas based photographer, busy Mom of two boys, and wife to a great (and handsome!) guy.  Life is busy, fast paced and chaotic, and I love every minute of it!

On the professional front, I mostly photograph babies, children, and families.  I shoot on location using natural light or at my studio space in downtown Tyler.  The studio offers natural light shooting as well as the option of studio lighting.  I strive to produce timeless images with a modern edge, classic yet unexpected. 

I absolutely love what I do and pride myself on being able to 100% relate to my clients.  More than anything, I'm a Mom.  I know what it feels like to be 8 months pregnant, or hold your newborn baby in all their snuggly newness.  I know how funny (and not funny!) a two year old can be, or how at times, you can be with your family and realize there is no other place on earth you'd rather be. These are the moments I know are fleeting, sometimes funny, and above all, precious.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like what you see  :)

Precious Noble…such a gorgeous baby, though he wasn’t a very sleepy baby  :)  He did take a few cat naps, but the rest of the time, he was so alert, and made the most amazing eye contact with us!  I just love him, and can’t wait to watch him to grow up…

zoey | tyler texas newborn photographer

Zoey is such a special baby, her parents waited for her for quite some time.  She was born right before Christmas, and we had so much fun with her in the studio.  She never made a peep, and we just played and played  <3

lisa | tyler texas maternity and newborn photographer

Lovely Lisa… such a gorgeous Mommy to be (and this was her 4th pregnancy!), I mean, really?!   Sometimes life just isn’t fair  :)  Best of all though, she is super sweet and I am happy to call her a friend after spending time with her during her maternity and her precious baby boy’s newborn session.  That blog post coming soon, baby Noble is crazy cute!  For now, some of my favorites from Lisa’s maternity session…

Such a gorgeous little girl…baby Harper was so tiny and delicate.   She was born just a few weeks before Christmas, I don’t think her parents could ask for a more perfect gift, do you?  2013-12-18_00052013-12-18_00182013-12-18_00012013-12-18_00132013-12-18_00082013-12-18_00202013-12-18_00162013-12-18_00062013-12-18_00022013-12-18_00042013-12-18_00092013-12-18_00192013-12-18_00212013-12-18_00072013-12-18_0015Dad played college football and is a coach now, so we had to incorporate a football.  I love how tiny Harper looks next to it!

stella | tyler and longview newborn photographer

Beautiful baby Stella…we loved having her visit us in the studio, she was so sweet and such a cuddler.  She even shared some big smiles with us, she loved being a Clarity baby!


Stella’s Daddy is a songwriter, so we incorporated some of his sheet music in to the session…turned out so sweetly…

2013-12-09_0004We have shot MANY newborns in November and December, more sneak peeks to come as soon as the holiday rush slows down!

holiday mini sessions | tyler texas baby and child photographer

We had SO much fun with our studio mini sessions this holiday season, not sure we can top it!  The babies and kids were all so precious, and we had such a good time coming up with fun props.  Many, many thanks to all of the parents for sharing your little ones with us.  We loved every minute and can’t wait until next year!

k family | tyler texas family photographer

This is a such a darling family, their little one is always full of smiles.  He has the cutest dimple and I love making him laugh, just to see it make an appearance  :)   We were blessed with perfect weather the day of our session, and I adore what we ended up with from the session.
