Kind words.....

"We are so impressed with the love and care Tanya gave us photographing our new family. The photos we received are stunning, they are exactly what I was hoping for with the use of natural light creating and capturing 'real' experiences rather than staged shots. For a couple who have never been involved in a photo shoot, I was delighted with the end product, with the only dilemma being: choosing our favourites to show case! .   Thankyou for capturing our little Louie so beautifully. I highly recommend Tanya and Gray Dot Photography to any new parents - you won't be disappointed!"

"We decided to have a professional photographer capture some special moments of us and our 6 week old daughter. A friend recommended Tanya and we are so pleased she did. Not only did she take amazing shots, but she made us feel at ease during the session (not exactly easy with a new baby!).  She has a beautiful style and this comes across in the gorgeous photos she produces. We would happily use Tanya again and again."

"We are so grateful to have Tanya come by our home and document the special moments in our little boy's first few weeks of life. We love how she managed to capture him in his natural state with lots of candid moments that we can now look back on and remember. Tanya is friendly and professional and her photographs are just beautiful!"

When the opportunity to do a professional photography session came up we weren’t sure what to expect, but are now wondering why we never did it earlier. Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed our morning with Tanya - it was so much fun and more like hanging out with an old friend than awkwardly posing for photos! Tanya made us all feel completely at ease and despite the chaos of four kids, she captured some amazing photos that tell our family’s story. We love all the photos so much that it will be hard to choose only a few to display. Thanks Gray Dot Photography for the feelings, memories and moments you have captured for our family.

Every time I look at the collection of photographs Tanya took for us I smile fondly as my mind is transported back to a beautiful sunny winter’s morning at home with our brand new baby. Tanya has captured the mood so perfectly for us – the sunlight peeking in through the windows, our faces – tired, but so full of wonder, joy and love – drinking in every precious moment, and our baby – his little face with all its squishy expressions, his feet, those little legs…

Tanya was a breath of fresh air and a delight to work with. We felt so at ease with her that it was as if an old friend had come over for the morning… and she just happened to be taking some amazing photos. Best of all was the fact that Tanya’s approach was to photograph us just the way we were, so it didn’t matter that the house was in a mild state of disarray. 

The photographs themselves are stunning, unique and really “us”. In just a couple of hours Tanya really managed to capture the essence of our little family and we will cherish the images for ever. We’ve received so many compliments on the photos from friends and family and we can’t wait to get a few of them printed off to display at home and remind us of that precious newborn period. Thank you, Tanya!
