Hi! I'm Tina Iliff, a professional photographer based in historic Marshall, Texas. 

I'm so glad you've stopped by to check things out and I'm so sorry there isn't more to see here. 

Right now I'm re-evaluating some of the structure of my little company here. You see, somewhere along the line I lost the joy and the purpose of doing what I get to do with my camera and it all became about "the business" and I NEVER set out for this to be that way. So, I'm taking a step back to make sure I'm doing this the way that honors God, my family,  and in the way that not only brings joy to my life but also to you and your family.

So, when the new year rolls around I'm planning to have a much easier to understand menu!

In the meantime, if you need information just send me a message to bytinalynn@gmail.com or click the little Facebook symbol and send me a message there.

I can't tell you how much you all mean to me and how thankful I am to have been able to capture your memories this year!

XOXO! 

Welcome!

FAQ

Where do you shoot your sessions?

I offer in-studio and on location sessions. All of my newborn sessions are shot in my studio in Marshall, Texas. On location shoots may take place at my client's home, a previously scouted location or at the client's 

work place (for branding clients).

Why don't you offer digital packages?

All of my Branding packages are digital only and I also offer several different mini packages that are also digital only. I believe that one of the greatest and worst things that has happened to photography has been the digital age. While it has allowed us to have faster access to our images it has also stopped us from printing them as much. I love albums and I love seeing the images I take of my family on the walls of our home. Both of these things weighed heavy on my choice of products to offer my clients.

I believe that pictures should be printed and displayed for us to see daily.

I always recommend that my clients print their images through my trusted printer to ensure quality.

Why are your prices so much higher than others I've talked to?

I really can't answer for anyone else other than myself.  I have spent several years perfecting my craft and I am not done learning yet! I learn something new every single day. Each session is planned, each pose is designed to bring out the very best in my subject, and every portrait I take is personally hand retouched by me.  I spend time on each and every image I present to you making sure that it is the very best product I can create. My mission is to produce lasting treasures for your family and I offer top of the line products from some of the best printers in the county.   

When should I take my maternity pictures?

The best time to take them is when your tummy has popped and you're feeling the most energetic. That is usually around 7-8 months.

When should I schedule our newborn session?

I soft book newborn sessions based on your due date for anytime between 4-14 days old.  This ensures that your baby is still in the super sleepy stages so that we are able to get as many poses in as possible. I will go up to 28 days if needed.  Preemies are always an exception to this and their sessions are based on when they are released from NICU.

For Dance Sessions, do you only do them in studio?

I prefer too but I also offer class packages (please email for more information) that can be done at the dance studio. When I shoot in my studio I have full control over climate and lighting. 

Can my whole family be in any of the mini sessions?

No, those are for baby or mommy only. If you would like to have a family session please book a full session.
