I am Tanaya, a lifestyle photographer based in Sacramento, California. I love catching moments as they flash past my eyes, and I've been a shutterbug ever since I first put my hands on a camera as a kid. Several years later, while preparing for a dentistry program, I realized that my heart was elsewhere. Though it took me a while to start photographing professionally, I'm glad that I finally took the plunge. 


Photography nurtures my creative soul, and to capture your love and soulful moments gives me immense joy! My photography style includes documenting the genuine, fun and natural moments between you and your loved ones. I want to photograph you for who you are and tell your story for generations to come. I cherish creating dreamy and everlasting visual narratives for families, couples and weddings, so help me capture yours!  

An introvert at heart, I am a dreamer and nature lover. When I am not behind the camera, I am either spending time with my husband, Preet, snuggling with my cat Leo, reading a good book, listening to my favorite playlist, taking up a new gardening project or hanging out with my friends and family. 

Thanks so much for visiting, I can't wait to hear from you!
