ABOUT TINA

Since I was a little girl, I’ve had a great love of photography. I have also always been very nostalgic. Even as a child one of my favorite things to do was look at all our family photo albums.

When I was eight years old my dad gave me a little Kodak camera. I started taking pictures of everything I did and then I would collect all the photos and make albums that documented my life. I now have albums for almost every year of my life since 1977.

Today I still get excited about photographing a special time in someone’s life and then making an album that tells the story.
