Hello there! I am Tanya Lorraine, a wife, home educator, mother to nine beautiful children, and owner of Tanya Lorraine Photography in Nashville Tennessee. I usually  start my day with coffee and end it with a little wine. I love long drives in the country just for the heck of it, I prefer breakfast dates over dinner dates, I LOVE art ( specifically portraiture in realism) & music ( specifically playing the piano)  and of course spending quality time with my husband and children. Photography is my obsession! I am a lover of fine art imagery and moody and emotive light. I am always seeking to capture the everyday beauty of life with my children as well as the beauty of nature. I am  a Click Pro with Clickin Moms and an instructor at The Unraveled Academy. I was a published photographer with Beauty Revived 2018 and was also published in Bella Grace Magazine.
