If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve probably noticed gaps in our posts. Well, sometime in December of 2016, I felt it was time to reevaluate TMP. I was nine months pregnant at this time and spent the final days of pregnancy as well as the first few months after our daughter was born examining the TMP brand for areas I could improve. Now, the examining, studying, and planning is done and it’s time to initiate a revamp!
3 years ago, I decided to embark on the journey of building a photography business because I wanted to give mamas the gift of having nice pictures of their little ones and the bellies that those little ones were carried in. As time went on, I added services while deciding to specialize in Maternity and Newborn portraits, but always felt something was missing. Sure TMP has been growing and doing pretty well, but with each client, I would find two or three things I wished I would have done differently. Recently, I’ve realized I’ve lost focus of what was most important to me in my business: the women I was creating these portraits for.
The purpose behind this revamp is to bring the focus back to these women, their babies, the partners who love and support them, the new chapters of their lives, and any other reason that is significant enough for them to decide to document through photography.
I’m transitioning TMP into a full-service Wedding and Portrait studio, meaning from start to finish every detail of our clients’ experience with us will be tailored to them and the artwork they want as keepsakes for their homes. I’ll be updating my portfolio, adding services and products, and simplifying pricing.
Keepsakes clients may want could be wall art hung as large individual pieces or group of portraits hung to create an in-home portrait gallery. Or perhaps you would rather keep your walls as they are and would prefer to have a gorgeous folio box to hold many portraits or have a handcrafted album designed with your portraits. I want our clients to have many options for custom products, and I want our clients to know that the possibilities are endless.
With all these changes taking place, they key focus overall is to provide a simple structure that makes our clients’ experience enjoyable and unforgettable. Great communication, excellent service, and quality products are a part of the improved structure, with client satisfaction being our top priority.
While everything is under construction the TMP website and social media platforms will be changing, and some technical difficulties are sure to arise. These platforms will be quiet for awhile, and I will slowly resume posting in about a month or so. My responses will be slower, session availability will be limited (we are open during construction), and other complications I can’t even begin to fathom may occur, but I will do my best to address issues that come up as swiftly as possible. I apologize in advance for any inconveniences.
The whole motivation behind this revamp is the satisfaction of you, the client (and also our fans!). So I want to hear from you, tell me what you’ve like most about TMP until this point, tell me what you would like to see done differently, let me know what you’re most excited about the revamp and any suggestions you may have.

Thank you to everyone that has shown their love and support to TMP over the last few years. I’m forever grateful for the feedback you’ve all given, the good, bad, and the ugly. Even more so, thank you for allowing me to be me and pushing me to be better. The experiences I’ve had on this journey have been priceless in my growth spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Words could never express the gratitude I feel and I hope to be even better with TMP 2.0.
Stay tuned for more updates, I’m excited for what’s to come, and I hope you are too!
