Meet the Owner

Hi, I’m Tanya! I’m a mom of a spunky tween girl and a rebellious toddler and in my free time I kinda like to take pictures too. 😉 I’m a pretty down-to-earth gal who likes cooking, garage sales, bingo, and definitely spending time with my friends and family.

Speaking of family, I named my business after my grandpa. He ran Time Capsule Video in Illinois for many years but he also did photography and slideshows. He always had a camera in hand and taught my dad, who let me use his camera when I was learning. Since I don’t shoot video, I changed the name to encompass my photography and design work.

I have years of experience at various portrait studios and have been a contracted photographer at churches and hospitals. I have been shooting for myself since 2001 and officially opened my business in 2010.

With my studio, I take pride in the fact that I have an education in photography, communications, & design and I also attend classes and conventions for more learning of my craft every year.
