We had such an awesome experience with TinTin at Light & Grace Photography! Found her place via a quick Google search of photo studios nearby 🙂 TinTin responded right away to my inquiry and was able to get us in on the day/time requested! We had such a fun time in her home studio and I’m so glad I found her!!! She captured amazing group photos of my 3 kids and 4 nephews, and even took solo shots, and some sibling and cousin shots in-between their outfit change. She was so kind, patient, and fun with all of the kids, who were in the range of 6 to 12 yrs old! She has so many props, and decor, and stuffies, and anything else you’d need for great photos. We forgot snacks to keep the kids happy throughout but she had us all taken cared of! She’s so creative and talented with her work and even goes above and beyond what you ask for. She kept me updated and informed on everything before and after the session, via text and e-mail. I am so happy with all of the images I received in my order (which came super quick btw) and all of the unexpected added bonuses that came along with it! I love Light & Grace Photography and I would definitely come back to have TinTin do more of our family photos. I’d easily recommend her to anyone looking for a studio to have photos taken!!!

Our family session with Light & Grace Photography went so well! We did milestone portraits to celebrate my older son's 2nd birthday and younger son’s 100 days; we also did a couple of family pictures together as a family. Tintin was great at bringing out the smiles with her tricks and treated us with lots of patience and kindness. We loved how the pictures turned out! Highly recommend Light & Grace Photography for family and milestone portraits!

We love our daughter's 2nd birthday pictures! Highly recommend Light & Grace Photography for any birthday and milestone portraits. The photographer was patient and gentle with our daughter who was shy and fussy and the end result turned out much better than what i had expected!!

Tintin did such an amazing job of capturing my son’s 1st birthday photos. She was patient and so great with my busy baby! Before our photo shoot she was very communicative about every detail to ensure she could capture exactly what I had in mind. Her studio was very well stocked with props and even outfit options.Tintin is extremely personable and talented, I’m so happy we chose her for my son’s birthday photos. I will definitely be using her for our future photo needs! I highly recommend her as your next family photographer!

My family’s photo session with Tintin was excellent. We began with newborn photos of our youngest. She was excellent at posing him and very patient. Next we moved in to the family session, which proved more challenging with my toddler in the mix. We finished up with shots of both kids, which was the most fraught of all - anyone with a toddler knows that you have max of 45 min of their focus. Tintin was able to make our eldest in full meltdown look downright compliant and cute.She gave great direction, had so many cute and nice props and outfits for the newborn, and got everything done much faster than I expected. Afterwards, she provided the proofs in a very timely manner.Overall I highly recommend her for newborn and family sessions, especially with a toddler to wrangle. 🤣


Imagine. Surrounding yourself with beautiful custom portraits of your new baby. Precious memories artfully framed and displayed as gallery-grade prints and canvases — your walls, bookshelves, and nursery filled with images.
