|My passion is photography...from the time I was a little girl, I have been fascinated with photography. I remember my parents giving me on “old fashioned” camera with the “ice cube” changeable flash to take to my first kindergarten fieldtrip to the zoo…the rest is history. I love photography in general, but my true fascination is being able to capture a moment in time, who the subject is right now and will never be again…an expression, a smile, a look of curiosity, a fleeting glance…the faces and images we want to remember forever and the priceless gift of memories to cherish.
I encourage a natural atmosphere when photographing along with a documentary and journalistic style. I am inspired to give to you what might not otherwise be seen. I understand that it may take some time to capture that special image and a rushed "cookie cutter" style is not the way to document an important time in anyone’s life whether it be a maternity session, families, newborns or children. Time must be taken to get to know each individual and I pride myself in offering you the very best service and products for you to proudly display.
I have had the honor of my work winning several ribbons, as well as being published for my journalistic style. I have also won the International Library of Photography’s prestigious Editor's Choice Award because of my artistic accomplishments and unique perspective and several Editor's Choice Awards from Better Photo.
Inspired by my own children, that little girl who was fascinated with photography is now fascinated with capturing the essence of families, relationships and childhood itself.
I look forward to working with you and your family in capturing your moment in time. To read more about the Tiffany Johnson Experience and why booking me is the right choice for you, continue reading below.
|The Tiffany Johnson Experience
|Just why would you want to pay that little extra and invest in Photo Artwork? What is it that makes Tiffany Johnson Photography the right choice for you?
The world's greatest photographers are renowned for more than just taking photos, their greatest and most memorable photos are recognized as works of art!
Fact: Beautiful works of art never come straight out of the camera.
The most amazing photos are rarely ever photos straight out of a camera. You probably understand that a photographer may take hundreds of shots to get that 'one amazing photo'. What you may not realize is that to create that WOW factor, a photographer will spend hours touching up the photo to transform it into a beautiful 'Work of Art'.
When you view the photos at Tiffany Johnson Photography please keep in mind that many images have had that special touch of artistic work applied. This is what transforms them from 'nice photos' into the Beautiful Works of Art that you see.
Fact: Works of Art do not come from your local photo store!
The most discerning clients are never happy with quick snapshots straight out of the camera. For that you can go to the mall or local photo store, where, if you are lucky they might quickly apply a cheap special effect, such as blurring around the edges, or even worse a cheap cartoon border! No, the most discerning clients want something special you simply can't get from the local store.
Ask yourself, do you want your photographer to be just an employee with a camera, or to be a professional artistic photographer? True, the person from QuikiPhotos may have taken thousands of pictures, but does any of their work qualify as art? Probably not.
To get quality Works of Art that impress and evoke a feeling, you need more than a person that can point-and-shoot, you need a skilled photographer who has made this their craft and their passion! Not 'employee of the month', but an artist that will create a memorable session that is uniquely tailored to your needs.
Is Privacy and Feeling Comfortable Important to You?
So many of my clients appreciate my private studio in a warm home environment where the pace of your session is one that makes you feel comfortable and welcomed. And when you need privacy to change or to nurse a baby, I provide you total privacy alone.
One new mother commented how she tried going to the local photo store, but just hated the feeling of changing there. "Even with the privacy screen I just felt exposed and a little embarassed. It certainly wasn't a pleasant experience as a new mother. Even the thought of the germs since it was such a public setting had me worried with my brand new baby!"
After that experience she tried my services and just loved how different it was in a private studio that had a warm, clean, homely feeling, and without the feeling the staff were waiting for you to quickly change or feed the baby.
Many clients comment how much they love their session in my private studio, where they could sit, relax and enjoy the experience.
Fact: "Tiffany Johnson Photography doesn't just give you photos, you get images that create emotion."

Canon 5D Mark II Industry Quality Equipment
I use state of the art hollywood quality equipment, yet provide you affordable family pricing. My camera has been used in many Hollywood productions including: The opening title sequence for the 35th season of NBC's Saturday Night Live; The House episode "Help Me", broadcast by Fox, which was shot entirely on my Canon 5D Mark II, replacing the drama's usual 35mm film format. Portions of the seventh season were also recorded with a 5D Mark II.
The BBC Two comedy series Shelfstackers, is the first BBC programme to use the camera. All six episodes of the series were shot on the camera. The Road to Coronation Street, broadcast by BBC Four, is the first UK television drama to be shot on the Canon 5D Mark II. The drama's director of photography was impressed and used the camera on the seventh series of the BBC One drama Hustle. Behzat Ç. Bir Ankara Polisiyesi, a Turkish TV series is being shot on Canon 5DmkII. Rubber, a French horror movie directed by Quentin Dupieux, was entirely shot on Canon 5DMkII.
