Hi there! My name is Tamara Kate + I'm a Toronto - based International award winning maternity, newborn, hospital + family lifestyle photographer, plus one half of what was the super fun pop-up collaboration Whim + Whistle Archival Co. !
My heart-on-sleeve, genuine + candid photography style specializes in unique / modern / photojournalistic / documentary / ' day in the life ' / archival storytelling of your pre-natal, baby, child + family details.
As for my details, I'm available for custom photography commissions both on location, in home + in studio as well as editorial storyboarding + commercial campaign / look book brand imagery. Available for worldwide travel, my home base is Toronto + the greater Mississauga, Oakville, Halton, Peel, Tri-City, Kitchener, Guelph, Waterloo, Milton, Niagara + northern Ontario cottage country regions.
In my 15+ year career in the field of media + arts, I've also been the editor-in-chief of three alt. weeklies, a senior writer + syndicated columnist covering music, entertainment, tech, GenY employment + politics, a publicist for record labels, distributors + independent artists + a boutique brand, marketing + social media strategist.
Above all else, I'm a proud n' blessed mama to a three year old Type 1 Juvenile Diabetic, an unabashed enthusiast of detail + passionate lover of fresh, fun ideas.
This here home on the Interwebs has an online audience of 20k between my professional + personal social media accounts.
