She was thorough in helping me align the purpose for my headshots and respectful in understanding my trepidation of being in front of the camera!

You’ll definitely get that and more with Tamea." - Robert Flowers, Celebrant/Officiant

She's a gifted artist and highly professional to boot." - Catherine Bremer, Chief Correspondent Reuters France
