XO Tanya Santos

Meet your photographer

Hey there! I'm tanya

I am a passionate person and it shows in all aspects of my life. I am happily married, have 2 kiddos (18 & 15) and am a crazy animal lover. When I’m not tending to my home front, I spend time with my Mom and sisters, who are my best friends in the entire world. I am an auntie to a gorgeous and bright 6 year old girl. I love the beach, I’m a true pisces to my core, music is my soul and hair and makeup are terribly important to me. Every outing consists of me finding new places to shoot, my creative visions never end.

My heart's passion is to capture all the sweet moments in your life that make you smile. My style echoes moody vibes and painterly style finishes, that revolve around capturing your genuine connection in a beautiful and authentic way.
