I SEE THE WORLD VERY DIFFERENTLY AFTER BECOMING A MOTHER.

JoBurg based Lifestyle Photographer
At home you can usually find me playing with my kids, cheersing a G&T or Netflixing with my Hubby. I'm a coffee drinker, sushi lover & photographer of happy humans.
I also love to travel, and I’ll hop on a plane in a heartbeat to photograph you.
I want to build a genuine relationship with each person in front of my camera and tell your story in the truest way possible, so that is why there's lots of chatting & laughter.
THE TAMARYN LEE METHOD
I like to think of my style as warm & moody but honestly I feel it depends on the shoot, sometimes I could go cooler,
sometimes brighter but I always tend to steer towards the dark side.
The words "Lifestyle Photography" are used far too often these days. So here is how I see it:
I love to capture the in-betweeen moments, where you laugh at something your partner whispered in your ear, the more serious moment of your daughter looking straight into my lens, not smiling. The crying, the tantrums and the cuddles. It's less posed and more real.
I am adventurous and most of the time you're walking through long grass and getting a little bit dirty - I call it Bundu Bashing without the 4x4.
If you're after all the real moments, then I'm the photographer for you.

Such a wonderful experience. Tamaryn was kind enough to redo our shoot when the weather wouldn't cooperate. Her photos are gorgeous and I am so impressed with how she captured my son, just like the wild child he is! I will treasure the images from our shoot forever. Thank you Tamaryn.

It was our first family shoot in ages. The last time we did this was four years ago for a new born baby shoot. You made the entire family feel completely comfortable and relaxed. All strange forced poses are avoided given your amazing style of photography. Extra special shout out for the great music and taking requests from the kiddos. Our little ones can't wait for the next shoot. Hubby and I enjoyed our mini romantic photo moments in between. Proof is the pudding our pictures are stunning. Thank you until we meet soon again.

Tam is one of the most wonderful and skilled photographers that we have worked with. We felt completely relaxed and comfortable throughout the whole session. The pictures are timeless and she managed to captured so much happiness. Would 10/10 recommend.
Siobhan // JOHANNESBURG
Tamaryn has photographed many many milestones in my family's life. Our relationship started with the magical way in which she captured my engagement to my then fiance. Tamaryn managed to then capture my sister's engagement pics and the love they feel for one another to the tee. After that and because her photographs are always classy, beautiful and completely capture the emotion of every moment, we asked Tamaryn to photograph our intimate garden wedding and true to form, when I fell pregnant, she elegantly photographed me at my most vulnerable and made me feel and look (especially in the photographs) absolutely beautiful. I cannot sing her praises as a photographer enough and she has certainly crept her way into our hearts as a friend. I would highly recommend her to anyone for any milestone in life, to allow her into your life to capture the love felt at each and every stage, she is absolutely brilliant at that. With love, always, Siobhan.

I can honestly say that we could not have had a better experience. Not only was Tammy an absolutely lovely person but she managed to make us feel so comfortable the whole time. At the end of the shoot I felt as if we had know each other for years. Even though I felt like we were being super awkward, the photos tell a different story. She has a magical power of being able to capture the most enduring moments and make it look really natural. I would just like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for an incredible experience. I would highly recommend hiring her as a photographer.

Tammy is a one of a kind human who has a wonderful talent to get the best shots with such grace and patience. She always goes the extra mile and gives you more than you expect. From positioning herself anywhere to get the perfect shot, providing the jaw dropping moment when you see your album. We love what you do Tam.

A huge shout out to Tammy!
Our family has had Tammy as our personal photographer twice, once for a family shoot and once for our wedding day. She did an excellent job both times. Her pictures came out beautifully and she captured every special moment. She also went out of her way to record a little clip while we did our wedding pictures. To top it all off, Tammy's kind heart and friendly personality makes her easy to be around. It felt like we knew her for years! Thank you Tammy! Hope to see you soon!

Honestly an amazing photographer! Easy to work with! And the best part FANTASTIC RESULTS! I Love everything about her work and also her kind nature and easiness!
KELLY - MATERNITY // JOHANNESBURG
Tammy was beyond amazing! She was so accommodating and ensured the shoot was done even though it ended up being a rainy weekend and we had to reschedule times at the last minute. She is so friendly and truly made us feel comfortable. I'm generally awkward when it comes to posing for photos and will look the same in most photos, but Tammy put us at ease and made everything feel and look natural with no awkward posing. She gave us just enough advice/tips on what to do and made us feel ourselves throughout.It was really worth having a make up artist on site prior to the shoot which Tammy helps organise. Highly recommend her if you're wanting to feel comfortable and are wanting natural photos. Can't wait to book our newborn shoot with her!

What an expectational experience!
Tam has a wonderful high energy vibe that made the shoot a fun, chilled, playful vibe. she chose the most gorgeous setting - with cosmos in full bloom. my hubby who isn't keen on having his photo taken - felt super relaxed and enjoyed the experience.
From the initial brief - Tam was engaged, creative and shared heaps of tips from choosing the colours, venue, outfits and made the poses look and feel so organic. Loved working with Tam. Will definitely do more shoots with her in the future,
