Hello, my name is Tonya.
The "T" Behind T Hawke Photography
I have been photographing every aspect of life for over 12 years. I have been blessed to have been a part of many beautiful weddings, got to meet newborns in their first weeks of life, watched families grow, documented senior year milestones and photographed hundreds of fur babies.
When I started my business, I wanted to experience it all and enjoyed every moment! I can't wow you will a list of degrees, I am 100 percent self-taught with nature talent. I have spent years studying various styles of photography, countless hours learning editing techniques. I am a firm believer that you can achieve whatever you want in this life if you work hard enough. Never give up on your dreams.
This year in 2021 I will be making a change. I am sad to announce I will no longer be offering Wedding Photography at this time. My new focus will be placed on Pet Portraits, Senior Year Milestones, and of course Family. There are only so many hours in a day. I finally decided I had to downsize.
Just in case you are wondering a few things about me!
First, I have a very laid-back personality. I worked for others for so many years and had to follow their rules and their vision.
Now I follow mine. Which translates to casual Friday- only every day!
I love soda, so very much. Pepsi and Mountain Dew are the devil for me.
I am in love with nature, birds, flowers...you will find me frequent the garden centers often!
Pets are my passion. Currently I have 3 sassy cats and 2 of the naughtiest dogs in the world - Dachshund and a Husky Mutt ..need I say more? All rescues, all adored.
I am a home body by far - I love spending time with my husband and two kids and 5 fur babies. Fishing, biking and walking are among my favorites. Anywhere quiet.. that is what I love!
Which brings me to my other job- not so quiet!
I work at the middle school here in Wisconsin Rapids as well. So you can imagine why I like my quite time.. did I mention I am witty as well?
I also love digital painting, my passion is creating portraits of people's pets in beautiful locations.
To be honest I have so many hobbies I could write you a book here. Consider this the table of contents.
I am so happy you stopped by and I really hope I get the chance to meet you, your family and your pets.
My promise to you is to bring my skill, love of light and life together with your vision to create....
-Your Something Beautiful-
Thank you for stopping by- T
