The Beauty Project - Tammy

Since I've been doing The Beauty Project I've had the opportunity to photograph several long time friends, and Tammy is one of those.  I've known Tammy for over 10 years and we've gotten to know eachother at church and through homeschooling our kids, who are also friends.  Enjoy her story and her beautiful portraits!

How old are you?  I turned the BIG 40 this past summer!

Are you from Calgary?  Yes

Are you married? Yes, for 18 years now.

Do you have children?  I have been blessed with two children, age 17 and 15 currently.

What do you do for a living?  I am a homeschool mom (on my 13th year!) and I work for a Christian homeschool board in Calgary.


Have you ever had a portrait session (by yourself) before? Yes, but that was years ago (22 years to be exact) and they were just head shots.

Why do you want to participate in The Beauty Project? This is an opportunity to take some time for myself and also have some fun with my friend! I have loved looking at your pictures, and look forward to having you work your magic on me!

What does beauty mean to you?  Beauty is more than what people see on the outside.  It is our individual personalities, the vast array of talents we each hold, the ambitions that drive us, the fact that we are made different, is a beautiful thing!

When do you feel the most beautiful?  I feel most beautiful when I have taken time for myself. Just being able to relax, unwind, and give myself that gift of time is a real treat.

What do you love about yourself?  I love my talent for decorating cakes and doing crafty things.  I also love my organizational skills, but it drives other people crazy!

Tammy,  congratulations on celebrating your 40th birthday!!  It was so much fun spending the day photographing you!  You are a beautiful lady, both on the inside and the outside and I am lucky to call you a friend.  Thank you so much for participating in The Beauty Project!!
