Tonya ~ Thank you so much for making Emme's senior picture experience the best we could have possibly imagined! Everything was perfect! Holly did an awesome job on her hair, and her makeup was flawless! You made it stress-free and fun, and I was overwhelmed by all of the compliments from our friends, family and even complete strangers! Your work is amazing, and we will cherish these pictures for a lifetime! Thanks again!

Everything about our daughter’s senior photo shoot was professional and of the highest quality…. The pre-consult to assess our daughter’s personality and interests, beautiful hair and makeup done by Maggie, and of course the gorgeous and artistically creative photos by Tonya that we will cherish forever!

Debbie Duffy


Tonya has really invested much thought in her business and it shows. I appreciate her willingness to get to know our daughter, and allow input for creative ideas at our consultation. I was impressed by her attention to detail during our photo shoot, so many little things to consider that create stand-out photographs. However it was the quality and presentation of the finished product that impressed me most. I can tell she really cares about her work. Thank you Poetic Grace & Co, it's everything we had hoped for and more.

What is Fine Art & Painterly Style Photography

Fine art photography is a deliberate vision portrayed by the artist usually with great feelings and emotions or to convey a concept.   It's not just about taking pictures, it's about creating art.  It is also about the end product being top quality fine art prints.  I use the painterly style in my fine art portraits as it makes  your portraits feel more like a painting.  Painterly style is very time consuming process.  Using blending colors of skin tones and adding greater depth with shadows and highlights.   One image with the painterly edits can take several hours, maybe even days to create.   Because of the time involved in plannning, executing and post processing the Fine Art & Painterly Style photography then the prices and packages reflect that time and energy involved in this type of work.  Yes, it does cost a little more then my regular packages but they are unique one of a kind pieces of art.

Planning Your Session

an exciting part of the process is the planning phase.  There are so many possiblities when it comes to planning the session and it all depends on how you want your artwork to look in the end and how you want to feel about yourself when you look at it everyday.   

You also want to consider the color of your walls and style of your home so that it compliments the area you want your artwork to go.  

Each photoshoot starts with a styling consultation.  During this consultation we get to know one another, we discuss how you want to look in your artwork, styling options and how to prepare for the photoshoot, 

 Consultations usually last about an hour.
