  • Hi, I’m Tammi Ambrose. Wife. Mom. Introvert. Coffee addict.
    Visual storyteller. 

    I specialize in documentary and lifestyle photography of families and children. I’m located in Rockwall, Texas, and work with clients throughout Dallas and North Texas. 

    I don’t just capture lovely smiles, perfect poses and beautiful backgrounds. I tell stories. Real stories of your beautiful, crazy, messy, joyful, perfectly imperfect life. Whatever season of life you’re in, it will only last a short time. Especially when children are little, the tiny details that define your life at this moment will change all too quickly. And if they’re not documented today, those precious details will quickly fade in your memory. With storytelling photo sessions, my goal is to transform those fleeting moments into timeless keepsakes you’ll cherish for years to come.

  • Genres


    Ditch the perfectly-coordinated outfits and cheese-smiles and embrace the beauty of real life! For lifestyle or documentary sessions, I spend time before your session finding out as much as I can about your family—what your normal routine includes, what activities are special to you, and what you want to remember most about this stage of life. Then we plan a session to document some of those things in a unique and meaningful way.


    These special stylized sessions are similar to lifestyle sessions because they often involve activities. However, they’re a bit more “fiction” rather than real life. They usually revolve around a theme or activity that your child loves. Then the location, wardrobe and props are all planned very carefully to create an intriguing story. It can be something really simple styled around your child’s Halloween costume, something totally elaborate and over-the-top, or anything in between! Because of the additional time and cost involved to plan these sessions, there is usually an additional cost. Contact me for more information.

  • Settings


    For documentary-style session, I really encourage clients to consider an in-home session. This is where you make so many of your memories, and it’s often where you will be the most comfortable, relaxed and natural. In your home, I can document everyday activities that you want to remember—reading books, playing in your child’s playroom or the back yard, snuggling on the master bed, baking cookies, doing crafts, or giving your child a bath. Real moments that represent your current stage of life. 

    Out & About

    Or if you prefer not to have an in-home session, we can plan an outing perfect for your family—a picnic in the park, going to the State Fair of Texas, a trip to an old-fashioned soda fountain, or just playing at a playground. The possibilities are endless. We’ll work together to plan a session that truly represents your unique interests and personalities.
