I'm Tonya, owner and photographer at Tonya Marie Photography in Mineral Point, WI. I've always loved taking photos but didn't get serious about it until I began the Enthusiast Course at 'Click Love Grow.' After finishing, I joined their Advanced Course and in August of 2017 I began this business. I specialize in Family Lifestyle Sessions but offer other sessions as well.

Often, my free time is spent supervising shifts for an online suicide hotline where I have been since 2017. My "day job" is working as a Case Manger and Youth Skill Builder for kids on my case load who have special needs. 

I'm also a wife and mom of two girls who are growing WAAAAAAAAAAY too fast. Part of my "WHY" in photography is to document our lives together before they're even older yet. I love being able to offer the same services to other families as well.
