Looking for my website?

For some reason there's a glitch with the email address that I gave you in the newsletter. Please go here to get to my website - www.tammymcmillan.com


A great opportunity to spend some family time at a beautiful park and have some portraits taken of your children or family. We only have two dates available at this time, but hopefully more will be added throughout the summer.

First available date
Location - Sky Meadows State Park in Deleplane Virginia
Date - Sunday, June 8th
Time - 4:00pm / 4:45pm / 5:30pm / 6:15pm

Time slots will be filled as I get emails or calls so if you have a specific time that you need, please contact me asap because these go quickly.

Second available date
Location - Sky Meadows State Park in Deleplane Virginia
Date - June 4th
Times - 9:15am / 10:00am / 10:45

Time slots will be filled as I get emails or calls so please contact me asap if there's a specific time that you need.

*Mini Session will last 30 minutes
*Sitting fee is $50.00 and due at the time that you make the appointment
*If you order within 4 days of the time your images go online, you will receive a free sheet of 8 wallet images
*If there is inclimate weather we can find another time slot that will be suitable for you as the sitting fee is nonrefundable but a reschedule is guaranteed.
*All images will be put in an online gallery within two weeks of session time. Feel free to forward this onto family and friends to view

*15-20 images guaranteed, but there are typially more.

*Would be a great belated fathers day gift
*Would also be a good opportunity to have some portraits taken of the kids with their grandparents.
*This wouldn't be enough time for a senior or large family sessions. Those would need to be a full sessions, but could still be at Sky Meadows.

Oh my!

I just realized that I never shared some really fun sessions with you guys from last fall. Our lives turned into chaos right after a busy fall season so I never got to share. I'll gradually start to share before starting into Spring Stuff.

This is an event that I photographed at The Marriott Ranch for a local wedding reception after a destination wedding. Such a stunning place. You really should visit it, if you haven't.

No, I still don't do weddings

Just wanted to share a few that I took of a wedding that I did for our niece. I'll consider doing weddings for second marriages or possibly for someone who wouldn't be able to have a photographer otherwise, but it's just not my thing =)

Isn't this classic? I love this one.

My men! One giving the bride (his niece) away and the other as the ring bearer.

These are a few of my faaaaaaaaaaavorite things....

Come on, admit it! You're singing the song, aren't you? You'll be singing it all day. You can thank me later ;).

This is just a little "get to know me" session. Just thought I'd share a "few" of the things or products that I love.

1) Magic Erasers! If you HAVEN'T tried these - run, don't walk, to the store immediately. One of my BF's wen't on and on about how great these were and I thought for sure she had lost her mind or owned stock in the company. Well now I TOTALLY get it. Love these things!

2) Clean! I love the scent of clean. Not the "it smells like someone stuffed a dryer sheet up my nose clean" but nice subtle clean. My FAVORITE thing in the realm of clean is "clean sheets". Truly if I were rich I'd pay someone to wash my sheets every day so I could have that new sheet feeling every night. Ahhhhhhh!

3) Photography. I know, duh! But other than just portraits I also love taking landscapes and flowers and little details of life that we sometimes overlook. It just helps me to really look at the world instead of blowing by with blinders on. Today, I challenge you to pick up your camera and head out to see what interesting little thing that you can find to photograph.

4) The Outer Banks. Judging by the millions of OBX stickers on vehicles I'll assume that most of you know what I'm talking about. There are still parts of the OBX that are just the way they were when I was a little girl. The weathered grey houses on stilts and the cool little shops on beach road. I just love that place!
I'm there "almost" every summer so if you're ever interested in a beach session, please give me a call and we'll see if we can work something out.

5) Camping!! Most of you know that we spend a lot of time camping in the summer. Not "roughing it", but in a 5th wheel camper =). Camping to me means driving all the luxuries of home and parking it in nature - ha. No, but I love the people that you meet camping, hanging out by the campfire with friends and enjoying the time as a family. If any of you camp, let me know and maybe we can hook up for a trip! =). Here's a shot from a train trip that we took on the rainy camping trip to Gettysburg a few weeks ago. We DID have about a minute of sunshine long enough for me to take this picture.

6) TV reality - Okay, I admit it, I'm addicted. I think I need an intervention. I don't watch much TV, but never miss an opportunity to watch American Idol. Soooo..... who do you think is going to win? Little David or Sultry David? I'm going with Cook because he's been my fav from the beginning!

When I knew that he had to do a Moriah Carey song, I was all "Oh for the love of Tivo" how on EARTH is he going to pull this one off?? Well he did and with flying colors!!!

Okay, that's all for now.
