About

Vibrant, polished, imaginative photography that leaves you feeling good in your own skin.

Hi! I’m Tia. I’m a photographer, personal trainer, and cat mom based in Phoenix, AZ. I specialize in shooting fitness+movement, adventure photography, small business concepts, and portraits of all kinds.

Here at Diamond Creative, we encourage you to dream big and have fun, while we strive to capture you at your best.

A little about me:

My professional mission is to empower people to feel good and confident in their own skin. I’ve been a personal trainer since 2010, and have helped thousands of people accomplish exactly this in fitness and beyond.

My passion for photography shares the same mission. I know that having your picture taken can be nervewracking, and I’m here to coach you through the process and truly make our sessions all fun and no work for you. I strive to shoot honest, true, authentic pictures that help you step into your power and capture you in your best light.

I work with clients of all photography backgrounds: from brand new and a little shy, all the way up to experienced models, and everything in between.

My specialties:

  • Bodybuilders, fitness models, and weightlifters
  • Dancers, yogis, and athletes of all varieties
  • Creative portraits, styled shoots, and headshots of all kinds
  • Elopements, engagements, couples’ sessions
  • Maternity and family sessions
  • Small business branding sessions

Experience:

  • Studio lighting, expert color+composition, flash photography
  • Golden hour, sunset+sunrise, and natural outdoor lighting
  • Destination and adventure photography
  • Advanced set and shoot design: high/low key lighting, powder, underwater, blacklight, and more

Background:

  • B.A. Psychology, THE Ohio State University
  • J.D., University of Arizona College of Law
  • Certified Personal Trainer, The American College of Sports Medicine
  • President and Head Trainer of FitPro, LLC since 2011
  • Hundreds of hours spent over 10+ years as a fitness model in front of the camera – which allows me to help you feel more comfortable while shooting, to effortlessly nail your posing, and to make your all-around experience more enjoyable and memorable

Looking forward to working with you!
