I stress myself out before family photo shoots - where and when and what will everyone wear so we're not too matchy but still coordinated? Getting everyone out the door on time, finding the location on time - stressed before it even starts.
Taneill takes the stress out of the process, starting from the first point of contact. She truly cares about her subjects - getting to know them every step of the way. Her relaxed, adaptable style combined with her exquisite eye for beauty and authenticity brings out the best in her subjects and the photos demonstrate this. Before you know it, the shoot is over and the hard part starts: waiting for the proofs. She blows us away every shoot. She illuminates the beauty in our family and in each of us.
We are so fortunate to have had her capture moments in our lives since the day our teen girl was born. Not only do we love her photos, everyone who sees them does too - there is just something special about her work.
Our family loved working with Taneill! Despite all the mosquitoes, she was able to get great outdoor family and individual shots of us. We could hardly choose between all of them; the final photos were so good we did a 12 frame photo collage!

Taneill is an amazing photographer. She creates great memories and does it in a comfortable, no-stress environment that adds to the experience. She really does have a certain way of making something that looks so ordinary seem so very important and special!
I have experienced maternity, newborn, toddler and family sessions with HuckleBee Photography. Every session has been outstanding from start to finish. Taneill is such a lovely person and an exceptional photographer. Her patience is beyond measure and she has a way of getting that perfect shot that will make your heart melt. The beautiful images she captured of my son and daughter as newborns and then as toddlers are priceless. I can't recommend Taneill enough! 100% worth the investment if you want AMAZING photos that you will cherish forever.
We have used Taneill for our maternity, newborn, toddler years, and family photos. To have the consistency in our photos of such a talented and amazing photographer and to watch our family grow through her lens has been such a wonderful experience. She is thoughtful, has a calm and patient manner, and takes the time and effort to produce exceptional, high-quality work that we will treasure.
Taneill is a wonderfully talented photographer, and I can honestly say that because she was able to take pictures of my family that look effortless and natural...even when her "subjects" may not always be cooperative (ie. not paying attention, restless, and I am referring to all of the boys in my family, big and small). We have tried other photographers but have never had the success that we've had with Taneill. Her calming approach and patience work in harmony with her talent which results in absolutely beautiful pics.
Taneill is an amazing photographer and the sweetest person to work with. She was so very kind and caring with our family. She captured many incredible newborn and maternity pictures; so many memories we will treasure for years to come. She made us feel very comfortable and relaxed during both shoots and she never rushed us once. She went above and beyond to get so many great shots and made sure she had captured everything we wanted. She was extremely flexible and worked with us from beginning to end from when we shot to where we shot to what to do with the pictures afterward. She was so patient with our 4-year-old during both sessions and was so gentle with our little girl. She was able to give great suggestions on locations, poses and clothing choices. She was so awesome after the shoot as well - she worked hard to get what we wanted for announcements, a newborn album, and pictures for our home. The fact that she comes to your house to help design photo's for the walls is incredible! It helped me take the photos from my computer onto my walls! I never felt pressured or unsure about anything; she was always prompt in getting back to me and answering any questions I had. She is truly an amazing photographer to work with both as a person and as a really talented photographer to capture life's precious memories and moments!
We are thrilled with the newborn photographs that Taneill took for us. She captured sweet moments and beautiful little details with her shots. Her warmth and patience made for a relaxing and enjoyable shoot.
Having photographs of your family can be the most cherished possession one can have. Taneill did such an awesome job photographing our little family. With two rambunctious dogs, she was patient and understanding. Taneill took so much pride in editing, making sure our captured moments were flawless. Taneill was kind, professional and obviously passionate. Anyone looking for a great photographer, HuckleBee photography is absolutely who we recommend.

Taneill recently took photos of me, my partner and our new puppy. The finished product was even better than what I had imagined! She made us feel relaxed and special. She has a very special way of doing that :) I highly highly recommend Taneill if you are looking for an amazingly imaginative and talented photographer.
This beautiful lady is just about one of the most positive and patient people I have ever met. Not only did she give me beautiful family pictures that I can treasure for my lifetime, but she was amazing with my son. She was supportive before the pictures happened answering all my questions and giving me any advice that may help on picture day. But even after the pictures were taken and the money exchanged hands one of the most touching things she did was take time out of her busy life to encourage me as a mother and as a woman. From start to finish this was a beautiful experience

Taneill recently took our family photos and she nailed it. She is an ideal planner who outlines your session schedule nicely via email and communicates as much as possible prior to the date. I was very comfortable having her around my child and very happy with the finished images. Overall, Taneill is very passionate about photography and I am sure that clients can definitely feel the energy from her dedicated work and efforts. It is very hard to find the right photographer who is a perfect match with your preferences. You won't be disappointed with her!

Last fall our beautifully talented friend Taneill took our long overdue family photos. You could say I was more than impressed. My breath was taken away how she captured my beautiful children and our loving family. You will not feel like you just met Taneill; she makes everyone feel so comfortable and at ease. Her photographers eye is exceptional! Her ideas, like involving what the kids are into at that time in their lives, are so thoughtful. Contact HuckleBee Photography and you will have those precious memories captured forever.

We were blessed to have Taneill take our family pictures this spring. Our children were tired and out of sorts and I was anxious that our children were tired and out of sorts! Taneill was amazing!! She was so calm and in control. She captured the greatest pictures imaginable of our family (even including grandparents!) and I couldn’t be happier with them. She even designed a display of family pictures for our wall and the pictures arrived at our door! Truly the greatest experience!! We will be forever grateful :)
We were fortunate to have Taneill take photos of our very active puppy. It was a unique situation as it marked a momentous occasion to welcome our Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Olive, and also helping us close a chapter from the sadness we were feeling from the loss of our previous 15 ½ year old Wheatie, Danni.
Animals are unpredictable creatures so we didn’t know what to expect at a “puppy shoot” – but Taneill is a pro and created an environment to capture authentic moments. Taneill looked at a room, the lighting, the energy of her furry, inattentive subject and she intuitively knew what to do. There is one photo that she took where it looks like Olive is telling me that she’s here to help our hearts feel happy again – WOW! I couldn’t believe she caught that on camera.
It may be easy to whip out your phone and think you’re getting “the shot”, but Taneill captures the moment; she’s collaborative and invested in the experience and I’m so glad she’s sharing her amazing talent. She’s one of a kind and we look forward to working with her again in the future.

Our family pictures are my favourite to date! It's not often as a mom you feel you look good in family photos but I love these. Taneill was so amazing and creative, the location she scouted out in advance was beautiful! Effortless and fun even for the kids! I have received so many compliments on the photos, they really capture each of us in a genuine way. Thank you so much Taneill for sharing your talent with us and giving us these timeless treasures!

HuckleBee Photography is the best photo experience we have ever had. Several times over Taneill has shared her natural gifts of professionalism, enthusiasm, tenacity, and creativity. From newborn shots of our only son to full extended family photo sessions outside in the snow, Taneill portrays us as we are with a focus on our dynamic family energy. I love the "out-takes" as much as the formal photos, she never stops snapping shots and her thoroughness produces photos that go beyond images. I can see our hearts and our true selves shining through in every shot.

Taneill was amazing to work with. We did newborn and family pictures at her home and were blown away by her attention to detail. Not only did she have an amazing space for my two older boys to play with toys but also provided snacks and drinks for them. She was so patient when working with our newest addition and our final pictures reflect her artistic eye. We could not be happier!
