I photograph families doing what they normally do.
...the kind of stuff that makes every day start to blend into the next— until one day you realize that the things you took for granted aren't how they used to be anymore. Music classes, nose kisses, and hair smelling of baby shampoo, suddenly makes way for board games, baseball in Central Park, and backpacks stuffed with paper.
And while your Camera Roll is full of pictures that you've snapped of the kids (and practically evidence that they're raising themselves), you deserve to have some photos that you're in too, so you can see that you're doing a f*cking awesome job with your family. (Even when weirdness happens when your back's turned for a second.)
Posed pictures are pretty, but they miss capturing real life, how it actually happened.
"[TOVA'S] PHOTOGRAPHY AND STYLE IS ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING: WE STILL LOOK AT THESE PHOTOGRAPHS EVERY DAY, AND EVERY TIME WE CONTINUE TO SEE SOMETHING NEW... [THE] PHOTOS...EVOKE A MEMORY, AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HER PHOTOGRAPHY DOES: PICTURES OF EVERYDAY LIFE THAT WILL TAKE US BACK TO THE MOMENT THAT THEY WERE TAKEN, WHICH CAPTURES A SPECIAL TIME IN OUR FAMILY'S LIFE.
I was hoping for a lot and got so much more. I couldn't recommend her highly enough."
