My name is Mataya, but most call me Taya. I’m a lover of  art but consider photography as my main outlet. Since I can remember, I’ve always been fascinated by our story – our lives that is. The way God’s plan unfolds itself through time is a constant miracle in the making.

Finding my true love has been one of the best experiences in my life. Even though I have a story to tell, there’s nothing I enjoy more than listening to others talk about their experience. I can admit I am extremely passionate about getting to know my clients and capturing sincere, comfortable moments that will be cherished forever.

Minnesota is where I call home. I am settled on a small hobby farm that originated in 1928. I love the simple things such as watching the sun set in my backyard to the thunder storms that roll over our woods. I am a very laid back person and appreciate every part of nature – literally. In 2016 I was married on the North Shore to my amazing husband. He’s everything I could ask for and I love him with all my heart. We also share a beautiful young daughter that keeps us busy everyday with her cheerful soul.

With all that said – if you appreciate art, love the outdoors and are excited about your future because you are madly in love, I would love to get to know you. Let’s grab some coffee!
