Tanja Rankin Photography – Welcome to my page!

Tanja Rankin Photography is based in Geelong West.
I live with my husband and three children and have been working as a professional photographer in Geelong for many years.
I specialise in pregnancy photography, newborn photos, family and wedding photography.


A Life Long Passion For Photography

I love making people look their best in their photos, so that they can look back at their images fondly, and remember that time of their life and all the happy memories that go with it.
There is no greater feeling of satisfaction, than when clients pick up their images and are so happy that they give me a hug or even cry ♥
I am so blessed to have been able to witness families growing, coming back every year to document their children one year older and taller, or families coming back with new little additions.

I love it when clients say they are not photogenic or don’t like being in photos, and with a little posing, and a partner to make them giggle, I can capture their true beauty and what
makes them shine. Creating gorgeous images for clients who have never been happy with photos of themselves, is truly rewarding.

Studio Photography

My natural-light-enhanced studio in Geelong West is filled with props and accessories to create stunning images.

Creating studio light images is something I have aimed to master over the years. I love the creativity that you can achieve with studio lig
I aim to keep all images simple, timeless and classic, so that you have photos that you will be able to cherish for ever.

Whether you decide to have a studio session or an outdoor session, this is a personal choice and I suggest to have a look through my recent shoots to help you decide which option you would like to go with.

Natural Light Photography

Working outdoors in natural environments and natural lighting makes every photo unique.
Children have a connection with the great outdoors and they are easily pleased when running around outside.
Being able to capture great photos of kids outdoors is always fun!

Creating personalised maternity images at one of our beautiful locations here in Geelong or along the Surf Coast is always rewarding.
Whether you choose a beach location, fields or amongst the green, I will capture your amazing baby bump at a location of your choice.

I usually aim to take your maternity photos near sunset, so depending on the time of year, it’s usually in the late afternoon or early evening.

Here are some examples of recent photo shoots around Geelong and on location throughout the Surf Coast, Victoria.

My Style

There is nothing more rewarding than capturing people – especially children – in all their honesty and purity, as who they are and then creating an image to keep forever.
Although my motto is to live in the present, and enjoy all the happiness (and tears) that come with raising children, I also love looking at a photo and remembering the story that that photo has to tell.

As a mother, I know all too well how quickly childhood goes by, and having photos to remember milestones and children growing is all the more important.

Capturing this precious time for families and being able to preserve these memories makes my job all the more fulfilling.
