We had the good fortune of connecting with Tanysha Parker and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tanysha, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
When I completed high school and made several attempts to complete college, I was yet still struggling to meet success. Spending most of my life trying to conform to the normalities of the world; you know get a degree, work for a company, get married, have kids and then live happily ever after. Over a period of time I began to feel lost, misplaced and overall hopeless to ever having a happily ever after.

Jumping straight into 2020, where I was then a mother of 1 to a 4-year-old son and was let go from job after job, and soon struggling to find work due to the pandemic. I hit my absolute lowest mentally and emotionally, which soon took a toll on me physically and spiritually. I never thought I was capable of being the creative type, but after a million prayers to finding peace, an interest soon sparked for photography/videography. I remember an experienced videographer was offering videography classes on the mechanics of the camera and suggested software to use. I put together whatever money I could and attended his 4-week course. I instantly fell madly in love with it all. Being able to tell a story without words and creating sequences to display the act all felt so exhilarating. It became second nature to me. Felt like I had been doing it for years, but it has only been the beginning for me.

From not knowing my place, to creating my very own was so rewarding. I turned what little I had into a business where I am now successfully generating income, creating imagery for clients who may need headshots, branding/lifestyle, sell a product or are even getting married. I am creating beautiful visual videos and/or photos on a day to day basis, traveling for commission or working in my place of residence, CreateHer Visuals is allowing me to live proudly and freely!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am Tanysha Parker and I am the proud Owner/Creator of CreateHer Visuals, where we make it our personal mission to capture a creative visual for you and your brand.

Photography/Videography is our passion. Their is something so special, so endearing about capturing those once-in-a-lifetime kind of moments. We seek out those intimate and joyful times at your portrait sessions all the way down to your wedding day by capturing the essence of every special moment on camera. Product photography attracts the right customers, tells a story, and lifts the overall quality of the product. Collectively we will develop a style designed for your products, then we will create a shot list and last but not least a backdrop or background that will be suitable for the products.

As we are focused exclusively on making memories, It is the added personal touch that allows us to photograph truly beautiful and unique moments that reflect you and whatever endeavor you will embark on. While I realize that there are other photographers/videographers with similar skills and more experience, I pride myself in being punctual, consistent and creative. No two sets of mine are just alike!
