Hello! I’m Tanli, a Cotswold outdoor family photographer based in the gorgeous Roman town of Cirencester, Gloucestershire.  I offer a contemporary fresh approach to family photography producing naturally beautiful and emotionally rich photographs. My outdoor shoots are ‘play based‘, easy and very relaxed, so relaxed in fact, that my wonderful clients have said that a shoot with me is literally like a ‘walk in the park’.

I use a creative and fun method to evoke natural expressions and spontaneous moments in my shoots,  and adults and children alike find my shoots easy and enjoyable. There is never ever a moment where you need to feel awkward in front of the camera as I have an incredibly easy shooting style.

"As a grumpy father, whose wife regularly drags him into family photoshoots, I can't recommend Tanli highly enough. From the off it was a natural family experience in which Tanli was able to fade into the background and gently nudge us and our 7 and 3 year-olds along without any real staging. The result was the first family photoshoot that I've ever actually enjoyed, and the best family pictures we've ever had!"

Tanli Joy Photography was absolutely wonderful to work with, especially as a young family. Our children are very active, and she got some great photos of them and images of our little family. It was a very relaxed shoot and she emphasized everyone being calm and natural, which I really appreciated. She's very friendly and professional. We definitely recommend her!

We recently had a photo shoot with Tanli, our second family photoshoot with her, and we once again are beyond thrilled with the outcome and genuinely love every single shot! Tanli has managed to once again perfectly capture our family dynamic and given us a truly wonderful selection of prints to forever keep and cherish.
Tanli is an absolute pleasure to work with and the shoot never feels forced or uncomfortable. She is brilliantly patient and interactive with the kids, making it a genuinely relaxed and fun session - I thoroughly recommend her! Thanks so much again Tanli for your time and vision - it was great to see you again and you’ve made what can be a truly uncomfortable mission (having your photo taken! 🙈) a complete joy! We’ll see you again for the next one!
