I'm Dana Tate

I’m a small-town Missouri photographer, stylist, and entrepreneur with big dreams and a love for bringing out the beauty in everything.  I am your classic girly girl with a heart of gold. I am obsessed with Disney, sour gummy bears, all things beauty, and giant dogs (I am a long time great dane owner and fanatic!)

The images I create are a unique reflection of you and those you love. That’s why I adore getting to know you personally — then I can tell your story beautifully. My authentic shooting style blends the beauty of classic portraiture and lifestyle photography creating images that naturally reveal the best parts of you and your story.

Photography is my passion and it shines through in every thing I create. 


I am not just a photographer

Hi, I’m Dana Tate! I am not just a personal branding head shot photographer, I am also a senior portrait photographer, a visual marketing expert, a mom, a seasoned stylist, an award winning makeup artist, as well as a pretty talented home chef if I do say so myself!

Bringing out the beauty in others is my jam, but I have never been able to stop there!!! I thrive on showing others their beauty, inside and out. By blending the skills of styling and photography, this lent itself perfectly to senior portrait photography, and I grew my brand from there.
Over the years I have developed my dream business. I not only work with seniors, I also blog about beauty tips and I help people grow their businesses the way I grew my own. We create cohesive branding images for corporate executives, network marketers, small business owners, social media boss babes, and entrepreneurs who want to authentically connect to their audience, up-level their confidence, and inspire trust by helping their customers see the real and relatable person behind their brand. Let’s connect so we can see how we can take your business to the next level!
