I am so happy you are here! My name is Tayona Miller.

I am a  Crystal Lake Illinois based Lifestyle photographer. 

I specialize in Family, newborn and Commercial Photography. 

"Tayona Miller has an eye for quality. She is able to take the common themes and make them interesting through her lens. The talent and passion is seen through her shoots. Tayona shot at all 3 of our restaurants on Maui, and we were thrilled with the results. We were excited to receive such an amazing array of candid photos that really captured the energy and essence of our restaurants, as well as highlighting the dining experience with our incredible food and drinks. Many mahalos 

Tayona managed our chaos wonderfully! We had 8 adults and 6 children and it never felt out of control or uncomfortable. We all had a great time together and we love our photos!! We are so thankful to have beautiful images together and the memories of a great experience as well!

Loved up light photography is seriously THE BEST!! Tayona is so easy and fun to work with. It’s so easy to just be yourself with her because she makes you feel so comfortable! Trust me my husband get SO awkward when getting professional pictures done but with Tayona it was so easy for him to just be himself, and let loose, and just be all lovey on each other while having fun. So grateful I have these photos to look at while he is gone and feel the love we have for each other through the photos she captured!

My husband thought it was strange when I mentioned a photographer for our birth, & yesterday after our birth he was bragging about how cool it was, I’m so glad we were both able to be totally present and in the moment while you documented the moments for us.
