Be Bold.  Be Brave.


We live in a Social Media dominated world that pushes an idealized version of reality – where everyone is…well…perfect. At Tanja Melone Photography, I want to break all of that.  I want you to be YOU – imperfectly, beautifully, unapologetically YOU.  I want you to embrace your crooked smile, your freckles, your quirks and “flaws”… and then I want to capture THAT version of you and show you how absolutely perfectly unique and wonderful YOU are.

I’m not interested in cookie-cutter photos that look like all of your friends. I want to work with you to create bold, bright, editorially-inspired senior photos that tell YOUR story…all while creating a fabulous experience I hope you’ll never forget.

ONLY 40 Class of 2023 sessions Available!!

Location, Location, Location

Mix & Match to Fit Your Style


The studio is located in Lower Downtown Denver, right in the heart of the RiNo Arts District with it’s graffiti, texture, skyline views – urban at it’s best.


I love to travel to great outdoor locations and know dozens of fabulous hideaways for your fabulous natural photos.  Have another location in mind – perfect!


The studio rocks – with a stunning courtyart, lots of charm, and enough lighting equipment to stock a warehouse.  Did I mention the 10 foot white couch?

The Process

When is a photo shoot not about photos?  When it is with TMP Seniors!!

I work hard to make sure that your senior photo experience is more than just photos.  I want to make it as stress-free, fun, and memorable as it can possibly be – holding your (sometimes virtual) hand through the whole process.  I want to feel confident, gorgeous, and absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. To that end, let’s take a quick peek at the timeline for the Senior Photo process!



I know you have WAY more questions than I can answer in one little caption, so…step 1 is to reach out using the contact form below.  Once you do that, an electronic carrier pigeon will deliver the TMP Senior Magazine right to your inbox!  That magazine is filled cover to cover with everything you’ll need to know about senior photo sessions with me – from what to expect, session options, products, full pricing & so MUCH more.



After you book, we’ll start planning your perfect session! It all starts with the senior questionnaire – a way for me to get an initial glimpse into who you are, what you’re looking for, and what is going to make your session unique. I’ll also send you an electronic Welcome Packet, which will have everything you need to know including wardrobe preparation, prepping for hair & makeup, and more. Finally, we’ll have a chat about wardrobe, location, and other session details so that we are set to create phenomenal photos together.



The bid day!  We’ll meet at our chosen location and start (most of the time) with hair and makeup – basically, you get pampered while I chat excitedly about what is to come. Once you are picture-perfect we’ll get shooting!  We’ll choose the perfect backdrops for your outfits and fit the mood to each look – creating magazine-worthy photos that will make you feel fabulous.  A word of caution:  you might just realize how beautiful you truly are!



Every TMP Senior Session includes a custom Image Premiere & Product Design session about a week after your photo shoot. This is the big reveal!!  This is when you get to ooh and awe over your images and your mom gets to cry!  This is also when I get to work with you to select the best images and design the perfect photo products for your home. We can actually see how YOUR photos will look in YOUR home!   (and, yes, we do digitals as well).
