A mother of six, Tiffanie Lloyd developed her photographic skills by taking pictures of each of her young ones. This hobby soon developed into Tiffanie Lloyd Photography, where Tiffanie uses her expert eye to snap shots of other people's newborns and children. Though happy to use props, Tiffanie mostly eschews bells and whistles at her on-location or in-studio sessions, preferring to capture childhood innocence with straightforward compositions. To preserve her client's favorite images, she offers a slew of products, from prints and framed wall portraits to photo coasters and stickers. Along with paid work, Tiffanie lends her talents to numerous charitable causes, such as taking free photographs of high-school seniors in foster care.
Some amateur shutterbugs spend years building a portfolio, shopping around their work, and praying to the Norse god of f-stops, but Cedar Rapids photographer Sherrie Busch’s pictures did all the work for her.

Once her family and friends caught a glimpse, however, they were beating down her door to take their photos as well. She specializes in on-location work, whether it’s for high-school seniors, families, engagements, newborn babies, or children.
