An Artist, among many other things
Hi, I’m Naomi Tajonera-Huffman (Huffman is new),
A photographer & mixed media artist from Detroit. Mostly known for my work in portrait photography & as a highly sought after framer at the Sherwood Forest Art Gallery here in Detroit, I have focused my nearly 10 year career on making sure the people on the other side of my lens feel special in a safe space. I've shot 36-hour newborns to 90-something first time authors with that same goal.
I began freelancing as a sophomore in college, starting with family portraits & beauty headshots for local amateur models. This later expanded into newborn photography, engagements, weddings, fashion & even some graphic design. I have even furthered my exploration into printmaking & sketches, while also taking on consultant work for others’ creative projects. Currently I am a resident artist & instructor at the CDAC (Center for Detroit Arts & Culture), & gallery associate at Sherwood Forest Art Gallery in Detroit, MI.
Feel free to browse my print shop, view my body of work, or just drop me a line. I would love to chat with you about your upcoming projects.
