community. culture. connection.

sweetmoon photography is about beautiful imagery,

personal stories and Indigenous experiences.


I want my art to reflect the laugh lines of my aunties,

the love of rez romances back home,

and to highlight the success and achievements

of the creative and determined people around me.


this year, we are all about reclaiming space,

creating conversations and always - always - loving this life.


be sure to check out the journal for the latest sessions.

about tenille aka sweetmoon

Ayyeeee. So I'm Tenille, the artist behind the camera. I'm Dene from English River First Nation, SK and Métis from the St. Laurent/Batoche area. I'm a self-taught photographer, have been in the business for ten years, am a writer and finally, a current grad student (smudge for me).

 

I specialize in photographing Indigenous people and telling our stories, and I enjoy travelling coast to coast and meeting all the new communities and families I photograph along the way. Woo me with your traditional foods and we gonna be friends for life, trust.

 

I'm often found hiding at the back of the room, or entertaining everyone at the front, on stage. There is no in between.

session info

I firmly believe that being in front of the camera

should be an uplifting experience that leaves you walking away

feeling strong, confident and powerful AF.

 

My sessions are generally natural-light and lifestyle based.

I provide directions and posing tips during the 45-minute long sessions,

but legit, the magic happens when you forget I'm there and just come into your own.

 

Clients receive digital images for their own printing and social media use.
