First off... I'm taShanna Newland (tEn)... your photographer. I hail originally from Houston, Tx but currently reside in the Bay Area, CA. I am a dancer/choreographer/instructor by nature but a lover of all arts by desire, which is how I got into photography.


While teaching dance I was allowed the opportunity to capture my students perform from a completely different perspective with photography. While I was not only able to create lasting memories, I was also able to began exploring, in depth, photography as an art form in itself... 

(In comes the creation of X (tEn... like the roman numeral) Photography Studio).

X (tEn) Photography is a Conceptual and Visual Arts Studio. meaning... I specialize in offering artistic and dramatic visuals, props, and concepts that aren't just beautiful pieces of photographic art but are also quite the experience. Might sound a bit complex... but it's really not! Basically... I take really cool pics that will get your Insta some likes... and will leave you feeling like my muse! (And that's a good feeling!)

Now that you know a little about me... and a little about X Photography Studio...

let's talk. Let's create. let's shoot!
