I was born and raised in a small town, Ft. Madison, Iowa, right on the Mississippi River. From a very young age, being outdoors was just what we did as kids, from the time the sun came up, till the porch lights came on at night. My Dad helped develop my love of nature, spending time in the woods, fishing, drives out on the country roads, and taking me to spend time on my grandparents' farm.

I married my high school sweetheart, almost 45 years ago. We had two children, a son and a daughter, and spent the next years raising our kids, and traveling throughout the country for my husband’s work.

We are now blessed with six grandchildren, three boys and three girls, ages 8-18. The only thing I knew about photography back then, well, was taking many pictures of my grandchildren. It wasn’t until about seven or eight years ago, a dear friend of mine sparked my interest in doing wildlife photography. I bought my first camera, and quickly fell in love with capturing moments in nature.

One thing that was always important to me was sharing my love of nature with my grandchildren. I started Grandmother’s For Nature, Photography by Tammy Kokjohn, to use my passion for photography to help all children have a better love for the natural world we live in. They naturally yearn to explore the outdoors, and to see the simple beauty in nature. One image at a time, whether it be a beautiful butterfly, an amazing landscape, or just a child observing animals. I feel that wildlife photography has power, it can inspire people to want to do more to protect all wildlife. As parents and grandparents, spending time in nature with our children will continue to benefit us all.

Tammy Kokjohn's Burrowing Owl in Flight, Ontario, CA was selected as the California Wildlife Photo of the Year Contest winner in 2020
