Hello, I'm Tara!



Let's get one thing straight—I'm not your average photographer. Think of me as the slightly more put-together version of Wednesday Addams, camera in hand, ready to work my magic. I'm selective about my clients, 'cause I pour my heart and soul into capturing your special moments.


After 17 years in the game, I've learned that people don't hate having their photos taken—they just haven't found the right person behind the lens. Someone who'll fix your hair during the shoot, pass you a tissue during tear-jerking vows and break out the Cupid Shuffle for the umpteenth time (still loving every second of it!).


So, if you're on the hunt for a photog who's professional when grandma's around, but isn't afraid to yell "HOLY SH*T, THAT WAS IT!!!!" when we nail the perfect shot, then we definitely are a match made in Taradise!

One of the best and easiest decisions we made for our wedding...

One of the best and easiest decisions we made for our wedding was having Tara be our photographer. To say she was professional, jovial and immensely talented throughout every session would be a great understatement. She truly is this and SO MUCH more. During our engagement session Tara made us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera. During the wedding, Tara must have been on ninja mode, because I don't recall seeing her move around us or the guests, but my goodness did she capture some amazing moments, big amd small, of that day. She is great at communicating and asks all the right questions to make sure she gives you the best experience. Everyone in our group absolutely fell in love with her. I cannot recommend her enough! Do yourself a favor and reach out to this amazingly talented human.

She is extremely sweet, professional and flexible so you feel perfectly at ease every time!

My husband and I literally can't say enough good things about Tara! We have used her as our photographer for the last four years for our engagement, wedding, maternity and newborn photos. She is amazingly talented with an eye for shots we would never have seen. But more than that, she is extremely sweet, professional and flexible so you feel perfectly at ease every time! We honestly can't believe she was able to get great lifestyle and posed shots with a squirmy, fussy newborn - it was like magic! Love our photos that we will treasure forever :) thanks Tara!!

Her passion, energy, and heart translated so beautifully into her work!

We LOVE Tara! If we could give her more than 5 stars, we would! We give her 5+ stars all across the board. She was so professional, always early, and she took the time to get to know us as a couple. From the moment we chatted on the phone, we knew we found the one! Her passion, energy, and heart translated so beautifully into her work! We were beyond amazed by what she had captured!! She went above and beyond for us. She jumped into pouring rain to take the most beautiful picture for us, which we’ll be passing onto future generations. We absolutely love Tara and her amazing team. We can’t wait for more milestones in our lives, so we can have Tara capture them all. We’re so blessed to have found her. She is a gem!

She's a lovely person and a fantastic photographer...

My fiance and I were in a bit of a jam when it came to our wedding plans being derailed by COVID. After much searching and messaging, we stumbled across Tara's website and fell in love. The quality of her work was apparent and we knew immediately that we wanted her as our photographer. Communication is key and Tara always got back to us quickly regarding any questions or concerns. She really went above and beyond in getting to know us in a short period of time to get the kinds of pictures we had dreamed about of our wedding day! When the day of the wedding came, Tara arrived promptly and had us comfortable and laughing in no time. It was like being photographed by a friend and there were no awkward moments at all! But, even more than that, our wedding pictures turned out absolutely beautiful. We got them a few short weeks after our wedding and they were just as lovely and unique as I had hoped they would be. I couldn't be happier with the pictures and I feel like Tara really understood what we were going for on our wedding day. I would definitely recommend Tara as a photographer to anyone who asked! She's a lovely person and a fantastic photographer.

The Essense

of my art

Diversity is more than just a buzzword here—it's the very essence of my brand. I'm dedicated to creating an inclusive, welcoming space where everyone is respected and celebrated. My photography isn't just about capturing images; it's about showcasing the beauty of humanity in all its glorious forms.


Discrimination has no place here. Racism, sexism, xenophobia, transphobia, homophobia, and ableism are all vehemently opposed. My mission is to cultivate an environment of unconditional acceptance, where love and equality are the foundation of every interaction.


Through my art, I seek to honor the diverse tapestry of human experience, recognizing and celebrating the unique story each person brings.

In this space, you're not just seen—you're cherished.
