Serving the DFW metroplex
and Destinations worldwide
Out of aaaaall the family photographers in Dallas, I'm so happy you found your way here! Look around, dig up the internet for my reviews, and send me a note below from my contact form if you think we'd be a good fit. I want to connect with you, get to know you and your fam (furkids do count as your family!), and bond in a way I can genuinely capture YOU.
Forget the "cliche headshot" canned family photos. My style evokes a natural, everyday look - with a bit of an artistic twist. I freeze time and create lasting memories of your family's life together. I'll be running around, being a kid with your kid. I'll get your teenager to put down their phone and crack a smile. And your furkid will love me because of all the treats I'll bring to the session to bribe them. ;)
What's the turnaround time for photos?
Although I love posting sneak peeks on social media and blogging about my work, full galleries are available 2-4 weeks after the shoot. In a hurry and need your photos sooner? Rush editing with 2-day delivery is available for $250 per session.
"But Tara, we are so awkward in front of the camera!"
I've been saying this for a while, "If I had a jar where I collected a penny for every time I hear this, I'd be rich by now." Well - the day has come, and I got myself one of those acrylic jars (imagine a swear jar, but for saying "I'm not photogenic"), so make sure to bring some change when you visit me because, for sure, Imma collect that dime and later prove you wrong - and that you look fantastic in photos! ;)
What should we wear?
I want you to look your best, feel your best, and have a fantastic time. Whether casual or dressy, I want you to fall back in love with your photos every time you look at them. Run your wardrobe options by me, and we will create the look you want together. You don't have to stress about it!
How can I book?
I limit my family sessions to once per week and recommend booking at least a month ahead of time. This scheduling allows me to give each family the time and attention they deserve before (wardrobe & location counseling) and after (editing and delivery). I require a signed contract and payment for the booking.
How about pricing and upgrades?
Pricing for family portraits begins at $595/hr. It includes all culled and artistically edited images delivered via an online gallery, full-resolution images and printed products available for purchase, travel up to 10 miles from my studio, and a personal print and use permit for obtained photos. Additional hours, prints/products, and album upgrades are available. Don't hesitate to contact me for a custom quote for your extended family session.
The easiest and (most reliable) way to contact me is through my contact form. As I'm always on the go, I'm not always able to answer my phone. Besides, I get a poop ton of spam calls.
I wouldn't want you to get all mixed up in those! :)
