Dallas Family Photographer

Serving the DFW metroplex

and Destinations worldwide



Forget the "cliche headshot" canned family photos. My style evokes a very 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 absolutely 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 are available for $250 per session.

Family photos shouldn't be all posed and photoshopped to cliché perfection. I bring out genuine smiles and candid moments with my G-rated jokes! I can create beautiful images for you under any lighting situation - just let me know what you're looking for, and I will make sure to create that for you!

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 both 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 begin at $475/hr and includes five complimentary digital images, travel up to 10 miles from my studio, all culled and artistically edited images delivered via an online gallery, and a personal print and use permit for obtained photos. Additional hours, print, and album upgrades available. Please contact me for a custom quote for your extended family session.

Love Notes

Our family had an amazing and unforgettable experience with Tara. We had our family together for the first time in over a year and because of commitments would only be together for one day. Having just recently moved to the Dallas area I had no idea who to trust to capture this moment for us. I contacted several photographers and Tara was the only one who responded back. She was already booked for the day but when hearing our situation was able to have us come to her studio beforehand. She is a gracious, fun and talented photographer. Thank you Tara for capturing this reunion for us!
