Hi, I’m Tara! I am a wife, mom to three beautiful children ages 22, 17, 14 and a dog lover! My passion for photography didn’t come to light until after the birth of our third child. I began my career by preserving home movies onto dvd’s and creating video montages for events with images set to music. It was during that time of watching the memories of families, friends and clients, that I realized I wanted to be the one capturing those moments. It is very important for me to build great relationships with my clients and create images that stand out. Clean, vibrant and timeless images that will not become outdated.
Professional photographs are so much more than ‘point and shoot’ snapshots. I see it as my job to both understand and leverage the latest photography products and techniques out there, to be able understand and adapt natural and artificial lighting, to be fluent in current and cutting-edge editing practices, and to continually improve my skills through coursework and membership in professional photography organizations. Of utmost importance is client-satisfaction. I want each of my clients to walk away with not only beautiful photographs, but also a positive, memorable experience that they feel good about.
I work closely with clients through each step of the process. From the moment of contact, deciding the best session, location, attire and goals. Sessions should feel relaxed and fun, in most cases, we laugh a lot! After the session, I will walk through what happens next. This typically includes a couple of ‘sneak peeks’ on Facebook and following up by email with a private, password protected gallery within two to three weeks. This allows an opportunity to review and order pictures from the comfort of home. I am always available to answer any questions and to assist with the ordering process by phone, or in person if that is more convenient.
