I'm Tara, and I am a natural light photographer, based out Charlotte, North Carolina. However, my business was born & bred where I was-The San Francisco Bay Area. 2015 brought a year of changes, including a relocation to this beautiful part of our country.
I discovered my passion seven years ago, when my first son was born and my husband bought me my first DSLR camera. There was nothing more appealing to me then spending my days capturing every tender moment and gorgeous feature of my new baby.
From there, a little career was born and started to grow.
While I love all types of photography, my real love is with people. Making them laugh, feel comfortable and confident, and sharing in the special events in their life.
I'm that photographer that will cry right along with you when you take your wedding vows, and want to snuggle up on your newborn before we even start taking pictures.
My style is much more candid and casual, rather than posed and traditional. I like to capture those raw emotions, feelings, and personalities.
I love photography and find documenting everything from daily life, to the big events in life, to be so fulfilling.
On a personal note, I have been married to my best friend for ten years, and we have two handsome little boys.
I love party planning, and have what is probably considered an unhealthy addiction to reality T.V. and diet coke.
I'd love to get to know you! Shoot me an email anytime and let's take some pictures!

Tara is a skilled photographer whose work brought out the best of my family. In addition to being professional, she is also friendly, personable, and caring. She helped my young sons be comfortable and happy throughout the session. I am grateful for her beautiful work, and how she captured our family's stage of life so I can remember it forever.
Tara is an incredible photographer. My family loves her style and her work. She is professional, creative, friendly and talented. As a fellow photographer, I HIGHLY recommend her for ANY occasion. Weddings, families, newborns... anything that needs to be captured... Tara is an excellent choice!
Tara was our wedding photographer and I would highly recommend her to anyone! I was impressed with how gracefully she executed the timeline day-of, and especially with our 15 nieces and nephews! We love our bright photos and she was so easy to work with from planning to final editing.
Our session with Tara was so much fun! Even my oldest son who hates the camera, admitted he had a good time. Tara made us all feel relaxed and she took her time with us. We never felt rushed. Tara has an amazing eye. The pictures perfectly captured the personality of my family and we will treasure them forever. I can't wait for our next session!
Working with Tara is such a fun experience. There is no rush, no pressure- it is so easy and enjoyable to take pictures with her and the results are breathtaking. She is able to capture my feelings for my husband and children so beautifully and not just anyone can do that. She has given me pictures and memories of feelings which I will always have. I look forward to every session we have with her.
Tara has taken family photos for my family since our second child was born. She has done a tremendous job capturing beautiful moments, including catching candid shots, She is so patient and has fun with the kids, which makes it that much easier to get our photos done. We are always sure to get a session scheduled with her as soon as they're offered! I've never been disappointed by her work.
We absolutely love Tara and would recommend her to anyone. She is always so amazing and patient with our kids and does a great job making the photoshoot feel stress free. We have had the pleasure of working with Tara many times and have always been beyond pleased with how our photos turn out!! She is extremely talented and we are so grateful for all the moments she has captured for our family.
Tara is incredible! We have been clients of hers since the very beginning, and will be forever. She has such an incredible eye, and patience for days! There have been times when one (or both) of my children are in bad moods (not what you want on picture day!) but Tara is somehow able to turn their moods around, and capture great photos. We love every picture we have ever taken with her. She is such a wonderful talent, and we are so grateful!
We were so elated about our experience with Tara. Not only did she capture stunning photos from our wedding, but we loved the person she was behind the camera as well. She's sweet, talented, laid back, and quick on her feet. She didn't seem stressed or frazzled when she was running around capturing every memory and tradition that took place during our wedding, and that put my Type A personality at ease! We can't wait for her to photograph our next milestone, we're sticking with her for the long run!. .
Tara captures moments during sessions you had no idea even occured! When you review your photos you can't believe some of the memories you now have. She is quick, sharp, absolutley fantastic with kids and we have used her for every milestone in our family lives for the past 4 years!
