I'm Tara, wife to my best friend and mother to the three coolest little humans I have ever known. I laugh A LOT- it is a beast that will never be tamed! You will see! I am addicted to dance fitness but I am also addicted to Chick-fil-A which is why I will always be overweight! HA! I am attracted to genuine and heartfelt people! Random acts of kindness make my heart sing! I am a habitual over-thinker and over-analyzer. I also need a rehab program for the overuse of exclamation points and smiley faces on social media!!

MY PHOTOGRAPHY

As a wife and mother to three amazing little boys, pictures have become such an important source of documenting our personal history, I have found that my favorite images of our own family were not the ones of everyone looking at and smiling for the camera. They were the images that captured the personality and the “realness” of my boys at any given age- for better or for worse. I can see an image and it takes me back to that time and I remember how they were in that exact moment- not just how they “looked” but who they were, how they sounded, and how they made me feel! - These are the same images that I LOVE the most when I am shooting for other people too! The images where I feel like I got an inside ticket to a particular fleeting stage in a child’s life, the most magical young love stage for a bride and groom, or the moment when a parent’s heart feels like it has grown exponentially with the arrival of a new baby! When I come to the end of my days, I want to look at pictures and remember how I felt about all of my loved ones, not just what they looked like!
