What even is a photo session without this? What is a relationship without this?! If you're not having fun you're seriously not living!
When you attend your session with me please come in anticipation of this! Do you want to receive your images back looking like the Lifetouch poses you received in 5th grade? Me either! To avoid this let's shake it up! Let's laugh & joke and get to know each other, for real!
Disclaimer: If you like Lifetouch, that's cool! You just won't be receiving it with me!
Whether you're working with me for your engagement shoot, wedding day, or your family photos I WILL be getting shots of those details! You know, the things you spent so much time to create & get just right even though your fiance / husband simply didn't understand.
Remember that necklace your mother gave you on your wedding day? Or the penny your aunt told you to wear in your shoe to bring you a financially healthy marriage? Yeah... I want to see all of that & capture it for you!
Unless that is... you want to forget some of the BEST pieces of your day?
I want you to know that I take your photos seriously. I am beyond honored that you have chosen me to document your day & your family.
I know that photography is one of the most important gifts we give ourselves. It's the only thing that allows us to replay a moment over & over & over. It's a real-life time machine, in my opinion.
Because of that, I will walk you through step-by-step and provide you with tips, tools & laughs to make your photos the best ever!
When we are finished, you're not losing me! You're gaining a new genuine friend! I care about you. I want to hear how your kids' first day of school was and the new recipe you tried out this week.
If you don't like friends... well... that's too bad.
Compliment and coordinate but don’t get too matchy.
Don't be afraid to dress up! These photos will be gracing the walls of your home, your family's home, your social media profile and Christmas cards. Why not take the opportunity to show up in your best! Accessorize, bring a couple of layers or outfit changes just in case! Always remember to bring a backup outfit for those little ones!
Family session: Bring “clean finger” snacks and water for the kiddos & a favorite toy for a little extra persuasion!
If you're engaged bring your ring! I also recommend a floral bouquet.
On your wedding day it's all about those details! Your shoes, jewelry, sentimental family heirlooms, stationary, loose flowers from the florist, etc. The more the merrier when it comes to details! It's always helpful to box them up separately so no one has to look and gather them on the day of your wedding.
I am more than happy to make a few suggestions for a great location for your photos- just tell me your vibe (water, field, architectural) and we will work together to find the perfect spot!
Want to get away?! Me too!! Inquire about pricing for adventure shoots!

Tara is a wonderful photographer! We were in search of a photographer since my cousin was unable to do our wedding photos. When Richard and I met with her, we left feeling so excited to have found her. She even sparked joy in my husband because her little boys shared his obsession with LEGOS. She did a wonderful job on our wedding day and I didn’t feel stressed at all! I love all the photographs she took! I would definitely recommend Tara and I know my husband would too! She was such a blessing to us.
She was such a blessing to us.
I did my maternity photos with Tara and it was such a great experience. She is SO SWEET! She took the time to discuss places and outfits with me and was flexible with us as the weather was not cooperating. She’s just an awesome beautiful person and photographer. My photos turned out BEAUTIFUL and I will forever cherish them. I can't wait for the baby to come so we can do newborn pics!

From the moment we met her at the San Antonio Wedding Fair, I knew I wanted her to be a part of our special day. Her positive, professional and friendly attitude made us feel welcomed and loved right from the start. After talking with her and sharing our vision, it was the greatest feeling knowing she was so interested in helping us create and capture those moments. Tara is responsive, accommodating to our preferences and a talented photographer. Our engagement session was amazing and the way she made us feel is indescribable. Our pictures didn't look posed and she made them feel so natural. You can really tell from her photographs that she truly cares about her clients. We are counting down the days to get to work with her again on our wedding day and are so blessed to have made such a great friend like Tara to share special moments with.
Tara was one of the greatest additions to our wedding vendor team!
Tara is amazing. From our first meeting to delivery my experience working with her was wonderful! Day of- her second was so nice! They both knew exactly what to do and everything ran seamlessly. They got the job done without being pushy. They were both very personable! Even my (sometimes) grumpy Dad loved them! The photos were absolutely beautiful.

Tara made everything so easy and comfortable. She even met us at one of our favorite family spots. She had already scouted the area to be familiar with it. When we arrived I felt at ease immediately. She was so awesome with our 9 year old daughter which resulted in some amazing photos of her! We are so happy with our family pictures taken by Tara!! We will use her again for sure!!! Her price and product can’t be beat! She will go above and beyond to capture moments you will cherish forever!
When we arrived I felt at ease immediately.
