Hi! I'm Tara and I'm happy you found me! A little about me....I am a wife, a mother (I have an adult daughter, younger son and now a son-in-law!), a sister, a daughter, an auntie and a loyal friend. I first picked up a camera when I was a kid and photography was been a big part of my life ever since. I went to school to earn a BFA in Art History focusing on Museum Management. I worked a bit as a photographer for an interactive computer company, which involved traveling to National Parks--it was a great gig! With the birth of my daughter I moved back to my hometown and worked as the central office manager of my parent's company. I never stopped shooting. It became clear that I needed to switch careers and start my own business. From film to digital, my passion for capturing life remains the same. I love the Lord. I love my family and my friends. You can call me a bit of a nerd--I geek out over sci-fi and comic book movies (my favorites are Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and the Avengers). I adore old movies, old cars and pin-up style. Disneyland is one of my favorite places. My iPod is full of music from all genres--Dropkick Murphys to Chicago, Volbeat to Marvin Gaye. Music and movies have always been a big part of my life. I also play soccer and enjoy antiquing ("junkin'"). I collect old cameras, vintage phones and other props that catch my eye. I am a Mac and Canon girl, although my first "real" film camera was a Nikon. I still have a spot in my heart for them. Positive, friendly, professional and flexible--these are the ways I approach photography. I adore my clients and it's such a privilege photographing their kids as they grow, graduate, get married and have babies of their own (makes me feel old, but I love it!).
