About Tara

Hello & Welcome!

Hi, I'm Tara, and I'm so honored you're here and considering me as your photographer! I'm a natural light photographer, my style is a beautiful blend of sun-kissed digital and film photography to produce romantic, timeless and organic portraits for those who love the great outdoors. I am located in Charlotte, NC and originally from Orlando, FL. I shoot and happily travel throughout the entire southeast, FL, GA, SC, & NC. My passion is preserving milestone moments. xoxo

Wife, Fur Mama, Photographer, and…

I enjoy spending time with friends, family, my husband and our furry little love child. We have a chocolate colored Chihuahua named Lucy that brings us so much happiness. I love being outside either kayaking, hiking or mountain biking. I also love to travel. My husband and I typically travel to places with a lot of outdoor activities, nature, tasty food options and local culture. We recently purchased a travel trailer to take to the mountains and beach among other adventures. We absolutely love it! In contrast, I also like to stay home, work on the yard, gardening, and various home improvements, decorate the house (especially for Halloween & Christmas), watch movies, cook and relax with a margarita in hand! 

My husband and I have been married for 7 amazing years that have flown by and we've been together a total of 14 years. We met when I was 20, he was 21 and we've been growing together ever since. Aside from being obsessed with photography, I also love watercolor painting and making floral arrangements. Home Goods, World Market and Ulta are among my favorite stores (but there's many more ha!) Fall is my favorite season (whose isn't?) Halloween and Christmas are my favorite times of the year. I am a southern girl and I grew up on a farm. I graduated from UCF. I love meeting new people and making new friends, it's one of my favorite aspects of being a photographer. I'm a huge proponent of kindness & hugs! xoxo

My Style My style is a beautiful blend of organic moments combined with guidance to create flattering portraits. I provide actions for my clients to do and say to one another, as a result real moments of love and laughter shine through. My style is bright, cheerful and happily romantic. Is it weird and awkward at first? Of course it is, but we will quickly break the ice and before you know if, you'll be a pro saying, "That wasn't so bad after all!" I like to have fun with my clients and that's just what we'll do.
The Experience Are you up for an adventure? Do you love the great outdoors? Are you silly & awkward? Are you sweet & romantic? Do you love to laugh till it hurts? Do you use a lot of smiley faces in your emails/texts? Is looking natural in portraits important but you still need guidance? Is having good light important to you? Do you embrace first looks on wedding days? Do you love your fur babies & want to include them? If you said yes to any or all of these then we're definitely a good fit!

I’m excited to hear from you!
