Tara was born and raised in San Jose, California. From the moment you first interact with her you will see her personality as easy going and reliable. Whether she is rigorously working, hiking in the woods or lost in her creativity, you will always see a smile on her face. It's the emotion in the image that makes the magic, and Tara strives to capture the unguarded moments when people forget they are in front of her lens. Tara is especially skilled at unobtrusively capturing all the details from the biggest moments you remember to that split second you may have overlooked.
Every day I head out with my camera, I encounter something new and different. I have photographed over 200 weddings, and although they have the same general timeline, no two weddings will ever be the same. I love meeting new people and helping to tell their story through an image.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I like to get to know the people I work with, even if we just have a brief encounter. Its a thousand percent better if a person isn't faking a smile for the camera but instead they can actually smile at the person behind the camera.

A fun fact about this photographer
I am a jill of many trades. I have worked in retail, customer service, as a nanny, in the medical field, in a restaurant, as a delivery driver... but through it all I was documenting life with photos. Photography has always been my life, my love, my passion.
