Hello Friend- I'm Tara!

and... I want to take your photo!

Let's first start with the fact that I am a Wisconsin based wedding and portrait photographer, and will travel to capture those never forget moments (and maybe for some pancakes- with some chocolate chips in the mix:) And I for real want to become your best bud and capture some memories for you to remember forever!

It all started with my grandma. She took photos of everything, and while I watched her, I took in her passion and eye for artistry in the everyday. In college, I studied photojournalism and found that drawing my interest the most was the subject of people. Capturing someone’s story or someone’s memories is a great privilege for me. The magic exists in the tiny details and in the depth of a special moment.

Some fun facts about me:
-The Golden Girls is my favorite TV show.
-I believed mermaids were real until high school.
-When I say, “just one more” during a session, I usually mean five more shots.
-I’m slightly obsessed with pancakes
-My other passion is fitness and my health


My photography approach

My Mission

More than a photograph

I get excited when you tell me that you want to go on an adventure for your session. Or when you tell me that you and your loved one have a special spot that you like to hang out at. I strive to capture those in between moments that you didn't even realize were happening... and how lucky am I to get to freeze those moments for you to cherish forever? I feel so lucky that I get tears in my eyes.

I learned early on while studying photography in college, that what inspired me the most was the photojournalistic side of photography, of capturing life as is. Minimal posing, minimal altering to a moment, just the raw and the real. That is what is the most beautiful in my eyes. 

So if you are a go with the flow parent during family sessions and say things like, "no matter what mood the kids are in, just capture us being us," or you are someone getting married and you say, "capture my day how it naturally happens, because no matter what, it's going to be the most amazing day," then I would be so HONORED to capture those moments for you!

Back

"Tara was our photographer and did an absolutely amazing job capturing our wedding. She asked questions and listened to what we specifically wanted all while keeping us on our schedule and making the entire day flawless. I cannot express how grateful I am to have had her as our photographer for this important day. Tara you killed it and these pictures are fabulous, I cannot wait to see the rest! She also responded so quickly the entire length of our engagement which made me so reassured even before the big day. I would recommend Tara to anyone!!! 11/10 for above my expectations!!!"- Katie

"Tara was our photographer for our wedding and she was so awesome to work! She is very reliable and timely at corresponding to emails and meeting up in person. On the wedding day, Tara did an outstanding job of capturing all the details, taking all the photos that I had asked her to take, and going above and beyond what was expected of her. Tara was not only my photographer that day, but also felt like she was my bridal assistant, as she helped make the day go so smoothly that I didn't have to worry about anything and could just enjoy my day. After the wedding was over, I loved her fast turn around time of getting the photos back to me. Tara is so great to work with and such an amazing person inside and out. I highly recommend Tara to anyone!" Carissa-2019
