Hi There! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Tara, a lifestyle family and wedding photographer based out of
Bellingham, WA. I first moved to Bellingham in 1997 to attend WWU and was told at that time (by numerous people!) that I would never leave. I did live in the Seattle area for many years after graduating, but somehow found my way back up when I started my family. So, I guess they were right. I did find my way back and I absolutely love living my life in this area with my husband and two boys.
My journey in photography began in 2013. With two young boys at home and a full time job in corporate America, I craved more...more time to connect, more time to create and more time to share meaningful stories. I bought my first camera and studied light and shadows for hours on end. My heart has been in my lense ever since!
I love photography because I love people. My style is candid, real, relaxed, and fun. I take a journalistic approach to my work, which means I leave room for life to happen between the posed pictures. I want your photos to capture your emotion and tell a story.
I'd love to create images to reflect the love and joy you share.
