For as long as I can remember, I've always been a creator and a maker. My photography journey began over a decade ago when my parents gifted me my first camera. I went on to major in fine arts in college and while studying film photography, grew a deep appreciation for the art of photography and never turned back.

Most days you can find me enjoying the simple life right here in Dayton, Ohio. I am a huge plant enthusiast (no really I have 75+ houseplants and counting...), an avid thrift shopper, lover of all animals, and advocate for supporting small local businesses. My fiancé and I love to travel, but ultimately I consider myself a bit of a homebody, but it's honestly pretty easy to want to say home with my cat and dog all day. They're the coolest.

“Tara was amazing to work with during our maternity photo shoot. She has a great eye for lighting, location and direction. We really enjoyed our time with her during our photo shoot. Tara was also quick with turnaround both with our photos and communication. Loved working with her and creating memories of a lifetime for our family!”
