Introduction: I definitely know that my clients are the heart of the company. At Photography by TLC, I ensure customer satisfaction. I truly love what I do, and it shows in my interactions and my work. Each photo session is important and a treasured experience. I want my clients to treasure their photos forever. I enjoy working with people and capturing moments that you treasure. I love when clients see their photos and say they have no idea how they are going to select just one because there are so many that they love. When photographing weddings, I love hearing how I captured a moment that touched my clients heart, especially with something they didn't even see themselves. I can't say how many times I've heard from the bride and groom that they did not even see certain decorations or people, and they are so thankful that I photographed something they would have otherwise missed completely.

Tara was amazing!! She showed up early to find the perfect spots for our engagement photos, created a photo package to help us to within our budget and was open to questions and concerns regarding the lack of venue for our wedding. I'm so excited to work with her on our wedding I know the pictures will come out beautiful.

We hired Tara for our Maternity Photoshoot on Aug 4th, 2017. She was so prompt in her responses. She called us prior to the photoshoot and gave us instructions and ideas about what we could wear and props. The day of the photoshoot she arrived before us and made sure she found a wonderful spot to take our pictures. She is so friendly and patient. She gives you enough time, listens to your ideas and makes your dream come true. The link to the pictures was sent to us within no time and they have all come out wonderful. I highly receommend Tara and her work.

Tara is not only a very talented photographer, but she is courteous and is willing to go the extra mile to get the perfect shot! Myself being a photographer I understand the challenges faced when dealing with clients (especially myself. Even when getting portraits done I am a stickler for details which she handled beautifully ), and I must say Tara not only handles every part of her job professionally, but with a grace rarely seen these days in such a demanding field of work. Myself being not personally a fan of "photoshopped" images can say that her touchup work is subtle, and as with all artists can use just a tiny bit more. That being said, I highly recommend Tara and TLC photography to anyone looking to capture those special moments in a way very few can.

Tara is an amazing photographer! She is extremely professional. Tara has taken my engagement photos, wedding photos, and she recently just took photos for my my mothers 70th birthday party. She does amazing skin and gives you the disc with all of your photos!

Working with Tara was a fantastic experience. Tara is an excellent photographer. She is very professional and fun to work with. We had Tara take our family photos. She took her time with us and had great ideas for awesome pictures. Her bubbly personality, smile and laugh made us all very comfortable. She was able to get all of us smiling and laughing in all the pictures. (and that's not an easy chore) :) We enjoyed our time with Tara and can't wait to work with her again in the future. I have referred Tara to friends and family. She's the best!


  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The bottom line price for a session is $250 (although mini sessions can be an option in some situations.) As a fully mobile photographer with a fully mobile studio, I travel to your home or a location of your choice. You will be able to view, share and download all your images in a password protected online gallery where you can also order prints.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    There are always new advancements in any field. I am constantly educating myself on new technology and techniques to better benefit myself and my clients.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    This line of work chose me! As long as I can remember, I have carried a camera with me. I was fortunate to find a wedding photographer that took me under her wing and showed me the ropes and showed me my dreams were right in front of me. I love capturing moments that would have been lost in time and making them last forever.
