My mother became a documentary film make

as I was transforming into a terrible teenager.

With a brave heart, she uprooted my brother

and me from the States and moved our little family

to Kenya when I was 14.  It was on the long safaris

my mother brought us along on, in the middle

of no man's land, that my mother threw a camera at me and said, "go photograph".

Running with tribal children, I started capturing

their wild beautiful spirits with my camera and thus began my obsession with photography. 

Today I live in Aspen, Colorado and continue my

passion with portraiture. I

 freeze unique moments in a person's world: tears, laughter, true emotion, and it is in these moments that I capture

memories that will last a lifetime.

I look forward to working with you and your family.

Serving the Roaring Fork Valley, Colorado.

"Tara photographed our wedding this September and we are so thankful to have found her! She is much more than a photographer; she is an incredible woman with the most beautiful soul. She made me feel stunning at every moment throughout our day. My husband was anything but comfortable in front of the camera, but Tara made him feel at ease. A wedding day is of course full of happiness, but there are moments of chaos and stress. Tara helped to settle my worries and gave me the guidance to relax and enjoy the day. From the moment we first met her, I knew I wouldn’t have to search for a photographer anymore. I look forward to capturing more wonderful milestones & memories with her behind the camera"

"We looked at the work of several wedding photographers and are so happy that we chose to go with Tara. She was wonderful to work with, immediately put us at ease, and gave us one less thing to worry about! She was thoughtful and creative, and we felt that she really personalized her work for us. She captured the little details that we will always cherish. Through Tara’s beautiful photos, we will forever remember the warmth, love, and fun that we had on our special day!"

Tara did an incredible job capturing our beautiful wedding at the Snowmass Club. She got every shot we wanted with unparalleled creativity and professionalism. She never got in the way of our ceremony or the other events -- to the contrary, she made them come to life in the images of our special day that we will have forever.

Tara went out of her way to ensure that our wedding pictures would come out as beautiful as we could of imagined.  Her professional eye for detail, matched with her local knowledge of the natural beauty of Aspen, resulted in absolutely breath taking photographs.  My wife and I will spend a lifetime together reminiscing of our wedding day as told through Tara's artistic style.
