"I've just received the photographs from my daughter's first birthday party, taken by Tara. Wow! They are beautiful. I am absolutely thrilled with them. Tara is delightful to work with and my daughter really took to her. She captured everything so naturally. We'll definitely be asking Tara to come back!"


"Tara did our wedding photos. She is so warm and makes you feel so relaxed. We had an engagement shoot which helped us feel more comfortable behind the camera. The photos are absolutely beautiful . couldn't recommend enough!"


"Thank you Tara for capturing our special day in beautiful pictures that will remind us forever of how perfect it was! Professional, unobtrusive, on hand with shawls when the weather turned (oh yeah I should return them! !) and just an awesome friend too! Thanks again for getting them to us sooo quickly." 


"Tara has photographed two of my newborns, my wedding and a bump/family shoot :) Tara is truly gifted in what she does and is passionate about her work. The quality of her photography is second to none and I recommend her work to everyone looking for a photographer! I won't use anyone else for any of my family photos! Tara is friendly and welcoming and felt like part of the family at our wedding! Fabulous work!"


Well, you’ll usually find me in some embarrassingly awkward pose getting *that* shot. But even the most passionate photographers need a break!


On a rare day off, I’ll be hanging out in the sunshine book in hand or cosying up with my daughter for a rom-com marathon (and a big slice of vegan pizza) or meeting up with my son in Cambridge for a mooch and a coffee!


As much as I love my downtime, my heart beats for travel.. I LOVE travelling; for weddings, for excitement, for any type of adventure!


And with a never-ending case of wanderlust, I've been lucky enough to travel to some incredible destinations including Australia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and so many more!


My dream is to buy a campervan and hit the road to capture the world and all it has to offer - including many more beautiful weddings, playful families and smushy newborns!
