You might not initially think of Charleston Family Photographer Sessions as the highlight of family time, and I completely understand that sentiment.

Choosing to spend an afternoon with me, making the effort to coordinate outfits and coax smiles from the little ones, truly shows your deep love and desire to capture your family just as they are in this moment. It's a beautiful act of love, one that doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated, especially by your kids, even if they can't quite express it yet.

You deserve a photo session that feels less like a task and more like a joyous occasion, where the focus is on the genuine connections and the little moments of togetherness. Imagine stepping into a space where everything is ready for you – from a selection of outfits that make everyone look their best without the fuss, to professional hair and makeup that makes you feel pampered and at ease. Think of an experience filled with laughter, where snacks are on hand, games that spark genuine smiles are played, and where every so-called meltdown is just another opportunity for a memorable shot.

Say goodbye to the days of worrying about stiff poses and forced smiles in a studio setting. With me, it's all about creating a relaxed and heartfelt session that you'll look back on fondly – I promise you, it'll be the most enjoyable family photography experience you've ever had.

Want to include your beloved pets, or capture a tender nursing moment, or even end with a fun cake smash? Whatever your vision, no matter how detailed or simple, we'll work together to bring it to life. Your session can be anything you dream it to be.

Here in Charleston, family photography is about celebrating your story in a way that feels authentic, joyful, and utterly unforgettable.

There are no details of the experience that she overlooks. The process from start to finish was stress free and seamless in every way!

"in one word,


Tara was flexible and made the whole experience seamless. From organizing my hair, makeup and wardrobe for myself and my son was a life saver!

"so patient and detailed oriented"


"All of the pictures turned out so perfect. Tara helped with all of the little things one might worry about when getting pictures done and made the whole process so easy and comfortable! I would hire her 10 times over."

The Experience

Design + ORdering Appointment

Session Day


Finished Artwork

Once your session is reserved, we'll meet for your planning appointment where I'll style you and your children from the client wardrobe and we'll discuss location and artwork preferences.

My hair and makeup artists will either come right to your home or to the studio and get you all glammed up! Then we'll have a relaxed and fun session together where you can focus on loving your children and I focus on capturing your connection.

We'll meet again to select the perfect images and artwork to display in your home. I will show you the mocked up custom gallery wall designs I've made for your home and we'll choose your images for your album. You'll place your order at this meeting. 

About 10 weeks later, your beautiful artwork will be ready to pick up and enjoy in your home!

2-3 weeks after your session, we'll meet either back at my studio or virtually for your Viewing and Ordering appointment. This is when you will get to see all of the beautiful portraits we created together and decide how you’d like to enjoy them for years to come in the form of heirloom artwork such as custom frames, matted prints and/or albums.
