"Tamara has been photographing our family for literal years now. She was present, camera in hand, for the birth of our daughter. She’s made every interaction with us comfortable and memorable. Even with an infant and then a toddler her expertise, patience, and artistic vision has moved each session along quickly while never sacrificing quality. My home is covered in photos that Tamara has taken and we get SO many compliments from friends and family on how absolutely gorgeous our portraits are. I don’t plan on ever using another photographer to capture our families’ lives."

"I did my newborn pictures with Tamara. They are perfect. She is an artist and her work is meticulous, classy, and super high quality. She came to our home. She brought all the props, she shared ideas and listened to ours. She was easy to work with, great communication, and the end result was better than I had hoped. We will cherish these pictures always. Thank you again!!!"
