AboutTara Swain

Hi, I'm Tara! I love bright colors, a vintage, eclectic feel and whimsical concepts. My passion is child photography. I've been happily married since 2005 and we are blessed with a beautiful little girl, Briley Grace "Bear," and a "chubbalicious" little boy, Beau Isaac "Beau boy," who you will often read about on the blog.


I had these sweet girls in the studio several weeks ago for a special mommy/daughter session as a surprise for Sloane’s daddy’s birthday! Loved Sara’s dress and everything about their sparkly, girly session together. :) I think every mom needs to do a session with her little girl. :) So many favorites from their shoot!!

Who would of thought.. 2 SEPARATE snow days in 1 week. We didn’t get much of anything on Wednesday (TODAY was a different story.. it’s been coming down all day!!) but I really wanted to do some pictures of Bear in the snow and some of our best friends got a nice little snow at their house across town! So I did a quick little session and I got to use one of my new pair of wings and she got to wear one of her new dresses she’s been begging to wear.. (with a little added extra layer of sleeves.) ;) We even pulled Beau boy out for a millisecond to get a couple of them together.. AND I also got to take the same photo of Beau boy that I did of Briley. She was only about 6 weeks old for her first snow but my mom had bought her a little pink snow suit before she was born so B literally held her out under the snow flakes for all of 5 seconds and I snapped one real fast. Hahaha. We recreated it when she had just turned 1, our first snow after we moved into the new house. (I’ll post those at the end.)

Some favorites from our little snow fairy shoot. :D
