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.


With all the rain in the forecast I thought it wouldn’t hurt to have a little sunshine on the blog. I photographed this beautiful wedding last month and it was a blast. Hands down one of the happiest brides I’ve ever had. She could not stop smiling or giggling the entire day. So much love between these 2. It was calling for 90-100% chance of rain all week for this wedding day and on the day of, it was absolutely gorgeous. The clouds were crazy. It was a perfect day. Congratulations again Callie and Tim!!! Some favorites from their day and of course too many for just 1 blog… so see PART 1 HERE!!

With the non stop flooding and tornado alerts going off on our phones here lately I looked at my calendar and realized it’s actually been almost 3 entire months since I wasn’t constantly having to reschedule sessions due to all this crazy weather. I’ve lost count of the number of times our ponds have overflowed and we are going on twice that our road has been washed out and we almost weren’t able to get back home OR leave the house. I feel like I got shorted this year on a pretty spring since I wasn’t able to shoot even HALF Of what I had scheduled on the original dates. :( Took these a few months back before all the craziness. I think I’m ready for Summer now! A few favorites of my sweet babies. I love them so!

In other news, I had planned on getting caught up last week on quite a bit.. but then the stomach bug hit our house and I lost count of the number of hours I’ve spent in my inbox and trying to reschedule sessions.. so eventually I’ll be able to catch up on everything.. maybe. Haha.
