why my sessions are different

"Enjoy the luxury of time with your family."

"Enjoy the luxury of time with your family."

KC photography here at Wildwood Ranch is about capturing souls, not smiles. There are no forced smiles, frustration trying to get the "perfect" shot or portrait. Every smile is real and from joy, laughter, or silliness. The photo session is more about enjoying the luxury of time with your family. Best of all, you don't HAVE to go to a studio.

My name is Tarah. I am the owner of Wildwood Photography. I have a passion for photography, especially lifestyle photography and documentary-style photography. Lifestyle photography is not your average photo session. KC photography here at Wildwood Ranch is about capturing souls, not smiles.  

Unlike most other Kansas City photographers, Olathe Photographers, and Overland Park photographers, I have a little slice of heaven to use as the backdrop for capturing special moments and feelings in an authentic setting. I have 40 acres of property with large trees, ponds, timber, and a walking trail that leads to a creek with a bridge. This is an ideal location for families that crave adventure and love the outdoors. Children may get wild hair and dirty faces while I capture moments that you don't even realize are happening. These pictures are a perfect way to conserve moments of emotion and laughter that will last for years to come!

"I found a love of photography after becoming a mother."

One thing I acknowledge is the days are long but the years are short. We have so many amazing moments in our life that just flash by. Lack of sleep is a real thing and I would have forgotten some great snuggles if they were not captured in a photo. I truly believe that photos keep memories alive. They have an amazing way of inspiring emotions just by one single glance.

We always enjoy our photo sessions with Tarah. She’s very kind and laid back and easily captures each of my kids natural smiles and laughs. We have 3 young kids and she has a way of moving quickly in order to capture the necessary pictures (before anyone melts!) but never makes us feel rushed or anxious.

"You get to just be yourselves and have fun and she captures every perfect moment and makes them into beautiful photos! You won't be able to decide which ones are best because they are all SO GOOD! We look forward to working with her year after year."

-Halee M.

"It's like stepping into Midsummer Night's Dream. I know that sounds exaggerated, but it's not. There were deer running through the fields and we had the most perfect fall sunset. My family and I are generally never smiling at the same time and often have goofy expressions, Tarah got MULTIPLE good shots of all 4 of us. And the pictures of my kids together were my absolute favorite. I'm incredibly happy with them."

-Amy M.

"I needed branded photos for my social media.  She captured the feel and vibes I had put on my mood board. And now I post with more confidence for my business and projects."  

-Lindsey P.
