Finally, child-lead photo sessions that are meaningful.  not a chore.



“photography is about capturing souls, not smiles.”

Let's tailor your experience


      see you overwhelmed with forcing a smile, freezing in a pose, and stressing over what to wear. In a world overtaken by perfect social media families, I understand how it feels. I have been frustrated by these same things trying to get a posed picture of my three crazy boys who want nothing to do with the camera.

So let this Kansas City photographer help you to just cut that out of the equation! We will play games, explore, and just be silly while also getting some great shots. Let me turn family photos from "ugh" to "Yes! let's go to Wildwood Ranch!" You can get memories AND fun!

The Outdoor Experience is shot at Wildwood Ranch, 3 miles southeast of Kill Creek Park in Olathe.    

How to guarantee fun...

Child led at it's finest...

"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. I highly recommend Tarah, she is wonderful."

 THE Breakdown

After your session, we will have a zoom call to review your proofing gallery. Make your to-do list smaller! Let me help you plan, order, and purchase in a simplified way.
