 Kansas City Senior Photography

Tell me a little bit about yourself via the form on my contacts page (linked below at the end of this page).  The more I know about your senior, what you want out of photos, and what you enjoy doing in your spare time... the better I can answer your questions before you even have them!

Every session is customized, which means you will get a photo session that fits YOU!

1. Say Hello

2. Your guide

Once you reach out I will send over all the info you need to feel prepared for our session.  You can view that while studying for your exa at 2 am, or check it while waiting in line at Starbucks.  It is all easy to access right from your phone!  

This process should be easy for you, so I have streamlined the process to be quick and easy to do from anywhere.  If you still have questions throughout the process please don't hesitate to ask.  If I missed important info, I definitely want to clear it up, so just send me a quick email or text. 

We have a pre-session chat in person or virtually over zoom to discuss you and your photo requests. This helps me to really pinpoint opportunities to see you shine because if you are enjoying the session and feel confident than your photos will how it!

 So if your fun activity is hiking, dancing, playing soccer, hangin out at the local coffee shop, or just being fabulous in general…. we will incorporate it into your session.  

3. ask me Anything

Taking a good photo consists of many things like lighting, placement, posing, editing, and framing the image. The real truth behind a beautiful photo though is in the emotion. A truly beautiful photo makes you feel intertwined and bonded with it.  If we create your session based on an activity that represents your unique personality and interests then we also get that real joy captured in. a setting that makes you feel comfortable! 

You job during the session is simply to  have fun. Just be yourselves and pretend like we are scheduling a time to hang out and be silly and not a time for photos.  I promise no matter how silly or uncomfortable you may feel... I will be the one that people are giving weird looks to, so there is no pressure on your end!  

4. let's shoot!

Every sessions includes a pre-session call and a digital online proofing gallery. What that means for you is I shoot photos with your needs in mind. If you want an album I will shoot detail shots, if you want wall art I will take more long shots or portrait work, if you want a fun graduation card designed... I've got you covered!

After your session, we will have a zoom call to review your proofing gallery.  View your images before you buy!  Let me help you plan, order, and purchase in a simplified way. I can help you order EXACTLY what you need; with no extra money wasted on images you don't or won't use. We can brainstorm together about what products you actually want.

The details
Say Hello


Tarah is the pinnacle of photojournalist AND lifestyle photography! She has this eye for light and color that create true art. We moved away from KC two years ago and we go back each year because no one else can get photos that I want hung all over my home and on my Christmas card. Her edits are always so tasteful and lovely. If you’re looking for stuffy, posed photos, Wildwood is not for you. But if you want shots of your family being authentically themselves, having fun, laughing and loving life, there is no one better.



"I recently moved to KC from LA, and am SO thankful I found Wildwood Photography!! I'm not comfortable in front of the camera, and Tarah made myself and my entire family feel so comfortable, have a ton of fun, and get INCREDIBLE shots!! I asked her to do some professional creative shots for my business (I'm a singer) as well as family shots, and she was able to create such gorgeous shots! I'm truly blown away! Best photographer in KC, hands down"
