At the same time, I understand how stressful it can be to get in front of a camera. That's why I do everything in my power to make you feel relaxed, looked after, and prepared for your shoot. I provide outfit and location suggestions, patiently guide you through poses, and tell you all the reasons I think you look absolutely wonderful. I'll even fix that piece of hair you warned me about.
When it comes to photographing kiddos, I come equipped with extra warmth, patience and silly hats. I promise to never make you or your child feel judged or rushed, even when we're low on time. In my years of photographing kids, I've learned the easiest way to capture real smiles and giggles is to make them feel like the shoot is no big deal. We're just hanging at the park, eating snacks and taking pictures. You'd be surprised how many delicious photos I can get without them realizing it's a photoshoot.
My favorite compliment is when someone walks away from a shoot and tells me that was so much easier than they expected. My other favorite compliment is when I show someone a preview on the back of my camera and they say, "Wait. I love that picture of myself!"
I love photographing people because I want to help them see themselves the way their loved ones see them.
"I thought taking family photos would be like wrangling cats but Taryn just set the most lovely, calming tone. It was truly such a pleasure! Her talent is just incredible and her photos are hanging all over my house. From one Taryn to another, thank you times a thousand!" - Taryn G.
