Hi! I'm Tara Carman.

I've been photographing families in Northeast Ohio since 2009.

I have two children - a boy and a girl. I love them fiercely and find their differences and similarities endlessly fascinating. My husband is a science teacher, and we've been married for almost 15 years. I want my family photos to show my kids how much they are loved every single day. It's truly my joy to be able to create images for other families for this same reason. 

I love working with people who laugh so hard they cry, who love to hug and snuggle, and who are able to crack up when their two year old takes a face-plant into the mud puddle. I delight in documenting your happiness and affection.

I love

npr. vibrant color. live music.girl power. not wearing socks. silence. dimples. zinnias. the smell of a dewy morning in the forest. 90s grunge music. binge reading sci-fi and fantasy series'. funny cat videos. buying flowers at the farmer's market.
