  1. Nice shots Tara. Are you going to share what you did with the color? Please? It almost looks like a midnight sepia the way the jeans are so saturated. Nice effect. carolyn

  2. WOW!!! I love them. Little blondie looks so much like her daddy. :) I love the last one, so hilarious. The ones of the older girls are just to die for. Beautiful family, beautiful photos. Beautiful photographer. :)

  3. My gosh…these pictures are totally awesome! Great colors, cute cute family :) Tara you did a great job-your pick of scenery is stupendous! What caught my eye was of course, the 3girls then the boy…LOL Sweet family!

  4. Dear JD (my husband)
    hey dude, i gotta plan. lets jet off to ca to meet tara whitney. yes – not easy with 3 little boys and work and everything….but hoooonneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey, she takes these amazing pictures.
    i wanna be the pretty/cool/well lit family on the beach. i wanna remember this time in our lives as attractive people. come on – whadda ya say? the delta miles ain’t gonna keep forever…..
    (actually – i would just normally sign it kelli, or k…the pictures are amazing:)

  5. Love the pics . . . as several have mentioned, that one of #4 crying while everyone’s walking just cracks me up. I also love the one of same said kid on dad’s shoulders where you just see his legs and hands. I love your photography because you get it that you don’t have to have them all lined up and neatly seated and all in a row. . . you just have such great prospective!

    What a beautiful family. . . and what beautiful pictures. I’d be wanting copies of all of them if I were them.

    Are all the families you shoot as fun as it looks or do you just have a way of putting people at ease? whatever it is, it keeps me coming back each week to see what new, cool thing you’ve captured. I too would love to know how you got the cool color, love it!!!

  7. I was trying to figure out what the heck you did with the color there too…must be magic. As always, these are such fantastic photos. Did I already mention that you could be making a gazillion dollars a year doing this? : )

  8. oh tara. do you know that i actually swoon when i look at your photos? and that i check your blog every day? and when you do have a new album i have to look at every single photo? and i look at your “photo a day” thing too because your work is just so freakin’ awesome? hope you are feeling all the love that’s been sent your way!

    Having just had photos done by Tara, I can tell you that she’s just that good. :-) You get relaxed around her and she has this mischievous grin that makes you keep going and you can’t help but be yourself and have a blast. Which just creates great photography.
