look, your tongue is blue!


This is a little game I often play where I line everyone up and ask the kiddos to run to me one by one. I normally get at least one great shot but this time I happily got three.


The Baltgalvis family was in SoCal on vacation. We tooled around Huntington Beach and had a great time. For anyone who follows me on twitter, you may remember an update awhile back where I said Sometimes during a shoot I scheme about how to take the baby home with me. Like tonight. Jen & Badi. I’ll get him back to you I promise. :)’

This was the shoot.

  2. kea-Those photos kind of happened like that-the walls are peach and the day was just a warm light kind of day. I adjusted colors to my liking, but didn’t use an action.

    abigail-you make me laugh. thank you.

  3. Tara, I love how you capture something that I think I know so well (HB) and make me see it in a completely new way. Now I have to hunt down more of those spots. :) Love how you capture the little intimate family interactions, too. Thank you so much for sharing!

  4. Tara I have been watching your work for 3 years now and you NEVER seize to amaze me..in my opinion you are the best photographer I have seen in my short time of taking photos..you are such an inspiration to myself and obviously many others.

    your children are beautiful
    your marriage(from what I see)is beautiful
