There is nothing quite as special as allowing kids to embrace their childhood imagination and creativity. Every year i sit down with my boys and I create fun imaginative composites of my own kids WITH them.  They help me decide what character they want to be, what is included in their scenes, and then I place it all together for them to help them make their dream image come to life.  It is real life dress up and a really fun time!

Let me help your kiddos feel the magic of creativity through a beautiful portrait worth hanging on your wall.

I'm Tarah

Modern Fine Art

am so excited you're here. I started creating family memories 6 years ago.  Throughout the years I have expanded my education in oil painting and fine art photography and could not be more excited to share it with more families!

A snapshot into my life

1 / 2

My favorite thing to do is travel and create memories with my kids and family.   I take thousands of landscape photographs while we enjoy beautiful sight and explore new activities and places.  

This valuable family time is priceless to me, and i am so thankful to have a husband who embrasses this love (and who stops for me every few hours to take photographs).

We live outside when the weather is nice.  There is something so powerful about enjoying the crisp air, sunlight, and outdoors.  If we could cancel all activities and just live each weekend doing yard work, having campfires, biking on trails, and watching the kids play outside.... I would do it in a heartbeat!

Being able to live out in the country has been such a blessing, and i embrace every second I can with my kids wanting to be here with me.

My Favorite Things

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.

Outdoor Modern Fine Art Portrait


"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"

Outdoor Family Session


"My son and I had so much fun at our session last weekend! I am impressed with how dedicated Tarah is to making sure she gets to know her clients and what they hope to capture in the session. The pre and post zoom sessions are fantastic! When I received the proofs I was blown away. So many amazing moments she caught on film that will be treasured forever."

Children's Portrait Session


Absolutely loved Tarah's ability to capture our family in our first home with our first child who turned one. She blended right in with us and we almost forgot she was there, which led to some truly magical pictures! We will be using Tarah in the future! Her work is amazing!

Documentary Milestone Session


"We had such an excellent experience with Tarah and Wildwood Photography. We worked on a commercial project for our company (we are in a separate state), and she delivered all that we requested and more. Tarah is an excellent story teller, as well as a great communicator. She is very organized, has a great response time, and not once did I worry about a single thing. Our photo / video subjects had nothing but dreamy things to say about Tarah, and our project is turning out amazing. I would not hesitate to hire Wildwood Photography again."
