Kansas City Children's Photographer

Your kansas City Magical Photography

Let your kids dream up an live their own fairytale.  These magical composite sessions allow your kids to see themselves as the strong characters they love.  What I love about fine art images is the chance to take the beauty and reality of a shot and surround it with the whimsy and soul of imagination to create something that may as well be made of dreams. 

The joy I find in hand-editing each unique portrait into a piece that represents who the subject is and looks stunning displayed in their home is remarkable. Let’s display your child’s magic with a dream-brought-to-life fine art print that will take your breath away for years to come!

Your kids are only little once.  Let's help them embrace and enjoy this fun magical time and foster their imagination.


Simply fill out the form below.  You will receive some more info from me via email that describes the process in more detail, but here is a little glimpse of what to expect once your session is booked.

First you will reserve a place in my calendar to chat via zoom about what art you love, what you currently have around your home, and what you hope to get out of our session.  This is also the time where we can figure out dress rentals, locations, props, and all the details.  

1. Say Hello

2. Composite Session

Next we will have your photo session.  If you choose to get makeup and hair done, GREAT(it isn't required but definitely helps to have your hair fancy)! I have a list of some great local business owners who provide awesome services, you can schedule that prior to our session time. 

Than you simply show up, get ready in whatever attire we previously discussed, and we take some child-led/ laid back posed shots.   These sessions allow for a lot of between poses down time and flexibility, so that just means we have more time to get comfortable so you are natural loving our time together.  From ninja moves to Encanto dance parties, whatever will help you or your child relax can be incorporated into our time together.  

After your session you will get a link to view your proofs.  These are not the final images, and will just be a way for us to look through which poses you love, and which photos you want to use for you final products.

You will get an online gallery where you can mark your favorites, or if you would rather go through them together we can meet up in person or over zoom to pick them too.

3. Proofs

Once you picked the proofs that you love, we will sit down and chat about what you want in your home.  I can either come to your home and see your space in real life, or we can chat via zoom. 

You will be able to see a variety of product layouts and choose exactly the right piece for your home.  Once we decide what products to order for your home I start creating your custom one of a kind heirloom art!

Leave the measuring and designing to me, and take things OFF your to-do list.

4. Post session ordering!

Than once your custom pieces are created, I get them sent to me.  This is so I can look over every detail and make sure your piece is EXACTLY how it should be. 

Once I approve your product you get them hand delivered right to your doorstep.  Each custom product you order includes a digital social sharing file for you to also have.

The details
Say Hello


"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."

Commercial branding Session

Lucent Light Shop

"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


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.
