Your Kansas City Fine Art  Photography

Imagine the magic of a birthday party or group event transformed into an empowering portrait session filled with laughter, creativity, and the joy of uplifting one another. I offer a unique experience where girls and boys can come together to celebrate their individuality while fostering a sense of camaraderie and empowerment. Whether it's a themed birthday bash or a group gathering of friends, these group portrait sessions are designed to ignite imaginations and create lasting memories. Choose from a selection of couture gowns for a touch of glamour or encourage self-expression by arriving in home-bought costumes that reflect each party goer's unique personality.

Through positive guided social interactions, we inspire the kids to support and uplift one another, fostering a sense of confidence and camaraderie that extends far beyond the photo session. It's not just about capturing beautiful images; it's about creating a space where imagination thrives, friendships flourish, and every girl feels empowered to shine her brightest. Let's embark on this magical journey together and celebrate the beauty of sisterhood, creativity, and joyous self-expression.

We are all just here to boost each other up.  This opportunity will not only be a BLAST for your child/tween/teen, but it also is a great opportunity to hang out with other girls who support girls while rocking some custom one of a kind couture dresses.    Now is the time for them to make those friendship bracelets and share them.  Wear the dress, have the fun, & live in the moment! 

Boost your tween's self esteem in this one of a kind group event. 


Specific Location details can be arranged, or at your own home too.

My work goes beyond simply taking pictures; it's about fostering a sense of empowerment, especially among our youth. In a world where societal pressures and expectations can sometimes weigh heavily, it's crucial for girls to feel supported, uplifted, and empowered by one another.  Let your kids dream up an live their own fairytale alongside their peers.  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. 

Through my photography sessions, I aim to create a safe and nurturing environment where your kids can express themselves freely, embrace their uniqueness, and celebrate their individuality. Whether it's through a shared laugh, a supportive gesture, or a genuine connection, I encourage everyone to lift each other up, to celebrate each other's successes, and to stand together as allies and friends.

By capturing these moments of empowerment and camaraderie, I hope to inspire not only your kids themselves but also you, dear parents, to continue nurturing and supporting the incredible journey of your child or teen. Together, we can foster a generation of strong, confident, and empowered young women & men who know the value of lifting each other up!

Creating a group session allows for social empowerment, encouragement, and kind friendships.


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 the type of event you are looking to create 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. What to expect at the event

Next we will have your group 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.  Before your session we will talk about event details, gown rentals, important info to put on party invitations, and timing questions.  This leaves for a lot less confusion.   

Than you simply show up(or open your door 30 minutes before your party so i can set up at your home), get ready for whatever attire we previously discussed, and we take some child-led/ laid back posed shots.  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 group 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


Hattie and I had the ultimate girls’ weekend in Kansas City; we got to spend it with some jaw-dropping Taylor Swift-inspired dresses, the absolute sweetest and uber-talented photographer, a phenomenal group of amazing mamas, and the most beautiful, sassy, confident young ladies. It TRULY was the best day, and it will forever be one of my most favorite memories with Hattie. So very thankful for this opportunity.

Couture Tween Event


"Tarah truly makes dreams come true. My daughters audibly gasped upon seeing their photos from the Taylor Swift inspired photo shoot and my youngest said, “Mom, I look so fierce!” The value of building up girls by letting them see their true, amazing selves cannot be underemphasized. Thank you so much, Tarah for the beautiful artwork and priceless memories."

COuture Session

Jessica, Lizzy & Stella

"What a dream for my daughter to get to play "dress-up" in one of Tarah's beautiful dresses!  Tarah is amazing at setting up the perfect shot while keeping everyone relaxed and comfortable. Truly a cherished experience and she has also taken newborn photos for our family - this girl can do everything! Book with Wildwood, you won't be disappointed." 

Children's Portrait Session

Lisa & Milla

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.

In-home 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"
