About Me

Pinkstar Photography and me

My name is Tara, I am a mother of 3 fabulous children and a forever fiancé to one wonderful man.  I’m an avid reader and love learning and teaching.  I have a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in sociology.  It was while in university, I discovered my intent interest on people and their relationships.  I also swayed over to anthropology and art history before having my first child.  I spent many years as a taxi and DATS driver while in university.  I also dabbled in the nursing field before going back to school to study Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.  I  had my last baby and was then able to bring a favourite hobby forward to a career with the love and support of my family.   When I shot my first wedding, I was in love.  I have been growing and developing and living happily with my chosen career and all the opportunities that have come my way.  In my first year, I was published in a wedding magazine and continue to bring forth true emotion in all of life’s blessed moment’s.I still continue my lust for education and learning by pouring over many technical books and hands on workshops.  I attend, and participate in at least 3 a year.  I have been fortunate to study newborns under the stupendously talented girls at The Newborn Experience.  I spent months with the illustrious Hope Walls, of Picture Love Photography.  Lighting classes with lightrein, and wedding and family workshops with Mrs Julie Paisley, of Julie Paisley Photography.  And mastered the art of  shooting Balls out with the infamous team at Two Mann Studios.   The completely amazing  Wedding summit and the Epiphene wedding workshop.   I know I am forgetting some, please forgive me! I am also a Member of WPPI, The wedding and portrait photographers international.  My goal in 2015 is to finally submit some work for awards.My style, approach and enthusiasm for documenting the landmarks in people’s lives, mixed with my passion for photography and commitment to my clients helps to make every shoot special for everyone involved.  I like to keep with current trends, but strive for timeless heirlooms.From engagement photos and weddings to pets, maternity, children, and editorial photography.  My style is candid and classic, with an heirloom quality that can be cherished for generations.  I don’t want to create the moment, I want to be there in the wings documenting it.

I like to bring my passion for art and design to every shoot with a creative attitude that I like to think helps turn photos into stories. I also bring my sense of humour to every shoot and wedding, which helps to make the day run smoothly and enjoyably for everyone. If everyone isn’t enjoying themselves – it’s going to show in your photos!
