About Page images by Jessica Remus Photography
I'm Tara; wife, mother of three, follower of Jesus, photographer, musician, teacher, vegetarian. I pursued a career as a music teacher and I hold a Master's of Music degree from Western Michigan University. I started my photography journey with black and white film in high shool. I probably shouldn't mention that I got a C in that class... My obsession with digital photography began shortly after the birth of my second child. I live in the fabulously hip little community of Mattawan, Michigan. Like many Midwest moms, I consume far too much coffee, wine, and chocolate.
The most important goal of each session is to bring out the true character within each individual photographed. I am passionate about telling each family's story in an authentic and artful way. Come to your session prepared to dance, laugh, hug, whisper secrets, jump, tickle, and maybe cause a little mischief. Many styles of portrait photography are represented in my body of work, from Lifestyle and on-location, to studio portraiture, authenticity and expression are common themes throughout my images. Call me and let's talk about how we can document your family's story in photographs.
