The Experience

Work with Tara Lynn

One of my super powers is putting pets and people at ease in front of the camera. It’s a skill I learned in my 15+ years as a TV News Reporter and Anchor. My volunteer work with rescue animals from all backgrounds allows me to make your dog or cat feel safe in order for his or her personality to shine. As a mom of three, I’ve got plenty of #dadjokes and other tools to keep your kids engaged and get genuine smiles out of them. < Yes! It is possible.

I’ll happily guide you every step of the way so all you have to do is show up and smile. Here’s how:

STEP 1: GET IN MY INBOX

I live and die by my inbox. Contact me via email to receive my Client Guide and to set a time to chat by phone.

Skip the DMs on Instagram and Facebook and head right into my email for the quickest response.

STEP 2: LET’S CHAT BY PHONE

We’ll set up a phone call so we can chat all about your family, gush over our dogs, giggle over their cuteness and get excited about how great you will all look in your photos. I’ll get to know you, your style, and your kids and pets personality so I can design a custom experience for you.

From location, to clothing, to leashes and how to prepare your pets (or bribe your kids), I’ll handle the details.

STEP 3: RESERVE YOUR DATE

Fill out the Client Questionnaire and contract and pay your session fee.

STEP 4: GET PURRTY

One to two weeks before your session – Finalize your outfit choices (don’t forget to pick which shoes you’ll wear too) and schedule a haircut for the humans or a grooming appointment for your dog.

Not sure what to wear? Check out my Pinterest board for how to style your family for a photo session.

STEP 5: WEATHER CHECK

I’ll contact you for a final confirmation of time and where to meet. We’ll also chat if we need to make adjustments due to the weather.

STEP 6: HAVE FUN!

The day of your session, relax and have fun. I have a large library of #dadjokes and toot sounds for the kids and treats and squeakers for the dogs to get their attention and keep them laughing.

STEP 7: THE SNEAK PEEK

Check out my Facebook and Instagram pages for a sneak preview of your session a few days later.

STEP 8: REVEAL DAY

Reveal day! I’ll email you a slideshow of your images that is available to view the day before our ordering session. This way you can squeal and dance and jump up and down in the privacy of your own home if needed.

We will meet in person to view your images, select your favorites and finalize your order and payment.

STEP 9: DELIVERY DAY

“Here comes Santa Claus. Here comes Santa Claus.” < I’ll be singing this on my way to deliver your wall art, albums and goodies. Because, there’s no greater gift than capturing and sharing your love with family and friends..

Let’s get started

“My best friend and beloved dog, Dexter, passed away this week at 14.5 years. Tara Lynn’s photos of our family have been getting me through this extremely difficult time. She beautifully captured his spirit and our bond as a family in a way that defies words. Thank you for this priceless gift!”
