Hello, friend! My name is Tara Polly. I’ve got a grateful heart, I’m an artist, and I really love what I do.

Here’s a little more about me: I’m a free spirit who lives for mountain adventures, thrifting treasure hunts and cross country road trips. I’m married to this babe who brews craft beer at home and lets me drink some of it. I’m mama to Jude and River, who inspire me to see life with fresh eyes every day. A daily practice of loving meditation keeps me centered. I believe the whole wide world is my home, I’m down with wearing flowers in my hair, and you can often find me listening to true crime podcasts (because why not scare yourself right before going to sleep at night?). Good pour over coffee is a part of my every day. One time my actual wildest dream came true and I was invited onstage to sing with my idol, Martin Sexton. F’real.

I offer creative portraiture for dreamers. Offbeat, alternative style shoots and imaginative portrait sessions are my sweet spot. As photographers we often talk about finding “good light,” but my intention in my art is to document the light of who YOU are in the just the way you shine it. My clients tend to be creative souls living wildly authentic lives. As a photographer, I find inspiration in nature, in architecture, and in fashion — but above all else, I’m driven by the unique, open-hearted people who find their way to me for photos. I have some of the world’s raddest clients and am thankful to call so many of them friends.

Bottom line? I already love who you are and I can’t wait to tell your story.
