AboutTara Swain

Hi, I'm Tara! I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Paris, Texas. I love bright colors, a vintage, eclectic feel and whimsical concepts. My passions are weddings and child photography. I've been happily married for over 8 years with a beautiful 4 year old little girl and I love being a photographer.


2nd Annual Mermaid mini sessions!! Due to rainouts I had 3 days of 3 different types of mini sessions in 1 week.. (24 sessions total… at 4 months pregnant..) I was beyond exhausted at the end of that week… but it was SO worth it. This was the 2nd day of minis that week. :) These were a little different than last year. I wanted a different feel from last year.. and more of a “lagoon” feel.. I adore how they turned out!!!

As a lot of things I do, these were also inspired my Briley.. last Spring she asked me if she could “be a mermaid” and live in the pond. So I immediately started trying to figure out how to let her do that. You can see HER mermaid pictures from last year HERE… and everyone else’s HERE.

These are another annual thing that will continue each year with TSP.. I feel like they are a good example of my brand and a little piece of what represents the style of my business. :)

A few favorites from this years LAGOON Mermaid minis!! :D

My 2nd annual Unicorn mini sessions!! :) These are a staple at Tara Swain Photography. They happen once a year.. but will continue to happen yearly. I adore each of these sessions, and even though they are a LOT of work.. they are sooo much fun and I love seeing the reactions of the little girls. ;)

I was obsessed with anything Unicorn when I was little (and still am a bit) ;) ..and these started 2 years ago when I started working on how to bring these to life for my daughter Briley, who also loves everything Unicorn. :)

Another huge thank you to my friend from Gypsy Tails who always helps me bring these to life!! A few favorites from this years TSP Unicorn mini sessions! :D

Hair extensions: Gypsy Tails
Custom hand painted Unicorn sign: Easy Street
“DREAM” gold glitter letters: Mint to be a Southern Junky

Emily + Nic had a beautiful wedding at Hickory Street Annex in Dallas last month! Birds of a Feather did a wonderful job putting together all of the details. There were so many beautiful touches.. like the surprise Gosepel choir that performed during the ceremony. Emily made a beautiful bride. So many favorites from their wedding day!
