AboutTara Swain

Hi, I'm Tara! I love bright colors, a vintage, eclectic feel and whimsical concepts. My passion is child photography. I've been happily married since 2005 and we are blessed with a beautiful little girl, Briley Grace "Bear," and a "chubbalicious" little boy, Beau Isaac "Beau boy," who you will often read about on the blog.


Casie made a stunning bride!!!! I was unable to photograph her wedding because Briley had a dance competition that day, but I was still able to shoot her engagements and bridal session. Her dress was just gorgeous and Smokin Hot did an amazing job with her beautiful makeup!! So many favorites from her bridal session!!

4 Months

Each month just goes by faster and faster. :( My boy is getting so big and seems to be doing so much so quickly. I can’t seem to slow time down. He is such a snuggle bug still and I cannot get enough. He is just a happy, social little boy.. just like his sister was. He’s had so much congestion and sinus issues that he’s not been his normal happy self for a few weeks.. and we are ready for our sweet boy to feel better and get back to normal. He’s still fairly laid back, but we were wrong.. and he DOES have a bit of his sister’s temper when he wants to. Haha.

We still can’t decide what color is hair is trying to be.. some days it looks reddish.. some days it looks brown and on other days it looks like it’s turning blonde. Then there are his eyes… Briley had bright blue eyes right away. Beau’s are a dark blue but have a gold ring right around the pupil. Some days they look green even. 1 thing we don’t have to guess about… he’s going to be tall. Pretty certain he’s going to pass Briley in the height department in just a couple years. He’s already the size of a 6 month old. He is taller right now than Briley was at almost 7 months! He weighs more than Briley did as well but when you compare pictures she LOOKS SO much chubbier because she didn’t have the length he does. She was more compact. At his 4 month visit he was 18.1 lbs and 27 1/2 inches tall! I’m betting we are getting close to the 19lb mark now!
