Everything I do, I do 100%. I am obsessed with lip gloss and currently have 14 different kinds in my purse.  I would love to stop loving Mtn. Dew, but it just makes me so happy, at least 10 times a day.  I may never wear high heels again, seriously.  I think that a little OCD can be a blessing, especially when it keeps you as organized as me.  I am an overprotective mom, and totally okay with it.  My family is my most precious possession so I handle them with care.  Just ask my friends, they think I am nuts!  I am a self-proclaimed (and most everyone would agree) work-a-holic.  I think that just about any truly important life lesson you need to learn, you can do so by watching Grey’s Anatomy…..and I really want to live in a world where I can bust into song anytime I feel the need like on Glee.

I am not very good at talking about myself, I would much rather talk about the people I love.  I am one of those people who was lucky enough to marry my best friend, and as each day goes by I believe even more that we were meant for each other.  I can’t imagine going through this life without him.  He makes the fun times more fun, and the hard times easier to bear.  He is more than I ever could have imagined, and I love him to more as each moment passes.  I was also blessed with two of the naughtiest, wildest, most cuddly, and most funny little boys in the world.  There is never a dull moment when they are around.  They have made more messes in my house than I will ever be able to clean up, and they have filled my life with more happiness than I thought was humanly possible.

When I am not soaking up the little moments with my boys, I do about a million other things.  I truly believe one way to be truly happy is to keep yourself busy doing things that make you happy.  And I want to be really happy, so I keep really busy!  Most of my non-mommy/wife projects revolve around my business AK Studio & Design. I wasn’t one of those girls who picked up a camera with my first child and fell in love with photography.  I am the girl who wants to own my own business, be my own boss and make my own rules and just happens to be pretty good at taking pictures.  My philosophy is simple.  I love to capture those bright, fresh, candid moments that show the ones we love as they really are.  My number one goal at every session is to capture a real glimpse of that perfect “moment”….whether it be a father and son chasing each other, a mother snuggling her newborn baby, the first kiss of a newly married couple, or just kids out being kids!  So be yourself!  Have fun!  Enjoy the moment!  And I hope in looking at my work you always find a reason to smile.

I am also one lucky girl because photography has opened so many doors for me.  I have been so unbelievably blessed to be in the right place at the right time to be involved with some amazing things!  Some of my favorite photography projects include Mommy Models. Helping to make the average mommy feel like something more than a spit up covered, pooped covered, overworked, tired gal.  SoUtah Weddings, which is dedicated to helping brides find beautiful, creative ideas as they put together the most amazing days of their life. …….and now the Dating Divas!  I am so excited for everything that is in my future!

And to celebrate all this excitement…I am announcing Ten Days of Different (formerly the Ten Days of Deals). The past year has been a big one and so much has transpired to get me to this place.  So what better way to announce it all than with some super fun giveaways!!!  Just hop on over to my blog to see all the ways to save!!!  There are amazing deals on every session from newborns, to families, to seniors, and wedding packages!  There will also be great info on Mommy Models and how you can sign up!  And for all you aspiring photographers out there I am going to be announcing a new addition to AK Studio & Design just for you…mentoring!  So there is something for everyone…what are you waiting for!  Click HERE now!  And I will see you soon!  Can’t wait!

About the Author: Tara

I am an outgoing and fun-lovin’ gal who was lucky enough to marry the man of my dreams! You could probably say I am an “extreme extrovert” as I LOVE to talk and be around people! I love ANYTHING creative and am not a fan of the “norm.” My favorite things in life are my family… especially my HOT husband, my friends, and my faith! We are expecting a miracle baby boy this year! I have a passion for life and I am having a BLAST running this website with some of my closest friends!
