Hi, I’m Tamar (pronounced like lion “tamer”).

I am a portrait and event photographer in the New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. I love using natural light to capture simple, timeless images of genuine connection between people. My style is a mix of photojournalistic and posed shots, for anyone and any occasion.

I have a Master’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies and  years of experience working with families with children with developmental disorders and problem behaviors. As a result, I’m flexible and patient with children, and can keep my cool in almost any situation. I want you to be relaxed and have a good time! My goal is to catch you at your best, not try to force you into a stiff pose that doesn’t feel like you. My photo sessions tend to start out a bit posed to get you comfortable in front of the camera, but my favorite shots are the ones I get when you forget that I’m there.

My mission

My goal as your photographer is to create images that you can display and share proudly with your family and friends for years to come. I want to capture a moment between you and your loved ones that will make you smile every day, and years from now when you look back through your album or pass on your heirloom wall portraits.

When I first made the shift from hobbyist to professional I was happy to give folks a disk of their images and move on to the next shoot, but I realize now that this was a great disservice. Many families later told me that they’d printed a few copies for holiday cards or gifts for relatives, but they never got around to printing images for themselves. Some looked into wall art or albums, but weren’t sure which companies had the highest quality, which products were right for them, or which sizes would fit best in their space.

The whole reason they came to me was because they wanted something special that they could enjoy and treasure, but their lovely faces ended up in a drawer, a waste of time and energy, and in my opinion MONEY. Now I make it a priority to make sure that every family walks away with the right products to fit their needs and interests, while still being cognizant of their budget.  I think every family deserves beautiful portraits of their family!

I am looking forward to working with you to create high-quality portraits that reflect who you are and what’s important to you.
