Your Okanagan

Lifestyle Photographer


Bold colour, rich tones & vibrancy, creamy skin tones, contrast, & creating a mood are always forefront in my photography style process. I edit on the basis that all shoots are unique, you will always receive consistent quality images. Your choice in outfits & location, the time of day along with the weather & season, even your outward vibe plays a roll in my editing. Please make sure you've browsed my portfolio before booking and are as in love with it as I am!

The Girl Behind The Lens


What I Offer To You


With me you're always going to get pure honest, open, silly, true to self Tara. I won't ever claim to be someone I'm not, an authentic photography experience is what I am all about.


I am a firm believer that everyone deserves amazing photographs hanging in their home. No matter what the session type, I aim to create lifestyle images. I want you to have a great time and be present in the moment, for you to truly be the genuine you. No faking it here!


The environment you'll enter with me will always be safe, open minded, and non judgmental. I'm here to accept your feral children, your awkward nerves, your beautifully unique imperfections, your calm or chaos, your real love, however that looks to you. Together we will capture the bonafide moments that make up your life.


My goal is that by being truly myself it makes it easy for you to be your comfortable natural self during your photo session, because your internal beauty and aura certainly shows through in your final images.



A little bit about Me


If you want to have an adventure for your session, I'm your gal! Time spent in nature, Taking the 4x4 out to explore with my husband, young son, and dogs, finding new beautiful places here in Armstrong, the surrounding North Okanagan and all over British Columbia, that's what makes my heart full. When I'm not communing with the great outdoors, you're likely to find me on the porch swing reading, or making creative messes that take me weeks to clean up. I also run the administrative side of our trucking business!


Wondering where the Primer Rust and Roses name came from?! Hot rods, fast cars, old trucks, rumbling exhaust, burnouts, this girl is THERE! I don't care if it's shot coated with primer, covered in rust, or painted pretty as roses, I'll be rubberneckin the cool stuff so hard I get whiplash!


Your turn now, can't wait to hear from you!
