Tara Bandes is the owner of Tara Bandes Photography, located in Annapolis, MD. Tara Bandes Photography provides natural light, on location family, maternity and children's photography services. Tara also enjoys photographing creatively intimate weddings. Tara has studied at the Washington School of Photography and the Art League of Alexandria and founded her business in 2010. Her personal style is to create a fun and laid-back environment for her subjects so they can be at ease throughout the session. She takes pride in capturing as much of her subject's personality as possible, not canned smiles or tense and awkward poses. Her eye seeks out the belly laughter reaction, the raw and inquisitive look only a curious child can give, or the glimpse of a loving husband's embrace that tells without words just how deeply he loves her. She finds the emotion that is happening in that moment in time and makes it last. Photography is Tara's way of stopping time, if only for a second. It's her way of claiming an instant to show what it looked like, felt like and most importantly, the love and happiness it brought so you can remember it forever.
