Tara O. became interested in photography around age ten, when she began setting up photo sessions of her younger sister in their bedroom, using a play 35mm camera, play clothes to dress her sister up and stuffed animals as props. She participated in elective photo classes in high school, where she fell in love with the dark room. Her passion continued as she pursued her degree in Fine Art at Arizona State University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Photography in 2008.

As she ended her formal art education, she started to narrow in on portraiture exclusively, and simultaneously continued to fall into the niche world of retro styling. She has specialized in pinup portraits most of her ten year professional career.

Q1: How would you describe the aesthetic of your website in three words?

TO: Babes, babes and – babes!

Q2: How often do you typically update your website?

TO: I update my website whenever I have a new image that I feel exemplifies my work really well, it’s so easy to add an image to my galleries whenever the feeling strikes me!

Q3: How do you choose the photos that you display on your homepage?

TO: It’s so hard to decide what to feature on the very front page of my site, but I picked a handful that I feel really shows the type of images I strive for with my clients. I love working with women of all shapes, sizes, colors and in varying levels of modesty.

Q4: What is your favorite feature of liveBooks8?

TO: I love the template designs for liveBooks. They are clean and crisp, which puts the attention on your images- which is important to me as a photographer. I want my photos to be what is the most prevalent and noticeable on my website, without extra frills distracting from my work.

Q5: What’s one piece of advice you’d offer to someone designing their website?

TO: Reach out to colleagues or mentors to help you edit your images. Sometimes less is more and a well curated website is vital.

I’m so lucky to have been using liveBooks for several years. Adding and updating my website couldn’t be simpler and doesn’t take up time I need for so much of the other work that goes into being a photographer!
