Dancer”I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness

The astonishing light of your own being.”

– Hafiz

My name is Tara Lemana, I am a contemporary portrait photographer and photographic artist servicing Wellington and the Kapiti Coast. I specialise in contemporary women’s photography, creating couture portraits that show the beauty in women of all ages, all shapes and sizes. My Couture portrait sessions are a pampering, luxurious experience that is aimed at celebrating the woman you are, showing you the beauty I see when I look through my lens. Maternity Couture sessions hold a special place in my heart – after all, what better time to remind a woman of her beauty and sensuality than when she is feeling large and uncomfortable?

I am also available for relaxed family sessions on the Kapiti coast and around the Wellington area. My specialty is creating portraits that show your family as you are, while still offering some guidance to help you obtain frame worthy portraits you will treasure for a lifetime. I am able to shoot on location or at your home, depending on your needs. And for those of you who love your family’s uniqueness and wish to have your real, raw every day life captured in truth, without posing or scripting, I have some very exciting news: this year (2017) I will be adding a new service – family documentary sessions, which I am thrilled to be offering. Stay tuned for more information!

Lastly, I am also an accomplished digital artist. I offer custom photo shoots of you or your loved ones with the view to creating a wonderful, one-off fantasy portrait to hang in your home. Please view the Artistry Reverie page for more information.
