I am just thankful for the people that let me do this thing & invite me into the spaces that are most special to them.

Learn more about me
I am Tiarra Sor-te (long e) you can make it fancy if you like.
I grew up with a backyard full of animals, but i'm a total city girl and will never leave (ok, maybe for the beach). I dream of living in a swanky loft downtown, but a 2 story in the suburbs is where i'm found. I could drink coffee all day and often do. Love to travel especially to places with amazing food.
Days off you'll find me strolling through the city with my 4 kiddos, yes they are all mine, holding the hand of my best friend as we laugh at the stupidest stuff.
Photography found me when i needed it the most, & I am thankful everyday.

LOOKS LIKE FILM
Tiarra made everything easy. She was very good at putting us at ease when we could have been stressing out. She helped us get all the pictures we wanted and she did a fantastic job with kindly directing the bridal party and family members. There were so many images of every part of our wedding- even things we would never have thought to ask for. Tiarra made sure everything was captured.
"WE WERE BOTH
Tiarra's calm demeanor and effortless ability to capture intimate photos while still giving you space to breathe is a true art form unique to herself. I didn't worry once because I knew she had everything under control. We knew exactly what to expect. ALWAYS and forever i will recommend Tiarra.
Above and beyond! She made it especially enjoyable with her sensible amusement and artistic awareness as she captured priceless moments.
"YOU TRULY CAPTURED EVERY POSITIVE FEELING FROM OUR DAY."
Tiarra captured my vision perfectly, and then some. Throughout the shoot she made me feel not just comfortable in my new body but empowered and beautiful. The shots she delivered were spectacular. I loved the photos so much that I decided to hire Tiarra again for my son's newborn photos, knowing that she could photograph him in a real, raw way that was completely different from the average newborn studio package. She took photos of our little family in the comfort of our own home, giving us time so that we never felt rushed, and captured the essence of our new life as a family of 3, and I will forever treasure them. Tiarra's versatility of shoots speaks to her skills - she is an absolute gem and I highly recommend her.
"I wanted something different - not your average pregnancy shoot"
My husband and I don't really like having our photos taken, we always feel awkward, but she was easygoing, friendly, funny, and knew how to help us get comfortable in front of the camera.
As you can see in her photos, she has her own style, and is not afraid to play with lighting, lenses, poses, angles, etc... she got the classic wedding shots that everyone wants, but my favorites are the ones where she took some creative liberty.
She put a lot of work into our shoot, scouting locations ahead of time. She was professional and personable, and we are thrilled with the final product. Our photos are killer. I would absolutely hire her again.
"The girl has intuition. We just trusted her experience and skill, and she nailed it."
Tiarra truly made all the difference during this special time. Whether it be our engagement photos or our wedding day, she made everything feel seamless, laid back & fun! Tiarra is great at bringing the tiniest little details to life while capturing the most special moments. She is a passionate photographer and passionate about connecting with people! We are SO thankful to have found a photographer & friend for life!
"The best decision we made during our wedding planning process!"
"Tiarra made us feel so natural and elegant in front of the camera. She was hands on from the moment we booked her and provided endless feedback. She was so easy to work with and made everything so exciting! We absolutely adore her quality of work and her as a person. She captured both our engagement and wedding photos and we could truly not be happier."
"She was so easy to work with and made everything so exciting!"
“My reason for getting professional photos was not hinged on any special occasion. For me, it was just about doing something special for myself. Who needs an excuse to get gorgeous pics taken by a pro? I’m so happy with my choice in working w/ Tiarra and feel like she really understood my vibe and goals. I can’t wait to book her again and see where else her camera can transports me. “
