Tara Lemana


My name is Tara Lemana, and I am a contemporary portrait photographer servicing Wellington and the Kapiti Coast.

I specialise in contemporary women’s portrait photography, creating gorgeous portraits that show the beauty in women of all ages, all shapes and sizes.  My 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 portrait 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?

When it comes to family photography, I adore taking a more relaxed, fly-on-the-wall approach to capturing your family. I am able to provide you with posed portraits if you wish, but what I really love to do is spend half a day with your family while you go about your lives and allow me to capture real, raw memories and emotions as they happen. I would much rather have you and your partner or children be relaxed and comfortable, without fretting if your smiles are perfect enough or stress if a child doesn’t want to sit still and “cooperate”. This type of photography is often referred to as lifestyle (where some posed portraits are also included) or documentary (where everything is unposed and unscripted), and I would love to talk to you about customising a session just perfect for you. 

I would also love to hear from you if you are looking to capture dance photos of yourself or your dancer child, are looking for a relaxed couples session or beautiful images of your newborn baby.
