Hey y’all! Thanks for stopping by my little place on the web that I call my own. I’m Taryn, the owner and creative mind behind Taryn Melgoza Photography. I’m a native Texan, born and raised in the Houston area and a Texas A&M graduate. Photography was a dream that turned into a reality when I picked up my first DSLR camera in 2009 and began photographing close family and friends. I’m a mommy of two fun-loving children, Jensen (4) and Penelope (1.5) that you will see frequently on my blog and a wife to my high school sweetheart, Andy. I am known for my use of natural light to create dreamy sun-drenched images and my ability to make timeless works of art of your newborn baby. I have a passion for soft muted colors, lace, texture, and all things vintage. Here are a few random, *yet important* details about me:
–I am a former Procurement Specialist (corporate America), turned Algebra teacher, turned Professional Photographer. I’ve done a little bit of everything and I can say with complete confidence, THIS is what I was meant to do
–an animal lover. We have a 12 year old blue heeler fur-baby named Sydney-Sue and an adopted Lab-Terrier mix named Greta-Lou
–I can bake/decorate a mean cupcake and have a weakness for eating dessert
–I am a two-time marathoner, a triathlete

Jenna is Taryn’s newborn assistant and works with Taryn on every newborn session to ensure each baby is always safe, comfortable and snuggled. She relocated to Texas over 2 years ago and absolutely loves it here (although she misses her family and friends back in Minnesota).
Here are some fun facts about her:
–I’m a momma of 5 beauties-4 girls and one boy
–I’m married to one of God’s greatest gifts to me-for nearly 20 years!
–I love singing, creating many things and just being with family and friends
–I love that my creativity gets to flow while I am assisting Taryn with the precious newborns that we get to spend time with!
