My name is Tara Newman, owner of Sela Photography.

I am married to my best friend, Grae, we have two sons and a daughter, and  a dog named Layla. They are my world and my full time models when I'm not doing paid jobs. I will spare you all the photos of them on here but I gladly share when asked! (wink wink) 
I love, love, love taking photos! I find so much joy in it! I have been in business for about 16 years and have learned so much along the way! It is a tough business to be in these days and I know that the competition is fierce. If you are here looking at my site I want to first of all thank you!  I have a unique style and love to do new things.

The word "sela" comes from a hebrew word meaning "take time to rest or to think about it". This is the goal of Sela Photography. We take the time to get the best image to remember all of lifes split seconds that can be so easily forgotten. Whether it's a wedding, a senior year, or a new addition, I would love to a part of it and tell your story through photos. 


I love coffee and sushi and would gladly meet for either to chat about your upcoming event or photo shoot! To schedule or to just ask questions, please feel free to call or email. 


Thanks for stopping by!

Success! Message received.
