Year by Year


My first paid photo job! My classmate trusted me to photograph her Sweet 16. 


Graduated from Indiana University and moved to Chicago where I started my first real side business in photography. I started photographing families and couples almost every weekend.


Got a new job in Chicago that had me doing a lot more photography work! In addition to doing social media strategy, I would travel around the country to tradeshows and events taking photos for different brands. 


Married my high school sweetheart back on Long Island! Our wedding photographer is still such a mentor to me <3 

my own wedding!

Moved to California and started to take freelance photo jobs in Marin and San Francisco. I met a lot of my wonderful new neighbors during the “lockdown” phase and photographed a lot of their babies outside while masked and at a “social distance.” What a time to be alive. 


Launched Taryn Beller Photo and went full time with photography!!! After 14 years of dreaming about it :-) I could not be more excited. 


Welcomed my daughter on my 32nd birthday! Fun fact, not only do we share a birthday, but I found out I was pregnant the day the same day I launched my business. Turned out I was pregnant in the picture above, but it would be a few days before I knew! 


Taryn took incredible maternity and newborn photos for our family! Not only did the photos turn out wonderfully, but it was also a pleasure to work with her. Her bubbly personality puts you and your little ones at ease. We know that we will continue to use her services in the future!"

"Her bubbly personality puts you and your little ones at ease.


Taryn was so great to work with! She was not only easy going and flexible when planning our photoshoot, she was amazing with my daughter. I love the positivity she brought to the photoshoot and most of all I LOVE the photos."

"I can’t wait for the next opportunity to work with Taryn!

Taryn not only has an amazing talent for capturing your most important moments, she does it in a way that you don't even realize the emotions she sees. Then you look at the photos and think, wow, that is exactly how I want to remember that time. Those faces. That joy. I know this from the many family photos she's taken of us over the years but also from seeing the thousands of shots she has taken that celebrated milestones for others. She cares deeply about her subjects and it shows!"

"Anyone can snap a picture but it takes a passionate photographer like her to give you the memories of a lifetime.

don't just take my word for it.
