Senior Pictures with Tara Rochelle are a unique experience from the very start and now it's time to get super excited!! Chances are you've been waiting quite some time for your senior pictures and so I want everything to be an awesome experience for you!!
We will be doing so much more than just creating some gorgeous swoon worthy images! We are going to spend the day of your shoot having an absolute blast!
I will help you pick just the right location for what you want : something urban, something natural, maybe a combination of places.

Your session will feel more like playing dress up and getting pampered by your very own glam squad! No stiff, boring, or un-natural poses!  
I want to show off what makes you “YOU” and showcase your personality!! Feel free to bring along your favorite props, sports items, or furry friend to incorporate into your session.
Professional Makeup Application (& optional Hairstyling) is REQUIRED for ALL of our sessions for the ladies and make for a true once in a lifetime senior portrait experience (please inquire for current rates which are paid directly to the artist the day of your session).

From our first initial contact until the delivery of your beautiful finished images, your experience will be custom tailored to fit just what you need. My ultimate goal is to give you an amazing experience!! Not only do I want you to love your custom portraits, but I want you to have fun during the process! 

the experience


A little about me….

I love my two girls more than I could ever imagine. I am a movie junkie and used to quote The Breakfast Club on a daily basis. I am addicted to MAC makeup and have enough to open my own store. I am a complete sap for animals and used to have so many, I should have been on Wild Kingdom. Starbucks in my most favorite coffee but probably just because I’m from Seattle. Anything ipad, ipod, iphone, imac, iLOVE!! I met (and later married) my high school sweetheart at AMC Theaters in 1990 and we moved to the Los Angeles area right after getting hitched!

About the Tara Rochelle studio… Tara Rochelle Photography began in the late 90’s in my hometown of Seattle, Washington. After graduating from the Art Institute of Seattle with a major in both fashion and portrait photography, I moved to sunny Los Angeles and began learning from some amazing portrait and wedding photography studios that helped develop who I am as an artist today.

I love working with people and throughout the years, I have photographed just about everything having to do with them. Weddings, maternity, families, you name it. In the later part of my career, I shifted gears a bit and started specializing in teen portraits and high school senior photography. Seniors and Teens are a perfect blend of my love for fashion and portrait photography! I do reserve a small amount of sessions for other types of photography as well.

In the spring of 2015 I opened up my first studio!! It is still one of my favorite spaces with a beautiful front room featuring some of my favorite images, a private makeup room with a style closet (lots of fun jewelry, dresses, and accessories), and over 700 square feet of dedicated shooting space!! It’s in the heart of the Santa Clarita Valley in Valencia, California!

I love photographing high school seniors that want something unique, modern, and with a fashion edge. I’m available for sessions throughout the greater Los Angeles area including Santa Monica, Pasadena, and Orange County. Destination senior portrait sessions are available upon request.

valencia high school | valencia california

Basically my whole life, I’ve dreamt of being a model but being only 5’5”, that didn’t seem very plausible, until Tara came into my life. She made me feel like an actual model, beautiful and confident. She fulfilled my hopes and dreams of modeling.

You can tell she has such a passion for what she does because although she photographs tons of people daily. Tara makes me feel so important, like I’m her biggest priority in that moment.

I would do a photoshoot with her everyday if I could. It’s honestly the best experience and no one should have to go through their senior year without the amazing photos that Tara delivers to remember it by.

Tara is seriously a miracle worker and she can make anyone feel gorgeous. I’m obsessed with Tara Rochelle!


"She made me feel...

SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL | santa clarita california

I absolutely love Tara!! She is so silly, goofy, and fun just like me. So right away I felt super comfortable with her in front of the camera. Melissa did a spectacular job with my makeup and hair and is the sweetest person ever!!! They helped me with everything, from the outfits to the makeup to the hair to accessories!

This was the most amazing once in a lifetime experience I’ve ever had and I’m so happy Tara was a part of it.

Tara made me feel like a true model for the day! This was truly an unforgettable experience for both me and my mom.


"This was the most amazing

Tara was so incredibly fun to shoot with! She made me feel so confident and genuinely happy to meet me and take my senior pictures.

It’s more than just a photo shoot with her, she makes the whole day and experience to remember and helps with outfit and location choices leading up to the session.

If you’re looking for someone to shoot you, I highly recommend Tara as your photographer. You won’t regret it!


"It's more than


Where do I start. Tara is one of the few great photographers out there that will truly capture the beauty in everything.

She will do whatever it takes to help satisfy your needs and requests. She will take you from the desert to the railroad tracks to the laundromat to her studio hoping to capture the precious smiling moments & your beauty. Tara Rochelle made me feel comfortable & like a real model in front of the camera. I’m so lucky to have found her for my senior photos because she has given me the best start to this year.

People say senior year is one of those memorable and once in a life time things. And I can say with no hesitation, Tara Rochelle Photography will help make that senior year special and truly memorable for anyone!


"Make that senior year


I just had my senior photo shoot with Tara today and she is absolutely amazing!!

I’ve never felt so special and pretty than she made me feel today. She knows how to capture the most stunning photos in places you would never imagine. 

This was honestly one of the most fun days I’ve had in a long time. I feel truly blessed to have worked with such an amazing photographer and cannot wait to see the finished project.

"She knows how to

Canyon HIGH SCHOOL | Canyon country CALIFORNIA

Working with Tara was the “cherry on top” of my senior year. Her work is simply amazing and she made me feel so beautiful and confident in my own skin. She can turn any location into an entire photo shoot set. She is incredibly talented and finds beauty in places where people wouldn’t normally find it. Tara is a funny, hilarious human being.

In spending one minute with her you know she is passionate about what she does and the individuals she photographs.

I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to work with such a genuinely amazing person like Tara!

The cherry on top of my senior year"

Hart High School | Newhall CALIFORNIA

Tara Rochelle was an absolute pleasure to deal with for senior pictures! My daughter is usually camera-shy, and you would have never known it after Tara and her staff transformed her with their glamour magic.

There was no special request too difficult nor detail unattended to.

Tara genuinely listens to and understands how to bring out the unique beauty in each subject.

We are so thrilled with the final results!!

"...knows how to bring out

valencia HIGH SCHOOL | valencia CALIFORNIA


Having my senior portraits done by Tara was an amazing decision. I was actually quite nervous and scared I was going to be awkward, but Tara made the entire experience very enjoyable. Her fun personality can make anyone feel beautiful, special, and confident. We were at the Griffith Observatory for my shoot and because there were so many people around, I was a bit shy at first, but Tara made sure I was comfortable and encouraged me to just embrace the experience and be myself.

I also loved how she considered what I wanted or what I envisioned for my senior portraits, but also incorporated her many creative ideas. 

Tara has great fashion taste too!! She’s totally in on the current fashion trends, and helped me plan out which outfits to wear for which location.

I had a really great time doing my photo shoot with Tara. Not only was it just a senior portrait session, but it was a fun and memorable adventure that I will remember for a very long time. I would definitely recommend Tara Rochelle to all of my friends and thank you Tara so much for capturing my senior year and for letting me have such a great experience!

Fun and memorable adventure"

"....It was a 


Three years ago, Tara gave us some of the most incredible pictures of our daughter, Ali, during her senior photo shoot! She composed a uniquely visual story about Ali that just leaped right off the canvas.

When it came time for her younger sister, Krissy, to sit in front of the camera for her senior portraits, we knew that we couldn’t settle for anyone but Tara to capture her true essence on film. And again, Tara delivered a priceless experience! Now that we’ve run out of daughters to photograph… it’s time for a family photo shoot with Tara!!!
