The Photographer

My name is Tamra Hyde.  I have been married to my wonderful husband for 16 years.  We have seven beautiful children.  They were my initial inspiration for my photography and continue to be willing subjects. ;-)

I have been an artist all of my life.  Photography is just another medium, another avenue of expression.  I love developing my talent in more and more creative ways.

Cook Family- UT family photography

Here’s another of my faithful returning families. I love winter portraits! Snow just adds a whole new depth to  a family portrait. Don’t let the snow hold you back from visiting the outdoor studio! Remember we do have an indoor location now in Millcreek as well.

One Year Adrian- Utah Baby Photographer

This is my darling nephew, Adrian and my dear sister, Angela. I can’t believe our babies are already a year old! He’s such a dapper young man.

Harris Family- UT family photographer

I love the darling Harris family. They are all so adorable! Thank you for coming to my outdoor studio!

Robinson Family- Utah Family Photography

I have had the opportunity to photograph this lovely growing family many times! It’s fun to see a family with as many children as I have. I have nine children myself.

Grant Family- UT Family Photographer

This is another one of my families that return for portraits every year! I love these cute kids and it is so fun to see them grow! These portraits were done at Murray Park.

Smith Family- Extended Family Photography UT

I love extended families! I love seeing the generations expanding and the joy of Grandma and Grandpa as they enjoy their grandchildren. This session was done at Wheeler Farm.

Smith Family- Utah Family Photography

I adore this family. They have had many trials in their lives but the face it head on with strength and conviction.

Fairy Rachael- Utah Fine Art Children’s Portraiture

Magic Moments sessions are my FAVORITE! Sweet little Rachael was the perfect little fairy. Her red hair is amazing! Thank you for visiting our outdoor studio, little one!

Thompson Family- Utah Family Photography

I love families that come back year after year. This year we went down to the Great Salt Lake to make some memories for the Thompson family.

Newborn Lily- UT Newborn Photography

What a darling sweet girl. I love the name Lily and so I had to place her in one!
