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.

Mine- My Lovely Virginia- Utah Baptism Photography

She’s growing up right before my eyes! I didn’t realize how much until we were shopping for dresses together. That moment when we both knew it was THE dress took my breath away. Happy baptism day my darling!

6 month old Adrian- Utah baby photographer

This is my darling nephew, Adrian’s, six month shoot. You will see that 5 month old Jasper joined him in a shot. My grandfather built airplanes and this session was in memory of him. Adrian has his name for his middle.

It’s Dance Studio Season!- Utah Dance Studio Photography

These are my own kids pics from the first day of shooting Starz Unlimited Dance Studio. I love photographing the wide variety of dance styles at Starz. They offer ballet, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, ballroom and the feature their competition clogging.
