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.

Magic Moments- Flower Girl- Utah Fine Art Portraiture

We just got this new dress for Magic Moments Minis in a size 6. Eloise, pictured here, wears a size 4 so it is a versatile dress. This spot is near my home and thus it can be used for minis should you so choose.

Mine- Cake Smash- Ruby- Utah Baby Photography

I can’t believe my darling Ruby is a year old! The time passed by so quickly! She is just starting to stand for a few seconds at a time. She says “ah oh”, thank you, Mama, Dada, Nee (Rani), Hello, Hi, Bye Bye and she’ll also try to repeat any words you try to get her to say. She’s an exuberant busy girl and she blesses our lives in so many ways. I love you sweet Ruby and I am so excited for what’s to come for you!

Mine- Sullivan Freshman Year- Utah teen photographer

My 15 year old, Sullivan, bleached his hair so I just had to take him out for an official Freshman year session. It has simply been ages since I have had him in front of the camera and he’s such a natural!


Mine- Growing up -Utah children’s photography

It’s not often I can get my boys in front of the camera. I was setting up for a session and I asked my 11yo, Ollie to test out my backdrop. I can’t believe how grown up he looks! Love my sweet boy!


Mine- Ruby 10 months- Utah Baby Photography

My spunky Ruby is 10 months old now. She is learning to sign and can definitely say NO by shaking her head and YES by nodding. She can stand on her own for a few seconds but it makes her nervous. She mastered climbing the stairs and is still working on going down. She can say Mama, Dada, Nuh Nuh(nurse), Dye Dye(bye bye) and tries to say the kids names though they all sound like Nyah Nyah.

New Fairy Attire- Utah Child Photography

My sweet Virginia braved the freezing cold to show you the new dress we have available for Magic Moments Minis this summer! So exciting! Watch for our ad in Hometown Values Magazing in March for a deal. :-)
