Elies VR says:
"you're going to get so far with your talents and your open mind.
it's so good that you try to experiment and how many good results have come from that.
I feel like you don't really care what people find of your work and that makes them even more marvellous.
Keep making those beautiful creations, Tara!"

ting s, says:
"i'm pretty sure i could speak for everyone by saying that tara is a true artist.
she takes wonderful photos, is a fantastic and eloquent writer, she sings, has an genuine appreciation for classic films, vintage fashion...honestly, what doesn't tara do that isn't relevant to art?
tara is an old soul and is one of the most compassionate people on flickr and leaves the best, and most meaningful comments on everyone's photos. she really makes you feel like you're actually creating something worthwhile.
thank you tara for being such a lovely person, and i'd love to get to know you better."
18th April, 2010
Chloë Wojewoda says:
"Tara I would like to thank you. You make me want to be not only a better photographer, but a better person. There is something about you so gentle and beautiful. Please keep that magic, that spark. I don't know what it is, you probably don't either. Your work is changing and growing so nicely, and you listen to some great music (: I could just say a million nice things but I won't, it might get repetitive."
1st March, 2010
"So. Tara is not only an AMAZING, FANTASTIC, WHIMSICAL, INTELLIGENT, and CREATIVE person. She is also a fabulous photographer. When Tara takes a photo, its not ordinary and boring like photos taken by other people. Tara's photo's whisper artistic perfection, memories, emotions, and creativity into your eyes. Tara takes her photography seriously, but with a fun creative edge in mind at all times. Tara is a very creative person, and photography is the most perfect way to show her creativity. Her photographs range from Abstract to Zamazing. When you view her photos, you view places with a whole new perspective.
Tara, you are also an amazing friend. You are loving, caring, creative, and know when to comfort. You are also a great listener and story teller. AND you have really good taste in music.
When people ask me who is your BEST Friend, I smile and Say, Tara.
I am one proud and happy friend of Tara.
Tara you are fantastic."
15th February, 2010

1st September, 2009
"Tara, you are by far one of the most stunning girls I know. Your talent and potential is remarkable and I couldn't be happier that you've found your home in photography.
From my experience as a freelance model, I can easily say that you would be a very successful model - in portraiture or otherwise.
When I was your age, I was doing exactly what you are doing. Let me tell you, doll: It only gets better. Always acknowledge the opportunities you have and take advantage of them.
15th August, 2009

"magical, beautiful, and poetic.
i love this girl to death and she inspires my pictures and words more then anyone else or anything else.
i hope to be as good as a photographer as her when i get older. :)
she is gorgeous and so sweet and her pictures blow me away and her comments even inspire me.
her mind stretches wide and thinks of the most beautiful things and her titles for her pictures are even so beautiful i ask her to give me ideas sometimes.
thanks so much tara.
i don't know what my photography or me myself would be like if it weren't for you...you have made me a such a better person and i thank you so much and love you dearly for it :)"

"her face haunts my face and presses into the soft parts of my blanket brain."
13th June, 2009
"T for Terrific, A for Amazing, R for Really lovely and A for Adorable. Or something like that :D
I don't know her that well, but would love to, because she spreads such kindness on flickr! I can't believe how many people she has probably given a smile by leaving such sweet comments. So Tara deserves to be given a whole lot of smiles back. And hugs.
her photography? It's different - which is good. Kind of like those moments when you just wake up and the dream in your head is still going on but the colours of the day are already entering and they collide and for a moment you are neither here nor there. If that makes sense. Or rather like a ghost placing its hand upon you, hauntingly telling you that you are not alone. Or something else, something magical.
I just like how Tara's pictures make you feel like you're allowed to try out different shapes of creativity - you don't have to be like your flickr contacts - you don't have to have perfect focus and you don't have to have romantic colours. You can be real if you want. You can show what you feel, and it will touch people. Just like Tara does."
