10 Questions for Taryn Chrapkowski

About the image…

1) Why do you love this image?

Little Miss E was one of my baby plan clients. This image brings so much emotion to me, as this was from her one year session, and I have had the pleasure of watching her grow from a newborn, to a 3 month old, to 6 months, 9 months, and now one year. Nothing is better than that!


2) What were your settings with this image?

ISO 400,Focal Length 35mm, Aperture 2.0, Shutter Speed 1/250


About Photography…
3) What do you love about Photography?

EVERYTHING! I love the emotion present behind a captured image. I love being included in that moment of my client’s life. I love being able to provide people with art that will last a lifetime. There is something so powerful and emotional behind photographs, and I love seeing that moment when people view images.


4) What type of Photography do you specialize in and why?

Mainly babies/children and families… that is where my passion lies and what got me started in photography to begin with.


About your life. . .
5) What are your favorite hobbies and pastimes?

Anything crafty. I think I have tried just about everything!


6) Who or what inspires you?

My family… each and every day.


7) Who are some of your favorite singers/bands?

Hmmm… that one is tough… I currently like Katy Perry and Pink… most anything that is on the top 100.


8 ) What is your favorite movie of all time?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Audrey Hepburn had a classic beauty that is exemplified in that film.


9) What would your ideal day be like?

Anything spent with my kids and my camera.


10) If you weren’t a photographer, what other profession would you like to pursue?

I do have a second career as a special education teacher. I think working with children my entire adult life has helped me better relate to my clients during our sessions.
