I am already so excited to meet you! I remember the feelings of finally being a SENIOR! The joy of knowing you're the upperclassmen the freshman look up to and the anxious feeling of all the exciting things that are about to take place! It was such an incredible year filled with so many amazing memories, celebrations, and big decisions! So, let's celebrate this year & most importantly, YOU! The gorgeous/handsome person you are and will become! My number one priority is to capture the real, natural joy during this exciting time of your life and to pose you comfortably, confidently and guide you through your entire shoot!

Yay! It's Your Year!

Hey, Senior!

I believe you deserve the ABSOLUTE best!


senior experience

I only accept a limited amount of senior portraits each year because it is important to me that I serve you the best I can!

The Tauri Baum Senior Experience is meant to be fun, genuine, and blissful. I can't wait to meet you and look forward to the magic we are going to create!

Growing up, I have always shied away from having my picture taken, claiming I didn't look good and I hated my smile. However, when I met Tauri that immediately changed.

Tauri made me feel at ease while I was in front of the camera by guiding me through posing, smiling, and angle changes.



Tauri is one of the gentlest and kind souls I have ever met - seeing her face light up behind the camer at a good shot was an instant confidence booster. Not only did my portraits turn out to be ones that I absolutely love, but now I find myself smiling for pictures and am excited to be in them!

I aspire to find a career that comes as natural to me as photography does for Tauri! I recommend Tauri to anyone is need of a photographer - especially those who are a bit shy in front of the camera!


tauri is an artist!

genuine pictures that matched my personality and Tauri did just that.

Before my first session, I had never had professional pictures taken and was a little worried I may look awkward.


However, Tauri is just so real and made me feel so comfortable! I ended up having such a great time that I even scheduled a second session. I absolutely loved the way my pictures turned out!
