Newborn Photography

Your baby will grow so quickly… I bet everyone tells you that, but it is true. That newborn, squishy period only lasts a few short weeks, and while it might feel like an eternity as you live on little to no sleep, it will be gone in no time. So many of my clients say “oh look how small he/she was” when they see their newborn photos a couple of weeks after the shoot. They can’t believe how much they have grown and changed since the photos were taken, so imagine how precious they will be in the years to go as their child grows up.

What to expect

Your newborn session will take place in your home. But don’t panic! Your house doesn’t need to look like something out of a magazine and I don’t expect you to have a spotless or perfect home (you do have a new baby after all!) I will give you lots of advice and explain how to get ready for the photos.

The session will be free flowing, adapting to you and your little one. There won’t be any expectations on your new bub, and we’ll just follow his or her mood… so whatever happens during your session, even if your baby is crying and only wants to be held, it doesn’t matter…this is a little piece of your life and that is what I want to document for you.  I do not use props like baskets or blankets or backgrounds, instead the focus is on your new baby in your home (and even your pets are welcome to be included.)

You will walk away with beautiful images whether your baby is peacefully asleep or wide awake.

Tara has taken beautiful photos of our family over a number of years now and I would highly recommend her. We have had two newborn lifestyle shoots with Tara and she is friendly, approachable, and has amazing patience with the kids!
