Let TARA photograph your life!

Last January 19th (my 40th birthday) I received this message through the contact form on my wesbite: Message: I am a gestational surrogate. This will be a gift to the lovely parents and their baby boy! My heart skipped a beat and I immediately wrote Kayla back! My affiliation as the Fresh 48 newborn photographer […]

The Birth of Primrose

December 23, 2020

Kaitlyn reached out to me via Instagram after seeing some birth photography by me, and hearing about me from her fab midwife, Morgan Gaines of Flourish Midwifery. We chatted over email, then phone to answer all her questions…the holidays came and went, January we chatted about my coming to meet her and her husband Jimmy […]

Last year I had the honor of photographing Everett’s beautiful entry into the world, birthed at home with her dada, grandmother and two midwives (see her birth story HERE!). Fast forward to December and her mama, Amanda reached out to ask about booking a Mini Milestone session for her one year old birthday in May, […]

Looking back at Amanda’s birth story with her Everett after 365 days around the sun, I still can feel the energy in that room! So much strength in that body, so much love and sacred space for a baby that both Amanda and Charlie had waited patiently for. And the connection between Amanda and Charlie, […]

April 26th will always have a special place in my heart – it marks the very first time I photographed a birth and my life as a photographer and as a human changed forever! This kiddo and the Card family are now part of my life forever – poor kid will probably always wonder why […]

The other day I had the opportunity to photograph Heidi and Alex and their two little girls, Hazel and Mazie at their home here in Dover, NH. After 4 weeks of these stay-at-home orders, I felt quite emotional seeing a family that typically I get to see whenever I want: at the gym, around town, […]

Yet, I am very, very aware that I am here […]

As a birth photographer I believe it is important to give the mother space after she gives birth to heal, to rest, to just be in her own birth story for awhile and let the memories of it ease into her. Personally, I am so eager to rush home and look at everything and show […]

So much can happen in a year. Some of us know more than others what this can mean. It can mean tremendous growth, it can mean large gains, it can mean great loss…it can mean all of those and so many more. One thing I do know for sure, having a little nugget like Ella […]

If I were single and childless I would photograph births 24/7/365; I love them so much that I actually don’t advertise that I do them all the time because turning down a birth is so difficult for me! It is my very favorite life event to document, no contest. Why? First of all, because holding […]

you're in!
