Maternity, Birth, Fresh 48, Newborn, or Family


Documenting your growing family is important to me! Having three young daughters of my own, I truly understand how quickly this time flies by. One day we are, as mothers, in the messy/nursing/yoga pants/baby-boo stage, then in a flash we’re talking to that same child about taking the bus and sleepovers! Sigh.

What this means? Have your family photographed! Outside. In your home. Wherever you feel comfortable, calm, and whole. You are investing in 20 years of experience, time shooting, time editing, posting, and communicating with families. I hope to be your family’s photographer not only now, but in the coming years as well! No In-Person Sales Sessions, or minimum print purchases required.

"Tara is exactly the kind of professional, creative, warm and patient person you’d want to document the most important moments of your life: weddings, births, family portraits etc. Her work is timeless and working with her is always seamless from consulting with her about what you’re looking for to receiving your beautiful photos. You will love being photographed by Tara!"

The experience of creating life will change you forever in countless beautiful ways! It is proof that you are the strong, powerful woman you have always wanted to be and you deserve to be photographed. Embrace this incredible moment and all the beauty that you are!

why do a maternity session?

I offer both Mini and Full maternity sessions. Mini sessions are 45 minutes on-location in your home, outdoors, or in the studio and are $225 for the session fee. The mini session can also be part of a bigger collection as an add-on to a newborn session.
The full session is 90 minutes, a $350 session fee (this fee does not include digitals) and allows for multiple outfit changes, hairdos, locations and more images to choose from!


Call as soon as you can to schedule your maternity session! Maternity sessions are typically scheduled between 30 - 34 weeks, but can be done anytime after that as well. If you are expecting multiples, often we do this between 25 - 28 weeks.



The extended Fresh 48 Newborn/Coming Home Session is a 45 minute portrait session to document everything about this fleeting time: those new little fingers and toes, snuggles with daddy, tender moments with mama, and siblings meeting baby for the first time!

why birth photography?

Let’s set up a time to talk on the phone or zoom and talk about your story, your hopes for your birth and answer all your questions about birth photography! The bottom line, this experience deserves more than any other to be photographed…and it is YOURS. My goal is always to hold space for you and quietly capture it all. 


Birth coverage includes my undivided attention and on-call service from 38 weeks until baby is born. That means I don’t travel, I don’t leave town, I am all yours, available at any time of day. There are a few packages available, starting at $1450, and all include: a consultation, a 20 minute micro maternity session (for mama only) with one 8x10 fine art print, on-call unlimited coverage of your birth including 90 minutes postpartum, 5 announcement images within 24 hours to share, automatic digital download from your birth available from your private online gallery.

Please contact me to learn about all the packages!



Your investment includes 2-3 hours of photography in the comfort of your home. The $350 session fee also includes time and talent, 15 years of experience with new moms and newborns, and an online gallery for viewing and sharing. Digitals which are an additional investment.

Are you interested in a Mini Maternity session and a lifestyle newborn session? I have a special package just for you! Give me a shout in my contact form and I'll send you all the details! 


I encourage you to schedule your newborn session as soon as you are ready to tell the world you are pregnant! But if you have had a difficult time getting pregnant or had loss, sometimes it takes us longer to commit to investing in a session like this; trust me, I understand, and trust me…you deserve to have this time documented. Let yourself feel the anticipation of joy!


As soon as your session(s) contract is signed and paid for I will send you information on what to wear and how to prepare. Us mamas have to stick together - and I want you to look and feel fabulous!

I pour myself into creating images of you and your children that you will cherish forever, not just this year. I offer full family sessions on-location in your home or outdoors that are an hour and a half of playing, wandering, connecting, creating; the full session allows us to all relax and let down - that is where the magic happens and those candid moments that you love are captured. This session fee is $350, digitals are an additional investment.

I also offer Limited Edition mini sessions on occasion, announced in the newsletter and social media. Please inquire for all the details!


Full family sessions are scheduled Monday through Thursday evenings and some weekend days. Most families schedule their session about 2-3 months in advance to get their first choice on a session date and time, but inquire anytime and I will get you on the schedule asap!


Be comfortable, be YOU! Let your family show it’s personality! When you are all set with your contract and payment I always send along info on how to prepare and what to wear, I’ve got you!

"I was connected with Tara through my doctor when I was looking for newborn photographers. I fell in love with her work and her personality and booked our maternity and newborn sessions immediately. Tara has this uncanny ability to bring out the best in people, not just with her personality, but with her work. Her eye for light and humanity is unmatched."
