Let TARA photograph your life!

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, […]

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 […]

There is much more to my connection to this family than they may even know…life is so complicated, yet so beautifully simple: what we need, what we feel, who we come into contact with and when. There is a higher purpose to it all which I may never fully understand or be able to make […]

I’m not sure where to start with this blog post – there’s just so much to say about this little family! Photographing Ella Rae is extra special for a lot of reasons, but at the heart of it is love – is my late father (who I called “dad”, my grandfather Norm Walker). The new […]

I have to pinch myself all the time – I literally get to spend my weeks photographing expecting mamas, births, newborns and families, then editing them in the quiet of my office! If you could see my face while I edit, smiling like an idiot at my monitor while I cull and edit all these […]

I have known Kate and her big boy Frankie for a few years now – she is one of those people who you meet and pretty much immediately want to know if you can be friends – you know what I mean? Sweet, kind, super smart and clearly awesome. We first got to work together […]

Emerson is Born!

April 21, 2017

Ever wondered what true bliss looks like? This is it ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^!!!!!! As you may know, I first started photographing births in April 2016 and what a wild, wild ride it has been! I have learned SO much in 1 year: the difference between dilating and effacing, that a “due date” is completely irrelevant and should […]

Anyone who knows me (even for a few minutes) knows that I LOVE to photograph expecting mothers – and their new, teeny tiny little babies! (I love it so much that I will be offering birth photography collections in the future, but that’s for another blog post!) Lucky for me, 2015 was nothing short of amazing […]

Alison + Nathan

June 29, 2015

  Just about two years ago I photographed Alison and Nathan with their twin daughters on a beautiful early autumn afternoon. When I heard from Alison that she was expecting and wanted to book her maternity and newborn sessions with me I was thrilled! Then she told me her sister is expecting too – and […]

The Gift of Life…

March 30, 2015

As many of my friends and family know, the last year of my life has been incredibly challenging both physically and emotionally; I’ve meant to write about a dozen blog posts with advice on how to get through an emergency c-section and hysterectomy, one to specifically thank all the amazing people who helped me get […]

you're in!
