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 […]

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 […]

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 truly believe everything happens for a reason. Every person you meet comes into your life for a reason. You may not know why for years, or you may know right away. Some people we meet briefly and wonder if you’ll ever see them again. About 3 years ago, while my husband’s best friend from […]

As I get older I realize how life really does come full circle, that everything you do counts, that friendships last, that love is always beautiful (especially love between two people who are creating a little human life together!) – and that actually Facebook is kind of a gift. I went to high school with […]

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 […]

you're in!
