Milwaukee Family, maternity & Newborn PHotographer

No Matter What Stage of life you're in,
let's pause it together





Cake Smashes

If it was possible to freeze each moment in time, you would. Each moment your baby gets a little milk drunk and melts into your arms. The half-smiles that definitely count. The fact that your baby came out looking just like dad. Your family is precious. Whether you want posed newborn photos in my Grafton studio, or lifestyle newborn photos in your own home, I want to take the photos that will help you remember what you’ll soon consider to be some of the best days of your life.

As one of Cedarburg's fully posed newborn photographers, I promise to treat your baby like the delicate miracle they are, while capturing the newborn photos you deserve (after all, bringing a baby into this world is no easy feat).

You've heard before that babies don't keep

& you’re looking for a newborn photographer you can trust to capture these moments exactly as they are.

Have you felt the same way? I can’t be the only one who teared up a little a lot the first time my son wrapped his whole hand around my finger. I remember that feeling every time I’m hired as a newborn photographer. As I guide you through your outfit and prop selection, position your tiny baby during newborn photos, and cuddle your baby in between photos, I’m focused on making sure I capture every. single. detail.

^^ I’m talking about the tiny fingernails, stork bites, and the chubby cheeks you can’t stop smiling about.

Every time I look into my own babies’ eyes, I know 18 summers with them will never be enough…

What stage of your life can I help you remember forever?

Time is fleeting and there is a lot of love to be had before, during, and after the newborn stage.

client love

Choosing Tara for our newborn photos was the best decision we could've made! She was extremely responsive, considerate and sensitive to all our needs.

Handing your baby over to anyone as a first time mom is difficult, but Tara made us feel very comfortable.

She handled our fussy baby with ease! Not only was the experience great, but the pictures were even better. Truly priceless. We're so happy with them, honestly I would give her more than 5 stars if I could.

- Cooper's Mama, Amanda B.

Her studio is cozy, her set areas are perfection, her client closet it amazing, and Tara is so kind and personable.

-Kenzie's Mama, Meg H.

It was the best thing ever as a mom to hear "I'll have everything you need, just come on over!" She took all the thinking and leg work out of it. My daughter had so much fun and we got some beautiful photos that we will cherish forever. We are so excited for our fall minis! Thank you, Tara!

We worked with Tara for a first birthday cake smash/bath shoot for our daughter. She was wonderful to work with. 

"We had a great time meeting with Tara for our fall mini session. She was great with all of our kiddos and had a great plan all set for our time together. She even took time to listen to our ideas that day. The pictures turned out AMAZING!  

We also invited Tara into our home for a day in the life video which we will forever cherish.  

The shoot was easy, comfortable, and fun. Looking forward to the many memories we will be able to capture with Tara in the future."

As a newborn photographer, I know you want every angle and joyful moment captured

Take a Deep Breath

I also know that as much as you love the newborn photos you see on Pinterest, you don’t want to take one second away from adoring your baby to source every prop, bonnet, and headband.
