Maternity photos document the start of your next adventure.

Whether it’s your first or fifth pregnancy, this is an extraordinary time for your entire family. When your baby arrives, there are so many more moments you’ll want to remember, and I know that you are looking forward to those days.

Booking a maternity session with me is one way to slow down and cherish this time, too. I'm here to care for every detail – including sharing bump-friendly dresses from my client closet – while you enjoy the moments before your child arrives.

Maternity sessions can take place in my studio in Cedarburg, WI, or outdoors at sunset. Want to include your partner and your baby’s future siblings? I typically recommend an outdoor session for a more candid, storytelling experience!

Kind Words

from Clients


Tara is patient in order to get the best photos. My newborn nursed between every pose, and Tara never made me feel rushed. She was supportive and helpful and spent THREE hours with me. 
My toddler was not in the mood for photos, but Tara finds a way to get a good shot no matter what. Tara’s studio is a safe, judgement free zone, and she recognizes the challenges of motherhood. 
I added a video to my maternity session and am so glad I did! It keeps the memory even more alive and brings me right back to that moment. Her videography work is beautiful and worth every penny!
I can’t say enough positive things about Tara Fay Photography and am so thankful to have Tara as my family photographer!

She cares about my session and my photos as much as I do. She makes me feel relaxed and important.

There is truly something special about finding a photographer you click with. Tara is everything I wanted and more. She is timely, efficient, caring, and extremely talented!
As someone who hates picking out and coordinating outfits, Tara is right there to help! She has sent me links to purchase for my husband and daughters, and her client closet is TOP NOTCH. It takes all the stress of clothing away for me. I can show up to a session and Tara will have dresses pulled and ready for me to pick from.

She was so gentle and patient when taking pictures of our son Jaxon. The pictures turned out beautifully. Would 100% recommend her as your photographer!!

She was extremely helpful in the process and listened to what theme/colors we wanted.She has the ability to capture beautiful moments that I will cherish forever and ever. 

Tara did an amazing job capturing both our maternity and newborn photos.

Any mommas out there feeling a little low during pregnancy or not confident? Tara takes the time to ask all the questions but also makes sure you feel so beautiful and confident in your dress/outfit. Her work is just amazing. I highly booking your next session with her!

She makes both of you feel very comfortable.

My husband and I booked out first maternity/professional photographer session with Tara and she was very fun and professional. She makes both of you feel very comfortable.

Ideally, maternity sessions take place between 32-36 weeks, and it’s never too early to book.

I recommend reaching out early into your second trimester, so we have an abundance of time to plan and dream the perfect session for you.

I’m here to help you choose the right session style for you! Take a peek at my in-studio maternity portfolio here, and browse my outdoor maternity galleries here.

If you want to include your partner (or your baby’s future siblings!), I recommend we head outdoors for lifestyle maternity photos. Or, if you want to show off your bump and glam it up a bit, let’s meet at my studio!

I know you might be tempted to buy a dozen new dresses showing off your bump, and while I don’t want to discourage you (shop away!), all Tara Fay clients have access to my extensive client closet. I have a range of maternity dresses, wraps and bodysuits that are bump-friendly -Take a look here! I have many more options than shown here and all of my clients get a complimentary style appointment to come in and try them on!

Approximately 3 weeks after our session, you’ll get an online gallery to view our images. You'll be able to upgrade to a collection that includes all of your digitals, and one with a print credit also. Your chosen images will download right to your computer. My store is also set up with custom heirloom products you won't find anywhere else, and my top collection come with $500 in print credit!
