Capturing Your Family's 





Moments, for forever






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 Grafton’s only fully posed newborn photographer, 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.

A studio filled with props, accessories, and outfits for both Mama’s and littles up to 12 months.

Four years in business photographing 100+ unique and beautiful newborns.

You canRelax now, mama

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.

Tara squeezed us in when my photographer could no longer take our newborn photos and it was the best thing that could have happened! My son's photos are beyond stunning and beautiful!

Tara is a beyond talented photographer but also just a great human

She is so welcoming and down to earth. She was so good with my son and me as a first time mom, what more could I ask for?! I can't recommend Tara enough!

-Gordon's mama, megan P.

She has an amazing talent with photography.

- Jameson's Mama, Janie B

 I loved how involved she was with my son for his 6 month milestone session. I am looking forward to booking more sessions with her. I would highly recommend her!!"

"Tara is so sweet and makes you feel very comfortable.

"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."

Wondering if you should add film to your photo shoot?

I believe that the value of a photograph can’t be measured. Not only are you going to look back on your newborn photos (and other milestones) hundreds of times over the next fifty years, you are going to share them with your children, grandchildren, and if you are very lucky, great grand children.

Professional photos take you right back to the moment in your life when your pictures were taken. The only thing better than looking through an album? Having a family film playing in the background with the sweet sound of your newborn grunting or toddler giggling. Watching in slow motion the moment your baby looks at you, smiles, and wraps their whole body around you and squeezes tightly.
