Hi, I'm Tara


Babies don't stay little forever, and it can all go by so fast. As a maternity, newborn, and family photographer based in Oshawa and growing up in the Durham Region, just east of Toronto, I adore documenting family snuggles and scrunchie-nose smiles. I know you'd love to freeze time, and photographs are the next best thing.


I'm also familiar with the struggles many couples face, having been through losses, IVF, and an ectopic pregnancy myself. I'm so grateful for my son, and I know you feel the same about your babies, regardless of your journey.


With over 10 years of experience photographing people, my goal is simple - create an experience and images you'll love and want to display proudly in your home.


If you're looking for a maternity, newborn, or family photographer who understands the importance of freezing time, you're in the right place.

"Tara is an amazing photographer! She made me feel really comfortable taking pictures, even though I’m very shy and introverted. And as a first time mom, you want the best professional to make eternal those moments. She did it flawlessly!!"

Tara is incredibly talented. She has done maternity and newborn photos for us and I could not be happier with them. She was so gentle and calming with our son and she was able to capture the most amazing photos of him. We will be using her for any future photo sessions and definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

To say I am not comfortable in front of a camera is an understatement. I usually delete about 99.9% of all pictures taken of me. Not only did Tara make my family and I feel comfortable during our session, but I loved pretty much every picture she took, and displayed them in our house! She captured our family perfectly down to my daughter's crazy personality. The pictures were just stunning and I can't thank her enough. I will absolutely be asking her to take pictures for us again.

We did our Maternity and Newborn photoshoots with Tara and I'm so glad we did! The photos are INCREDIBLE! We couldn't narrow down our favourites so we ended up purchasing all of them. She made us feel super comfortable which is reflected in the photos. She was so good with my newborn son, I actually learned soothing techniques from her! We also purchased an album and custom frame and are so happy with the quality, I cried when I saw it.

I have been looking for a Photographer to shoot long overdue family photos for a while now. I am so delighted to have found Tara! Professional, quick to respond and incredibly talented. Her stunning backdrops, lighting and the special moments she captures are nothing short of dreamy. When I first saw the Lavender Field photos of my little one, I cried. Truly magical! Tara really knows how to make children feel relaxed and confident. Thank you again, Tara!

We hired Tara to do our newborn photography for our first born and I couldn't be happier! From the first time I visited her website I fell in love with her style and couldn't wait to have photos of my own. Tara was professional and did everything possible to provide a safe environment in which we could gather. Thank you so much Tara for capturing this moment in time for us! You'll definitely be seeing us again!

These moments are the beginning of your

family legacy


I believe in the power of a photograph.

An image can make you laugh, make you cry, keep memories alive, and bring people together.

I love that my parents still have images up on their walls of us as babies. I’ve spent hours looking through photo albums, noticing how my pre-teen niece still gives me that furrowed brow she gave me in her newborn images. Seeing my first little ringlets in my own baby photos, and those same ringlets as they started forming at the back of my son’s head after a bath or a sweaty nap. Remembering how blonde my sister’s hair was, and how much we adored our baby brother. Imagining the lives and weddings of my parents and grandparents through faded colour or black and white images from the past.


The film negatives are long gone, but the prints remain. Today, digital media is changing constantly. Think about where we will be 10, 25, 50 years from now. How will you preserve these memories for future generations? Through a beautifully crafted album you can hold in your hands, flipping through the pages together, telling stories from the days when they were so small. Through portraits on the walls, of your babies, your family, posed and candid moments, smiles, snuggles, and belly laughs.


Albums and walls full of imagery, full of history, full of love.
