The Experience

what to expect

 

scroll

They grow up so fast, and you don't want to forget a single thing. The way they curl right into you, their sweet newborn smell, the little coos they make, knowing they are safe and loved. That little swirl of hair, teeny tiny fingernails, and the adorable expressions they make in their brief waking moments.

 

As your Durham newborn photographer, I aim to document this precious time in your life in a natural and beautiful way. I love to document both asleep and awake poses if babe allows, and family and sibling images are included in every newborn session. I truly believe these will be some of the most meaningful images to your children as they grow. They will love seeing themselves in their parents' arms. And you'll always remember just how tiny your little one was in those first couple of weeks (they go by in a blur!)

 

To make things as easy as possible for you, I provide nearly everything needed for your session, whether in-studio or outdoors, and you'll receive a prep guide to walk you through the details prior to your session.

You don't need to worry about a thing!

The Process

1 - say hello

1. Say Hello!

I can't wait to hear about what you're looking for in your newborn session! I want to know all the details - when are you due, did you find out what you're having, are you wanting a studio or outdoor session, and any other important details.

Fill out my contact form to receive the full pricing guide. We'll choose a date and get it locked in with an agreement form and retainer so we can start planning your session!

2 - planning your session

2. Planning Your Session

In the colder months all sessions take place in my Oshawa newborn studio. In the warmer months you'll also have the option of an outdoor session.

I provide everything needed for baby, and resources to help you choose wardrobe for yourselves.

I'll choose props and wraps to use based on your questionnaire answers, which will determine the main colour scheme as well.

3 - ask me anything

3. Ask Me Anything

Leading up to your session, you're welcome to send me an email or text if you have any questions. Still not sure what to wear or how to style your hair and makeup? I can help! Send me pictures of your choices and we can decide together.

Did your baby arrive super early? Or maybe your due date has come and gone with no sign of babe yet? No worries, just keep me posted and we'll reschedule as needed.

4 - session time

4. Session Time!

Your session day is here! When you arrive I'll give you a little tour and then we begin with family and sibling images. After that, you'll be able to relax for a bit and catch up on the news or social media as I photograph your little one. In certain poses or props I may ask for your assistance as a spotter to ensure your baby is safe at all times.

The studio is kept nice and warm to keep baby cozy, and often we will stop once or twice for your baby to feed. We are still on baby's schedule, afterall!

5 - your images

5. Choosing Your Images

Yay! Your session is complete! Now we'll set up a Gallery Reveal and Ordering Appointment about 1 week after your session so you can see the beautiful images we created.

You'll choose the items included in your collection, and you'll be able to upgrade to add additional images, an album, and/or wall art to show off all your favourite images.

Digital images will be delivered in an online gallery within a week, and your printed items will follow.

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.

FAMILY NEWBORN SESSION

3 - Tanya and Scott

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.

WHITBY FAMILY SESSION

2 - Stef and John

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.

Tara has done a number of different types of photos for my family and she has been amazing! Her style, talent, professionalism, are just a few reasons why we keep having her capture these special moments. Definitely highly recommend!

WHITBY FAMILY SESSION

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. You can see she is very passionate and even gets excited over the photos she captures. Thank you so much Tara for capturing this moment in time for us! You'll definitely be seeing us again!

The Durham Newborn Studio

In the Stevenson and Rossland area of Oshawa, my home studio is located in our bright walkout basement (though you will enter the house through the front door). We usually begin with family portraits, and baby with mom and dad individually, and after that you don't need to do much aside from feeding your baby if they get hungry. Make yourselves cozy in the client lounge area and relax as I photograph your sweet baby. I may ask you to assist in spotting babe if an extra set of hands is needed for safety.

 

Making it Easy

The studio is stocked with the following, to make things as easy as possible for you:

  • seating area for parents within the studio area
  • changing table stocked with Honest Company newborn diapers and wipes
  • nursing pillow and cover available
  • hot water available for warming bottles
  • water, coffee, and snacks (please bring your own as long as covid regulations require masking)
  • lots of receiving blankets
  • bathroom with scent-free soap, and hand sanitizer

 

Blankets, wraps, headbands, bonnets, and other props and accessories are all provided. I pull out a selection of items based on your responses to the brief questionnaire you'll fill out when scheduling your session. Of course, if you have an heirloom piece or an item that's important to you, we can work it into the images as well, but you don't need to worry about anything else.

 

Peace of Mind

  • the studio is in my smoke-free, artificial scent-free, and pet-free home
  • all fabrics (backdrop blankets and wraps) that touch baby during the session are washed in a non-toxic, plant-based laundry soap, even if they aren't soiled, so they are fresh for every session
  • we do not use any aerosol air fresheners or cleaning products containing artificial fragrances in my studio

Say hello!

I'm excited to hear from you!

I'd love learn more about your photography needs, and see if we are a good fit for each other!
