Oshawa Newborn Photography

serving the Durham Region and Greater Toronto Area

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.

 

As your Oshawa Durham Region newborn photographer, I aim to document this precious time in your life in a natural and beautiful way, creating timeless art for your walls and stunning albums that will become treasured heirlooms.

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). The studio is kept nice and warm for baby's comfort, and we usually begin with family and sibling photos, and baby with mom and dad individually. After that you get to sit back and relax in the client lounge as I photograph your sweet baby. You'll have full view of everything and can move around the space.

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 diapers and wipes
  • nursing pillow and cover available for comfort and privacy
  • hot water available for warming bottles
  • water, coffee, and snacks (often GF/DF options are available too)
  • lots of receiving blankets for swaddling or spit-up
  • bathroom with artificial-scent-free soap, and hand sanitizer
  • Blankets, wraps, headbands, bonnets, and other props and accessories are all provided
  • WIFI so you can catch up emails, news, or social media while you're relaxing as I photograph your little one

Peace of Mind

Your baby's health and safety are top priority. We are conscious of maintaining an optimal environment throughout our home, and especially in the studio.

  • the studio is in my home and the whole house is free from smoke, artificial scents, and pets
  • 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
  • my hands are washed prior to your session and throughout as needed, and I can wear a mask at your request
  • if anyone in my family is ill, I will contact you about rescheduling so your new baby isn't exposed to any viruses
  • I am trained in newborn safety and CPR certified

You don't need to worry about a thing!

The Process

1. let's chat

Fill out the contact form and we'll chat about your newborn session. Will you feature these images on a gallery wall, in an heirloom album that can be passed along to your little ones when they're grown?

 

We'll schedule your newborn session for when baby is about 8-12 days. Don't worry if babe isn't born right on your due date, there's no rescheduling fee for early or late babies.

 

The agreement form and retainer fee will hold your date for you, and a session prep email will be sent.

2. Your NEWBORN session!

After you arrive at my Oshawa newborn studio, we start with some snuggly sibling and family photos, and then you get to sit back and relax while I take photos of your new baby on their own.

 

Enjoy a hot coffee (decaf available too) and a snack or catch up on emails and messages while you oooh and awww over the adorable images being created in front of you! You'll have full view of the entire session so your little one is never out of site.

 

I love to photograph asleep and awake poses if babe allows, and family and sibling images are included in every newborn session, as I truly believe these will be the most meaningful as your little one grows.

3. gallery reveal and ordering

We'll set a time to view your images about 1-2 weeks after your session.

 

You'll enjoy a beautiful slideshow, and then we'll go through and select your favourites to include in your album, or display on your wall, and the ones you'll receive in digital format for sharing and making your own prints for friends and family.

 

Most clients upgrade their collection or add on additional items after seeing their images and all the options in-person!

Featured Newborn Sessions

Each gallery here contains images from a single session so you can see the type of images photographed in my Oshawa newborn photography studio, as well as an outdoor session in the Durham Region.

We were so impressed with Tara during our newborn baby shoot. She is an absolute baby whisperer and was able to capture some amazing shots, even when our baby was having a bit of a fussy day! She took a lot of time to make sure she captured lots of adorable images of our little guy. We would definitely hire Tara again.

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!

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.

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.
