The Experience


Whether you're looking for a classic headshot for your business card or LinkedIn profile, or a full set of branding images for your website and social media, I would love to work with you!


Standard Headshots
These are done in my Oshawa studio. If you work in an office where multiple people need updated headshots, we can also chat about setting up a headshot day at your location.


I know you're busy, and with my years of experience and expertise, we can often complete a headshot session in 15 minutes or less. This allows you to pop in during your lunch break, or between appointments, and not have to take hours out of your day. You'll be right back to business in no time!

Branding Sessions

These can be done in a location that makes sense for your brand, whether that's your office, a co-working space, or outdoors. This can include a combination of headshots, lifestyle imagery, and flatlays or product shots.


Multiple wardrobe options and and brand props are encouraged.


Sessions are typically an hour, though may be customized depending on your needs.

All Headshot and Branding Sessions
Images are edited in a clean, true-to-life style, unless otherwise requested, and you are welcome to add the preset or filter you use with your brand when sharing images.

The Process

1. let's chat

Fill out the contact form and tell me what you're looking for in your headshot or branding session. Does your company have specific requirements? Are you working on a product launch and need images for specific content pieces? Give me all the details!


We'll schedule your session and coordinate with any location rentals, if needed.


The agreement form and retainer fee will hold your date and time for you, and I'll send along a questionnaire that will help me learn about your business or brand and plan your session.

2. Your session day

Your session day!


You'll arrive at my studio and I'll show you the space and where you can find items of importance, like a mirror, hairspray, and coffee.

We'll photograph you with the required backdrops, wardrobe, lighting and angles needed in order to give you multiple options to choose from.


Branding Session

We'll plan out the outfits and props for each set idea and work through them all, maximizing our time in the studio to provide you with a complete set of images to promote your brand and tell your story.




3. gallery reveal and ordering

Your proof images will be sent to you in online gallery within 48 hours of your session. You'll choose your favourites, and then I will polish them up and provide you with an online gallery of high resolution, downloadable images, plus any additional versions based on your needs (web resolution, square crop, black-and-white, etc.)





Standard studio headshot sessions include 2 digital images of your choice. You'll choose these from an online proof gallery that will be delivered with 72 hours of your session.


Personal Branding sessions can be done at my studio, at your location, or in another spot that fits your brand.

6 - Christine and Kyle

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.

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.

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!
