Those early, seemingly endless newborn days quickly weave into a year you'd do anything to pause. It's during these moments, brimming with first smiles and soft cuddles, that capturing the essence becomes not just a want but a need—to freeze time, just for a bit, before the next chapter unfolds.

That’s where I come in. It's not just a Charleston Newborn Photographer, I'm here at the ready to be a storyteller for your family's most tender beginnings.

Let's debunk the myth: newborn photography doesn’t have to be a stress fest of awkward poses and patience tested by tiny tempers. Imagine a different scene—a studio that’s a haven of calm, where every detail from soothing backdrops to the softest outfits is thoughtfully chosen for you. Yes, that includes glamming you up with top-notch hair and makeup artists and styling your family to look their effortless best. It’s all about crafting an experience where the focus is purely on embracing the joy and love of your family’s connection.

Have a specific vision in mind? Whether it’s incorporating the vibrant bloom of seasonal flowers or weaving in a cherished family heirloom, I’m all ears. Your desires set the stage for a truly personalized Charleston newborn session.

The newborn phase is as fleeting as it is magical. Let’s ensure it's captured in a way that reflects the profound beauty and uniqueness of your family’s journey.

Remember, it’s not just about taking photos; it’s about pausing the un-pause-able, even if just for a moment.

Tara was flexible and made the whole experience seamless. From organizing my hair, makeup and wardrobe for myself and my son was a life saver!

The Experience

Design + ORdering Appointment

Session Day


Finished Artwork

Once your session is reserved, we'll meet for your planning appointment where I'll style you and your children from the client wardrobe and we'll discuss location and artwork preferences.

My hair and makeup artists will either come right to your home or to the studio and get you all glammed up! Then we'll have a relaxed and fun session together where you can focus on loving your children and I focus on capturing your connection.

We'll meet again to select the perfect images and artwork to display in your home. I will show you the mocked up custom gallery wall designs I've made for your home and we'll choose your images for your album. You'll place your order at this meeting.

About 10 weeks later, your beautiful artwork will be ready to pick up and enjoy in your home!
